On June 4, critically acclaimed singer Mariah Carey had her official album sales results revealed to the public. In a shocking surprise, her album did not go No. 1 on the charts like a lot of her past albums have for first week sales.
Her album was No. 3 on the charts. Although it did not reach No.1 status, her newest album titled Me. I Am Mariah…The Exclusive Chanteuse was in the top 10 selling albums. Carey has had an album reach in the top 10 in sales an astonishing 17 times.
It has been almost five years since her last release of an album, which was called Memories of an Imperfect Angel. It is the longest period of time Carey waited to release an album besides her Christmas albums, according to Billboard.
The superstar diva has an extensive catalog of albums that have gone No. 1 on the charts. She has had six albums debut at No. 1 with sales above the 100,000(or 200,000, or 300,000) mark in her legendary career, reports MTV News.
