"The Emancipation of Mimi" hits 6 million in sales


Mariah Carey's 2005 album The Emancipation Of Mimi tops the 6 million mark in U.S. sales this week. The album was #1 for two weeks and received a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. This is Carey's third album to be certified at the 6 million mark. It follows Daydream (7,657,000) and Music Box (7,277,000). Carey has two other albums on Nielsen SoundScan's running list of the 200 best-selling albums in its history: Merry Christmas (5,299,000) and Mariah Carey (4,885,000). (The latter album, Carey's 1990 debut, sold additional copies prior to Nielsen SoundScan's 1991 launch.) Carey is the only female solo artist with five albums on Nielsen SoundScan's top 200 list. How about Celine Dion? She currently has four. The Colour Of My Love has sold 4,558,000 copies, which puts it 10K copies short of making the list.
