2005: 50 Cent, Mariah Carey neck in neck in CD sales

50 Cent, Mariah Carey neck in neck in CD sales

BY ROBERT HILBURN

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES Related news from the Web

The CD sales story of the week belongs to "American Idol," but the sales story of the year is the tight race between 50 Cent and Mariah Carey.

With just eight days left in 2005, it looks as if Carey's dramatic year-end surge will allow her to overtake the New York rapper and capture album-of-the-year sales honors.

50 Cent's "The Massacre" has sold more than 4.8 million copies since early March, Nielsen SoundScan reported Wednesday. Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" has sold nearly 4.6 million since it hit stores in April.

But her album is a far hotter item going into the last days of the year. "Mimi" sold 191,000 more copies to rank No. 7 for the week, while "Massacre" sold only 21,000 copies last week to rank No. 127.

If 50 Cent's album continues selling at the same pace, Carey would edge past "Massacre" if "Mimi" sells about 260,000 more copies by Dec. 31.

Carey's showing is one of the most dramatic comebacks in pop history.

Kelly Clarkson's "Break-

away" shapes up as the year's third-biggest seller, with sales of 4.1 million through Wednesday. The CD, which was released in January, sold 181,000 copies last week to finish No. 8 on the chart.

It's not a surprise that Fifty's albums are selling less lately, as it's probably due to the game (and I don't mean "The Game") he released, which has pretty much all 50 Cent songs ever released on its soundtrack (I'm not sure about G-Unit songs), plus some never released material too.
