Appreciation (104,474) by Edward from USA
(Friday 8 December 2023; 23:43)
Merry Christmas to our MCArchives dysfunctional family. We agree, we disagree, we sometimes fight, get delusional and paranoid, but we are the MCArchives family. From the ones who post regularly to those who only post to remind us how Andrew should be banned, we love everybody.

When MCArchives came online, back when Mariah was still huge, things weren't any different than they are now. We even had the UK gang against the US gang, but here we are 25 years later fighting, lol. Thank you Eric for keeping the site running all these years and thank all of you for keeping the conversation going.

I agree. She congratulated Lil Nas X and now Brenda. She's just being a good sport. I love Andrew, but he should take a chill pill.

That was [a] great performance. Her words just flowed, no background singers needed.

She'd better up her game and get one of her Christmas shows on national television. She must be number one by Christmas Eve.

Mimi send Brenda flowers (104,456) by Edward from USA
(Thursday 7 December 2023; 21:58)
I was wondering if Mariah had congratulated Brenda. Mariah secretely knows Brenda will have to send some flowers back her way soon. Welcome back, for a moment I thought we had lost you there, lol.

That's weird, it's one of the highlights of the show. I could understand why she didn't include it though.

"Maybe I'm just being paranoid (our resident annoying cute friend Edward here thinks I am)."

You are, but it's good to see you're coming around. You now recognize that Brenda and her team just put in the work while Mariah and her team were resting in their laurels.

Her voice was in good shape for Memoirs. She sung IWKWLI live in many shows and it was great. From MIAM on, it has been downhill.

The general consensus from the comments is that really good promotion from Brenda and her label was the key factor. A new video and strategic promotion gave RATCT the little push it needed. We have still a few weeks to go. I'm hopeful.

True. Brenda who? I had never heard of her. I do really want "Last Christmas" to be number one though.

I don't understand. Streams are converted to sales. 150 streams equal 1 track sale.

RATCT had been reaching the second spot for four years consecutively. It's not like the song came out of nowhere. AIWFCIY was ahead on airplay and sales. It was just 2.5 M streams. Mariah should up her game with a couple of big televised events. She needs exposure. Here in NY, I haven't heard RATCT anywhere.

How it went down (104,414) by Edward from USA
(Tuesday 5 December 2023; 01:51)
AIWFCIY - RATCT
Streams 32.4 34.9
Airplay 21.5 20.7
Sales 4,000 3,000
Streams and airplay in millions, sales in units. Brenda is number one by 2.5 M streams. It's definitely a tight race.

Her video hasn't gather that many streams. Mariah's video has way more streams than hers and it is four years old.

It has a bullet at number 8 on the Hot 100. Before that it was still bubbling under.

You need to read without your Illuminati glasses on. I stated: "The music industry doesn't have much control over anything anymore. The music industry as we knew it, it's forever gone." They have some control, but not much. The control is in people's hands. Once the genie is out of the bottle, it's a wrap. Don't boycott Brenda now.

Let's be happy for Brenda. Mariah will be number one again eventually. Other songs have been gaining popularity too.

Labels don't have that much control, period. They have been trying to make artists, songs and albums happen for the longest that never went anywhere. Streaming changed the game, stars and hits have come out straight out of YouTube, streamers gave them that. Promoting helps a lot to bring attention to projects, but people ultimately decide. AIWFCIY has been hitting the top spot for four years in an row, give me a fat effing non-delusional break. Mariah and her team haven't sat their asses down, they have been pushing AIWFCIY way more aggressively than Brenda and her team. Brenda didn't write RATCT, she basically doesn't profit much from it. Stop with the paranoia and conspiracy theories. Wait, I think you're right, the illuminati and Brenda are working together. Who is Brenda sacrificing for the top spot? A lamb, maybe. Who has been boycotting that frail old lady Brenda for four years now?

That's not boycott or illegal. You don't have to listen to those playlists. Most people have their own playlists anyway, and Spotify is not the only streaming platform. Brenda wasn't at the top of some of those playlists before. Was she being boycotted since AIWFCIY hit number one? I thought we had moved on from the paranoia lambs tend to have about some mega powerful entity coming for Mariah. AIWFIY and RATCT are the Christmas hits they are because millions of people love them and got them there. You can discount, you can gift, you can pray, you can throw a lambtrum, but all that won't make a song popular or hit if people don't like it.

Have you been living under a rock? As an old time fan you should know about this performance. I'm hereby stripping you from your lamb status. Now you're just a regular fan. You'll regain you lamb status when you start purchasing and streaming AIWFCIY until it reaches number one again.

To be honest, I don't even know how RATCT is even competing with AIWFCIY. The latter is way more festive, the former would be like something to play on Christmas Eve. Maybe Mariah and Brenda agree to defrost together next Christmas seaon.

Apple Music is bigger than Spotify here in America. While I would agree Spotifiy is bigger worldwide, local streaming is what counts towards the Hot 100. Mariah is ahead of Brenda on Apple Music.

That's what I call a perfectly executed performance. She made it seem so effortless. I used to shove these types of performances in people's faces . Those were the days.
