Indeed, Carey has been noted as the pioneer of Hip-Pop, redefining the R&B, Pop and Hip-Hop genres as well as influencing several artists including Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Still, some people still refuse to acknowledge her as a legend comparable to Whitney Houston or Madonna.
