Fun performer fact:
· Not only does Mariah Carey boast the most Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s ? 18 ? of any solo artist in the chart’s 56-year history, she also has the longest-running No. 1 single in Hot 100 history, “One Sweet Day” (16 weeks at No. 1!). In addition, she’s earned 17 top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart (six of which reached No. 1), 17 No. 1 Dance Club Songs and 10 No. 1 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

The best-selling female album artist, according to Nielsen Music, Mariah Carey has scored 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits. Epic Records and Carey have compiled those hits and new single ‘Infinity,’ into Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity, arriving in stores May 18th. For the first time ever, one career-spanning chronological collection will gather all 18 of her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. Included as the final track on the collection is Mariah’s breathtaking new single, “Infinity” (co-written and produced by Carey). Carey’s headlining residency in Las Vegas, ?MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY,? will kick-off on May 6th. For the first time ever, Carey will perform all 18 of her No. 1 hits in one production, designed exclusively for the Colosseum, at Caesars Palace.
