May 5th may bring with it new music from Mariah Carey, but it would seem love for her older material continues to garner more support from the general public this year.
Why the icon’s commercial pull is far more potent than her naysayers would have the world believe?
Good news below…
Produced Ernesto ‘DJ Clue?’ Shaw and co-written by Carey herself, 1999’s ‘Heartbreaker‘ is the fourteenth of the entertainer’s singles to top the ‘Hot 100′, certified Gold for shipments of 500,000 units shortly after its release.
Last week, 15 years after its September 21st 1999 launch date, the cut sailed to a Silver certification in the UK for sales of 200,000 units, years after its ‘Rainbow’ mothership soared to sales of 3 million units in the US alone!
In other chart news, Pink‘s ‘The Truth About Love’ sits at US sales of 1,954,000 units as Pharrell Williams’ ‘G I R L’ arrives at the 482,000 units sold worldwide milestone!
On higher ground, 48,000 units moved in the last week brings Beyonce‘s ‘Beyonce’ to a global total of 3,051,000 copies sold, moved between the December of 2013 and the March of this year.
