Mariah Must LOVE Brazil!

| Filed under: Music MinuteMariah Carey


If she doesn't, she should!

Mariah Carey's new music hasn't been fairing too well state-side, but in Brazil, she is an EPIC star.

Her Foreigner cover, I Want To Know What Love Is, a song that barely got ANY airplay here in the US, has been on the Brazilian charts for 20 consecutive weeks - at the #1 spot!!


The song has received the honor of being the longest chart-topper song in the country's history! That's just crazy! They must really like their remixes!

Congrats MiMi! We'd get down there STAT to thank those folks for saving your career!

    that's only because here in Brazil, the song plays on one of the most watched soap operas… i dont know if it wasnt for that, it would be so famous! :P

  9. 9

    That's because the song is the soundtrack of the most famous soap opera in Brazil … and it's always playing at prime time tv …

  10. cfp says – reply to this


    The soap opera is as shity as mariah`s song…

  11. 11

    No surprise there. The Third World love rejects, laughingstocks and faded, forgotten old has-beens from the US like Mooriah and Hagdonna.

    Re: gino – Mariah Scores Five Months At #1!
    Congratulations to Mariah for topping the Brazilian Airplay Chart for 20 consecutive weeks with "I Want To Know What Love Is!" Mariah's cover of the Foreigner classic has been at #1 since October 2009 and it is the biggest hit of 2010 so far in Brazil. "I Want To Know What Love Is" also has the distinction of being the longest chart-topper in the history of the Crowley Broadcast Analysis.

    Many thanks to the Brazilian fans who have supported Mariah! Great job!!

    maybe on the AIRPLAY chart- NOT sales LOL! Song and her entire album were disasters - even in the US (her biggest market). IDJ is in the red now from that album lol.

  22. 22

    She needs to stop sewing herself into her clothes and start dressing her age. It's ridiculous.

  23. 23

    well, that's only because the song has been played in a major soap opera, as a love song theme for one of the most important couples in the story. so there you go…

    New Acting Projects for Mariah
    Mariah Carey was her usual fabulous diva self backstage at the Film Independent Spirit Awards — tottering around on skyscraper heels so high she couldn't walk and having security prop her up all night.

    The star, upstaging other actresses in a tight black dress showing off her famous curves, was celebrating her cast mates from "Precious," which swept the board at Friday night's awards at the LA Live arena — seen as a more relaxed precursor to the Oscars.

    Celebrating without husband Nick Cannon backstage, Carey did nothing to stop rumors that she's pregnant or ready to adopt, telling us, "I have a lot of new acting projects coming up. I am talking to ['Precious' director Lee Daniels] about at least three movies. But there's also something else very special on the way. I can't say any more."

  27. 27

    good god. mariah needs to finally realize what her actual size is.

  28. 28

    Its famous because its the theme for one of their novelas! so EVERYBODY hears it and connects it to the couple in the novela…

  29. 29

    good for her. it was a great cover.

  30. 30

    This a miracle cause Cowriah is nothing outside the USA lol the lambs must be so pist that she's had flop after Flop in the USA when her lambs don't give credit to nothing outside the USA.

  31. 31

    HA. You're welcome

  32. 32

    Brazil loves hot sexy Mariah's songs… www.isexbar.com

  33. 33

    thats freaken awsome! go MC! I didnt hear any one complaining when whitneys "I will always love you" was number and it being connected to a movie or celines "my heart will go on" Titanic…tisk people give her some fucken credit. She did the song justice (outside the fact that it was to short)

  34. 34

    Mimi is the best. I don't understand how people make Ke$ha number 1 for like ten weeks and someone with an unmatched voice can not sell that many albums in her home country…oh I know why! Cuz people are idiots.

    BOWWW to GODRIAHHH. Lambs forever!!!

  35. 35

    She has the worst style period.

  36. 36

    jeeze, they must not have very good taste if they like THAT song.

  37. 37

    She's the best. I love her songs very much. It's strange that she hasn't updated her blog on 'rich cupids.c om' for a long time. Is she so busy?

    Re: Madonna_#1fan_4ever!
    mariah is actually big in Asia.. way bigger than madonna.. she outsold that tranny by millions… she is actually, the biggest selling intl artist in Japan…the biggest market after US…

    so ur "not popular outside US" claim is pure stupidity…

    nobody cares abt madonna hir inn Asia… thats why her sticky and sweet tour has only one date in Asia…

    and also, madonna lost her relevance in the US, where it matters most….
    more than a decade ago…

  39. 39

    O good lord! Now he does research and is nice about celebs! BAHAHAAHA At least some of the shit I said set in!

  41. 41

    Oh. Miss Every Note Is An Event! Just go take your morochas somewhere else!

  42. 42

    Thats because all those Trannys are trying to look like her lol…..

  43. 43

    Re: mimi4evr – LOL! Get outta here. Asia LOVES Madonna and in fact her next tour will hit Asia…For a so called has been, Madonna played at stadiums all over the US, Mariah can't even sell out a theater here. Madonna's sold out the Tokyo dome so many times and it will happen again so STFU. Madonna could sell out the Bird's Next in Beijing if she announced a concert there.

  44. 44

    Perez, you forget to mention the song is been at #1 for 21 (TWENTY ONE) straight weeks!! It's awesome.

    But I disagree on the U.S. airplay chart - this song got a peak of 20 MILLION impressions in the U.S., more than last Madonna 4 singles combined LOL

  45. 45

    Mariah Carey was apparently offended when some reporter asked her whether she was Hispanic (she does look the part and, amusingly, "Precious" asks her that very question in the movie, and she doesn't actually answer, LOL), so why do Brazilians love this tacky, fat cow so much (and for such a seriously lame song)?

