Mariah Carey’s ‘We Belong Together’ The Song Of The Summer?

Kelefa Sanneh of the New York Times is suggesting that this year’s song of the summer is ’s sublime ballad ‘We Belong Together’, not Rihanna’s ‘Pon de Replay’ or Gwen Stefani’s ‘Hollaback Girl’. Why? Just look at the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Sanneh writes, “After last week, when Attorney General Eliot Spitzer of New York got Sony BMG Music Entertainment to pay a fine of $10 million for improper promotional practices, listeners may be especially skeptical of songs that monopolize radio the way Ms. Carey’s song has. But as she can attest, money and fame are not enough to prevent a big star from releasing a big flop.” Read more.

    Great Article… but we knew this. Mariah is #1 again this week with WBT & #19 with Shake It off. In its 16th week, “The Emancipation Of Mimi” STILL has not fallen out of the TOP FIVE albums (she is #3 this week). We Belong Together” is the seventh single of the millennium to be No. 1 for 10 weeks or longer. The magnificent seven are, in chronological order: “Maria Maria,” Santana featuring the Product G&B (2000) 10 weeks “Independent Women Part I,” Destiny’s Child (2000) 11 weeks “Foolish,” Ashanti (2002) 10 weeks “Dilemma,” Nelly featuring Kelly Rowland (2002) 10 weeks “Lose Yourself,” Eminem (2002) 12 weeks “Yeah!” Usher featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris (2004) 12 weeks “We Belong Together,” Mariah Carey (2005) 10 weeks to date “We Belong Together” is Carey’s second No. 1 single to have a double-digit run. At the end of 1995, “One Sweet Day,” recorded with Boyz II Men, began a 16-week reign.

    Thalia?’, ‘I find it ironic that Thalia (married to Mariah’s ex- Sony CEO Tommy Mottola) can’t get a hit in the US market. It goes to prove that if you can’t sing, then NO amount of money will chart your single at #1. Thalia and J-Lo should run off together and become Lesbians!

    Interestingly enough…’, ‘I prefer Thalia’s singing to that of Jennifer Lopez, although I can’t stand either of them. Thalia is marginally talented, MARGINALLY, and J.Lo, well, the b*tch got greedy and ended up humiliating herself.

    Grow Up! Mariah is a name big enough that she doesn’t need her fans to degrade other’, ‘artists to make her seem better.

    The biggest compliment I can give Mariah and her latest disc with it’s No.1 We Belong Together, is that they made Mariah one of my most MOST favorite artists of all time. And not 4 months ago, I called Mariah a screaming screeching ***** with minimal amount of talent. I recommend emancipation of mimi to all u other haters. It really will change ur opinion.

  7. RadioFreeRoscoe says:

    Seriously dude, you’re the one who needs to grow up…’, ‘I was not putting anyone down to make Mariah look better. I was simply agreeing with the original poster. Mariah’s done more than enough to make herself look better than these two, who have dissed and/or stolen from her in the past.
