John Legend Scores First Ever #1 On Hot 100

Published: Wednesday 7th May 2014 by Sam

Congratulations are most certainly in order for John Legend.

For, a decade after releasing his debut album, the R&B star’s latest single ‘All Of Me’ has ascended to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 – his first song to do so.

Details on the singer’s feat after the jump…

Already Legend’s biggest US hit to date, the stirring ballad (which is lifted from album ‘Love In The Future’) had enjoyed several weeks within the top ten of the coveted tally.

Yet, it was to be this week which saw the track climb from #2 (where it had been for six weeks) to the top spot.

The achievement saw the Columbia Records star finally unseat label-mate Pharrell Williams – whose huge hit ‘Happy’ had reigned atop of the Hot 100 for a whopping ten weeks.

Billboard interestingly notes that John’s story represents the longest wait for an act’s first No. 1 (from a first chart appearance) since Snoop Dogg waited 10 years and 10 months before finally leading with ‘Drop it Like It’s Hot’ (featuring Williams) in October 2004.

Reacting to the news, Legend thanks his 5 million followers on Twitter:

 

So deserved! The moral of the story? Good music and great talent can still prevail; consistency and perseverance clearly being the key. Congrats to John.

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Already been done 18x…

    • ROSEGOLD May 7, 2014

      You can’t be serious…..

  3. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. May 7, 2014

    Good for him

    Not every artist is capable is getting a #1 single nowadays , some sell ass and still cant go #1 🙂 :/

  4. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    See what happens when you stay true to your craft *cough* Usher *cough*

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      “Blow” was going to be the lead single, it was rejected in the US for its lyrics .. “Pretty Hurts” has a great potential, hope she performs at BBMAs or something

      • H2O May 7, 2014

        (meant for your other comment)

    • coolness May 7, 2014

      @Mark111, I agree.

      • Beygency May 7, 2014

        That sucks! I always wanted Blow to be a single, it’s a great song.

  5. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    I think Bey missed her chance on a #1 this era. Maybe Blow can, but I don’t see how. I can see Pretty Hurts getting top ten, but hell she’s not promoting.

    • Dark Horse May 7, 2014

      Lmao girl bye if partition couldn’t even go top 20 what makes you think blow will slay?

  6. H2O May 7, 2014

    Grats John! I hope Frank Ocean starts his next era the same way, a commercial R&B ballad with proper promotion would be the best way to do it

  7. Brian310 May 7, 2014

    Congrats to John!!

  8. Dark Horse May 7, 2014

    Death he can get a #1 hit but Queen Bey can’t? kii

    • Skyfall May 7, 2014

      When will katy get a #1 without payola?

      • Dark Horse May 7, 2014

        wasn’t bey using payola for struggle in love

      • H2O May 7, 2014

        At least we don’t have a confirmation about it from a Canadian radio station, like Krappy’s case …
        `
        And she’s a half billionaire, she could’ve taken it to #1 for months if it was “payola”

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      Queen Bey is going 2x platinum while playing stadiums. Flopty?

  9. SBC19 May 7, 2014

    Francine Rivers getting a #1 single would be awful. #NOHOMO

    • Botoxana May 7, 2014

      WTF?

  10. Skyfall May 7, 2014

    About time, I’m so happy what did “problem” debut at?

    • Dark Horse May 7, 2014

      3

  11. pu$$y juice lover May 7, 2014

    This song is so overatted i dont get whats so good a out it, will probably be his last number one.

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      Judging by your user name, I don’t expect you to have a sense of class.

      • Lsnymodel May 7, 2014

        READ!

  12. ROSEGOLD May 7, 2014

    Congrats to John! Well deserved! His album is almost gold also. 🙂

  13. lesotho finnest May 7, 2014

    i am sooooo happy for him, good song,no stunts and no controvesy, just pure talent and staying true to his roots,i hope this helps his album sales..
    slay papa john, slay them..
    as for beyonce, drunk in love had a big potential to be number1 but she did no promo at all, look how that grammy performance boosted it to be number2 on bb.
    why isnt she promoting this album, because this coming tour will not bring much impact to those sales.

