 Youre Mine: Mariah Carey Makes Adult Contemporary Debut  / Lana Del Rey Pulls Up To Platinum

This year, music lovers can look forward to new LPs from a number of Pop gems, with the likes of Rihanna, Ciara and Nicki Minaj sharpening their swords for chart battles in the months to follow.

However, before they ladies mentioned above impact the charts with a new sound, Lana Del Rey and Mariah Carey are given good cause to celebrate the impending launches of their new projects, after both welcomed new radio and sales achievements recently.

Want to be in the know?

Meet us below…

Perhaps the light at the end of her iTunes tunnel, Adult Contemporary radio formats kicked off their support for her new single ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’ this month, weeks before the May 6th unveiling of her new album.

Thanks to their support, the single made the greatest debut on the format this week and arrived at #26, and now-if received by well the format’s listeners- should see the song follow suit on all of the formats it’s being serviced to.

More interestingly- and a more lucrative tip- her success on AC stations may see her new album exceed current expectations and win the support of ‘older’ audiences, who usually opt to purchase LPs over singles.

Elsewhere,  the release of  Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Tropico went a long way to push sales of the New Yorker’s music, with sales of her ‘Born To Die‘ debut now well over the 719,000 mark in the UK.

As if that wasn’t enough to silence those in doubt of her ‘pulling power’, the starlet now has three US Platinum singles to her stage name, after both versions of ‘Summertime Sadness‘ joined ‘Young and Beautiful’ to greet the Recording Industry Association of America’s Platinum hand, for sales of 1 million units…each.

Your thoughts?

    That picture tho. Only Lana could serve up as much beauty in one photo. You can all beat on the old dead ‘plastic surgery’ drag but the fact still remains that she is one of the best looking females in the music industry at the moment.
    Death at her proving all those f*** that said Summertime Sadness was a flop without the remix after it has went platinum on its own.

      You as a Beyonce stan are the absolute last to talk about legacy. How many times has your fave been accused of stealing? That’s what I thought. As an artist, being accused of plagiarism( especially several times throughout your career) is literally the worst thing that could happen. You lose much recognition as an artist and your talent is forever questioned. Beyonce’s “legacy” has been shot down years ago which is no wonder why you are so bitter about Mariah. Mariah’s legacy is engraved in stone like all other legends. Her artistry, success, and her accomplishments will not be tainted nor forgotten.

        Ok, she’s been accused of stealing, but what pop star hasn’t though? Who even cares about that other than you hating ass b****** on these blogs? After all of that Beyonce is still here outselling your faves, she’s a touring GOD, and respected by just about everyone in the industry from critics to legendary artists alike. Her career also spans two decades. From being the lead vocalist of one of the best selling girl groups of all time to her impressive solo accomplishments. 17 grammys, performing for the president TWICE, ACCLAIMED perfromer! Her legacy is intact! She will definitely be remembered whether you bitter hateful b****** want to accept it or not! :) Find a new excuse to discredit Beyonce for because the “stealing” accusations haven’t stopped a damn thang! #TOtheLEFT

        ROFL! I knew you would respond as usual. Most pop stars not only don’t get accused as much as artists like Beyonce, they certainly aren’t sued as much and always have to settle out of court. The rest of your comment is worthless because as I said before, her credibility as an artist as been shot down years ago. She could get a diamond album, sell more than the spice girls, get more awards than Whitney, get more grammys than Aretha, etc. for all I care. It still doesn’t change the fact that she is a dreadful thieving artist who has lost so much respect and credibility with the general public. Her “legacy” shall remain destroyed and forgotten.

        And I knew you were going to respond with “Beyonce gets accused more” b******* excuse! If I’m not mistaken stealing is stealing, but because Beyonce is the bigger star she gets the most flack for it (from pressed forum f***).

        DEATH @ you saying her credibility as an artist has been shot down by the “GP” Do you mean the same WW GP that’s supporting her tour? The same GP that bought 3 Million copies of her new album? The critics that are praising her left and right?(85 metacritic) ;) The same Grammy committee that’s awarding her all of these prestigious grammys? Her credibility seems to be just fine to me!

