FHM (For Him Magazine) Thai Edition featured the sexy pose of Mariah Carey on its cover this month. It’s been a long time since MC was last seen on magazine cover in Thailand, not to mention FHM. In fact, this set of pictures was first published in FHM UK Edition a few months ago in the time of the release of her new studio album "The Emancipation of Mimi." The coming back of Mariah on FHM Thai Edition this month could be marked as a special occasion; as the upcoming Billboard Hot 100 Chart for the week ending of 10 September, Mariah will set a new record as the first female artist to have both Number 1 and Number 2 on top of the chart at the same time. The single "We Belong Together" has spent 14 weeks on the top position, making it a five-way tie for the second-longest running Number 1 on the chart history, while the single "Shake It Off" claims up 2 spots from Number 4 to Number 2 with another "Greatest Gainer / Airplay" status – it is the third week that this single got this status. We will have to see if "We Belong Together" could make it at the top of the chart for another 3 weeks to break the record of 16 weeks on Number 1 of Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men’s "One Sweet Day," or "Shake It Off" will make it to the top and become Mariah’s 17th Number 1 single.
I am sure September would be a hot month for Mariah both on Billboard Chart and on magazine stand here in Thailand. [See a cover of FHM Thai Edition September 2005 below]