  14. ARTCRAP May 7, 2014

    WEll deserved its good to see real songs topping the charts

  15. B-Day May 7, 2014

    I see this song at #2 wtf?

    • ROSEGOLD May 7, 2014

      The charts are updated on Thursdays.

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      The HIVE and Bey are just alike… can’t see a #1

  16. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Everyone and everything snatching Bey’s wig low key. All I need is for Adele and Rih to drop their respective albums and end her once and for all. And death @ Problem not being #1. Mariah already had 5 #1 singles after 1 year. Poor Copyana

    • Botoxana May 7, 2014

      Mooriah is a fat flop

    • pu$$y juice lover May 7, 2014

      Hey sis wassup

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Heyyyy!

    • ROSEGOLD May 7, 2014

      Beyonce’s wig remains intact troll. Problem JUST debuted at #3. It may hit #1.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Still bad. She should have debuted at #1. Mariah has three #1 US debuts.

        And Bey’s wig is not intact. It is in serious danger of brutal and deserved dragging.

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      As Rihanna and Adele theirselves taught you, no one can “end” Beyonce … She will outlast every one in the industry.
      `
      And death @ “everyone snatching” her when she outsold everyone with her last album and with a $200M+ tour too …
      `
      F*ck a theatre MooRiP can’t fill, you need to take the whole Rose Bowl for this.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Who was talking to you h**??

        #RemainPressed

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        “She will outlast every one in the industry.”

        DELUSIONAL!!!

      • H2O May 7, 2014

        The best you got? Not too bad for a MooRiP stan …
        `
        @ Stefanie
        Sorry but that’s what will happen 😀

    • Skyfall May 7, 2014

      FUNFACT: Mariah is also the first female to debut at #1

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Another Very fun Fact: Michael Jackson was first, Mariah was second with Fantasy and Whitney was third with Exhale. All of those songs debuted at #1 in 1995. So awesome. Kings & queens of music.

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Lie! It was Whitney. Nice try tho.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Mariah was the first to debut @ #1 on the hot 100 mark. Do your damn research. She was even awarded for it.#sit

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Ok you better say Hot 100. WH did it with an album. Single < Album

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      Mariah Carey had 4 number 1 hit debut… not 3

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        3

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Oh wait! I thought you was talking about from her debut… Not debut at number 1…

  17. Applause May 7, 2014

    Dark Horse #1 2014
    Royals #1 2013
    Wrecking Ball #1 2013
    Diamonds #1 2012

    Yet the call her King Bey.

    • Rosie May 7, 2014

      Is B.Y.E. still outside of the top 400 on iTunes?

      • Applause May 7, 2014

        is flop coast still off the charts?

      • Rosie May 7, 2014

        Is F.A.G. still 200+ spots below it on iTunes even after Interscope removed it?

      • Rima May 7, 2014

        lol Rosie with west coast flopping i bet ultraweak wont even go gold.

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Good question, where is B.Y.E and ArtPoop?

      • Rosie May 7, 2014

        And Chartflop still isn’t at 2 million worldwide. Kii @ it getting outsold by GangBangerz.
        Go buy tickets for the artGRAVE Ball, all shows except MSG and like two other venues still have many tickets available.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      DEATH!! Bey stays losing as usual.

      • Applause May 7, 2014

        Mariah has the most number 1s then any females so it doesn’t matter how long ago her number 1 was but for Beyonce its a damn mess.

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      And how many of these last albums went double platinum? I’m waiting

  18. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Rihanna, hurry up & snatch that number 1’s wig from The Beatles. So, we can all stop taking number 1 hits serious!