        “Her “legacy” shall remain destroyed and forgotten.”
        LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

        You are so pressed, your comment lacks any type of logic. I can’t even take you serious! Take some of the bitterness out of your opinion and maybe you’ll make a little more sense ;)

        Aww… I see the little hivy stan is still upset that their fave is a joke. Anyway, I will continue to bring up Beyonce’s thievery as long as I please. You can keep bringing up sales, awards, and other b******* accomplishments all you want; it will not change the fact that she is a dreadful thieving artist who is not respected and has lost credibility. In fact, she reminds of Madonna. Madonna is one of the most if not the most successful female pop star in the industry yet she has always been accused of stealing and has even been sued more times than Beyonce lol. That just tells people that success means nothing if you don’t have the talent to back it up. Now, you may continue to bask in your delusion because Beyonce will be forgotten like all the rest :D

        Now you want to bring up Madonna, Which further proves my point that Beyonce is not the first nor last to be accused of “stealing” and she will STILL be respected just as much as Madonna is today! ;)

        BTW Beyonce has talent unlike Madonna. You know it. I know it, the world knows it, and if she hasn’t been forgotten not even a tiny bit after 17+years, I HIGHLY doubt she’ll be “forgotten” like the “rest” I CAN’T!

    Lana is the best female singer of the past 10 years, point black period, Born to Die/Paradise is a masterpiece, should be included on every list of best albums of all times, personally i think is second only to Ray of Light, better than anything any other female singer has done besides Madonna, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey & Bjork.

        Rihanna is a BETTER singer than Lana; Lana cannot sing in key passed B flat, and that is not including her whispering and yodelling so let’s not.

        Secondly; you cannot base the prowess of a pop star on their first album; especially in this generation where people have a short attention span.

        Lana could be like Gaga; a fad that comes and goes every now and then. You know like Carley Rae Jensen’s call me maybe.

        Let her pass the sophomore curse and then we’ll talk.

    I really don’t know why Ciara fans think they can come for other artists. Ciara hasn’t been relevant nor successful in 7 years. She flops constantly. Her last three albums combined prolly haven’t sold 500k total.

    Please tell me you are just trolling , i said Musicians, Adele is a vocalist who’s talents are limited to that (sing), same with Bey (an amazing performer, not a musician), Gaga is the only one with real music skills among those you mentioned and still is not on Lana’s level.

      @ Suicide

      Your definition of a musician is incorrect. A musician is a person who essentially is able to make or perform music. The voice is an instrument so vocalists/singers are technically musicians by definition. Now, “Gaga’s music skills are not on Lana’s level”? Not only is Gaga an accomplished pianist, she is a songwriter (she’s written the chords,lyrics, melodies, etc.), and her virtuoso far surpasses Lana’s. To say she is beneath Lana in relation to music skills is just delusional.

      Alicia Keys. But I tot understand where you coming from. In MY book

      Musicians: Stevie Wonder, AK, Elton John, even Gaga when she’s LIVE. MArs.

      Vocalist: Houston, Dion, I guess MC (even tho she rarely sing LIVE)

      Entertainers: Beyonce, TLC, Usher, MJ, Pink, Aaliyah.

      Performers: Madonna, Janet, (old) Britney Spears

      Singers: Monica, Brandy and more R&B singers.

      There’s more, but those are the ones I can think of right now.

    I may get dragged for this, but…You’re Mine (eternal) is a great song. Why it’s been such a chart flop really doesn’t make sense. It’s emotional, well produced and tight. I’m not craze about the remix but it’s cool. Personally, I think the video killed this song. It should have been more introspective…more vulnerable and showing Mariah being love sick over a lost love. A compelling video with great visuals could have turned the tide on an otherwise solid, R&B song.
    Good luck, MC!

      It´s very good. Bu it´s obvious mainstream is not into that type of music right now, that´s why it is underperforming. Not to mention every song needs radio support to be liked and a hit, especially if you are over 40. Look at Gaga´s GUY, eberybody loved the video, but the masses need to hear it again and again like they are forced to hear Rihanna´s or Katy´s songs again and again on the radio, if not, the song doesn´t sell.

    Thing with lana is, I do like some of her songs but people have a point about her not being able to write a song about suicide or death!

    The lana fans really are delusional though. You brag as if she went platinum in the same year she released BtD, meanwhile it’s been 3 years! Yet you come for everyone else who has potential to see platinum before an album birthday.

These current chicks struggle to go platinum with gimmicks, stage props, whacky clothes, and visual distractions.. MC’s “Beautiful” struck platinum and was number on iTunes in a run of countries. Therefore, your point is null & void.. Will anyone care about these horrid azz gimmicks if radio wasn’t supporting them? Ok then !!
