Mariah Carey made her debut back in 1990 with her self titled multi-platinum album. Since then, she has made history by being having the most Number 1s by a solo artist, in the whole world. Second behind to legendary band, The Beatles. Now with her 12th studio album, Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel, it's said that she's battling Paramore for top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart. I wonder who'll be top, though. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, she is the third best-selling female artists and sixteenth overall recording artist. She is ranked as the best-selling female artist of the U.S. Nielsen SoundScan era (third-best-selling artist overall), with shipments of over 62.5 million albums in the U.S. and has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide. Her vocal trademark is her ability to sing in the whistle register. According to Forbes, Carey was the sixth richest woman in entertainment as of January 2007, with an estimated net worth of US $225 million.
