Mariah Carey


Mariah Carey Biography

Mariah Carey is a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, record producer, actress, and entrepreneur known for her smash hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You," as well as her five-octave vocal range.

Referred to as the "Songbird Supreme" by the Guinness World Records, she is noted for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, signature use of the whistle register, and songwriting prowess. She rose to fame in 1990 after signing to Columbia Records and releasing her eponymous debut album, which topped the U.S. Billboard 200 for eleven consecutive weeks. Soon after, Carey became the only artist ever to have their first five singles reach #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, from "Vision of Love" to "Emotions."

Carey achieved worldwide success with follow-up R&B and pop albums Music Box (1993), Merry Christmas (1994), and Daydream (1995). These albums spawned some of Carey's most successful singles, including "Hero," "Without You," "All I Want for Christmas Is You," "Fantasy," "Always Be My Baby," as well as "One Sweet Day," which later became Billboard's Song Of The Decade for the 1990s. After separating from Mottola, Carey adopted a new image and incorporated more elements of hip hop into her music with the release of Butterfly (1997). Billboard named her the country's most successful artist of the 1990s, while the World Music Awards honored her as the world's best-selling recording artist of the 1990s, and the best-selling female artist of the millennium.

After eleven consecutive years charting a U.S. #1 single, Carey parted ways with Columbia in 2000 and signed a $100 million recording contract with Virgin Records. However, following her highly publicized physical and emotional breakdown, as well as the critical and commercial failure of her film Glitter (2001) and its accompanying soundtrack, her contract was bought out for $50 million by Virgin and she signed with Island Records the next year. After a relatively unsuccessful period, she returned to the top of music charts with The Emancipation of Mimi (2005), which became the best-selling album of 2005 in the U.S. Its second single, "We Belong Together," was the #1 song of 2005 in the U.S., and was later declared Billboard's Song of the Decade for the 2000s. In 2009, she was cast in the critically acclaimed film Precious, which won her Breakthrough Actress Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Throughout her career, Carey has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Carey holds the record for the most #1 singles by a solo artist, a female songwriter, and a female producer. In 2019, She has consistently been credited with inspiring a generation of singers and is hailed as being one of the pioneers of pop and contemporary R&B music.

In January of 2020, Carey became the first artist to ever have a #1 single in four different decades.
