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.

10 Lagu Remix Mariah Carey Yang Paling Wajib

Tak ada musisi yang mengerjakan remix untuk lagu-lagunya sebaik Mariah Carey. Kebanyakan penyanyi membiarkan para DJ merombak lagu-lagu mereka yang memang sedang marak belakangan ini, sementara Mimi mengerjakan semua sendiri, baik itu dipadu dengan Hip-Hop ataupun EDM, remix dari Diva Internasional ini terdengar seperti lagu baru yang fresh dan tak jarang Mimi menyanyi ulang untuk versi remixnya.

Berikut adalah 10 dari sekian banyak lagu remix Mariah Carey yang dihimpun oleh VH1 sebagai bukti bahwa Mimi is Queen of the REMIX! Setuju?!

1. Fantasy (Remix) Featuring Ol’ Dirty Bastard

Versi ini merupakan lagu komersil pertama di dunia yang memadukan Pop dengan Hip-Hop dan kemudian menjadi trend hingga sekarang

2. Anytime You Need a Friend (C+C Club Version)

Versi remix ini dibuat hampir 11 menit di mana Mimi menyanyikan ulang lagunya dengan paduan elektro musik dan beat yang pecah

Pihak label melakukan reshoot untuk video remix ini yang dipangkas demi kepentingan komersil menjadi sekitar 5 menit saja

3. Heartbreaker (Remix) Featuring Da Brat & Missy Elliott

Tidak hanya Mimi yang tampil memukau dalam video, Da Brat dan Missy Elliott juga memberikan ledakan energi ekstra

4. Thank God I Found You (Make It Last Remix) Featuring Joe & Nas

Ballad yang disentuh dengan Hip-Hop apik dari Joe dan Nas, two thumbs up! *my favorite remix ever!!!*

5. Honey (Classic Club Remix)

Mungkin Classic Club Remix ini terdengar yang paling “tradisional” dari remix Mimi lainnya tapi tetap bombastis

6. Emotions (12” Club Mix)

Dibuat sedikit lebih “dark” dari versi aslinya membuat lagu ini membawa kita ke klub malam awal 90an

7. Loverboy (Remix) Featuring Da Brat, Ludacris, Shawnna & Twenty II

VH1 menyebutnya sebagai the Most Fun Remix all of time dari Mariah Carey, te o pe!

8. My All/Stay Awhile (So So Def Remix) Featuring Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz

Berani komentar apa untuk remix ini? AWESOME!!!

9. Always Be My Baby (Mr. Dupri Mix) Featuring Da Brat & Xscape

Smooth dan tidak hanya membuat kepala mengangguk tapi bikin high… hahaha…

10. Fly Away (Butterfly Reprise) (Fly Away Club Mix)

Dikemas hampir 10 menit dan memberi pengaruh besar pada Katy Perry untuk lagunya Walking on Air

Katy Perry hingga Mariah Carey Jadi Karakter Ikonik

Katy Perry, Mariah Carey dan Oprah Winfrey adalah ikon dalam bidangnya masing-masing. Apa jadinya ketika mereka ‘berubah’ menjadi karakter ikonin di masa lalu?

1. Katy Perry

Bekerja sama dengan Carine Ritfeld dan Jean-Paul Goude, Katy Perry didapuk untuk tampil di majalah Harper’s Bazaar edisi terbaru sebagai Elizabeth Taylor. Pelantun hits ‘Fireworks’ tersebut berpose sambil memegang potongan-potongan lukisan Andy Warhol.

2. Mariah Carey

Sementara itu, Mariah Carey berubah menjadi sosok Marie Antoinette. Ibu dua anak tersebut berpose di ayunan mengenakan gaun berwarna merah muda.

“Aku sangat berbanding terbalik dengan Marie Antoinette. Tapi menyenangkan bisa mengenakan kostum ini,” ujar Mariah.

