She won’t touch Mariah’s record. The last few eras she’s only managed one #1 per album, she’s maybe got 1-2 more #1s left in her at most before hitting her mid/late thirties.
In this day and age... she will get MASSIVE streams especially teaming up with the hottest males, I smell another Drake collaboration which will probably stay at #1 for 10-14 weeks. Another #1 with cardi 5-6 weeks, another #1 with Kendrick 3-4 weeks, another #1 solo, another #1 with someone else, and another #1 with someone else.

I think the limit for her is 25-30 #1 singles in the United States.

Mariah will be lucky to reach 19 with AIWFCIY.

But that's all fine. I look at #1's as if they were Tennis Grand Slam Titles. And Mariah has been the Steffi Graf of music. Madonna being the Navratilova and maybe Rihanna will become the Serena.
I see what you did there :D
25-30 #1
I do think Riri can surpass MC record by 1.
But Mimi still has some other records to break.
Baby too much is never enough. More and more 'til we both overflow...

I find it funny how Mariah goes completely undetected for days or weeks at a time every year. It usually happens around January too. Lol

No doubt shit went down with Tommy and he clearly scarred Mariah for life, but what I always wondered is if it was really that bad then why write about missing & loving him on Petals several years after the divorce?

And no, Rihanna won’t break Mariah’s record. She’s now in her thirties and will soon find herself in Katy Perry territory. Streaming didn’t save Anti. She probably will have many more top 5-10’s tho.

Mariah just had the MOST SUCCESSFUL Christmas season in her entire career.
And suddenly she is elusive...... :roll: :roll:

If Mariah/Sony were smart, they would capitalize on the positivity, hype and momentum of Christmas

Christmas is done dahhling. Regardless of how successful her Christmas music has been, pushing a non Christmas single off the back of a 25 year old Christmas classic isn’t going to have any effect. They are two very separate aspects of her career now.

The only “momentum” Sony has at their disposable with Mariah is to throw cash at a single and that is not likely to happen.

I think that's precisely the reason why she's enjoying a well deserved rest. 8-)

ANNOUNCEMENT
Image

At the end of this month, the way UKMIX discusses Mariah is going to change.

As you might've seen, there are going to be some changes to UKMIX - to enable these changes to occur, the site will be taken offline for a few days. I would encourage you all to familiarise yourselves with the aforementioned, linked topic.

As part of those changes, I will also be trialling something new - with our Mariah Carey community at the heart of it all. It's no secret that you - our Mariah Carey community - are a large part of what drives UKMIX forward. Just look at the stats for the last three months: hundreds of posters have contributed almost 40,000 posts and the Mariah topic alone has had a million page views in that time frame. This is clearly an area we can grow further and improve. And that's where the concept of MariahMix comes into play.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've consulted with 20 different Mariah fans and sought their feedback, and over the 3 months prior to that, I've consulted with around 50 other posters to help provide a balanced view: is MariahMix a good or bad concept? What we've decided is to give the concept of MariahMix a go. Essentially, Mariah will have her own forum within the new UKMIX called MariahMix. It will be accessed like this:

Image

We will move away from a single discussion topic, towards a similar operating model to FOMM - individual topics to discuss individual issues. We're yet to fully determine the guidelines but the general principle will be: if there's a Mariah news story, it gets its own topic. We might have a topic opened to discuss her Twitter updates, we might have a topic opened that pits Mariah songs against each other (a Mariah only version of our historic UKMIX favourite game Soundclash), we might have a topic opened to discuss the most recent events in the Stella/Mariah legal battle etc. To help keep discussions in check, the forum will have an archiving system to ensure only the most up to date discussions are visible (we're yet to decide what this looks like but it might be that topics that haven't had a reply in 2 weeks get archived). Longer term, I will also be looking to add a Mariah-meets-UKMIX style to UKMIX (so that those that want to have a Mariah custom style instead of the traditional UKMIX style will be able to select it).

Now, one caveat that I want to be open about upfront - as part of launching the new UKMIX, we will be introducing a new Premium User facility to help fund the site. This will help support with keeping the site online. With MariahMix, only Premium Users will be able to open new topics and only Premium Users will be able to select the Mariah themed style once it's designed and live (Standard Users will still be able to participate in all of the discussions though). The cost of premium membership will be in the region of $12 per year (US $ if international or £12 if you're UK based) and it will give you access to between 30-40 enhanced functionalities (some of which are documented below):

Image

In a nutshell, our Premium Users will drive discussion in MariahMix.

In terms of moderation, bm08 will continue and will be the sole moderator of MariahMix - we've agreed that should the need arise, we will appoint another moderator at a later date. We will hopefully be able to share the guidelines for MariahMix prior to the forum going offline on 25th January - if you have any suggestions or would like to feed into those guidelines with ideas, please message bm08 or myself. We will be reviewing the progress of MariahMix 3 months post introduction to see how things are going and at that point, we'll seek your feedback on how we can improve things further.

Whilst I appreciate this may not be to everyone's liking, the general view among the Mariah fans surveyed was overwhelmingly positive and I would ask that any negative views are constructive. I'll post further details on the Premium User functionality in due course (including details on how you can purchase this option, should you wish). Any queries, let us know!

I want everyone to see this announcement, so I will be creating a poll to draw people's attention to it for a few days.

"Similar operating model to FOMM"
"Standard users won't be able to open new topics"

If people were so excited about the FOMM model they would sign up to FOMM. Most of us aren't fans of FOMM - it isn't without reason they have like 10 users left who seem bored most of the time.

It's clear now that UKMIX is looking to monetise the platform instead of just covering the costs of running it, otherwise opening new topics would be for everyone. With this segregation you're forming 1 big clique, who will then decide the talking points, empowering them to shut down standard users they don't agree with and within a year you'll find that you have 10 users left, see FOMM. MariahMix will drive out fans of other artists, when the opposite should be focussed on.

All you had to do was adding a donation option, update the functionality and start attracting other fan bases, but at the core of it all is money, simply covered up by a bunch of excuses, trying to make the Mariah fans feel special but it's all just fishing bait.
