Veteran music label boss, L.A. Reid, has shocked people with his very honest and likely comment.

He said veteran singer, Mariah Carey won’t be topping the charts the way she did in her heyday despite trying to make a comeback with her latest Vegas residence.

”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,” Reid, who also happens to be her boss, explained during an interview with Billboard on May 17.

Reid also mentioned other veterans who are notably struggling to make a splash with their new work in this time.

“Nobody that put out records 25 years ago is going to have a No. 1. Not Paul [McCartney], Stevie [Wonder], Bruce[Springsteen], Mick [Jagger] or Keith [Richards]. Not Prince, not anyone,” he said.

He added: “So if she can get on the radio, we’ve done damn good. Would we like to have a No. 1? F**k yeah, I’m greedy. But it’s not realistic.”

Carey premiered her new single, ‘Infinity’ at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Vegas on May 17 and received quite an applause from a young crowd.
