Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends. Radio caters to in-the-moment stars. … Nobody that put out records 25 years ago is going to have a No. 1. Not Paul, Stevie, Bruce, Mick or Keith. Not Prince, not anyone. So if she can get on the radio, we’ve done damn good. Would we like to have a No. 1? F– yeah, I’m greedy. But it’s not realistic.
I see where he’s coming from, but dang. I’d hate to have the guy who’s holding my career in his hands straight up say “sorry, you’re probably not going to be that successful.”
Mariah Carey’s problem isn’t solely that she’s a veteran of the industry though – her music just isn’t any good.
