An icon. A legend. One of the greatest voices to grace Pop music.
While the above can all be said of Mariah Carey, there’s no denying that her time at the top has come with its difficulties.

Both shocking and disturbing, Rihanna’s take on the song still darkens many a happy memory related to the song- even eight years after it happened.
