MTV Unplugged EP opened with less than 100K, I think- but not totally sure.
With the HSN tie-in and such, Mimi's album could do OK- but I imagine SuBo's album will be the top-selling holiday-related title of the year. Mimi will have a lot of promo, but we've seen in the past that promo over the last decade-plus isn't Mimi's best pal in terms of the effect it has on sales.
If I remember correctly, "MTV Unplugged" debuted with 85,000 copies
As for her promo, well... it played a huge part in TEOM's success, the problem with E=MC² and MOAIA was not the promo schedule itself but yes how this schedule was made and more important the singles choices they did. Specially in E=MC² she had a great promo line-up but if TMB was already a weak song for the first single, BB was a total disastrous choice and the fact that she did heavy promo on the first 1 or 2 weeks and kinda disappeared for a long time after that was not very good
