25 Lagu Yang Berhasil Debut di No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 Chart

Billboard Hot 100 masih jadi kiblat untuk menakar kesuksesan sebuah lagu, untuk mencapai puncaknya diperlukan angka penjualan dan airplay yang tinggi dalam batas waktu satu minggu, bahkan di peraturan barunya, Billboard menambahkan angka streaming baik di Spotify ataupun VEVO untuk menentukan juara mingguan.

Mariah Carey merupakan solois dengan #1 hits terbanyak hingga saat ini (18 hits) dan juga satu-satunya penyanyi yang berhasil debut di puncak tangga selama 3 kali, bahkan 2 dari 3 lagu tersebut berasal dari satu album yang sama yakni Daydream.

Rekor paling ajaib yang belum terpecahkan (dan hampir tidak mungkin terpecahkan) dari Mariah Carey adalah berhasil debut di peringkat satu dan bertahan hingga 16 minggu dengan lagunya One Sweet Day. Mungkin ada yang bisa debut langsung di nomor satu tapi mempertahankan hingga belasan minggu hampir mustahil, ada juga yang bisa bertahan di puncak hingga belasan minggu tapi tidak diawali dengan debut di peringkat satu.

4 Lagu Patah Hati versi Metro TV

Mariah Carey WBTMetroTV

Musik sering dijadikan pelarian bagi mereka yang tengah patah hati. Terlebih, jika liriknya sesuai dengan apa yang dialami.

Mendengarkan musik kala patah hati tentu lebih baik daripada melakukan perbuatan nekat yang membahayakan. Bahkan, tak jarang musik membuat hati yang pilu sedikit lega karena mendapat sedikit ketenangan.

Berikut empat lagu yang berkisah tentang pahitnya patah hati.

All We Ever Do is Say Goodbye – John Mayer
Mungkin John Mayer bisa menjadi penawar hati atau sebaliknya, justru membuat semua kenangan manis dan pahit teringat kembali. Lagu ini kurang lebih mengungkapkan sebuah hubungan putus-sambung, kesalahan yang selalu berulang lagi dalam sebuah hubungan. Lagu ini terdapat dalam album ‘Battle Studies’ yang rilis pada 2009. Suara khas Mayer dengan nada melankolis akan membuat lagu ini semakin menyatu dengan perasaan Anda yang sedang pilu.

We Belong Together – Mariah Carey
Siapa tidak terpikat dengan suara indah Mariah Carey? Salah satu lagu patah hati dari Mariah Carey yang berjudul ‘We Belong Together’ sangat cocok bagi mereka yang terus mengutuk diri akibat hubungan yang kandas. Lagu ini akan mengingatkan Anda akan masa-masa indah menjalin hubungan, seperti kenangan saat bertelepon ria hingga subuh.

Every Breath You Take – The Police
Bagi para pria yang merasa sedikit gengsi jika mendengar lagu patah hati dari penyanyi pop melankolis, coba dengarkan ‘Every Breath You Take’ dari The Police. Meski musik pada lagu ini seolah tidak mencerminkan hati yang luka, tetapi liriknya cukup mewakili perasaan yang merana akibat kehilangan sosok tercinta. The Police tampaknya memikirkan betul bahwa ‘Every Breath You Take’ akan menjadi lagu patah hati tanpa memberi kesan cengeng.

End of the Road – Boyz II Men
Judulnya sudah menjelaskan isi dari kisah pada lagu ini. ‘End of the Road’ terdapat dalam album soundtrack film ‘Boomerang’ yang dirilis pada 1992. Dengan irama lembut, lirik yang dalam, lagu ini pantas untuk didengarkan sambil Anda meratapi hubungan yang kandas. “Can you love me again like you loved me before?” Jleb.

Mariah Carey Graces the Coast

20121229-105821.jpg

Gold Coast

She’s the biggest artist to visit the Gold Coast since Whitney Houston shared the bill with Frank Sinatra for The Ultimate Event at the opening of Sanctuary Cove in 1988.

Mariah Carey is an undisputable diva among divas — and not just because of her notorious penchant for the six-star life. (Interesting fact: She owns Marilyn Monroe’s white piano).

Like them or loathe them, Carey, Celine Dion and the late Houston are renowned as the world’s top three divas because of their vocal powers.

There’s a very good reason Carey has remained at the top of the pack since she released her debut album 22 years ago. She has a five-octave vocal range — and isn’t afraid to use her whistle register! (Interesting fact: The whistle register, also called the flageolet, is the highest register of the human voice, above the modal register and falsetto).

Ranked second this year on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music list, Carey’s voice earned her a place in the Guinness Book Of World Records and the title “songbird supreme” for the highest range of any recorded singer.

Carey high note is G#7 — known as the dolphin squeak. The kind of note that can shatter glass.

She has clocked up total album sales of more than 200 million worldwide, a figure that keeps rising every Christmas when new legions of music lovers discover her 1994 Merry Christmas album and single All I Want for Christmas. (Interesting fact: She co-wrote and co-produced the hit track with Walter Afanasieff.)

In 1995, Carey made history when her duet with Boyz II Men, One Sweet Day, spent a record 16 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100. The songs remains the longest-running No. 1 in US chart history.

The proud owner of more No. 1 US singles than Elvis, Carey’s tally of 18 is second only to The Beatles (who have 21) and light years ahead of “pop culture icon” Madonna.

She has five Grammy Awards, 17 World Music Awards, 11 American Music Awards and 31 Billboard Music Awards to her credit but unlike Whitney and Celine, Mariah is not only a singer and actress but a songwriter and record producer.

Of course, if it looks like a diva, quacks like a diva and walks like a diva, it isn’t necessarily a diva. But if it sings like Mariah, well … it’s perhaps the world’s greatest living diva.

Don’t be fooled by the choice of venue for the first show of Mariah Carey’s first Australian tour in 15 years.

Carey, 42, is playing the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre because Jupiters has subsidised the show (just as Mike Gore did with Whitney and Frank at Sanctuary Cove).

If they hadn’t, she wouldn’t be playing the Gold Coast at all.

She’s too big a diva, dahlings.
