MARIAH SURPASSES ELVIS' RECORD

Mariah Carey has passed Elvis Presley for the most No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Mariah's new hit, "Touch My Body," makes 18 No. 1 singles compared to Elvis who only had 17. Now all she has to do is make two more hits to surpass the Beatles, who are the all-time leaders with 20 No. 1 singles.

"I really can never put myself in the category of people who have not only revolutionized music but also changed the world," Carey told The Associated Press about the milestone. "That's a completely different era and time ... I'm just feeling really happy and grateful."
