Charts

Billboard Hot 100 achievements

  • Carey is the most successful active artist in Billboard Hot 100 Chart history.
  • Carey is the most successful female artist in Billboard Hot 100 Chart history based on no. 1 hits. On April 2nd, 2008, Mariah passed Elvis Presley with most no. 1 hits as a solo artist, when Touch My Body became her 18th #1.
  • Carey holds the record for most #1 hits (18) of any female in Billboard Hot 100 chart history. Madonna is at a distant 2nd place with (12), followed closely by Whitney Houston with (11), and Janet Jackson with (10.) She is in prime position as the only active artist who has a realistic shot at beating the The Beatles, who holds the record with 20 # 1 hits. As of April 2nd, 2008, Carey's Touch My Body reached #1 thanks to digital release, thus surpassing her tie with Elvis. She now has 18 #1 hits, thereby making her the most successful Solo artist in Billboard Hot 100 Chart history, placing Elvis in 2nd place with (17,) and followed by Michael Jackson who has (13,) and Madonna with (12.)
  • Carey is tied with Elvis as the only artists to have the most cumulative weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (seventy-nine, as of the week of April 9th, 2008) [8]
  • Carey wrote or co-wrote 17 of her 18 #1 hits, the most for any female composer. This means she's surpassed Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, who wrote seven #1 songs for other artists besides his own group's nine. John Lennon has 26 #1 hits as a writer or co-writer, and Paul McCartney has 32, although not all of these hits are their own. The only song she did not write or co-write was her rendition of the Jackson 5's I'll Be There.
  • When "Fantasy", "One Sweet Day", and "Honey" debuted at number one on the Hot 100, Carey became the artist with the most singles to debut at number one (only fifteen songs have ever debuted at pole position, all since 1995). She also became the first female artist (and second artist, behind Michael Jackson) to ever have a number-one debut with "Fantasy" in 1995. However she also set records by 1) Debuting with 2 singles in a row at the top (Fantasy and One Sweet Day), 2). She was the only artist (male/female) to have more than 1 single debut at top, and 3), and the only artist (male/female) to have 3 single debuts at the top. Before September 1995, Billboard used a methodology that in practical terms made chart-topping debuts impossible for any artist.
  • With twenty-two songs (eighteen number ones, plus: "Can't Let Go", "Endless Love", "Loverboy", and "Shake It Off") that have peaked at #2 on the Hot 100, she is only one song behind current record-holder, Elvis Presley, who has twenty-three top-two hits (seventeen number ones, plus "Love Me", "Wear My Ring Around Your Neck", "A Fool Such As I", "Can't Help Falling in Love", "Return to Sender", and "Burning Love"). Many of these predate the switch from the Top 100 chart to the Hot 100 chart in August 1958. However, Billboard considers 1954/1955 to be the line of demarcation; 1955–58 chart totals are included by Billboard in tabulating their "Top Artist Achievements".
  • Carey is the only artist to have entered the Billboard Hot 100 at least once every year from 1990 to 2006. Other artists such as Elton John, Madonna and Elvis Presley have had longer streaks of this kind, but not during this same period (with the arguable exception of Madonna, whose streak went from 1983 to 2006).
  • Carey is the only artist to have the first singles from all her studio albums top the charts in the 1990s. (Her run was broken in 2001 when "Loverboy", the lead single from Glitter, peaked at number two). Through The Rain from Charmbracelet peaked at a low #83, while It's Like That (from The Emancipation of Mimi) stopped at #16. Recently, however, Touch My Body from E=MC2 leapt to the #1 spot thanks to digital release, thus making it her 7th album to have a lead-off #1 single, and overall 8 albums with at least one #1 hit.

Billboard Hot 100 Airplay/BDS Airplay achievements

  • At fourteen weeks at number one, "We Belong Together" is the longest running single on the Hot 100 Airplay chart by a solo artist. The song is also the second longest running overall single on that chart, tying with No Doubt's "Don't Speak" (1996) and behind Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris", which spent eighteen weeks at number-one in 1998. [9]
  • "We Belong Together" officially became the song with the most measured impressions on American radio when it reached 192.3 million listeners and over 23,000 spins in the week ending June 7, 2005. In the following weeks, the single continued to break its own record as it peaked at 195.8 million, 202.1 million, 212.2 million, and 223 million impressions. It is the first song in history to break the 200 million one-week BDS audience barrier. Radio impressions are a rough measurement, formulated by taking the Arbitron-rated listening audience, and multiplying that number by the amount of times a given song is played.
  • "We Belong Together" has recorded the best-ever one day listener figure after it registered with 32.8 million listeners on American radio in a single day. (Unlike TV ratings, this figure does not represent 32.8 million separate people; BDS impressions are a rough estimate of the number of times a song was heard by anyone, without factoring for possible multiple hearings per person.)
  • Carey is the artist with most weeks at number one on the Hot 100 Airplay charts with a total of 89 weeks. It must be noted that the Hot 100 Airplay chart was first published in the Dec. 8, 1990 issue of Billboard. That means that Mariah Carey's "Vision of Love" never appeared on this tally, because it was a hit before the chart existed. The chart's first No. 1 was "Love Takes Time," which would have had two more weeks at No. 1 had the chart been published earlier. The only other artist with 50 or more weeks at number one is Boyz II Men with 50 weeks.

Other Billboard accomplishments

  • In 1999, Carey was named The Most Successful Pop Artist of the Decade and The Most Successful R&B/Hip-Hop Artist of the Decade by Billboard Magazine [10],[11]. "One Sweet Day" was also deemed the #1 song of the decade, based on its longest-ever run atop the Hot 100 chart. [12]
  • Carey has topped the most individual Billboard charts in history with twenty-six charts. She has had at least one number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100, Hot 100 Airplay, Hot 100 Singles Sales, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales, the Pop 100, the Pop 100 Airplay, Hot Dance Music/Club Play, Hot Dance Singles Sales, Dance Radio Airplay, Mainstream Top 40, Rhythmic Top 40, Adult Contemporary, Adult Top 40, Adult R&B, Hot Ringtones, Hot Videoclips, Hot 100 Singles Recurrent, Hot 100 Recurrent Airplay, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Recurrent, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Recurrent Airplay, Adult Contemporary Recurrents, Top 40 Adult Recurrents, Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles, and Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles. As the names suggest, many of these charts first appeared in Billboard in the 1990s or 2000s.
  • "We Belong Together" held the record for topping the most Billboard charts simultaneously, when it occupied the top position on nine charts on the week ending August 6, 2005 but was later topped by Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable" when it simultaneously went to #1 on twelve different charts on the week ending December 30, 2006. . It went to number one on The Billboard Hot 100, the Hot 100 Airplay, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Pop 100 Airplay, the Mainstream Top 40, Rhythmic Top 40, Hot Dance Music/Club Play, and the Hot Ringtones. The week before, it broke its own record of topping eight Billboard charts. However, it must be noted that the subdivision of Billboard charts has greatly increased over the years, and thus the multiple charts did not exist in decades past. [13]
  • "We Belong Together" was also the song to top the most Billboard charts in history —it had occupied the pole position on thirteen charts altogether but in 2006 Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable" topped 14 charts altogether.
