    I know singles used to become unavailable after a time. I remember trying to get a record shop to order me a single and they told me it had been "deleted" and therefore it was unavailable.

      It's not like Maria did much better outside the US. Doesn't she like have only 5 or 6 top 10 hits in our hole?

        What was your point exactly ? That having a successful single on the charts depends on radio, spotify support and good video views ?
        Talk about stating the obvious.

            After Vision of Love hit no 9 in the UK, it took her another 2 years to see the Top 10 again. Mariah took a while to establish herself in the UK, It wasn't until her cover of Ill be there was released that she had another top 10. She had a good streak of top tens after that though. 5 years.

                It might have just been here. Particularly in the late 90s, they were trying to force people to buy the whole album for one song. So, quite a few radio hits were ineligible to chart.

                      Oh yeah but wasn't that because labels just didn't bother even releasing them commercially. I think that was more of a US thing cos in the UK radio doesn't count for the charts so there must have been commercial singles available? eg Torn by Natalie Imbruglia

                        Mariah had a streak of top tens from Ill be there to Honey which was 5 years, until the streak was broken by Butterfly which only hit no 22.
                        I never said she didn't have more Top 5's after her streak was broken. So no, my statement was completely correct.

                            There were no intentions at all, I actually think Mariah did amazing to have a FIVE year streak of Top 10's in the UK.
                            Maybe you should stop reading so much into everything.

                                  Yea. Melanie Martinez got a random massive hit with a Deluxe Track from her debut album, because a slowed down version of the song went viral on TikTok. I have even noticed the track is now suggested by Spotify's algorithm to my own play lists, even if it's one song I actually don't like.

                                        I remember Brooke Valentine had the Sweet Dream instrumental for her Blah Blah Blah song.
