Mariah Carey is loved by the queens, but she's the new king of pop, as
of today. Her first single off her new album Touch My Body just hit
number one on Billboard, which is her eighteenth single to go number
one. It's a result of 286,000 downloads in just one week.

Mimi's not the only one beating the King these days. Madonna is
surpassing him with 4 Minutes To Save The World as the artist with the
most songs in the top tens. That song got 217,000 downloads. This is
the first time since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking digital sales in
2003 that two titles debut simultaneously on Hot Digital Songs with
more than 200,000 downloads each. Nice work ladies!
