Mariah is at 63xp.

why is the bodyguard soundtrack regarded as a whitney album? it just features different artists too. Is the coyote ugly soundtrack a leann rimes album then or is there any rule how many songs from one artist have to be on one soundtrack to make it a whole credible album?

same can be said about the Moulin Rouge sountrack "Lady Marmalade" sold the album and made it super popular so I think if they are gonna include sountrack albums on artists totals they should do the same w/Christina/Pink/Mya/Lil Kim it was the biggest album in Australia of 01.
