But it also says a lot that she is still able to match her peers in the streaming era despite failing in album sales. They’ll too have to do better singles wise and in streaming.
Amazing what having a hot young R&B star on your record can do!
A current hot R&B star, a great song and a legend, I believe are the 3 reasons. Didn’t this song give Miguel his highest peaking single? I rest my case.
Indeed, #Beautiful is still Miguel's biggest hit in North America and best selling single outside of the United States.
In terms of records sold the MIAM era was quite something: chartsmasters
2014 - 2,850,000 - Me. I am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse
2013 - 2,100,000 - Loved Me Back to Life
In terms of revenue Loved made 50 times as much money due to 90% of its total being albums sales.
But The whole era wasn't that huge of a trainwreck than many say it was. It was seriously bad and dull and the lambs were actually robbed of a real era bc the album only stayed on the charts for 1 week in most places and no single had any life in it after the album release... but it is what it is.
