Mariah Carey’s Imperfect Struggle For Top Spot

Mariah Carey’s latest effort “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” is in a tight battle for the no.1 spot on next week’s Billboard 200. Released Tuesday, Carey’s “I Want To Know What Love Is” led album is predicted to sell anywhere from 160k – 170k. Unfortunately for Carey, Paramore’s “Brand New Eyes” is also on track to sell the same. In reports issued by Billboard and Hits Daily Double, Carey’s album has a fighting chance at scoring the top spot which would make “Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel” the diva’s seventh no.1 debut (only topped by Barbara Streisand). If Carey nets the no.1 spot she would also tie with Madonna, who has seven no.1 debuts under her belt. “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” features production from The-Dream and Tricky Stewart along with the hit summer anthem “Obsessed”. Led by the single “Touch My Body,” Carey’s 2008 effort ‘E=MC2′ debuted with over 463,000 copies sold.. The album later spawned the hit singles “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time,” “I Stay In Love,” and “Bye Bye”.