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      No B***** needs to hurry up and snatch Legendary Celine’s tour gross so we can stop taking tour numbers seriously.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Naw, touring makes PROFITS… REAL PROFITS. Not stupid ass number 1 hits…

      • H2O May 7, 2014

        She will with next tour … and at a younger age, and with much less dates too 😀
        `
        At least they can tour, unlike the f*cking joke you stan for :lol

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Mariah Carey is far from a joke H2O… you are so pressed & dumb-founded on Slayriah’s Beyonce bashing…

      • Rima May 7, 2014

        H20 atleast Mariah can write her own music unlike Rihanna and Beyonce.

      • H2O May 7, 2014

        Who cares when Bey plays stadiums, MooRiP struggles to sell out small arenas even in major US capitals and with low prices

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Kim KarTRASHian stan Bye Ho!

  19. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAY SLAYriah…

  20. coolness May 7, 2014

    Congrats John!!! The song’s a little overplayed for me but he DESERVES it and anyone who thinks otherwise is a hater. This man has been at it since ’04 and is finally getting some well-deserved shine. People, when was the last time a ballad by a Black artist went to number 1 (I want to believe it was Rih’s Take a Bow). Over the years, we’ve seen EDM, Hip-Hop and other uptempo tracks by Black artists hit the top spot so this is a definite achievement. Those bringing up other artists should stop. This is about John and his career milestone.

  21. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Beyonce don’t need no whack ass number 1 hits. SHE IS NOT A SINGLES ARTIST. She sells albums & brings in big touring numbers… Thats good enough!

    • Kim Kardashian Stan May 7, 2014

      You need to shut your flip flopping wack ass up no one respects your comments.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      If she is a try queen her Sasquatch-built ass should be slaying on all fronts.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        True queen*

      • Rima May 7, 2014

        Stephy is so fake too me.

  22. Rima May 7, 2014

    Stephy is forever kissing the hives ass when they always drag Mariah but then again you always dragging her aswell.

    Congratulations John.

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      WHO ARE YOU THO???

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    I almost feel bad for Ariana. She is such a damn flop. Yours Truly still awaiting uranium certification. Poor little girl

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      Damn, stop messing with that precious baby! She is doing just fine.

  24. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Stephy is so fake to me, Stephy is a flip flopper, Stephy Get On My Nerves, Stephy this… Stephy That!!! blah blah blah blah blah!!!
    Don’t get mad cause I calls it like I sees it!!!

  25. AJ May 7, 2014

    That song is so beautiful and John seems like a beautiful soul. Unfortunately, he is married to Chrissy Tiegen. I’ll give it about 5 minutes before his wife is on Twitter naked, talking smack to somebody, or agreeing that a 9-year old girl is a c***.

    • Rosie May 7, 2014

      YASS drag iT. I hate his wife sfm.

  26. SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

    Flopriah stans embarrassing theirselves too much today. first saying flopriah new tour will outgross king B Mrs carter tour and now trying to drag her sales when flopriah album wont even sell 1/10 what B sold.smh

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      250,000,000+ Records already sold BYE !

      • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

        Bye.

  27. rihanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS May 7, 2014

    BLACK women are not selling records anymore. I look on the UK charts and USA charts there is not a single black woman in top 3

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      Lol.

  28. StarXavi May 7, 2014

    Well congratulations are definitely in order for Mr. Legend. He is definitely a hard worker and deserves the top spot. “All of Me” has a special place in my heart, because my mom walked down the aisle to that song last fall.

    On another note. Why does stans on here always have to bring up some other artist when the post is to acknowledge the achievements of someone else altogether? Stanning has come to an all time low on these blog comments. The total disrespect and disgusting/vulgar language would probably disappoint most of your faves. But whatever. Congratulations John!

  29. rihanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS May 7, 2014

    Justin Timberlake 20 20 albums have sold 6 mill WW. This is amazing. Plus his solo tour is smash. The pressure is really on Usher who’s new single seems to be flopping

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      F****** LIES! 20/20 is at 3.6 million WW. It’s flopping around the world. 2.4 in the States.

      • Rosie May 7, 2014

        6 million is both versions combined.

