Mariah Carey to Release Collector’s Set

Mariah Carey fans who go to the store to pick up her new album on September 15 better bring extra cash.

Island Def Jam will release a three CD collector’s set the same day as Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, Rap-Up.com has learned. The box set will include the songbird’s first three Island albums, 2002’s Charmbracelet, 2005’s The Emancipation of Mimi, and 2008’s E=MC², and be sold at a special low price. The packaging will have space for a fourth CD (hint, hint).

In addition, those who purchase the collector’s set will receive a Mariah poster to remind them of all the money they just spent.
