mariah carey's emotions are certified as 4 x platinum, not 5 x platinum!

i think you are referring to the mistaken certification by her fans!

RIAA has it as 4 platinum for official one!

you should edit it for that album's certification for the correction!

Worldwide Madonna's record company claims she has sold (but really shipped) over 200 million albums. That is far more than Mariah most definatly. She has only shipped something like 160 milion albums as far as I am aware. :-?

In 2003 VH-1 did an hour long documentary about Mariah called 'The Complete Mariah Carey' and these are the figures they gave for her albums: (I'm assuming they got these figures from Sony)

Mariah Carey - 11 million
Emotions - 7 million
MTV Unplugged - 6 million
Music Box - 23 million
Merry Christmas - 10 million
Daydream - 17 million
Butterfly - 8 million
#1s - 12.6 million
Rainbow - 6 million
Glitter - 1 million
Charmbracelet - 2 million

Your estimate??? Don't lie. it's taken from her fan site.
If you add up, those sales are way too high.
Greatest Hits sold 12 million??? Which is laughable.

There is just NO WAY 'Just Whitney' sold 2 million worldwide. That album biggest market was the the USA still it sold just a bit over 500k so the 2m figure for the world, specially since the album failed to hit the TOP40 mostly everywhere is pretty wrong :-?

The "woman rom greece" is Nana Mouskouri and this "official list" was pure UNofficial shit by a joker who has spread the list like it was an official one, which were of course fake.
