Carey Celebrates Christmas On Top By Matching Elvis' Feat
The diva's DON'T FORGET ABOUT US has become her 17th US number one on the Billboard Hot 100 - matching Elvis Presley's tally to become the joint second most prolific act on the chart.
The track means Carey has become the only artist to post two number ones on the Hot 100 in 2005. Her ballad WE BELONG TOGETHER was named the biggest hit of the year earlier this week (beg19DEC05) - it stayed on top for 14 non-consecutive weeks this summer (05).
Meanwhile, Beyonce Knowles climbs high in the chart at number eight with her sixth solo top 10 hit and Oscar winner JAMIE FOXX scores the week's highest debut - his reworked version of RAY CHARLES' GEORGIA featuring Ludacris and Field Mob enters the chart at number 48.
