Mariah Carey – Rainbow (1999)
Claimed Sales – 15,000,000
Estimated Sales – 8,000,000
Yes, Mariah Carey makes her second entry on this list. Question: is it the last? Place your bet.
To be honest, Rainbow sold well everywhere. Just not well enough. Losing ground in several places, most notably in Japan, this album joins Emotions as her weakest 90s sellers. I guess it’s not that hard to recover from this disappointment when you realize such a huge seller is your weakest album!
Like several albums mentioned before, catalog sales of this record are way too weak to ever expect the 10 million total to be eclipsed.
