NEW ALBUM: MARIAH CAREY | JOY TO THE WORLD (EP)
Mariah Carey has returned with her #MC30 campaign, releasing a new EP dedicated to her astonishing rendition of “Joy To The World.” The seven-track release contains assorted mixes, including a Flava and Celebration mix, to the holiday staple she belted out on her multi-platinum 1994 album "Merry Christmas." The #M30 campaign launched in July 2020 with "The Live Debut," an extended play of her first live performances. She followed with several other EPs highlighting various albums and singles such as "Daydream," "Music Box," and "Butterfly." The series of EPs set the stage for "The Rarities," a double album consisting of vaulted songs and live material captured from a show at the Tokyo Dome in 1996. Carey recently landed a top ten single on R&B radio and Billboard charts with her participation in Jam & Lewis’ song “Somewhat Loved.” The chart entry occurred following the announcement of her new liqueur brand called Black Irish. As of 2020, Carey's "Merry Christmas" album was certified eight-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipment of eight million copies in the US. As of December 2019, the album has sold 5.7 million copies in the US and is one of the best-selling holiday albums in the United States.
