Mariah notches her 20th career Rhythmic top 10 as â€œBye Byeâ€ 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 chartâ€™s all-time best top 10 total.
The format icon claimed her first top 10 (and first of seven No. 1s) with â€œDreamlover.â€ Of the acts with at least 10 top 10s at the format, only Janet and R. Kelly have had head starts over Carey. Before â€œDreamloverâ€ 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 â€œThatâ€™s the Way Love Goesâ€ in May 1993. -Radio & Records
