This plus greatest hits and merry Christmas is a good comprehensive collection of her timeless discography.
Merry Christmas will most likely outsell Infinity's current total sales in December. :lol: :lol: I hope Sony re-certifies it soon (maybe when it has reached 5,7-5,8 million on soundscan). It is her 5th pending 6x platinum (or better) album!!!

I think that the GH album will severely slow down in sales. It is the perfect time for sony to re-certify it 2x platinum bc it is not going to ever reach 3xp status (1,500,000). That would be great promotion in line with her Hollywood star to name her also the second highest certified female Artist in the United States of all times if they re-certify her.

I would not let that kind of promo slip thru my fingerz @sonypeople.

South Korea is a BIG market for Mariah!

I'm glad it's selling consistently there.

it used to be big... nowadays.. S. Korea is a tiny market, esp. for western acts... Mariah - if she has a hit album there - still pulls 20k there.

Mariah, however, is the best selling western artist among all recording artists in South Korea (of all times).

Looks like Infinity is smashing in South Korea.

South Korea's main digital singles chart:

33 (30) 02 Infinity

South Korea's International Digital singles chart:

02 (02) 02 Infinity

It's not smashing due to downloads though, but through sales from "background music" sites where people buy music to be used and played in the background of profiles on social media sites. :lol:

shipments? those are SALES, except for Brazil.

#1 to Infinity has probably shipped:

50k in the United States
35k in the United Kingdom
30k in Japan

150,000 total shipment is plausible. (MIAM 300,000)

those numbers are a disgrace..

her 90's catalogue shipped: 125,000,000 albums
- 14,000,000 - Debut
- 8,500,000 - Emotions
- 6,500,000 - Unplugged
- 27,000,000 - Music Box
- 13,500,000 - Merry Christmas
- 21,000,000 - Daydream
- 15,500,000 - #1's
- 10,500,000 - Butterfly
- 8,500,000 - Rainbow

her 00's catalogue shipped: 24,000,000 albums
- 2,500,000 - Glitter
- 3,500,000 - Greatest Hits
- 3,100,000 - Charmbracelet
- 0,500,000 - The Remixes
- 10,000,000 - The Emancipation of Mimi
- 2,500,000 - E=MC²
- 0,750,000 - The Ballads
- 1,100,000 - Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel

her 10's catalogue shipped: 1,350,000 albums ...worldwide
- 0,750,000 - Merry Christmas II You
- 0,050,000 - Playlist: The Very Best Of
- 0,100,000 - The Essential
- 0,300,000 - Me. I am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse
- 0,150,000 - #1 To Infinity


reaching 2m decade end albums sales with her 10's releases is going to be very hard. :x
