Mariah Carey Reaches Major Digital Milestone

Published: Sunday 7th Sep 2014 by Sam

It’s been a trying time for Mariah Carey of late – both personally and professionally.

However, this week saw a glimmer of glee gifted to the diva.

For, the 45-year-old has crossed an impressive digital milestone.

See what we mean below…

The star’s official website confirm that Carey has reached the one billion views mark on VEVO.


An incredible feat in itself, the achievement is rendered all the more noteworthy because not only did Mariah begin her career before the onset of the “digital era”, but not all of her videos are even available on the website. 


It goes without saying that this is yet more proof of the power in her name and creative output. Present times haven’t been kindest to Mimi commercially (see: sales of ‘Me. I Am…Mariah. The Elusive Chanteuse’). However, here’s hoping the music and projects ahead help double, triple, and quadruple that billion figure.

Just because we feel like it, check out some of our favourite Mariah videos below…


What are some of yours?

      You dummies have no respect. Mariah CELINE Whitney ARETHA are icons and music legends. Music royalty. Have some respect for her accomplishments. While ur somewhere getting ur nappy ends permed MARIAH is celebrating with some splash and her 500 million in the bank. POW ur cow

  2. The real xoxo September 7, 2014

    This just shows her legendary status, for an artist who never came up in the digital era this is an achievement.

    Honey has to be one of her most iconic videos to date.
    I loved it when I was a little kid still love it today

  4. Beysus September 7, 2014

    I fell in love with Its Like That, We Belong Together and Touch My Body!!! Love Mimi!!! Hate the (lack of) promotion she’s getting!!! I’ll Be Lovin You Long Time was such an underrated single!!!

    • Sheika September 7, 2014

      Yessss I love that vocal. But listen CRY, camufloge on that new CD those vocals are incredible

  5. Dossome September 7, 2014

    Well,current artists achieve that with even just 4 videos so it’s not that impressive but compared to her peers (Madonna,Whitney,Celine,Janet,Toni etc) this is pretty huge.Congrats Mariah

    • tits mcgee September 7, 2014

      Hey, luv!! I fully agree with your assessment.

      • Dossome September 7, 2014

        Hey Tits,how’ve you been?It’s been days

      • tits mcgee September 7, 2014

        I’m well. Keeping busy with work, night life,
        and some fashion week things, lately. The last
        2 weeks have been hectic, but fun! Thanks for

        How are you doing luv?!

  6. Lana Lover September 7, 2014

    Majority of her videos are trash.

    • OMG Logic!!! September 7, 2014

      Just like the majority of Lana’s live vocals right hun?

    • Mike September 7, 2014

      Please don’t mention MARIAHs name with these new crop of singers. Mariah is an ICON, Legend and the greatest female singer of all time;

  7. NT September 7, 2014

    Granted that the majority of her videos were popular before the vevo days this is pretty big for her.

  8. Mark111 September 7, 2014

    Oh, that’s impressive to achieve when most of your career was in the MTV era and not be dead to be appreciate. I will never question her legendary status nor her title as a queen. Unlike SOME, she put in the work and the years. I do question her having the VOCALIST title, but she’s an amazing artist non the less.

    • Why September 7, 2014

      Why would you question her a vocalist when her peer vocalists sounds worst than she do??

    • Stephy. September 7, 2014

      She’s a vocalist. 5 octave range makes ANYONE a vocalist. Bye, young man!

      • Mark111 September 7, 2014

        A studio vocalist, but a real vocalist can execute those notes LIVE. (See Whitney).

      • Stephy. September 7, 2014

        You sound dumb. Mariah Carey has shown time & time again that she can deliver a 5 octave range LIVE. Period. Whitney Houston is a powerhouse singer. Mariah is not a powerhouse in the studio or live. She is an alto-soprano with a whistle register. Whitney Houston is a mezzo-soprano with a powerful voice. Where as Mariah has a light voice. That does not make her a studio vocalist just because she does not have Whitney’s power. Saying Mariah Carey is not a vocalist is saying Janet Jackson is not a dancer. GOOD BYE.


      • Mike September 7, 2014

        Mariah Carey’s if it’s over is a POWERHOUSE vocal performance, the BET blueprint VISION OF LOVE Performance

      • Mark111 September 7, 2014

        Ok, you made some great points. FINALLY a lamb explained.

  9. NICKIMINAJ QUEEN September 7, 2014

    • Britney Stan September 7, 2014

    • Baby Blanco September 7, 2014

      Rihanna has more then all them b****** so just stfu.

  10. Britney Stan September 7, 2014

    Loved the heartbreaker video. Anyways this is cute but who cares?

  11. Mila j stan September 7, 2014

    Who cares about this fossil? Elusive sold 100k yet?

    • Why September 7, 2014

      Yes it has. Mila still Jhene’s older, lessor sister?? #Rhetorical

      • Mila j stan September 7, 2014

        Mariah still a fat divorced looney cow?

      • Why September 7, 2014

        She isn’t divorced. And if Mila is so pretty and hot, then why isn’t she the one dropping an album and with a man right now? You would have a better chance of Mila singing live on key before you could drag Mariah. The woman has sold more in the last two years than Mila’s entire career. #RhetoricalX2

    • Beysus September 7, 2014

      UM yes???

    • Baby Blanco September 7, 2014

      What is a Mila j though?

      • Mila j stan September 7, 2014

        Someone more relevant than Lil Shim.
        M.I.L.A in stores 9/30 while Shim can’t even drop a free mixtape.

    • Mike September 7, 2014

      Ur truly have nothing to do but this hate? Go play in traffic

    • Baby Blanco September 7, 2014

      You must be gay.

  12. Why September 7, 2014

    I likethe Breakdown and Boy with Camron cute self. Her makeup in those videos >>>>>>>>>

    It’s Like That, Fantasy, & Honey Is worth a mention as she reinvented what the diva image consists of with those eras, as well as they are the main eras that replicated today.

    • Mike September 7, 2014

      She is an icon

  13. Suicide Blonde September 7, 2014

    We Belong Together is my personal favorite video of her, simply because Wentworth Miller.

  14. ICONIC RI September 7, 2014

    Rihanna has over Five billion just saying.

    • Stephy. September 7, 2014

      Rihanna started her career in 2005 … Just saying…

  15. Stephy. September 7, 2014

    This is very good for an artist who’s PRIME year are WAYYYYYYYY before YouTube was even thought of.
    The only reason Madonna is not here is because she is not allowing her stuff on VEVO. Michael Jackson has 2 – 3 billion I believe.
    Anyways, this is dumb. You should’ve posted her SOUNDSCAN numbers. That’s a wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better accomplishment. Instead of some petty ass FREE views on YOUTUBE. This generation sucks.

  16. Theman September 7, 2014

    Yall try any and everything to discredit this one of a kind
    artist.. She runs circles around every chick posted on this site..
    It makes it great because she was out way before this digital
    crap. Lol it’s funny to see how computerized videos are such a big deal.. LooooL.. Mariah’s
    star power is insane.. F Yourube views, wassup with those platinum

  17. Gerald Sealy September 7, 2014

    This milestone is another achievement to a legendary career. Also for an artist who is not considered part of the digital era this is truly a big deal. But I have to ask why does this blog always have to point out something negative about Mariah even when the news is good? If you are going to point out flaws Sam do that towards all artists you cover on your blog don’t just single out the Rihanna’s and MariahCarey’s of the world.

  18. truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) September 7, 2014
