France Album Sales: Mariah Carey
MTV Unplugged (1992) Era
After months of articles on chartmasters.org, you must be familiar with the fact live sets are often good sellers when they are the closest product to a compilation in an artist discography. A greatest hits of unknown hits still doesn’t turn into a huge seller yet.
Both situations happened with MTV Unplugged 1992 EP. When it was first released, it hasn’t sold much because Mariah Carey was very far from being a star at that point and her first songs weren’t receiving recurring airplay. This situation led most consumers to elect first the #16 single I’ll Be There that was a well known song in France thanks to the original Jackson 5 hit.
As for becoming a good catalog seller thanks to the record being close to a compilation, this was soon going to become true too…
