bigted Posted December 24, 2005 Report Share Posted December 24, 2005 Mariah Carey Ties Elvis on Singles Chart NEW YORK - Mariah Carey's "Don't Forget About Us" rose to the top of Billboard's Hot 100 chart, putting her in a tie with Elvis Presley for second place among artists with the most No. 1 singles in the rock era. Carey and Presley have 17 No. 1 hits, second only to the Beatles, who had 20. (Some music sources report Presley had 18 No. 1 hits by counting the double-sided single "Don't Be Cruel" and "Hound Dog" as two hits instead of one.) "Don't Forget About Us" was Carey's second No. 1 song this year, following her ballad "We Belong Together." Both tunes are from her Grammy-nominated album, "The Emancipation of Mimi." It has taken Carey just over 15 years to accumulate the 17 hit singles. Her first was "Vision of Love" in 1990. "Don't Forget About Us," which ranked second last week, overtook Chris Brown's "Run It!" - which fell to No. 2 after five weeks at the top, Billboard said Thursday.
