Mariah Carey and Madonna Storm the Pop Music Record Books

When the charts are officially published tomorrow, this week will go down as a record-setting week in pop music history. As expected, the new #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 will be Mariah Carey's 18th chart-topping smash "Touch My Body." The feat will break a tie with Elvis Presley and put her in 2nd place on the all-time list for the most #1 hits. Only the Beatles will remain ahead of Carey. They have a total of 20 #1 songs to their credit.

In an effort to avoid being outdone, Madonna simply broke a tie this week with Elvis Presley that puts her at the pinnacle of the list of artists with the most top 10 hits to their credit. The single "4 Minutes," which also features Justin Timberlake, soars to #3 this week giving Madonna her 37th trip to the top 10. This gives her the title of the artist with the most top 10 hits in the rock era according to Billboard. For the record, Madonna has a mere 12 #1's to her credit.
