Mariah Carey Projected To Sell 500,000 Copies In Debut Week

Mariah Carey is bringing back hope to record companies with the release of her new album “E=MC²”. Her sales projections of “E=MC²” are over 500,000 copies in its first week.

After her album promotion with television appearances on “Oprah” and “American Idol”, the singer is poised to make another #1 debut. Mariah has already broken records with this album, by tying The Beatles with her eighteenth #1 hit on the Billboard charts.

The album’s music appeals to a lot of genres such as Pop, R&B and Hip-Hop, but some of her songs also include Gospel and Reggae beats for example on “Cruise Control”. On “Side Effects” she speaks about her marriage to Tommy Mottola, describing it as a “private hell”, the “emotional abuse” she saw during this time and the side effects she still suffers from.

British newcomer, Leona Lewis, is expected to come in second place with her debut album “Spirit” that was released last week.

“E=MC²” is currently available in stores and at online retailers via Island Records.