  46. 46

    Re: mimi4evr – Thank you.. And to the Madonna fan idiot… Mariah SOLD OUT the Tokyo Dome a long ass time ago.

  47. 47

    perez your taste in music sucks! Mariah's new cd is GREAT!!! maybe you should go and listen again!

    Mariah Carey Wants a Piece of Woody Allen
    Before casting his next film, Woody Allen may want to check out Precious. (But not Glitter!)


    Mariah Carey tells me that the legendary filmmaker is her dream director.

    "I've never met him, but Bullets Over Broadway is one of my favorite movies ever," Carey told me at the Oscars. "I can quote every word. I think it's amazing."

    Sounds like Carey has learned a lesson or two from her glittery flop. "I'm going to try to be careful about what I do," she said. "You've got to work with people who bring you to another level, and you have to surround yourself with people you can fully give yourself to."

    According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, Madonna has sold more than 220 million albums worldwide. She is ranked by the Recording Industry Association of America as the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century, and the second top-selling female artist in the United States, with 64 million certified albums

    Hodonna and Weedney have been eating Mimis sh!t for decades now!

    LOOOLLLL! Mariah please stop making music. Give those old whores a chance to revive their, deader than ashes, careers. Take a break and let em release some cds like your away! LMFAO!

  57. 57

    I'll elucidate ! That song is the theme for a soap-opera that's very popular now, Viver a Vida. Brazilian soaps aren't like the american or mexican ones, they're not takky and they're like a country wide thing, everybody watches, so the song has made a huge comeback because the soap has a like vintage vibe, it's set nowadays but the songs are from back in da day !

  58. 58

    Can she ever wear something that isn't skin tight? She doesn't exactly have the greatest body.

    madonna has 19 n1 albums between us and europe , whoriah only 9 OUCHHHHHHHHH

  61. 61

    Re: madonna n1
    Your life must suck if all it does is revolve around Madonna. You need to get out more, and try to expand your knowledge of music, although that might scare you, since you might actually find out that there are more talented artists than Madonna, although everyone else with some sense has known that for years.
    Liking one artist and hating everyone else that "competes" with her is like dressing up everyday in the same brand of clothes and refusing to wear anything else–you become BORING.

  62. 62

    another thing madonna has 23 n1 s in japan , more than other international female artist ,,

  63. 63

    madonna the queen of the eurochart , the queen of the hot 100 , the queen of the latin american airplay , the queen of the brazilian airplay, and the international artist with more n1 s in that country , the international artist with more n1 s in japan and australia and canada , MADONNA THE MOST POPULAR FEMALE ARTSITS IN THE WORLD ALL TIME

  64. 64

  65. 65

    You forgot to mention that Beyonce held the title previously with Halo and Mariah beat her ass! Just goes to show that whoever said Mariah is over, you are dead wrong. Mariah will never be over! She is the DIVA OF ALL DIVAS and her music will always reign supreme above all these wannabe ladies!

    Re: madonna n1 – Blah Blah Blah .. Get a life, Euro trash !

    The giantess should try touring there. Maybe she could sell out a show.

  68. 68

    jeez……better get to the gym girl

  69. 69

    To SAVE HER CAREER?!?! Get the fuck outta here. It's MARIAH!!! She has a fucking FANTASTIC VOICE and will ALWAYS be around. I'd be willing to bet my LIFE on it! I COMPLETELY agree that her latest album is garbage, but then again, so was the one (I forgot the name of it) that resulted in her being dropped from her record label, and she came back with The Adventures of Mimi, her best album EVER! So she makes a couple bad choices with the music she releases, but it's not enough to ruin her career! Think about it though, the album that got her dropped was retro… It had an 80's vibe to it. Her current album is reflecting her first album as per the type of music chosen for it. There's a pattern here. No doubt, if she kept up with the current, up to date sounds, she'll be on top again. And she WILL! As much as I hate her personality and the way she smiles and tries to act phony, I'm definitely a fan of her music. Perez, don't forget that you're a NOBODY that only got famous for a website you created about celebrity gossip. NO ONE gives a FUCK about you or what your opinions are, you can trust and believe that. It's a shame that you're even known and that people (including myself) pay your salary. The gossip is the only reason we visit your site, don't get it twisted…

    What does madonna have to do with this post?

    i love mariah but she really should change her wardrobe..she can't wear spandex mini dresses.

  72. 72

    Re: rgzrgz – Absolutely nothing ! Madonna fans troll the internet and look for stories about talented female singer, songwriters, dancers and actresses and then proceed to tell everybody how Madonna is beter than that particular celbrity. It's because they know that Madonna is a thief and marketing genius but has no great talent to back herself up. She is like Howard Stern, a "shock jock". They spew numbers as if selling a lot makes her talented.. Female artists are a threat to Madonna and her fans, they know that people with REAL talent make her look even more talentless than she already looks.

  77. 77

    well, brazilian teens are def-ear just like Porkez.

  78. 78

    Mariah is no.1 in Southeast Asia! esp. in the Philippines! Mariah can sing and the current crop of singers out there now were all influenced and inspired by Mariah's music. From Beyonce, to Leona Lewis, they all have been influenced by Mariah. Mariah is also turning into a good actress esp. with Precious! compare that to Desperately Seeking Susan, LOL.

    Re: madonna n1
    madonna is irelevant in the US today… all her albums after "music" flopped… and with her, being irrelevant in the market that matters most., US, the country that set the trends..

    Re: madonna n1

    why must you keep comparing madonna to mariah carey. what does this have to do with madonna, what so ever!? madonna and mariah carey are two very different artists, with different styles of music, and they're both BRILLIANT at what they do, but shouldn't be compared! hey, i love madonna now, but jesus, your like obsessed with a woman you don't even know and i bet she would NEVER want to know you. calm down a bit will ya?
