We're Not Makin' Love Anymore is a song Mariah performed with Michael Bolton at the 1990 NARM Convention.[2] The collaboration with Bolton was significant as it would be Mariah's first duet that introduced her to the music industry audience.[2] The song was originally recorded by Barbra Streisand for her fourth greatest hits album in 1989. According to sources, Mariah and Bolton discussed collaborating on a studio recording of the song but due to scheduling conflicts Mariah was unable to finish it.[3] Bolton would go on to record a version of the song with Patti LaBelle for his seventh studio album and for Labelle's studio album titled "Burnin'"[2]
