Biography

Huntington, New York, United States (1990 – present)

Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1970 in Huntington, New York, United States) is an American pop and R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, actress, model and entrepreneur. She made her recording debut in 1990 under the guidance of Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola, and became the first recording artist to have her first five singles top the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Following her marriage to Mottola in 1993, a series of hit records established her position as Columbia’s highest-selling act. According to Billboard magazine, she was the most successful artist of the 1990s in the United States.

Following her separation from Mottola in 1997, Carey introduced elements of hip hop into her album work, to much initial success, but her popularity was in decline when she left Columbia in 2001. She signed to Virgin Records but was paid to leave the label the following year after a highly publicized physical and emotional breakdown, as well as the poor reception given to Glitter, her film and soundtrack project. In 2002, Carey signed with Island Records, and after a relatively unsuccessful period, she returned to the top of pop music in 2005.

Carey was named the best-selling female pop artist of the millennium at the 2000 World Music Awards. She has the most number-one singles for a solo artist in the United States next to Diana Ross (eighteen; second artist overall behind The Beatles), where, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, she is the third best-selling female artist and sixteenth overall recording artist. In addition to her commercial accomplishments, Carey has earned five Grammy Awards, and is well-known for her vocal range, power, melismatic style, and use of the whistle register.

    Se ela tirar You're Mine do cd vai ser muito fracasso. Não que eu goste muito da música, mas tinha até aquele videozinho dizendo a data de lançamento e tudo mais. Quer dizer, já está vergonhoso todos esses adiamentos. [2]

    Mariah's listeners always take a huge increase around November because of her Christmas songs and then they drop back to normal after January.

    @cleiton_ KKKKKKKKK, claro que não, antes tinha essa mesma percepção que você, mas com um tempo que você vai descobrindo mais sobre ela, você vai entender, e saber lidar com isso... Hoje em dia se ela aparentar ser muito legalzinha, eu já irei entender que ela queira fazer a linha simpática pra almejar/conseguir algo, pois pra ela boa imagem é TUDO! entendes?! O maior problema é que a Mimi ainda não sabe lidar com iniciantes, esse jeito cômico dela, só os fãs entende... Se continuar a ouvir, irá e adaptar.
