AGAINST ALL ODDS IN SINGAPORE - sent in by Zaki

Hey! Well, I just want to highlight the situation of Against All Odds (feat. Westlife) in Singapore. In the official Singapore Charts in the perfect 10 98.7 FM, it moved up to no.19, which is unusual for a Mariah Carey songas most of her songs literally fly up the charts ('Can't take That Away' debuted at no.18 and jumped to no.10). Unfortunately, in the Power 98 top 40 chart (Another popular Chart), it has fallen out of the charts! I was so shocked as they went down the charts that MC's names was not mentioned.

(Ironically enough, Westlife's 'My Love' was the highest debut at no.24, a chart record the same week 'Against All Odds' fell out. Maybe not many people in Singapore appreciate MC's songs anymore??... sob sob)

Here is what you can do to increase airplay of the single in both power98 and perfect 10. For power98, go to the official website (http://www.power98.com.sg) go to the requests section and try to request for each timeslot. For e-mail, use a common e-mail (for example hotmail) so as not to arouse suspicion and put in a company name such as McDonalds, Burger King or something like that.

For perfect 10 98.7 FM, go to http://www.perfect10.com.sg click on 'Say It With Music' and request for a song. Try to sound like a dizzy teenager(my 24 year old sister's requests never get played because she writes them like a 24 year old) and request it to your parents, siblings, etc. I'm hoping 'against All Odds' will do much better than 'Can't Take That Away' (which peaked at no. 2 in the official charts and no. 4 in the power98 charts)Then, Mariah will get another no. 1 song in singapore. Let's all help her do that. I'll post you on more updates of the charts.

WESTLIFE'S SPICEY SLICE OF AMERICAN PIE - sent in by NYC

Following Westlife's opinion that the Spice Girls have failed to achieve success in the States the Irish boy band have revealed their plans to crack the America market with Against All Odds

The duet with Mariah Carey, which gained a sixth No 1 for Westlife in the UK's worldpop-sponsored official Top 40 charts, could well be a winner across the Atlantic but the guys were divided as to when the single will be release.

'It's our choice,' stated Kian Egan but bandmate Shane Filan explained that their second stab to win over the US market will not take place at least until the summer when the guys have spent some time in the recording studio in preparation for their third album. 'We can't go over there to promote it with Mariah just yet,' he said. However Nicky Byrne was more optimistic

However Nicky Byrne was more optimistic about Westlife's assault on the States. 'I've a funny feeling we will release it in the future with a new video,' he confirmed laying down the gauntlet for a Spice v Westlife race take over the American charts.

On a lighter note Nicky joked that Mariah Carey has been pestering Westlife with regular phone calls. 'She rings us every Friday night but we don't take her calls.'

Westlife are still streets ahead in the mid-week sales figures for the official worldpop-sponsored album charts with their second album Coast To Coast giving the Spice Girls third album Forever a furious thrashing.

Don't forget to be here at worldpop on Sunday 7pm for the full details of the latest UK official worldpop-sponsored singles and albums charts.

MAX BEESLEY SPEEKS TO MARIAH'S UK LAMBS - sent in by Ashes

A special Report from TFI friday: 10/11/00 MAX BEESLEY SPEEKS TO MARIAH'S UK LAMBS Some how I was on the guest list for the show and was therefore invited to sit upstairs. And guess who i started chating too...yep it was Max. I asked him what it was like being in the up coming release ATG and he told me it was an amazing feeling to know that he was in such a great project and with all the feedback he was getting from USA it was likely to be a success. He said working with a woman like mariah was a great experience...she is definately from the rare kind...got the looks, the talent and the dedication to do whatever she likes. I asked when the movie was out here in the UK, he told me April but could be earlier...it all depends on mariah cause she wants to do a publicity bliz in the UK to launch the movie, the soundtrack and the new single off the album...I asked him what it was called & he told me he couldn't tell me that, but it was definately a corker!!!

- Ashes also wrote that AAO has fallen in the UK from #27 to #40

MARIAH AND LUIS ENGAGED?? - sent in by lots of people =o)

Many have talked about the latest mention of Luis Miguel and Mariah Carey being engaged and that he gave her one heck of a diamond ring.

From Ray-

Hello Candice, I just heard on a radio station here in NY (103.5 WKTU) that Mariah & Luis Miquel are engaged but, Mariah is of course denying this rumor. She also denied an engagement rumor when she was engaged to Tommy Mottola!! Anyway, the radio station reporter, Michelle Visage also stated that Mariah is sporting a huge diamond on her finger and that Mariah & Luis will tie the knot after she films her movie in Toronto???? Does this make any sense? Mariah finished filming in Toronto in September! Maybe she meant they will tie the knot after Mariah is done promoting the movie & soundtrack.

Karina was kind enough to send this picture of the two together!

News~~~ WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN YOU GET OUT OF JAIL? "Genius of Love" has, like Mary Shelley's monster, a life all of its own. For Chris and Tina's first production outside of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, "Genius of Love" was unexpectedly sampled again in 1987 in a remix by Hank Shocklee to make "Tomorrow People," from the Grammy Award-winning album Conscious Party (Virgin), a No. 1 for Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers. In 1995, Mariah Carey also had a huge No. 1 with her own version of the song, "Fantasy." It continues to be frequently sampled by many various artists, including Tupac Shakur and Puff Daddy's roster of Bad Boy rappers and remixers. (Taken From: Tom Tom Club Online)

I was on Amazon.com and I was reading the manager of Amazon's list of "Ultimate Divas", and their albums. Neil ranked Mariah Carey no.2 under Celine Dion for Ultimate Divas and said "Mariah Carey is my favorite Diva. She is also, in my opinion, the best contemporary diva!" I'm so glad he appreciates Mariah's music. Other readers..etc. Said Mariah's "#1's" album was their fav of her albums and ranked her no.4, no.7..etc. I think it's great!

I just heard something on the Hollywood Hamilton Rythem Countdown. (radio show that plays the top 40 most played songs of the week) A co-host named Maria was interviewing an R&B star named Mya. Mya was in upper New York, on the set of her first movie. Mya says she's making a movie that takes place in the 70's -80's era, rollerblades and everything, and talks about how Jimmy Jam and Lewis are helping to produce her new soundtrack for the movie. Mya's and Mariah's movie's are so closely related, how's that for eerie?

Mya copying Mariah? Well, look at this picture if you don't believe me!:
