Someone posted that if western world didn't celebrate Christmas, Mariah Carey would just be a local act..


It's no secret, most of her success like Janet Jackson is mostly in the states, with the exception of 1993-1995, where Mariah Carey actually had her biggest international abd European success with the eras of Music box, Merry Christmas and daydream, beginning in 1997,and her True R&B sound began, the decline in Mariah Carey particularly the European market was fast,, Celine Dion was on her way to outselling her in Europe, I was shocked that Africa preferred Celine Dion and Whitney Houston over Mariah Carey.

Every time she topped the billboard hot 100, many asked why is she so loved, it's well known and very not so secret that google Mariah Carey and payola in the 90s, and tons of stories about heartbreaker being discounted due to a lack in radio plays, same with lover boy and touch my body. Where it's been proven 4 Minutes was the top itunes song for 3 weeks so someone said she's losing the sales, someone paid radio to play that track every 5 minutes to make sure it went number one since hot 100 was both sales and radio based at the time in 2008.

Hung up was huge on itunes, but not radio as Madonna was blacklisted like the Dixie chicks were .

Like people stated some of those 19 number one's are bought way too much evidence actually backs the claims



But do you agree without Christmas would Mariah Carey still be here. Unlike Madonna and a few others she definitely hasn't been gaining a healthy audience outside of December and only in the US does she keeps getting recertified like Madonna does by The British phonographic industry.
