Or did she turn 47? Wiki and such says she`s either 45 og 46! lol!

I was so sure her biggest hit was Hero! Not even top 5! :confused:
Do you know what`s her definite biggest hit is worldwide?

There seems to be conflicting sources over whether she was born in 1969 or 1970, but I think it's always "officially" been 1970. I wonder what the truth is? :p

I guess her biggest worldwide hit is probably 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' after all these years of re-entries? 'Without You' was massive pretty much everywhere, so I guess that's her biggest non-Christmas hit in the world (although not one of her #1s in the US, it got to #3).

I think that US Billboard "Mariah Top 5" might be based on chart points (i.e. how good the chart run was), rather than sales, but I'm not sure. Her biggest US #1s are definitely One Sweet Day & We Belong Together though!

Yeah I think 'Without You' is definitely her biggest non-xmas hit. And I'd say 'Hero' is another one even if it didn't sell that much. When you think of Mariah, you mostly think of 'AIWFCIY', 'Without You' and 'Hero' unless you actually know her catalogue a bit more and have other personal favorites.

A bigger hit doesn't always mean bigger sales. "Hit" is a word that describes a song's success, impact and relevance, not necessarily only sales. There are lot of big-seller songs out there that aren't regarded as real big memorable hits that will pass the test of time. Alexandra's 'Hallelujah' and Matt Cardle's 'When We Collide' were UK million sellers, yet I doubt anyone actually sees those as memorable hit songs, for example. Or the Spice Girls 'Stop' which is one of their worst selling singles, yet it's become one of their biggest and most recognizable hit singles. You get the idea.

I've always believed there's a difference between biggest hit single and best-selling single.

I also was always under the impression that 'Hero' is her biggest hit, but 'Always Be My Baby' seems to be her most popular tune on Spotify, having the most plays? (Not counting AIWFC).

Btw, would be great if she once did a whole tour (or at least one show) with JUST album tracks!
Wonder what the setlist would be. She`s has SO much to choose from!

She mentioned she would like to do so at some point during her London show last week.

While searching for the ticket I was a bit surprised that there are chairs at the ground floor by the stage, even at the area where people usually stand, dance and sing along, same thing was with Janet Jackson. I wonder why?

She sort of did Rainbow (Interlude). At least a part of it.
But nothing else outside the usual setlist :)
