Mariah: Most Successful Female Artist of All Time

 

26 May 2005

Singer Mariah Carey is the most successful female artist of all time after her new single 'We Belong Together' became her 16th US #1 single.

The two other artists topping Mariah on the overall list are The Beatles (with 20 #1s) and Elvis Presley (with 18 #1s).

A spokesperson for Mariah's record label Island Def Jam said: "Mariah Carey's energy and enthusiasm is at an all-time high, and (her album "The Emancipation of Mimi") is on the verge of becoming one of the most successful albums of her career as a result.

"It is with a combination of pride and awe that I congratulate Mariah on accomplishing what no other female in modern pop history has been able to do - no one is more deserving than Mariah Carey of sharing the pantheon with the greatest of the greats."
