Carey Overjoyed At Chart Record

MARIAH CAREY is ecstatic she's now the most popular female artist in the history of the US singles charts after scoring her 16th number one.

Carey's WE BELONG TOGETHER toppled GWEN STEFANI's HOLLA BACK GIRL from the BILLBOARD Hot 100 this week (begs23MAY05).

Only THE BEATLES, with 20 number ones, and ELVIS PRESLEY, with 18, can boast more Billboard chart-toppers than Carey.

But the new record has left Carey feeling blessed, even if the news has yet to sink in properly.

She says, "It's incredible. You know what? That just doesn't even seem like reality, because I just do what I do.

"I'm just really thankful that people are responding to this record the way people are responding to it because I put so much into it, just my whole heart.

"And I'm just thankful that this whole thing is an enormous blessing and I'm just grateful to God for everything.
