Mariah Carey Scores No. 1 R&B/Hip-Hop Album with 'Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse'

Mariah Carey The Elusive Chanteuse R&B Album

Mariah Carey’s new album, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse has debuted at #1 on this week’s Billboard’s Top R&B/Rap Albums chart with 58,000 copies sold, and lands at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 — making it her 17th top 10 album.

Her last non-holiday studio effort, 2009’s Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, also debuted at No. 3. 

Steve Bartels, CEO of Def Jam Recordings, says

“It is wonderful to see Mariah, the iconic artist, stay true to herself and deliver a carefully crafted body of work that will once again showcase her mass appeal across an enduring legion of worldwide fans.”

Let us not forget: Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history.

Congrats Mimi!
