Rap mogul Jay-Z and producer ANTONIO 'LA' REID have teamed up to pay tribute to Mariah Carey in America's music and film trade papers.

The Def Jam record company officials have paid for a series of full-page ads to congratulate Carey for becoming the most successful female in US chart history.

The singer made history last week (ends27MAY05) when she scored her 16th number one.
