Mariah Carey took to social media on Monday morning (April 27) to express her excitement and disbelief at her 2008 album E=MC2 unexpectedly topping the iTunes albums chart 12 years after its release.
“What is going on?????” the icon tweeted, sharing the surprise news with a series of mind-blown, lamb and sparkling heart emojis. Collecting herself, Carey went on to fully embrace the moment, writing, “How should we celebrate #JusticeForEMC2? I want to do a singing moment for you! Which song?”
In addition to lead single “Touch My Body,” E=MC2 also featured singles “Bye Bye,” “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time” and “I Stay in Love” as well as fan-favorite deep cuts like “I Wish You Well” and T-Pain collab “Migrate,” so Lambs are sure to have plenty of tracks to choose from for the triumphal “singing moment” to come from their queen.
Released on April 15, 2008, E=MC2 served as the superstar’s follow-up to 2005’s The Emancipation of Mimi, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earning Carey the largest first-week sales of her career. “Touch My Body” also peaked at the top of the Hot 100 and broke even more records for the singer, becoming Mariah’s eighteenth No. 1 hit and officially cementing her status as the solo artist with the most number one singles in pop music history.