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        More lies. Part two is at 814,000. AND cut that s*** out, we’re not adding both albums, those are two different albums. #StopIt #NiceTry

      • H2O May 7, 2014

        They did sell well over 6 million worldwide combined, check MT and stop embarrassing yourself.

  30. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    Roaches before Drunk In Love “#1 doesn’t mean nothing. It’s about albums and tours.

    Roaches when Drunk In Love was at #2 “Ooooh, what y’all gonna say now. It’ll be #1 next week. WOOT! First #1 in 5 years.”

    Roaches after DIL fell off the charts “Singles don’t mean nothing.”

    Just like during 4 era the R&B charts meant something, but before that chart DIDN’T MEAN A THING TO YOU.

    • H2O May 7, 2014

      I don’t know about others but to me it’s always been the same – It’s cute that she had a top5 hit single but yeh, it’s all about tour numbers and album sales.

  31. JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 7, 2014

    Really??? Wow I thought it was never going to happen at this point. So glad. If somebody had told me he was going to get a #1 on the Hot 100 a few months ago, I would have call them crazy. Thankfully, despite being in 2014, it seems there´s still hope for true talent to top the charts 🙂

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      Based on the track list, which song are you most excited to hear from the Elusive Chanteuse?

      • JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 8, 2014

        I don´t know. All of them. Probably the last two.

  32. SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

    20/20 experience sold 4m in 2013 alone. more than all but 2 of singes artist Apeanna’s albums..get your s*** together mark111

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      Lies

      And you’re making fun of Rihanna when ShaFlopra was on her nuts just to get a hit for that flop ass album. How’s her other “singles” doing?

      • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

        what does Legendkira have to do with this? 60 million albums b****.Apeanna will NEVER

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      60 million and been out since 1990? Rihanna is on year 9 and is at 35 million. This is your “legend”? HA!

      • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

        Apeanna is at 30mil not 35mill.stop lying

  33. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Mark111 Replied:
    May 7th, 2014 at 4:21 pm.
    Ok you better say Hot 100. WH did it with an album. Single < Album

    This is quite refreshing coming from a Rihanna fan.

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      Doesn’t matter,my fave does it all. Rih sell singles, albums, tour tickets and anything else. Someone can only do a slave tour and sell an album with the hype of the world, yet can’t pass 4 million.

      Oh and Mariah can’t sell anything today. So go cling to 1990something sales.

      • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

        too bad her ‘slave tour’ still outgrossed any 2 Apeanna tours combined and her album already outsold both Unflopogetic and Ape that Ape ww

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        I stopped at “Rih sells albums”. The damn lies. And you came for me first though so don’t get salty when I defend the Legendary MC.

        Fun Fact: Mariah is Rihanna’s fave.

  34. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    When the Rihanna fan said “Singles < albums" I damn near passed out. 90% of Rihanna's slayage is her single sales and chart positions. Both Whitney and Mariah slayed in domestic and worldwide album figures. #Sit

  35. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    And Mariah has debuted @ #1 on both the billboard hot 100 and BB200. Bye!

    • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

      too bad no one gives a s*** anymore b****. go tell Mooriah Floprey to sit her ass down and let Nick milk her saggy floppy titties

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Why are Beyonce fans hiding under Shakira usernames?

      • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

        i stan for both king shakira and king B.And both of them shitttttttt on cowriah

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Mariah sold more records than both.

      • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

        yet shes irrelevant

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        More legendary than both.

  36. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Rihanna after 9 years: 13 #1 singles, 1 #1 albums
    Mariah after 9 years: 13 #1 singles, 4 #1 albums

  37. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Rihanna after 7 seven albums. 10 million

    Mariah’s last 7 albums. 12 million

    • SHAKIRA FANS HONG KONG May 7, 2014

      such a f****** flipflopper

  38. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    But Rihanna herself can barely sing without Chainsaw Massacre effects. Her dance moves are as stiff as the industries’ dickk when they F**** her. Her album sales stay subpar.

