Mariah Tops Elvis Record  


Mariah Carey has scored her 18th number one single in the U.S. with her new song "Touch My Body".

The hot single has topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, beating out Elvis Presley's previous record by putting her one ahead of the late music legend.

Mariah is now only second to The Beatles, who scored an impressive 20 number one U.S. singles during their career.

The diva was quick to put her achievement into perspective, saying: "I really can never put myself in the category of people who have not only revolutionised music but also changed the world. That's a completely different era and time. I'm just feeling really happy and grateful."

She added: "For me, in my mind the accomplishment is just that much sweeter. In terms of my ethnicity, always feeling like an outsider, always feeling different, for me it's about saying, 'Thank you Lord, for giving me the faith to believe in myself when other people had written me off.' "

Watch out for Mariah's upcoming album 'E=MC2', which will be released in the UK on April 14th and in the U.S. a day later.
