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.

    E essa galera com avatar de Demetria e Gagueenha falando de flop? Menos, né meu povo rs. Ninguém fica 20 anos no topo, e mesmo hoje com todo VEVO, stream no Spotify e a porra toda nenhuma conseguiu alcançar a marca dela de 18 #1's, então baixem suas guardinhas aí e invejem menos. Então, eu não estou aguentando mais esses adiamentos. Ela já lançou tantos buzz singles, que vai precisar lançar um disco duplo pra enfiar tudo no álbum, ou simplesmente deixá-los de fora. Pra não ficar tão feio pra ela, deveria gravar novas versões, já pensou que coisa linda Triumphant e #Beautiful em versões solo? Só sei que eu amo You're Mine e ela tem que estar lá. Acho bem difícil Almost Home estar...

    Pra mim, a melhor época foi a do Emancipation Of Mimi, mas isso não porque todo mundo ouvia ela, mas porque foi o primeiro álbum que eu ouvi inteiro, que gostei inteiro, que eu falei para os amigos que era bom, que emprestei para meia ~escola~, que marco a minha vida, sem exagero. Os anos se passam e ouvir esse álbum é só saudades, mas já não consigo gostar das músicas dela como antes, não porque seja ruim, na realidade não é, não são, só o meu gosto pessoal musical que está diferente. Mas eu queria vê-la com aquele sucesso todo do final dos 90 e inicio dos 00 :)

    Como assim flopada? Ela é uma das maiores cantoras da música 'pop contemporânea', não precisa provar mais nada a ninguém.
