The Chart Don't Lie: Mariah's Tied With Elvis
Get excited! Mimi's done nothing short of the following this week:
* Become the only artist to have two #1 singles in 2005
* Tied with Elvis Presley for having 17 #1 singles (trailing only behind The Beatles, who have 20)
* Managed to have the final #1 of the year (the new chart is technically for the week ending December 31st) with "Don't Forget About Us"
And, really, who could forget the bulging, stretched-to-the-brink diva after this year? She was everywhere: Oprah, Live 8, The American Music Awards, the looney bin... and let's not forget at #1 for a grand total of 15 weeks between this week and the 14 "We Belong Together" had at the top all summer.
You've officially had your comeback, Mimi. Now hit the road.
