Mariah Carey, E=MC (squared) Album Cover

Island

No doubt thanks in part to her full-scale military-style assault on TV screens over the past week, Mariah Carey's E=MC2 is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard album charts.

On Tuesday alone, its first day out, the album sold 154,000 copies, nearly as much as the total sales for this week's current reigning record champ, Leona Lewis. The latter's Spirit sold a leading 205,000 copies this week, making the Simon Cowell protégé the first British solo artist to nab the top spot in more than two decades.

Hope it was good while it lasted.
