She may be hard at work on a brand new LP set for release next year, but this year has seen Mariah Carey‘s 1994 effort ‘Merry Christmas’ soar back towards chart glory…storming iTunes Top 40 today!
Good news for the Pop icon below…
After earning a 5x Platinum certification for sales/shipments of 5 million US units sold, this morning saw the album enjoyed a renewed sales spike and soar to #36 on iTunes USA– doing so as the general public gears up to celebrate Christmas Day next month.
Currently outselling Britney Spears‘ latest studio album ‘Britney Jean’, the Walter Afanasieff produced effort now sits just one spot beneath Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ as its lead single ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ arrives at #47!
The icon’s continued success with the project comes months after the release of ‘Beautiful’, the Miguel penned single which has now been certified Platinum in the United States for sales of over 1 million units.
Pulled from her forthcoming LP ‘The Art of Letting Go‘, the jam’s run on the charts marked one of many achievements scored by the Island Def Jam music group this year, responsible for Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus‘ and ‘Bijoux 22‘, the digital smash released by singer/songwriter Elijah Blake.
