The longest time (105,327) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Friday 9 February 2024; 01:13)
I know I just said last week for MC to take her time with releasing MC16, but I have found waiting is going to be hard to do since her Grammy appearance. I guess I don't have a choice, but to wait.

Rainbow25 and other new songs (105,326) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
(Thursday 8 February 2024; 22:55)
Do you all know about this account called "Carey Insider", anyone knows how reliable they are? They have an ongoing feud with the other insider account, apparent the other account steals info from Carey Insider. Anyways so Carey Insider posted that Mariah is going to release an extended Heartbreak Remix Version, which if true yay because I love Heartbreaker and its remixes but it is also random haha they have the hashtag Rainbow25 with it so I don't know if it's for an anniversary edition? In addition to this they post a lot of songs Mariah registered like "Better Together", cover of "Who's loving you", "Tiiime" and "It's Time", "Hello" and a lot more. I know these should be public records but I don't know how to verify haha. Also says fans of re-recorded remixes are in for a treat. At this point there's so many different projects Mariah has been rumored to be doing haha I'm like how is it even possible.

They are also talking about Woman of the Year. Mariah hasn't done much in years. That's either Taylor or Beyonce.

I don't blame Ariana, she's just playing the game. Mariah also played it like everybody else did back then, but things were different in terms of quality and value.

We had the Maxi Singles, The remixes that didn't resemble the originals, the discounted singles that were released when songs were at their peak in airplay.

Debuting at #1 was a rare feat, but now it doesn't mean much. Lil Nas X's Old Town Road trumped the One Sweet Day record by putting out many remixes that kept the song going.

I agree. I mean, she did topple Taylor and Adele from the top of the Billboard Top 100.

It would've been top 10 without all the remixes. A top 10 debut used to be a big deal, it could've been top 5 even, and that would've been great too. But it's all BS now.

Megan got more sales than Ari without a dozen remixes. Yeah, she added some later, but not 12 or so. I really lost respect for Ari for that, even if it was her team. She knows damn well what they're doing.

I can't remember what publication had an article about how a #1 debut doesn't mean what it used to in the age of streaming. Especially when they drop like lead after the first week. Oh well. Hate the game, as they say.

I think it's going to be Beyoncé. Eventhough Taylor had the T-Swizzle nickname it was never a "popular" nick name. They just had it for the one collaboration. Queen Bee on the other hand is a well known nickname. Although honestly I don't really get the hype. Or maybe it could be Rihanna. I wish it was Mariah and this year would be the year of Mimi haha.

I did not realize that Ariana's "Yes, And?" went to number for a week. I mean, I used to visit the chart every week, especially the late 90's and 2000's. And every Christmas season since AIWFCIY went to No.1. Other than those times, not so often. The truth is, I miss seeing Mariah in the chart, not only during Christmas. I know her prime years are behind us, and it will take a miracle to see her again on top. However, I still believe it is not impossible. Thus, I hope her next release (if there is truly one) will do that for her like another TEOM moment. Well, we can only hope for nowadays, and there's nothing wrong with staying positive.

It's really tough to figure out. I will go with Queen B first then T- Swizzle. T-Pain gave Taylor her nickname. The only really that I wouldn't go with Mimi is because she has never done a stadium tour. I don't think her voice could hold up with all of the humidity during summer. Could MC sellout stadiums across the U.S. for a stadium tour?

Did you all see they will be revealing the Billboard Woman of the Year award and gave 3 hints?
• She has made Billboard charts history.
• She has sold out stadiums on tour.
• She has a popular nickname.
Before I even saw the hints I was like oh well it's gonna be Taylor again, plus she has been selling out stadiums. But as far as I know she doesn't really have a popular nickname. The first and third applies to Mariah. Did she have sold out stadium tours? Other than Mariah it could maybe be Beyoncé.

(Wednesday 7 February 2024; 23:58)
I think the only reason this even went to #1 is because her fans were starving for her music and had almost given up hope that she would release anything anytime soon, and because she basically used a controversial topic to boost publicity and get people to listen to it to see what tea she spilt. The controversy being her relationship with SpongeBob and breaking up his family, and using lyrics like why do people care about whose d-word she rides.

Wow. That was a time when radio airplay and physical CD sales increased substantially each week to keep a song at number one. Pop radio doesn't put new song in heavy rotation anymore during the day. Instead you hear a 2 year old song that was a hit for an artist. Also, radio programmers have ended the Top 5 at five or Top 8 at eight listeners voting countdown shows. The Urban AC is a flip flop between songs each week for the top spot. Plus, I don't think her new album is going to be a huge seller. Too many factors like the Max Martin's outdated sound and releasing a single or two months in advance to insure a huge sales week. I am sorry to say Eternal Sunshine may be DOA. Maybe I am wrong.

Super Bowl (105,314) by Mimi L. from Empower Your Highlighter
(Wednesday 7 February 2024; 23:35)
While he can do new features, it is unlikely. Super Bowl is a huge moment, he would want to shine the spotlight on himself and his catalogue for the nostalgia plus new album. It's a tight 12 minute schedule too and he has many hits which he'd want to perform so wouldn't have much time to go out of his way to include Mariah.

Ariana "Yes, and?" debuted at #1 but it has dropped to #17 and dropping on its second week and with a negative bullet. Do #1's mean anything anymore? When a song debuted a #1, it would hold its position for at least an extra week or it would stay in the top 5. Things have really changed.

Usher could make it work with something like Big Energy remix. Maybe a Papers remix with MC's vocals on a new verse.

That's my line of thinking, if he does bring her out what song would they even perform? No casual listener knows "How Much". So it doesn't make sense for her to be there. I wish she was on Love In This Club Remix where she was supposed to be the original feature. But yes I don't see MC coming on the Super Bowl with Usher. Justin Bieber might be there though.

Usher and MC don't have a hit together so it wouldn't make sense for him to bring her out. I could see him bringing out Alicia Keys to sing "My Boo" because that song was a huge hit. Super Bowl performers don't get a long time to perform and Usher has so many hits that MC isn't needed. MC said herself in an interview that Usher doesn't need her to put on a show at the SB (not verbatim). Plus, their performance styles are different. Usher is very energetic and moves smoothly whereas MC stiffens up on stage and can be somewhat dry. I can't see it guys. Sorry.

No, Usher's show is too high energy for MC unfortunately. She might look out of place on stage with him and his highly choreographed show.

Mariah Carey signed with Range Media Music (105,306) by T from USA
(Wednesday 7 February 2024; 15:07)
According to this article Mariah Carey is signed with Melissa at Range Media in the music department. If you read the article you get all the details but basically they use Capitol Music Group for distribution of all physical and digital media and they use Virgin Music for all the marketing and commercial connections. Mariah is still followed by their Instagram page so I'm assuming nothing has changed in the last two years. This will probably be the company releasing her next album. I hope they use her well. My real wish is she would've signed with Columbia at Sony or return to Island Def Jam at Universal for the next album. A return to Universal would also allow her continue the MC30 stuff with them.

Dou you guys think there's any chance she could appear alongside Usher? That was said a few months ago but I guess Usher was just teasing.
