Complex Music's "Best Albums of the Complex Decade"

>> Friday, April 6, 2012

Complex Music has counted down the "100 Best Albums of the Complex Era." The Emancipation of Mimi ranks at number 50, and this write-up is included:

50. Mariah Carey, Emancipation of Mimi (2005)
Label: Island

After picking up the pieces from Glitter and her failed contemporary-pop album, Charmbracelet, Mariah introduced fans to her alter-ego Mimi in her 10th album, The Emancipation of Mimi. Once she set Mimi free, it brought back the R&B soulful songstress on tracks like "Fly Like A Bird," "We Belong Together" and "Mine Again," and became the best-selling album in the U.S. in 2005 and her best-selling in a decade.

With appearances from Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, Pharrel, Twista, and Nelly, Mimi revived her career with singles like "It's Like That" and "Shake It Off." Rumor has it Mimi and hubby Nick Cannon listened to "We Belong Together" immediately after the birth of their twins... after playing "Fantasy," of course.
