Had the album been released when initially scheduled I think this would have been best:
1. #Beautiful
2. You Don't Know What To Do
3. Thirsty
4. You're Mine/Dedicated


A good choice on singles there, I agree with that list 100%.

"Dedicated" imo is so perfect and on point. It could have been the "I'm Real (Remix)" of the decade with it's slick midtempo perfection.

1. #Beautiful
2. Thirsty/You Don't Know What To Do (Double A-Side)
3. You're Mine
4. Dedicated

The label wants YDKWTD, Mariah wants Thirsty, they could've released both as a double a-side. A two part music video ala ILT-WBT with Thirsty coming out first then followed by YDKWTD. Send Thirsty to urban, YDKWTD to pop.

Do people even do double a-sides anymore?

"Dedicated" wasn't going to be a mainstream hit because urban music isn't big right now, but there is no reason "Dedicated" sat there as an album track. Why wasn't it ever sent to urban stations?!?!

Debating why stuff happened around this album is like debating the bermuda triangle. Who knows what was going on

Double A side? I know YDTKWTD sounds like the 70s but it's not anymore. 😂

Trap music is really big on Urban right now.  I don't know how "Dedicated" would have fared on that format.  Its throwback nature would have done better on UAC.

I would have gone with


#B
Thirsty
Dedicated

To go totally urban would have been risky, and that's exactly why it would have worked imo.

I think the album is good. I thought Meteorite should have gotten a push, but maybe we will get a larger budget to promote the first single for the new album.
