Her album's first single, "Touch My Body," hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart and is now No. 5, putting Carey's total No. 1 hits at 18. With her latest single topping the chart, Carey has dethroned the King himself, beating Elvis Presley's long-standing record of 17 No. 1 hits.
The Beatles still claim the most No. 1 hit songs, 20 of them in all. Carey is now the only active recording artist with a realistic chance of breaking that all-time record of No. 1 hits.
