Carey Gets 'Bye' With Her 20th Top 10

< > Mariah notches her 20th career Rhythmic top 10 as “Bye Bye” rises 11-9, extending her record among females; runner-up Janet has tallied 15 top 10s. Carey also moves within one of Ludacris for the chart’s all-time best top 10 total.

The format icon claimed her first top 10 (and first of seven No. 1s) with “Dreamlover.” Of the acts with at least 10 top 10s at the format, only Janet and R. Kelly have had head starts over Carey. Before “Dreamlover” bowed in August 1993, R. Kelly launched with Public Announcement on the premier Nielsen BDS-fed Rhythmic chart dated Oct. 3, 1992, while Janet first appeared with “That’s the Way Love Goes” in May 1993.
