Due to the work she did in the 1980s and 1990s, Mariah Carey was safely a legend by the 2000s. But, her reputation took hits due to her personal life and the emotional breakdowns she was having. A low point came when she had a nervous breakdown live during “TRL” on MTV.
Mariah Carey unexpectedly turned it around when she signed with Def Jam in 2004. Working with Jermaine Dupri, who was fresh off phenomenal work with Usher, Mariah Carey crafted a classic album. The summer of 2005 saw her own the radio with “We Belong Together.”
There was a solid four years where Mariah Carey had solid albums and notable singles that were big on the radio. Recent years, Mariah Carey has stayed out of the spotlight, as she was being a good wife to Nick Cannon and mother to their twins. Living the single life, Mariah Carey announced her album, #1 To Infinity, which dropped this week and is facing disappointing first week sales of 14 to 16,000 copies.
