Asking once again for I know what you want to be included in charmbracelet streams since its present in the deluxe version of the album (here’s the link) https://open.spotify.com/album/60uzoZyNIXRVhhxTMHxe7P?si=y7wkZn4YTdSMLnzOeD8mnQ


RIAA is doing fake certification for mariah carey!
MTV Unplugged certified 4 x platinum as SHORT FORM ALBUM in 1994.
500,000 copies for a platinum unit.

Now they change the SHORT FORM ALBUM to STANDARD.

Now the album was shift from 2 million to 4 million without any update!
That’s rediculous

This is not accurate because in 2003, Mariah Carey was awarded with Chopard Diamond Award at the World Music Awards in honor of over 150 million albums sales worldwide during physical sales era prior to the digital sales era (2004). Confirmed by Sony and EMI. That means she has already sold that much albums at that time therefore, some figures for her other albums are incomplete. Below is the breakdown of sales per album as of 2003: Mariah Carey  – 17 Million Emotions – 12.25 Million MTV Unplugged – 9.5 Million Music Box – 27 Million Merry Christmas – 15.8 Million… Read more »


Awards and record labels orchestrate flattering stats for their artists, that’sbeen happening for years, it’s a promotional too. It’s like Elvis’ record label falsely claiming he’d sold 1 billion records for years now. It’s not based on the reality of the receipts. Not to mention, Carey blew up in the Soundscan era, so records for her total sales are quite accurate. She hasn’t sold 150 million albums by any metric.


The last data shows that Caution sold 100000 copies in the United States,18000 copies in China and 8000 copies in Japan


Caution sale:
US 110k
China 18k
Japan 9k
UK 8k
Canada 4k
Austria 2k
Others 5k
Total 156k

I dont mind so much to get a full update, but it would be interesting to see how much Caution has sold after quite an underperformance.


Billboard reported 250000 physical sales only but no clue about the rest of the world


It’s not reported 250,000 physical sales.
It sold nearly 100,000 copies by May 2019.
Then it drop out of the album sales chart


Probably is the worldwide figure after all
