This week: Celebrating Mariah Carey, New Country Music Playlists and ROXi on SkyQ
Three Decades of Diva: Thirty Years of Mariah Carey, only on ROXi.
Sweet destiny, indeed: 2020 marks 30 years since Vision of Love launched Mariah Carey’s stunning career, and her five-octave voice has awed and delighted us ever since. (Can you name a holiday season in recent memory where you didn’t blast “All I Want for Christmas Is You”? Didn’t think so.)
She has sold over 200 million records worldwide, putting her among the best-selling music artists of all time. Her trophy room is filled with plenty of awards and honors and she has collaborated with titans like Jay-Z and Missy Elliott, moving effortlessly between pop, R&B, hip-hop, and soul, writing and producing her own material along the way.
As far as we’re concerned, that “diva” title is well earned and should be respected. (Per the Diva Charter, you’re allowed one big movie bomb, so we’ll pretend that Glitter never happened and move on.) You rack up those kind of numbers and earn nearly as many accolades, you’re allowed to call your upcoming memoirs The Meaning of Mariah Carey by Mariah Carey.
We know it’s hard to pick favourites when there are THIS many hits to choose from, so we’ve done the tough bit for you: Mariah Carey Classics can be found in Top Playlists under Genres / Urban.
Also on ROXi this week…
