CHART PREVIEW: MARIAH’S EMANCIPATION TO TOPPLE
50’S MASSACRE
Should We Call It a Comeback? Diva’s Latest Hitting a Really High Note
As the counting continues this Monday morning, it looks like Mariah Carey’s new album, The Emancipation of Mimi (Island) is headed for a huge #1 debut on first-week sales that could reach as high as 400k by the time the chart is final.

That would give Carey her biggest first week ever, outpacing 1999’s Rainbow, which logged first-week sales of around 320k.

But perhaps more importantly, The Carey triumph will end 50 Cent’s six-week, nearly three-million unit run at #1 with The Massacre (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope). As it looks now, 50 is locked in a battle for #2 with Epic’s Mudvayne, whose Lost and Found is on track to sell in the neighborhood of 150k.

Meanwhile, Garbage’s Bleed Like Me (Interscope) is on track to make a #4 debut on first-week sales of over 70k.

And to round out the Top Five, it looks like it will be either Faith Evans, Now 18 or Beck, each of which looks like it will come in at around 60k.