  39. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    @Stephy, you crossed the line. You are WRONG for posting that video. No one deserves to be brutally beat like that. Especially not a woman. If you’re gonna drag her sales then do so but don’t come with that video.

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      I don’t give a f****! Mark, talks about Mimi’s wieght, looks, children & career. So, imma come at his & everybody on this sites ass with under the belt drags. They don’t just attack mimi’s career they also talk about her life & children & drinking problems…

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Well Mark is obviously a pathetic SCUM! But don’t stoop to its level. I know it talked a lot of shirt about Mariah but I know which lines not to cross. That had to be the most painful part of Rih’s life and I would never use that to come back @ him. Just let it seethe like it usually does, we all know that Mariah is a vocal legend. Even its own fave Stans for Mariah. Just let the bitchh seethe while Mariah wears her crown.

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Never mentioned her children, not once. You’re not hurting me, you’re just making youself look bad, even your fellow sheep doesn’t support your low blows.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzHnNPLWsDQ

  40. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Terrible vocals. Rihanna’s vocals are nothing special. Cannot produce notes outside of a B5… Cannot hold on to notes with clear connection between her mid & upper range. NEVER can sound exactly like the record. Always, ducking & hiding from high notes only herd in the studio (AUTO-TUNE). Mark you call that singing… Nah more like TALK-Singing…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pF-dimyzIeU

      I don’t know why that diseased creature thinks she an talk about Mariah’s vocals while being a Rihanna fan. Smh

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Your a loser…

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        You’re* sweetie.

  41. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Man, imma not go below the belt anymore. Its wrong & I know it. It’s hard see-ing people bash Mariah like that. They don’t just talk about her career but they throw PERSONAL shots. But get mad when I throw personal shots. Bye! Imma keep it classy from now on. Sorry, for those terrible videos about Rihannas domestic violence. Its wrong!

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      DEATHH! When you said “domestic violence” I thought u were talking about her vocals then I realized it as the Chris thing. Lol. Her vocals are very violent though. Could cause serious damage to your ear drums.

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      You’re a bipolar mess. I always came for MC so called “voice”, mainly her title as a vocalist. Artist? Sure, Sold a lot? yep, but vacalist? Never, maybe in the studio, but never LIVE.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        You post all her videos of her singing with a DAMAGED VOICE! Why do you ignore her voice WHEN SHE WAS ABLE TO DELIVER LIVE! That seems delusional & Bi-polar saying someone NEVER delivered live when they have multiple performances singing LIVE…

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        She already been exposed of editing and re-recording for this tour VHS.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Nope, this show was not edited! This was Tokyo show. Not live at MSG… This was never released on a official DVD! Just bootleg…

  43. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Mark, why do you post videos of Mariah Carey singing with a DAMAGED voice… Then, turn around and say she could never sing LIVE… But act like this never happened…

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Mariah > Copyana and Beyonce’s lesser.

        #StayMad

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      Why would she need to shake her ass when she is hailed as one of the greatest vocalists in history. Rihanna is just as bad as a dancer is sit the F**** down you old nasty bitchh.

      Fun Fact: this performance is from the butterfly World Tour in Japan’s Tokyo Dome which has the record for fastest time a show has sold out in the Stadium’s history.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      And Rihanna couldn’t even dream of hitting any of those notes. The h** would sound like a dying cat. Model with a mic

  44. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    Those LAMES better post those 1990 VHS recorded shows. Why do y’all brag over 24 years, yet can only post good videos in year 1990-93. Stay in the past.

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      Mariah Carey singing on 106 & Park Undubbed & LIVE ! Hitting notes & grunts & Whistles notes Rihanna or Aaliyah could NEVER do live or in the studio…

        Do not drag baby girl into this mess.

  45. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Also, that edited DVD you speak of was just dubbed not lip-synced. Stop listening to Lachele on YouTube! This is the undubbed performance of her sounding exactly like the DVD!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sEvpP9oJ3k

  46. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Rihanna’s only decent performances are the ones of her singing those weak ass ballads that even Miley and Ke$ha could SLAY in their sleep. The rest of her perfumes are garbage. You are in no position to come for Mariah. Being pressed and posting all these videos DOES NOT change the fact that Mariah is superior to Rihanna, that Mariah is her fave, and that Mariah remains one of the best vocalists EVER!

