Throwback Thursday: Mariah Carey

By / 02.06.14

Since yesterday we celebrated Mariah Carey still looking good in a bikini, even at age 43, today we’ll take a look back at some of the reasons we became big fans of hers and why we still are today. As you may have noticed yesterday, Mariah has changed a bit over the years, but she’s still definitely got it going on.

Click on to see Mariah the way we remember her and how she looks today.

Hard to believe that it was 24 years ago that Mariah’s self-titled debut album went multiplatinum and produced four consecutive number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Followup albums, Emotions in 1991, Music Box in 1993, and Merry Christmas in 1994, established her as one of the most popular singers of all time. In 1995, Mariah’s song “One Sweet Day,” from the album Daydream, set a record by spending 16 weeks at number one.

Unfortunately after that rapid success, Mimi experienced a few struggles both in music as well with as a feature film, Glitter. However, by 2005 she had returned to the top of the charts with The Emancipation of Mimi, which produced the song “We Belong Together” and was named “Song of the Decade” by Billboard magazine.

In her over 20 year career Mariah has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, won five Grammy Awards, 17 World Music Awards, 11 American Music Awards, and 31 Billboard Music Awards. And she’s not done yet as on December 31 of last year she announced that she’s working on yet another album planned for release sometime in the spring of 2014.
