Definitely.

  • She was the first one to do the exposed breast pasty thing long before Lil Kim.
  • She was also the first one to make a rent-a-rapper go to #1 and basically created the pop girl featuring rapper trend long before Mariah Carey.
  • She invented the transracial spray painted skin color look long before J.Lo, Ariana, etc.

Opposites Attract. First pop girl with a rent-a-rapper to get a hit (actually first song with a rapper in general to go #1).

Um... this was the 80s. That was risque then. Her pasty is just bigger than the later ones.

Lies made by her stans. They claim she started the trend (lie) and they claim she had hits (lie) when her rap versions of her songs in the 90s (like Fantasy rap remix) weren't even mainstream hits.

The keyword here is trend. Unless you can provide evidence that Paula created the rent-a-rapper trend (meaning people from her generation followed her blueprint), then Mariah still gets the credit. :cm:

 

Also, music historians have credited Mariah with successfully fusing the bridge between pop + hip-hop, so no it’s just not her “stans.”

The music "historians" are her fans writing articles. In the age of Internet, you should know that people completely rewrite history and turn it into "truth" (see: Janet's erasure).

 

But yes, very good point with the underlined. After Paula's huge success with a rent-a-rapper, big pop girls like Miss Trend Hopper Madonna, Janet, etc. Hell, even Celine Dion did after Opposites Attract:

 

 

Pop girls died out in the 90s because of grunge/rock so Mariah did later revive the trend that already existed.

Um... considering that all white girls do it nowadays with their fake tans and bronzers that are 100x darker than their natural skin, yes, it's obviously a positive since Paula started the trend. Moreover, she's not white so it's more natural for her. She started the racially ambigious look. TREND SETTER. 

 

And LOL @ one hit song. Paula had 6 consecutive #1 singles and other Top 20 hits. Forever Your Girl is still ranked Top 5 in the biggest female album eras of all time the Billboard 200 and Paula is ranked Top 30 on the biggest artists on the Hot 100 with only 15 singles.

I still had the most #1s for rap in the 1980s and 1990s and MC Skat Cat brought the blacks to the center for this collab.
