Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1970) is an American pop and R&B singer-songwriter, record producer and occasional actress. Mariah Carey made her debut in 1990 under the guidance of Columbia executive Tommy Mottola and became the first recording act to have her first five singles top the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. According to Billboard magazine, she was the most successful artist of the 1990s in the U.S.
In 2000 the World Music Awards named Mariah Carey the best-selling female artist of all time, and she has recorded the most U.S. number-one singles by a female artist. In addition to her commercial accomplishments, she is well-known for her melismatic singing voice which has been noted for its range, power and technical ability. According to most sources, she has a five-octave vocal range, though some credit her with as many as eight octaves.
Mariah Carey's ninth studio album, The Emancipation of Mimi, was released in 2005 and contained collaborations with producers such as The Neptunes and Kanye West. The Emancipation of Mimi became the year's best-selling album in the U.S. and won three Grammy Awards (including "Best Contemporary R&B Album"), bringing her career total to five. The single "We Belong Together" occupied the Hot 100's number-one position for fourteen weeks (her longest run at the top as a solo artist) and was the biggest hit of 2005, with heavy radio airplay across the world. "Don't Forget About Us" became Mariah Carey's seventeenth number-one in the U.S., tying her with Elvis Presley for the most number-ones by a solo act according to Billboard magazine's revised methodology. By this count Carey is behind only The Beatles, who have twenty number-ones.
