Mariah Carey Beats Elvis Chart Record

Five time Grmmy winning singer Mariah Carey has just broken Elvis Presley chart record of 17 US number one singles, with her latest single "Touch My Body".

Her 18th number one taken from her new album E=MC2 is currently number one in the Billboard Hot 100 and download chart.

Only The Beatles have achieved more US number ones, with a score of 20.

Speaking to AP News Carey said she didn't see herself as being fairly compared to artists such as Presley or the Fabs. She said: "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."

She also said that trying to set sales records was not a priority, saying: "I've gone through enough of my life worrying about that kind of thing".
