Mariah Carey's Top 40 Biggest Billboard Hot 100 Hits
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... t-100-hits
3/27/2018 by Kristin Corpuz , Xander Zellner

A recap of the superstar's top-charting songs dating to her 1990 debut.

With 18 No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100, Mariah Carey holds the record for the most leaders on the list of any solo artist, second overall only to The Beatles (who hold the record with 20). Notably, she landed a No. 1 every year from 1990 through 2000, while her duet with Boyz II Men, "One Sweet Day," is tied with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, for the most weeks at No. 1: 16 (starting Dec. 2, 1995).

Meanwhile, her holiday classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You" finally hit the Hot 100's top 10 in 2017, 23 years after its 1994 release, becoming her 28th top 10.

Carey has additionally landed 17 top 10 albums on the Billboard 200, with six hitting No. 1. Her self-titled 1990 debut LP ruled the list the longest of her leaders, for 11 weeks, beginning March 2, 1991.

And, of her 34 Grammy Award nominations, Carey has taken home five trophies, including the 1991 award for best new artist. She is credited as a trailblazer for numerous female vocalists, with artists like Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and more having cited her as an inspiration.

Here is a look at Carey's top-performing hits on the Hot 100.

Mariah Carey's Top 40 Biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100, through the March 31, 2018, ranking. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.

Mariah was at the top with Daydream.

IDK why she refers to TEOM as her biggest era of her career.

Music Box and Debut weren't any less successful with MASSIVE (and a multitude) of HITS.

Where are these updated estimated sales that @chartdata is referring to coming from? Or, is it merely a regurgitation of what we already know from long ago?

That certification is for sales since 2004, so it's near 380k now

That's not how it works...

Digital sales are counted from 2004 onwards, but it doesn't mean all songs started from 0 in 2004 and all certifications given mean that song has sold that amount since 2004.

As an example, Spice Girls' "2 become 1" was awarded 2xPlatinum a few weeks ago for 1.2 million copies.
Obviously it has not sold 1.2 million copies since 2004. It sold around 1 million CD singles back then... and the rest is downloads and streams till now.
Or Take That's "Never Forget", that was awarded Platinum this week for 600k copies. It was certified Gold back in 1995... and it has sold another 200k singles, downloads and streaming equivalent units since then. Not 600k copies since 2004.

So "My All" has just reached 200k overall. Physicals, downloads and streaming combined.

It is still so odd to me that Music Box's 5xP certification comes from 1994. I mean has the album really never added another 300k since 1994?

What about 1995? 1996? Daydream was a hit album too, one would assume that people also still bought Music Box in 1995.

Hey, that's around 1.4m albums sold! Has she now crossed the 150m albums sold mark yet? :roll: :roll: :roll:

How many records has she sold WW?
How does she stand against today's monsters like Rihanna, Beyonce (with DC), and Katy Perry?
Certainly, Rihanna's total would be more, but just how much more?

What about 1995? 1996? Daydream was a hit album too, one would assume that people also still bought Music Box in 1995.
It was certified 5xPlat in October 1994. But remember certifications were based mostly on shipments back then... So it doesn't necessarily mean that it had really sold 1.5 million by then.
Music Box charted 22 more weeks in Top 100 after that certification:
13 more weeks in 1994. (Oct-Year End),
8 weeks in 1995 (till the end of February).
It only returned once to the Top 100 (at #100) in February 1996.

Don't know about weeks in Top 200.

Unless it was overshipped when it was certified 5xPlat and sales were less than that, it should reach 6xPlatinum thanks to catalog sales, downloads and streams any time soon.
