CSPC: Mariah Carey Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 2 – Later Compils & Lives

This is not really worth commenting on much since all the recent compilations are fairly low sellers. Expected providers dominate their tracklists – Music Box, Daydream and, when included, The Emancipation of Mimi.

Hi MJD,

Is there any way you can explain how her album “Merry Christmas” was recently certified 8x Platinum? It was certified 6x Platinum in 2019, so the jump seems hard to figure out.

Also RIAA has had some other album certs that are confusing recently. Kanye West & Jay-Z’s “Watch the Throne” is certified 5x Platinum, even though the equivalent units seem to be barely past 3 million!

Thanks

I think merry christmas was already eligible for 7×/8×platinum in 2019 but Mariah’s label only paid for the 6×platinum cert.

Probably her record label havent issued for a re audit on the album for quite some time, and when they finally request for an audit, the album jump from 6-8 million.