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      Performances*

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Whitney Houston was BETTER than her. Not you calling Mariah a studio vocalist when you stan for Rihanna & Aaliyah whack ass vocals…

      • Brian310 May 7, 2014

        You got 1 more time to come at baby girl.

  47. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Mariah Carey singing her b*** off Undubbed & LIVE at the 2006 Grammy Awards & received a standing ovation.. Bye Marky Mark. Rihanna could NEVER hit any of those notes in the studio or live…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAV5X-lPRj0

  48. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Mariah Carey signing a VERY HARD song LIVE 100% with run-on adlibs, grunts, mid-belts & upper belts… Something if Aaliyah or Rihanna would’ve tried LIVE or in the studio would’ve killed their poor lil voices…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGAVqJKZxmw

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      Okay you tried it… This one wasn’t live.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        It is LIVE… She is singing with a backing track.. So she can breath

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      The birth of the term struggle. And that pre recorded last note!

    • Brian310 May 7, 2014

      That wasn’t live sweets so in the words of aaliyah try again.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        That was live 1It was sung over a backing track! Ugh Bye..

  49. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Provide receipts of Mariah being exposed for editing? We’ll wait. You just talk all kinds of Shitt out your dusty ass and always fails to provide proof. The true definition of a Mariah hater. For her Madison Square Garden concert, and Thanksgiving special, she performed the songs Multiple times to get the perfect version for the DVD (which is platinum btw). There is a video of her singing Vision of Love back to back three times completely live so stop before you embarrass yourself more than you already have. Poor soul

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Like I stated time and time again, smoke N mirrors.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Those are not lipped. That’s a hating person bashing Mariah Carey. Those performances are DUBBED NOT LIPPED. The one on the right is LIVE..

  50. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    If Mariah is a studio vocalist then what is Hoeanna? Clinging to Whitney doesn’t change the fact that you Stan for a BXTCH who would get shut down vocally be Miley and Selena Gomez. You need to sit somewhere.

    • Brian310 May 7, 2014

      Anyone with common sense knows Mariah was 1 of the best vocalist to ever do it…why do the lambs keep allowing the haters to get to them.

  51. Blue Ivy Carter Rodriguez May 7, 2014

    Congrats John but where’s Hippo? I see she’s still avoiding the top 5! Lmfao she stays missing that number 1 spot

  52. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Mariah has hit all of her studio notes LIVE and flawlessly. Brandy, Beyonce, Jordin Sparks, Whoreanna, Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, etc didn’t praise her for no reason Hun.

    They know who the damn vocalist is Hun.

    Their opinion >>>> your pressed ass

  53. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    This is completely live just like the other performance of We Belong Together (that yall said was lipped but was not). The difference is own is sung with a backing track (something Rihanna always do) & this one is sung completely with just back ground singers… Both are LIVE..
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR6jfp7uOP4

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      While, she was singing with a DAMAGED VOICE!

  54. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    Damn! I just realized that Mark111 is obsessed with Miss Carey. These videos show it.

    Mariah slays both Rihanna and FlopLiyah vocally. End of discussion.

    • Brian310 May 7, 2014

      An artist that has multi-platinum albums can’t be considered a flop just fyi.

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      This is a video made by BITCHriah… on Youtube A MAdonna fan who HATES Mariah Carey with a passion. Also, this is true Mariah started dubbing & lipping in 1997… Because her voice developed Nodules. Something that has to happen.

