It’s no secret that here at THE 97, we love us some Mariah Carey. Over the years, we’ve written plenty about her music. Here, we’ve collected all of our in-depth articles about all 19 of Mariah Carey’s #1’s for your reading pleasure.

Spanning thirty-plus years, from her very first #1 in 1990 (“Vision of Love”) to her most recent #1 (“All I Want For Christmas is You”) in 2019, Mariah Carey’s #1’s total (19) is the highest of any solo artist, and second only to The Beatles overall. As a songwriter and producer, she ranks as the #1 and only woman in the top 5 of both categories. She was the first woman to debut at #1 (“Fantasy”) and has racked up 3 #1 debuts in total. With her 19th #1, she has charted #1’s in four decades: 90s, 00s, 10s and 20s. She also holds the record for most consecutive years charting a #1: eleven (1990-2000). Those are just a few of her Hot 100 achievements, but to read more about each of Mariah Carey’s #1’s, click on the song titles below.
