Details Release Date: Nov 15, 2005; Lead Performance: Mariah Carey; Genre: R&B

Decry it as a crass fourth-quarter repackaging stunt, but then go out and pick up Mariah Carey's The Emancipation of Mimi: Ultra Platinum Edition (with four additional songs), which actually improves on the original. For one, it's the only place to pick up the new chart-climbing ballad ''Don't Forget About Us,'' plus it's got the clubby silk-meets-sandpaper remix of ''We Belong Together.'' There's also a special edition available with a bonus DVD. With just four music videos, it's skimpy, but the two over-the-top clips featuring Eric Roberts as a sleazy sugar daddy make up for it.