  55. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    You LAMES wanna know the diff from Rihanna, Aaliyah and Mariah? The first two never claimed to be vocalist, one’s a pop star and the other was an entertainer. But Miss Piggy think she can just stand in one spot and lip a whole show and think her name is gonna be anywhere around Whitney’s is a joke! I’m not fooled, I respect each artist for what they are, Rihanna isn’t a vocalist and neither is Mariah. Aaliyah didn’t have a loud strong voice, but she did have a rich tone and a range. I also LOVE the fact that I can take two LAMES and still hold me own. Face it, if Mariah’s a vocalist, then BEyonce is a songwriter.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        NEGRO PLEASE! You keep posting videos of Mariah Carey singing with a BUSTED voice. NOT giving her praise when she WAS a vocalist. To say, she NEVER was a vocalist is like saying Aaliyah NEVER was a performer! GoooooodBye! Mariah Carey WAS a vocalist not anymore but WAS NOT NEVER! Like you claim,,,
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVl7qDssddw

  56. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Yep, I sure did & I did it out of anger! Im appologies & kept it moving… But you are still bashing Mariah like she aint shtt but some p******** pop star BYE

    • lesotho finnest May 8, 2014

      damn! I love that song, one of mimi’s songs that are close to my heart. thanks staphy for posting that video

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      J-Ho & that Tommy stole Mimi’s concept for her song. Tommy was also trying to sabbotage Mimi’s career. See, this is what I mean about hitting below the belt. Mariah could’ve DIED along with your girl that year.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      And who sold more records to date? Who has a bigger net worth to date? Okay by! Mariah s richer than JLo, Rih, and Aaliyah combined. http://www.pressedbitch.org

      • Mark111 May 7, 2014

        Thanks to sugar daddy Tommy, who had a wife while MC was sleeping with him. And you call Beyonce a W****?

    WHEN THE F**** WILL AALIYAH AND RIHANNA SLAY VOCALLY LIKE THIS? Listen to them say the palace now has a queen. The entire crowd and basketball players got their lives from that high note. #StayMad

      Yessss!!!1 Post those VHS 1990 vids. Now step into this decade.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        But you were the one who said she could never sing ever in her career. Now you’re telling me to step into this decade. #Clocked.

        You tried to start a battle that you know you’d lose h**.

  58. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    The queen doing those high notes with such ease. Zero struggle detected. Aaliyah? Rihanna?

    • Brian310 May 7, 2014

      Aaliyah can’t do all of Mariahs notes but notes she knew something called restraint which means if she were alive she would still have a voice and most likely would have gotten better.

  59. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    ARE YOU NOT READING MY POST!!! I said Mariah WAS a vocalist! Mariah cannot sing anymore live I agree 100%. But to say she never was a vocalist is like saying Aaliyah never had s** & died a virgin…

    • Brian310 May 7, 2014

      Unless you was with her you can’t for sure say she did especially since she didn’t have kids.

      Death @ you going to next shitt. Bitcch you got dragged with these vids. Leave the damn post before we rip all the hair off your nasty body.

  60. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    MADE? Nope, she was promoted like LA Ried did for Rihanna. Just like Beyonce& Mathew & Whitney/Clive Davis…

    Tommy Mottolla gave Mariah credit for written her own material & producing. He did not have to do that for her. Which was the most important part. Without anything GOOD to sell, Mottallo would not have made all that money from Mimi in the 90s. Bye

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsdT_0Gg7GA

  61. Mark111 May 7, 2014

    But the 1990 videos they’re post isn’t all that great. They say she’s the best and I have YET to hear what give her the right to stand next to real vocalist like Whitney and Dion.

    • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

      HUH!?!?!? Celine Dion & Whitney Houston WAS ALWAYS BETTER THAN MARIAH CAREY LIVE. Is that what you was wating for??? Mariah Carey was a softer version of Whitney Houston she was NEVER a powerfhouse vocalist or a dramatic vocalist like Dion & Houston. Mariah was a lil bi racial girl off the streets of NYC with a great voice & a demo tape. Houston & Dion were training since they were KIDS! .. I agree Dion & Houston >>> Mariah! YES

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        Uggh, I’m done with you. Officially.

