Mariah Carey’s New Single ‘GTFO’ Sells Zero Copies in Three Days

Mariah Carey’s career is tanking. While her weight goes up, her album sales go down. Is there a correlation there? Hmm…maybe. Or maybe it’s her diva behavior and karma finally biting her in her ass.

Carey’s new single, “GTFO,” gtfo’d out of the charts, selling zero streaming or downloads the weekend after its release. That’s roughly Friday September 14th to the 17th. Zero. A fat goose egg.

Read some lyrics from “GTFO”:

“How about you get the f**k out? /
How about you take your things and be on your merry way? /
Fly off with a wink, bye bye, baby /
How about you scusea me baby let me call your valet.”

I listened to the song. Horrible lyrics aside, the problem is you would never know it’s a Mariah Carey song. She can’t hit the high notes anymore and that was always her trademark. Now they alter her voice to sound like any other singer on the charts now. Except Carey’s…not on the charts.

And people don’t even want to watch her at her Las Vegas residency. She couldn’t sell half of the tickets to her shows there. I bet they either comped a lot of drunk Midwesterners or put a tarp over the empty seats like at stadiums for crappy baseball teams no one cares about.

Luckily, Christmas is coming up so you’ll be hearing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” about twenty million times. That’ll pay off Carey’s mortgage for a few months.

Her career, though, is over. Not even signing to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation can save her.
