Mariah Carey's 'E=MC²' tops US iTunes album chart, 12 years after its release




On April 15, 2008, Mariah Carey released E=MC², her eleventh studio album. The followup to 2005's career-revitalizing The Emancipation of Mimi, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with sales of 463,000 copies and yielded Carey's 18th Hot 100 chart topper, the slinky "Touch My Body."

Now, it's returned to the top of the US iTunes album chart thanks to an online #JusticeForE=MC2 campaign. (The fact that it's currently on sale for $4.99 couldn't have hurt, either.) Though it received generally positive reviews from critics, E=MC² is considered one of the Elusive Chanteuse's most underrated albums by fans Lambs and the victim of poor single choices—of the three following "Touch My Body," only the emotional power ballad "Bye Bye" cracked the Hot 100.
