    OT but does what mean that you also support children's literature getting rewritten? 'Pippi Longstocking' initially used to include the n-word and there's a debate whether historic sources should be kept as such or altered for social/political reasons.

    Unconventional, but a classic nonetheless. Yes, it was a different time, but views have (luckily) changed and therefor I think it's great the new versions changed that line.

    From what I've heard, Franklin never did anything bad and seems like a nice woman. It who Knowles, Williams and Rowland who lead to the band's popularity rising to the next level, but it was wrong place, wrong time for Franklin.

    The first minute of this has me cackling... Farrah from Destiny's Child talking about her presence on Say My Name.

    Did you s... did you sin... um.

    I have hardly heard All I want for Christmas at all this year. I heard it once or twice tops.

    They both are. But where I live, All I Want For Christmas Is You is used on almost every tv-show these days.

    Two of the best voices in music.

    The only good thing about the holidays ending is GOAT will become Kween’s most streamed song again!

    Mariah is everywhere. Michael Bublé is doing great. Wham! is back in the charts.
    This is heaven.

    it's more popular with the younger generation

    It was done in 2010/2011 while his album was in production, it was agreed with David Foster and Michael and it on the Bungalow fan club forum.

    She doesn't thought, it was given royalty free.
    On his official forum there's a post by Michael's Management saying it was a good will gesture from Mariah Carey.

    Global Spotify:
    https://spotifycharts.com/regional

    Bublé has 10 tracks, so again he's doubled Mariah there, and for her album, it was released many years before Bublé and it's just a matter of time before he out sells it.

    That's when lambs will have something to moan about.

    Even a normal standard album, both released on the same day - Bublé sold more, had more Streams, more video hits. It seems more everything!

    Success isn't just about one song, it's about all areas.
    He sold more physical albums, digital albums, digital songs across the album and literally millions more streams.
    Reducing Mariah to one song is ridiculous.

    On Spotify globally Mariah has 4 songs: (Dec 25)

    #1 - AIWFCIY
    #53 - CBPCH
    #81 - OS
    #155 - OHN

    5 songs on Dec 24

    yadda yadda yadda, so Michael sold more and was streamed more, but you make it seem like Mariah has 0 sales and flopped... lol

    Her album, Merry Xmas (1994) is currently charting in 16 international albums charts (8x Top 10).

    Incl: major markets such as: USA, Canada, Australia, Italy, Netherlands, and the entirety of Scandinavia.
