Mariah Carey has tallied plenty of chart-topping hits in her career. Now, she's inspiring them.

The superstar helped pop quintet Fifth Harmony rocket to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 on Wednesday (Feb. 4), when she tweeted an appreciation of the group's song "Like Mariah." Carey's approval didn't slip under the radar: Hours later, two of the group's members, Normani Kordei and Ally Brooke Hernandez, responded separately to the tweet, expressing their gratitude for the acknowledgment.

The track, which features Tyga, finds the quintet reveling in ecstasy, crooning, "When you touch my body/ Got me singing like Mariah." In addition to the call-out of Carey's "Touch My Body," the tune's chorus samples one of the diva's most enduring hits, "Always Be My Baby." Both "Body" and "Baby" reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming two of Carey's 18 leaders on the list, the most among solo artists.

"Mariah" (and Mariah) help Fifth Harmony score a hat trick of Trending 140 chart leaders from their debut album, Reflection, following the reigns of "Bo$$" and "Sledgehammer" in 2014. Reflection was released Jan. 30.
