Mariah Carey (1990) Era
Barely on her twenties, Mariah Carey came into the spotlight in June 1990 with her self-titled debut album. Not many artists can celebrate a #1, 9 million selling debut album in the US, not many either sold well other half a million in Japan, nor can many claim a Top 10 album in the UK, New-Zealand, Australia, Netherlands and many more.
Yet, this incredibly successful debut failed to chart in France. Continuing to solidify its reputation of atypical market, this country hardly reacted to the arrival of this new diva. The main single of this LP Vision Of Love still was a moderate hit, peaking at #25 during Christmas week and lasting a good 14 weeks inside the Top 50 charts. Next song Someday appeared inside the ranking as well a few months later, peaking at a more modest #38.
Although Mariah Carey never managed to get into the Top 50, more than six months of promotion brought in an estimated 30,000 sales to the album.
