Why Are #1s So Elusive To Mariah Carey These Days?

Recommended Posts

How did #1s become so elusive to Mariah Carey?

Her last #1 single was 2008's Touch My Body.

Of her last 6 singles, 3 didn't chart :deadbanana: and the other 3 peaked at 88, 82, and 89.

Even in the late 90s and early 00s she had many singles that didn't chart.

How can some one with so many #1s suddenly not be able to chart well?

Discuss.

Elusive :kelly:

I think it's because of lack of promotion and huge time gaps between albums

Interesting theory. 

I guess the 5 years between her 2009 and 2014 album (if we exclude her recent christmas album) is quite a long time to go and would have meant the younger generations wouldn't know her as well and then she had another 4 year gap

Yes, because of this, she became irrelevant faster than Madonna. Madge was at her peak in her 40s

It's almost as if she's 30 years into her career and it's difficult to get a #1 hit this far into your career. Madonna's last #1 hit was in 2000. This doesn't take away from her legacy, though. Plus, Mariah has only released two non-holiday albums this decade with questionable single choices and terrible rollouts :somepoints:

 

Mariah has 18 #1 hits. Regardless if she does or does not get another one, that can never be taken away. This thread is a joke.

Could you please list the #1's Minazi Garbaj has attained in her decade long stint in the music industry please?

And I don't mean #1's on Porn Hub, i mean #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. 

Austin Mahone stans are getting brave.

It's not a joke, it's an actual discussion. @Burning Up raised a good point :clap:

It's actually less embarrassing to stan Austin than the supremacist. :iamdisgusted:

The fact this user defends Nicki's actions as "everyone makes mistakes" when she defended her rapist murdering boyfriend on social media

:iamdisgusted:

I've never been more disappointed in my life.

And I raise good points also. You made this thread to provoke me, I'm not stupid.

I never said you didn't, I was just showing how the thread was a discussion :cm:

There's a reason he put elusive in the title sis. Are we on good terms still? I can't tell. :( 

It was a light punch:gemma: I think it's funny

If you stop dragging my sexual life it would be ok