3. Oprah Winfrey

Masih ingat dengan Glinda, sang peri baik di film klasik ‘The Wizard of Oz’? Tampil di majalah yang sama, Oprah Winfrey mengubah dirinya menjadi sosok sang ibu peri sambil mengenakan gaun dan membawa tongkat sihir.

“‘The Wizard of Oz’ adalah kisah spiritual kesukaanku dan Glinda adalah seorang ibu peri yang spriritual. Aku suka ketika ia bilang pada Dorothy, ‘Kau selalu punya kekuatan.’ Itu adalah sebuah pesan untuk kita semua; kau lahir dengan kekuatan dan kau selalu memilikinya. Tak peduli seberapa banyak jalanan kuning yang harus kau lewati, tujuanmu itu selalu ada di dalam hatimu,” tutur Oprah.

4 Penyanyi yang Pernah Menangis Saat Konser

4 Penyanyi yang Pernah Menangis Saat Konser

Kita semua pernah begitu terbawa suasana ketika mendengarkan lagu yang mengena di hati. Bisa sedih, rindu, ceria, atau apapun bentuk perasaan yang mungkin timbul. Tak terkecuali para penyanyi ternama. Mereka pun pernah terlarut, bahkan menangis saat membawakan lagu-lagu mereka di atas panggung.

Siapa sajakah? Dirangkum dari berbagai sumber, Liputan6.com menghadirkan empat penyanyi yang pernah menangis saat konser.

Beyonce

Mantan Personel Destiney’s Child ini pernah mendapat kehormatan bernyanyi untuk presiden Amerika Serikat Barrack Obama dan istrinya Michelle dalam acara ‘First Dance’ mereka sebagai presiden dan ibu negara 2009 lalu. Beyonce yang menyanyikan lagu klasik tahun 1940an At Last tampak begitu terharu melihat pasangan Obama tersebut.

At last
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

Oh yeah yeah
At last

The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Oh yeah yeah
You smiled, you smiled
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
for you are mine…

At Last

Mariah Carey

Mariah carey yang terkenal dengan suara empat oktafnya tersebut sempat tak mampu menahan air mata kesedihannya saat menyanyikan lagu I’ll Be There dalam acara memorial saat Michael Jackson wafat 2009 lalu.

You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back
Where there is love
I’ll be there

I’ll reach out my hand to you
I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

I’ll be there to comfort you
I’ll build my world of dreams around you
I’m so glad I found you
I’ll be there with a love so strong
I’ll be your strength
You know I’ll keep holding on

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness well it’s all I’m after
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

I’ll be there to protect you
With an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

If you should ever find someone new
I know she better be good to you
‘Cause if she doesn’t
Then I’ll be there

Don’t you know baby
I’ll be there
I’ll be there
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

I’ll be there baby
You know I’ll be there
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

Just look over your shoulder
Just call my name
And I’ll be there

Katy Perry

Sebelum membawakan lagu berbau motivasi Firework, Katy Perry pernah begitu terharu sampai menangis melihat respon penonton padanya saat tampil dalam BBC 1 Teen Awards di London, Inggris, 2010 lalu.

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep six feet under?
Screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
And when it’s time you’ll know

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through-ough-ough

Adele

Adele pernah begitu terbawa suasana saat menyanyikan lagu Someone Like You dalam konsernya di Royal Albert Hall, London, Inggris pada 2013 lalu. Saking dalamnya penghayatan Adele, penyanyi bersuara soul tersebut mendapatkan standing ovation dari penonton usai bernyanyi.

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I’ll remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Where Do I Start With Mariah Carey?

Took a lil walk through Times SquareSlate

Musically, Mariah Carey’s had a tough run of late. Her long-delayed upcoming album, now titled Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, was slated to come out last spring before being pushed back several times. With one exception, its would-be lead singles failed to make a significant dent on the charts. Just a few weeks ago it sounded like Carey might pull a “Beyonce”, and spring the album on us unawares, judging from a confusing interview she gave to Billboard.

