Getting on Mariah's case too much

I know a lot of readers think I get on Mariah Carey's case too much. I will always say she is a fabulous singer. But what goes on with her and Columbia Records is laughable, really. Next week, "Thank God I Found You" drops from number 4 to number 13 after spending a week at number 1 and a week at number 2. This single will drop off the charts faster than Gloria Estefan's "Music of the Heart."
I'm sorry, but this is because Sony manipulated the record to number 1 to keep Mariah's "record" intact. "Thank God" was never a number one record. Just tune into a Top 40 station and you will not hear it very often, whereas most of the real hits - by Celine Dion, Smash Mouth, etc. - are played nonstop. Pop music fans know a hit - it's a song that's played so often on the radio that you want to start screaming already. "Thank God" is not in that category.
I think the business of deep discounting and artificially boosting singles is a real disservice to artists like Mariah who are talented but have no way of gauging how their records are really selling.

Mariah's momentum (49,435) by Carol from Spain

Mariah didn't lose focus, she just shifted her priorities to her kids and husband - a husband that apparently didn't do the same thing. I'm over Nick and I think he's just a fame catcher that likes to live the LA life, meaning he likes to get as many women as he can in his bed so he can brag about it. Mariah faced this marriage with her head up and... read more

Fifht Harmony (49,434) by Carol from Spain

I don't like the song. All the respect to them, but too much autotune surrounding the sample and the whole song is over produced. My opinion.