      • Brian310 May 7, 2014

        Celine is not better than Mariah at all don’t say such foolishness.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      Oh please… Your opinion is irrelvant. Whitney herself has praised Mariah. Stevie Wonder, Patti LAbelle, and Anita Baker have all praised her. Sit down. Death @ you clining to Celine when she lips and dubbed just like Mariah. Celine never sounded like she did on her records. No one does! She struggled on a lot of her belted notes. At the end of the dsy, Whitney/Celine/MAriah >>>>>>> Rihanna and Aaliyah

      • Brian310 May 7, 2014

        You saying that is pointless that like me saying Janet, Aaliyah, Ciara, BeY, Tina》》》》》》》》》》Mariah when it comes to performing.

  62. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Come on son! You can’t be this cray cray!! Or are you just trolling us Mr. Marky Mark. Give Mariah her damn props & keep it the f**** moving Rihanna sure ass hell did…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GD78HOKciI

  63. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Also, the LAMBS are delusional as f****. Mariah Carey was NEVER the best singer. By far… Aretha, Patti, Chaka & Barbara was the REAL DEAL! But Mariah Carey was a VOCALIST! She did things that many voices could not ever do. The only thing she did not have that Dion & Houston possess was POWER LUNGS…

    • Mark111 May 7, 2014

      Something I agree with. Like I said, great artist, hell of a singer. I just never understood why they call her THE BEST SINGER. That was always my question, that’s how me and Slayriah got into it months ago.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

        You make no sense at all. In fact, you just sound pressed and flip flop even more than Stephy. You went from saying she could never sing live, to basic, to hell of a singer. I’m done with you. I’ve never witnessed this level of pressed bxtch status before. smh

  64. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

    @Mark111

    They said it. Their opinions >>>>> your pressed/stressed soul

  65. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Slayriah! You know its true baby girl/boy. Celine Dion & Whitney Houston were way better LIVE singers than Miss Carey. But that does not make her any less of a vocalist of her prime years… But I am not delusional. Houston & Dion in their primes could out sing Mariah… Especially, Houston… Mariah, best past of her voice was not LUNG POWER it was tone quality & mid range belting …

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 7, 2014

      Bye… like I said before. I’m done with you. Please don’t reply to any of my comments. Like you clearly have no clue what you’re saying, Celine is a great vocalist but she has been lip syncing more often and far longer than Mariah. She struggled on may of her belted notes in her prime and sounded very screechy. And I’ve read stuff on multiple occasions about Whitney using special effects (echoing) to make her belts sound more resonant. They are all extremely gifted vocalists, What Mariah lacks in power is made up for with her range and unusual vocal runs and transitions from one range to the next. vocal power doesn’t make one a better vocalist.

      I tried to be cool with you but I just can’t. you flip flop too much. saying this today and that tomorrow. It is annoying as hell. With that said, this is my last comment to you. Good night.

      • Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

        Oh Please! Slayriah, your just as delusional as the rest of them Lambs… Bye Then Boo…

  66. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    Mark to further help you understand Mariah Carey’s voice put it like this…

    She was a softer version of Whitney Houston…

    But a stronger version of Minnie Reperton…

    If that makes any since.

  67. Stephy: Tha Elusive Chanteuse May 7, 2014

    I’m done! Peace out…

    Congrats john. So glad to hear this. You deserve it.

  70. number1k9 May 8, 2014

    I am so happy that this finally happened for John Legend. It could not have happened to a more deserving artist to be honest.

    I was waiting for the day that “All Of Me,” knocked “Happy,” finally off the Hot 100 pinnacle!

    Congrats John Legend, it was a long time coming! I wonder if Ariana will take over with “Problem” next week. I hope not but it seems inevitable now, ugh.

    😀

  71. Casual May 8, 2014

    Congrats, JL! I didn’t think Happy would weaken in time for All of Me to reach #1 before being overtaken by one of the contenders bounding up the chart.

  72. ChrisTUNA AguiHAHA May 9, 2014

    Finally, Congrats John! All of me is amazing. you deserve all of prosperity
