She may have been tied for No. 1 in Grammy nominations announced yesterday, but it looks like Mariah Carey will have to settle for the runner-up spot (behind Fitty) when it comes to the top-selling CD of 2005. This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly (on stands today) rounds up this year’s record industry winners and losers, and includes 2005’s top 10 selling discs through Nov. 27 (note: totals reflect 2005 sales only, even for discs released in 2004).
