        “According to Nielsen SoundScan, Carey is the clear winner by a wide margin, actually topping the total album sales – again, since 1991 – of Madonna and Houston combined.” – Billboard

        You are on crack like your fave. All of that is a lie. Mariah sold more albums and has more #1s than any other solo artist PERIOD, not just more than Crackney.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 14, 2021

        Besides being the second best-selling artist of all time, the best-selling solo artist of all time, and the best-selling female artist of all time (in terms of No. 1s), Carey has plenty of other records under her belt.

        Her first song to top the Hot 100 was also her debut single, “Vision of Love,” in 1990 when she was 20 years old. Her next three singles would also top the charts — 1990’s “Love Takes Time,” and 1991’s “Someday” and “I Don’t Wanna Cry.” “Emotions” would also top the chart in 1991.

        Then came 1992’s “I’ll Be There,” 1993’s “Dreamlover” and “Hero,” 1994’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (which didn’t actually top the charts until 2019), 1995’s “Fantasy” and “One Sweet Day,” 1996’s “Always Be My Baby,” 1997’s “Honey,” 1998’s “My All,” 1999’s “Heartbreaker,” 2000’s “Thank God I Found You,” 2005’s “We Belong Together” and “Don’t Forget About Us,” and 2008’s “Touch My Body.”

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 14, 2021

        I stated nothing but facts, honey 💯🤳🏽💋 Crackney Höeston should have checked herself in and maybe she’d still be alive.

      • wwwd September 15, 2021

        whitney was killed and i dont have to copy and paste i just have to say Whitney Houston her name speaks for itself

    • Anne September 15, 2021

      I think it’s going to be a drama this time so I doubt they’ll keep the same theme song. If I’m not mistaken, it’s a dramatic take on the same scenario, a kid from the hood being placed into an upper class home. A whole different vibe, but same issues, just not from a comedic standpoint. I think it will be interesting if they do it right.

  4. K’man September 14, 2021

    Are going to talk about the time will’s ex wife found will being pounded by Benny Medina? Allegedly

  5. Munchie September 14, 2021

  6. Oop September 14, 2021
