Triumphant: Mariah Carey Enjoys Huge Streaming Spike After Shambolic ‘NYE’ Performance

Published: Tuesday 10th Jan 2017 by Rashad

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:

Via Billboard:

 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.

      Girl. Mariah’s voice is Annointed. They can Troll/Hate on her all they want, they have done that since Honey was released. But she has a gifted voice, she needs to focus, get her priorities straight, take a page out of Mary J’s playbook and get back together. FADED and Make it look good would have restored her

      ??? I hate you

  3. Um. January 10, 2017

    Lol. I guess people realized that if they want to hear Mariah’s hits, they’ll just have to settle for the studio recordings. Nevertheless, good for her.

    Mariah Carey stay winning.
    If she release that new single in a few weeks and kill the performance, she’ll get another number one hit far sure.
    People like to see others fail, but love to see them bounce back even more.
    Mariah needs to realize she doesn’t have to sing the way she use to in her 20’s.
    All she needs to do is deliver with songs that fits her voice currently. She’ll still be light years ahead of today’s artists!!

      Exactly, Whitney knew she was mo longer in her prime but used her voice accordingly to her new one. Her life performances of I Look 2 You, Didnt Know My Own Strength, And Million Dollar all sounded allot better live compared to studio session (of course she was always better live regardless ?, but yes Mariah needs to embrace the new voice snd God please condider a jazz album

  8. SMH January 10, 2017

    • The Wig Snatcher January 10, 2017

      “Some extra people going to spotify isnt gonna repair her image. So Im not impressed. Come out with NEW AND GOOD MATERIAL like she did in 08 and then we can talk.”

      That’s fine because no one was talking to you. It may not repair her image on TGJ, because the rest of the world have moved on, but it does put money in her pocket and shows that ppl are still very interested in the brand that is Mariah Carey.

    “We didn’t have a sound check for this song, so we’ll just say it went to No. 1, and that’s what it is!” *Sashays away* -Slayriah Carey

  12. Ooooooh January 11, 2017

    Haaaaaaay! *clicks fingers*

  13. Tori January 11, 2017

    That’s great for her. I know I streamed Emotions like 10 tops. Was never really a big Mariah fan but her E=M and MIAM are great albums and hold personal memories for me. Plus, I saw Tamar singing Emotions and hit the notes so I thought I’d give Mariah a listen.

    Stay mad… MC is iconic.

    Truth be told, the girl has an incredible catalog. Every talk show has been talking about this girl everyday since the 1st and I definitely got persuaded to go listen to Emancipation. If she would humble herself, stop throwing shade at every other chick, stop thinking the whole “I-don’t-know-her” thing is still cute, stop “lounging”, and stop acting like she’s better than everybody else in the world, she might not have so many negative things going on and if she would stop being so lazy and actually work on reviving and taking care of her voice, she might be half the vocalist she was 15 years ago.

    I’m old school. I don’t get the hype around streams. Spotify says it pays labels and publishers between $0.006 and $0.0084 per stream. A Guardian report suggests that the average payment a signed artist gets after their label takes its share is a mere $0.001128. I have nothing against streams I just wish someone could shed more light on why the pay to artists and writers are so low? Also, when I go on Spotify the new songs I stream are free (I do not have a subscription). Any old song I want to stream I go to youtube to listen or watch the video free. Is there something I am missing.

    Slayriah! You can’t keep a legend down!

  18. Meme January 11, 2017

    I know I def went and save 4 of her albums on Spotify and been playing them ever since the performance. I guess everyone was thinking the same way. Good for her. But I agree with another post. She really needs to get her act together and stop being lazy. We get it, you have the most gifted voice in the world but you will have to actually put in effort. It’s 2027, the whole diva act is played.

  19. Janelle January 11, 2017

    Lambs are flexing over a few streams. I guess they’ll take whateva they can get. Miwhoriah still ain’t see a top 10 hit or #1 album this decade. Somebody give her a participation award.

  20. SMH January 11, 2017

    Lmao. So she had a spike in STREAMS, not SALES. So what exactly are the sheep celebrating here?
