After making television appearances on "Oprah" and "American Idol," Mariah Carey is poised to make another #1 debut with her latest release E=MC².
Carey's promotional blitz for her eleventh studio album E=MC² appears to be working. Just a day after the project's release, trade publication HitsDailyDouble is already projecting that over 500,000 copies of the album will be sold in its first week; great news for Mariah, who recently made history by surpassing Elvis Presely's record for No. 1 hit singles, scoring eighteen on the Billboard charts.
Taking their cue from one-day sales reports, experts are speculating that Carey may even reach 600,000 copies sold, making her the favorite for the #1 spot on the album sales charts by a wide margin. Mariah's success will upend British newcomer, Leona Lewis whose debut album Spirit was released last week.
While Lewis registered big in her debut, Carey is out to prove she's not nearly finished with her reign over the charts. The predicted sales success of Mariah's E=MC² comes after the project was leaked online two weeks ahead of its release date.
E=MC² is currently available in stores and at online retailers via Island Records.
