The Emancipation of Mimi - Singles

Singles

"It's Like That" was released as the album's lead single on January 7, 2005. Critics predicted the song would re-ignite Carey's popularity among MTV viewers. It became her highest-charting song internationally in years, and peaked at number sixteen on the US Billboard Hot 100. "We Belong Together", the album's second single, became one of the biggest hits of Carey's career. It became her sixteenth chart topping single in the United States, spending fourteen weeks on the Hot 100's peak; the longest stay of the 2000s. Aside from breaking several Nielsen BDS records, the song was name "song of the 2000s decade" by Billboard. "We Belong Together" topped the singles charts in Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands, and attained a top five peak in Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

"Shake It Off" was the third single released from The Emancipation of Mimi. The song peaked at number two on the Hot 100, being barred from the top spot by Carey's previous single, "We Belong Together". It became the first and only time in Billboard history that a female artist occupied the top two spots on the Hot 100. It was released as a double A-side with "Get Your Number" in the UK and Australia, where it reached the top ten. "Don't Forget About Us" was the fourth release from the album and the first from the Ultra Platinum Edition. The song became Carey's seventeenth chart topper in the United States, tying her with Elvis Presley for the most number one singles by a solo artist (a record she surpassed in 2008 with "Touch My Body"). "Say Somethin'" was released as the album's fifth single in the US, at the same time as "Fly Like a Bird"'s released as a promotional single.
