Mariah Carey’s Net Worth:
American singer, musician, record maker, and actress, Mariah Carey who has a net worth of $520 million and is the best-selling female artist in the history of the Billboard charts has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide to date.
Mariah Carey who was given a $100 million recording contract with Virgin, that was the greatest contract in the historical backdrop of music at the time in 2000, was raised on Long Island and where she did different part-time job to supplement her singing career before meeting Columbia Records maker Tommy Mottola, who signed her to the label and later married her in 1993.
The singer’s debut album, Mariah Carey, that reached number one spot on the Billboard charts and earned her a Grammy for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance kept releasing very productive albums on Columbia, including Music Box, that spent 128 weeks on the charts, and Daydream, that included a few number-one singles and was the best successful album on American radio in 1996.
In 1997, Carey who left Mottola and got separated from Columbia, encountered a string of personal problems, including fallings-out with several labels and the consistent panning of her semi-autobiographical film ‘Glitter’. But in 2005, Carey released a new album titled The Emancipation of Mimi’, that restored her glory after it became the best-selling album of the year, while in 2008, she released a new album E=MC2 that became the the best-selling album in the first week of her career and also making her the artist with the second most number-one singles in the history of pop music, above Elvis Presley and second to the Beatles.
Mariah Carey who after achieving this feat and got married to ace actor/comedian/musician/ TV show host Nick Cannon in 2008, continued to release many more successful albums.
