HOLLA – Mariah scores 18th #1

Once defeated by a breakdown, a movie flop and record flop (that still sold millions worldwide), Mariah Carey has now passed legend Elvis Presley in #1 songs. She tied Elvis with 17 #1 songs with “Don’t Forget About Us” and now, with “Touch My Body”, Mariah has scored her 18th #1 song!

“Touch My Body” has also set the record for most digital sales in a debut week. The song sold 286,000 copies. Beating out Rihanna’s “Umbrella” release which sold 277,000 the first week. 

Mariah has also surpassed Barry Gibb to take 3rd place in songwriting. Paul McCartney and John Lennon are the only two people to have written more number 1 songs.

E=MC2 has not even been released. Could this album push Mariah past the beatles?! Good job MC.
