With "We Belong Together" notching a remarkable 14th non-consecutive week at No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100 and "Shake It Off" jumping 4-2 on the main singles chart, Mariah Carey becomes just one of six acts to hold the top two positions on the Hot 100 since the chart's inception in 1958. The feat puts her in the company of Usher, OutKast, Nelly, the Bee Gees and the Beatles.
Nelly's "Dilemma," which has been No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the past nine weeks, is now the U.K.'s favorite single too. The Universal release, which features Destiny's Child's Kelly Rowland, went straight to the top of the U.K. singles chart yesterday (Oct. 21), unseating Spanish trio Las Ketchup's "The Ketchup Song (Asereje)" (Columbia).
