As the finger pointing between Mariah Carey‘s camp and Dick Clark Productions continues well over a week after her failed New Year’s Eve performance, the ‘Triumphant’ singer has finally been greeted with good news from the otherwise tragic incident.
Thanks to a week of ongoing publicity surrounding the showing – which was highlighted by “live” performances of Carey classics ‘We Belong Together,’ ‘Emotions,’ and her holiday album’s rendition of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ – the pop icon has soared on streaming outlets. And, when we say “soared,” we mean skyrocketed!
Tuck in below for details:
The set and its ensuing media publicity have sparked streams of her hit “We Belong Together,” which soars 251 percent to 4.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 5, according to Nielsen Music.
Her “Auld Lang Syne (The New Year’s Anthem),” the third number of her set, rockets 927 percent to 1.2 million U.S. streams in the tracking week. Carey’s cover of the standard was originally released on her second holiday album, 2010’s Merry Christmas II You. “Emotions,” meanwhile, rises 111 percent in weekly streams to 335,000 plays.
