Mariah Carey’s 22nd Charting Album Arrives: Taking the second highest debut on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, Mariah Carey enters at No. 2 with #1 To Infinity, with 15,000 copies sold. It’s the 22nd charting album on the list for Carey (and 17th top 10), dating back to 1990 when her self-titled debut album peaked at No. 3. The new 19-track set is a trip through her 18 Billboard Hot 100 hits (the most by a solo act) in chronological order, culminating with her latest single, “Infinity.”
“Infinity” steps 19-17 on Hot R&B Songs in its fourth week, the rise boosted by a 112 percent gain in streams (to 1.1 million). Two teasers for the video clip uploaded to Carey's Vevo on YouTube channel (on May 18 and 19) aided in the jump, propelling plays on the platform by 125 percent from the prior week. The track also re-enters R&B Digital Songs (No. 25), with an 81 percent climb in sales, to 6,000 downloads.
