Mariah Carey Earns UK Top 10 With ‘#1 To Infinity’

Published: Sunday 24th May 2015 by Sam

Mariah Carey still has intentional pull. Or, at the very least, her catalogue does.

Find out why below…

The diva’s latest greatest hits collection, ‘#1 To Infinity,’ rocketed its way into the top 10 of the Official UK Album Chart this evening.

Led by new song ‘Infinity,’ the set debuted at #8 on the tally.

Beyond serving as an impressive position for any R&B-flavoured release these days, it marks a major improvement from the #15 peak of Mimi’s last album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’ which sold just 6,547 first week in England last year.

What’s more, the charting sees the set become Mariah’s highest debuting offering on UK shores since 2008’s ‘E=MC2.’

Congrats Mimi! We’re hopeful that this sets a sound foundation for her to enjoy commercial success with new material in the future.

    Really? Omg, this is weird. Anyway, congrats for MC. She haven’t had a hit album or single there since 2008.

    Also, Happy Belated Birthday to my baby Paul. Stephy still loves you. And, my crazy sis Molly.

    • Molly May 24, 2015

      Thanks stephy.

    • RihNavy May 24, 2015

      I saw this and immediately jumped for joy! All this promo is really paying off and I feel like the public are starting to like her again, not to mention she’s improving every performance and Cesar’s Palace.

      And Keri Qween you messy b*tch keep it cute and keep Mariah out of your mouth.

      • Stephy. May 24, 2015

        Yes, honey. I love seeing Mariah have some success. She’s a legend & its more added towards her long list of accomplishments.

  2. Keri Qween May 24, 2015

      Your sister Marky Mark, will be here shortly. With his 1,000+ “Mooriah” accounts.

  5. Yonce May 24, 2015

    Kudos slaying at 50 isn’t easy.

    • TheElusiveLamb May 25, 2015

      LOL

  6. Centurion May 24, 2015

    It wasn’t Mark. Y’all were fooled when the troll quoted his old comments and then replied to itself with random names.

  7. Angie May 24, 2015

    Awwww!,am so happy for her

  8. LoveBey May 24, 2015

    Good for her! Her promo has very good recently. Hope she keeps it up

  9. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money May 24, 2015

    ???????? good for her

  10. BeyRihLiyah May 24, 2015

    congrats mimi and it will most likely do just as good when it reaches the Asian market because she is still HUGE in asia

    • Stephy. May 24, 2015

      Yes! The Asian’s are patiently waiting for the album. She’s the most successful Non-Asian artist in Japan. I’m so happy you know Mariah’s success.

      • BeyRihLiyah May 24, 2015

        of course I know Mariah’s career/stats she’s my og fave I literlly love her

  11. Lake Erie May 24, 2015

    Wow! Congrats MC! Glad she’s still appreciated in other places of the world.

  12. Rihanna Lately May 24, 2015

    That’s nice.

  13. Beygency May 24, 2015

    Congrats MiMi, I hope Janet’s new album is well received by the buying public. ????????????????????

    • Beygency May 24, 2015

      *upcoming

  14. Lmfao_Hoe May 24, 2015

    Like I said before, the album will do fine within time. Everyone loves to drag ppl first week sells instead of going by the quality of an album smh. Then ya wonder why good artists aren’t getting recognition or support. Long as she promote Infinity the album alone will do fine. I wish she did the same for IAMTEC with Faded, Cry, YDKWTD, Metorite, Beautiful, Camouflage, and Make It Look Good.

  15. True Lamb May 24, 2015

    Yessssssss for mimi!! Now lets see if she continues to promote the album beyond this first month by singing #Infinity everywhere!! she really needs to continue to push the new single in the USA more harder maybe with a “Good Morning Of America” Summer Concert Performance or a today show performance and maybe even the Ebt i mean BET awards would be a good spot performance this single has potential it just needs the push!!

    • Jimmy May 25, 2015

      She promoted “Infinity” all last week on tv, and the public is rejecting the single. It is a FLOP! It is #344 on itunes. Failue=re – what a loser!

  16. Theman May 24, 2015

    WOW THIS IS AWESOME ! THIS IS ONLY A COMPILATION & IT OUT CHARTED HER PREVIOUS EFFORTS.. SHE DOES WELL COMMERCIALLY IN ONE ASPECT OR ANOTHER MUSICALLY. SHE’S AWESOME !

  17. lolhart May 25, 2015

    Don’t want to put a dampener on things but album sales in the UK are so low right now that going Top 10 first week means nothing. The real test will be next week, then we can celebrate.

    • TheElusiveLamb May 25, 2015

      No we can celebrate now. Album sales are pretty low everywhere, so even if Mimi’s sales are low, she is blending in with the crowd.

      • lolhart May 25, 2015

        No shade intended with my comment. It’s just I’ve noticed in the UK lots of albums debut high and then plummet the next week and end up with shockingly low sales.

  18. Dossome May 25, 2015

    Her new album is doing really well in Asia,Middle East and Africa…Brazil,UK and Australia are also quite appreciative of her.This album could do well in the long run

    • TheElusiveLamb May 25, 2015

      I agree. I think it’s about the longevity for this compilation, not a peak and fall out of the top 50 by the second week and top 200 the third week.

  19. JOHNVIDAL May 25, 2015

    Really surprised. Go Mariah!
    Keep in mind she does zero promo out of the USA.

  20. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! May 25, 2015

    Taylor’s album. Is at 4 in the uk:) and spent 29 of the 30 weeks inside the top 10!!

    • TheElusiveLamb May 25, 2015

      Good for her, but this is about Mimi.

  21. TheElusiveLamb May 25, 2015

    Queen 🙂

  22. lolhart May 25, 2015

    The album’s not coming out in Japan until next month which could mean she has some big promo planned there.

  23. Jimmy May 25, 2015

    9,000 in sales in the UK – the album is dropping like a rock and will be out of the top 40 next week in the UK. Mariah is a FLOP!
