Mariah Carey is the debut album by American singer Mariah Carey, released in the United States on June 12, 1990 (see 1990 in music) by Columbia Records. Although sales were initially slow, it made Carey a star in her home country and yielded four number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, with the album itself spending eleven weeks at the top of the Billboard 200. The album and its combination of R&B-tinged pop ballads (including the singles "Vision of Love", "Love Takes Time" and "I Don't Wanna Cry") and up-tempo numbers ("Someday", "There's Got to Be a Way") impressed many critics, though not all reviews were favorable. To date, the album has sold more than nine million copies in the U.S. and over 17.5 million copies worldwide. It is Carey's third best-selling album in the U.S. after Daydream (1995) and Music Box (1993).