Then last week, the album’s release date, May 27, was finally confirmed by a teaser that is as strange and rambling as the album’s title. The announcement has been called “weird”, “insane”, “bizarre”, and “ridiculous”, descriptors that are rarely far away when Carey comes up these days. If you’re not a long-time fan, or are only familiar with Carey’s current public persona, it’s easy to see how such an awkward promotional move would elicit little more than an eye roll.

And we should chuckle at her weirdness, to be sure. But Carey deserves to be taken seriously as an artist as well, and, unfortunately, she hasn’t always gotten her due in that regard. Carey’s popular accomplishments – she has the second-most No. 1 songs of any pop artist, for instance, behind only the Beatles (and possibly tied with Elvis, depending whom you ask)- are often downplayed by critics who don’t take her influence on the music world seriously, as Jody Rosen pointed out in Slate several years ago. She’s long been credited – or blamed – for spawning a breed of “over singers”. (Rosen called her “the most influential vocal stylist of the last two decades”.) Her vocal acrobatics are frequently dismissed as “passionless”, her songs scorned as fluff.

But don’t blame Mimi for the diminishing returns represented by her impersonators. She’s better than all of them. Not only has she co-written the overwhelming majority of her hits since her career began almost 25 years ago, she’s also proven capable of switching up musical styles effortlessly. After taking creative control of her career, she went from a pop singer with a big voice to sultry diva who sang with Ol’ Dirty Bastard (on the excellent, Puff Daddy-produced “Fantasy (Remix)”), Bone Thugs ‘n’ Harmony (the slow-jam deep cut “Breakdown”), and Jermaine Dupri (her smash hit “We Belong Together”, among several others). Her label assumed this would be career suicide. But she was a pioneer for the hip hop-pop hybrid that is now inescapable, paving the way for Rihanna, Beyonce, Katy Perry and others to embrace a more hip-hop sound.

But back, for a minute, to her weirdness. One of the things that makes Carey so endearing to fans is that she wholeheartedly embraces her idiosyncracies. She’s not afraid to get goofy with her lyrics (“If we were two Lego blocks even the Harvard University graduating class of 2010 couldn’t put us back together again“) or her music videos, signaling to everyone that while she may take her work seriously, she’s not afraid to poke fun of herself.

There’s much more to Carey than her feuds with rap stars and her heavily Instagrammed marriage to Nick Cannon. In fact, a remarkable number of her songs hold up beautifully.

Mariah Carey’s ‘You’re Mine’ Crowns Dance Club Songs Chart

YME 17thBillboard

Mariah Carey collects her 17th No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, as “You’re Mine (Eternal)” rises 2-1.

Carey first crowned the chart on her first try, with “Someday” in 1991. She’d tallied her most recent leader with her last charted title, “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” in October 2012.

“Mine” reached the Dance Club Songs summit via assistance from remixers Fedde Le Grand, Chus and Ceballos, Gregor Salto and Funkin Matt, and Riddler, among others.

The new leader previews Carey’s forthcoming first studio album in five years. Carey, the soloist with the most No. 1s (18) in the Billboard Hot 100’s history, says in the current Billboard cover story that she “wanted [the new set] to be something I could be proud of, whether it’s like, ‘Yay, No. 1 song!,’ and this and that. However things end up happening, we’ve all worked so hard. The true lambily [her family of hardcore fans] have all worked so hard to break all these Billboard records, and to have this incredible experience with me, that I want them to have this almost as a gift.”

Dating to the Dance Club Songs chart’s Aug. 28, 1976, inception as a national survey, Carey moves up among the artists with the most No. 1s. Here’s an updated look at the acts with the list’s most leaders:

43 – Madonna
22 – Rihanna
19 – Beyonce
19 – Janet Jackson
17 – Mariah Carey
16 – Kristine W
15 – Donna Summer
14 – Jennifer Lopez
13 – Lady Gaga
13 – Whitney Houston
13 – Katy Perry
12 – Enrique Iglesias
