Legend chanteuse.

The legend chanteuse is about to get the recognition she deserves.

One of Mariah Carey’s biggest gripes is that people don’t believe she writes her own music. The thought has eaten away at her since the start of her career, but that could all change if she’s inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. For the record, Mimi has co-written 17 of her 18 No. 1s.

The Associated Press has a full list of the nominees.

As much as I give 2017 Mariah a hard time, she deserves this. Carey has more No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100 than anyone. If there’s anyone that should get inducted into the prestigious club, it’s Mariah.
