Probably because she does well on streaming - also, elsewhere? UK aside, what other countries is she regularly getting certifications in?stevyy wrote:so why is her catalogue getting all these random re-certs in the UK and elsewhere? Mariah may be a legacy act today... but what's so bad about that? Her last compilation album went silver in the UK.
That's good then - just out of interest, outside of her Lionel shows, how many times has she performed to 10,000 people in the last 5 years?stevyy wrote:Mariah is not a huge touring act, but she is touring regardless. So she can do that. Maybe she cannot perform for 60,000 people in one venue... but as long as she can get 5-10k per concert that's fine as well.
I'm not dismissing her - her career has become shocking. I fully supported her with #Beautiful and rooted for its success. But it was just another project mismanaged, another issue she failed to face into.stevyy wrote:I am sure that Madonna is not going to sell 1m copies of her future albums either... almost nobody is selling that in traditional sales anymore. I believe that Mariah has it in her to get another album selling 500,000 worldwide.. Maybe that is the point in which we differ. What dismissing her like that and counting her out is very Glitter-backlash from you.
I'll make a prediction right now - Mariah will never sell 500,000 copies of a new studio album again.
I've only attended one concert in the last year, and it was not Mariah.stevyy wrote:i think you insinuated that Mariah Carey doesn't have a dedicated fanbase... but weren't you at one of her concerts last year?
