NUMBER 9: MARIAH CAREY
SALES: 118.2 Million Total Certified Units
200 Million Claimed Sales
Mariah was shepherded to divadom by powerful record exec (and her then husband) Tommy Mottola. Through the 1990s she was one of the biggest stars in pop. Her trademark Christmas albums were particular crowd pleasers, and now no Xmas seems complete without Mariah's version of 'All I want for Christmas is you'.
