Best Selling Mariah

"The Emancipation of Mimi" the last Mariah Carey album sold very nice number of 290,000 copies in the week ending December 25. That brings her total to 4.86 million copies on the year, compared to 4.83 million for rapper 50 cent "The Massacre," which came out in March. Mimi slipped ahead of The Massacre by 32,000 copies.
But Mariah and 50's had better years in past. 50 Cent's 2003 debut Get Rich of Die Tryin has sold 7.4 million to date, while Mariah Carey's 1995 album Daydream sold 7.5 million copies in the US.
The top selling album last week, according to SoundScan, was Mary J. Blige's "The Breakthrough," which sold 727,000 copies in its first week. Jamie Foxx's "Unpredictable," also just released, sold 598,000 copies.

Still, the success of "Mimi" marks a dramatic turnaround for Carey, 35, whose career hit the skids four years ago. She is now tied with Elvis Presley at No. 2 on the all-time Hot 100 list with 17 chart-topping singles. Her last album has also earned Carey eight Grammy nominations including Record Of the Year and Song of the Year for “We Belong Together,” and Album Of the Year.
