Mariah Carey’s 20 Biggest Hot 100 Hits Counted Down, On the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast

Plus, "Caution" reviews, chart chat & more.

Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what’s on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.

This week, Gary and Trevor shine the spotlight on one of the most historically accomplished artists on Billboard charts, Mariah Carey, and count down her top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hits (employing the same chart-based formula as used on Billboard‘s recent recap of the Hot 100’s top 600 hits of the chart’s first 60 years). Among her classics on her best-of tally: “Vision of Love,” “Dreamlover,” “Hero,” “Fantasy” and “We Belong Together.”

Gary and Trevor (and a few guest Carey fan/experts) also cover Carey’s debut at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top R&B Albums and No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with her new album, Caution. Plus, chart chat about Ariana Grande, who rules the Hot 100 for a third week with “Thank U, Next,” and more.
