Enjoying one of the most extraordinary years of her entire career, Mariah Carey's 6x-platinum Island Records album The Emancipation Of Mimi generated three Grammy awards and recently passed its one year anniversary on the Billboard 200 Albums chart (this week marks its 58th week on the chart). Mimi includes MariahÃ‚â€™s 16th and 17th #1 career singles, Ã‚â€œWe Belong TogetherÃ‚ and Ã‚â€œDonÃ‚â€™t Forget About Us,Ã‚ respectively Ã‚â€“ which tied one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard Hot 100 history, Elvis PresleyÃ‚â€™s 17 #1Ã‚â€™s. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist with the potential to surpass the BeatlesÃ‚â€™ all-time high of 20 #1 hits. Mimi, the biggest-selling album of 2005, has sold over 9 million units worldwide to date, bringing MariahÃ‚â€™s career sales to over 160 million units worldÃ‚Â¬wide.
