'Obsessed' with 'Love' Mariah on the BB Charts

< >

Billboard's Chart Beat: Mariah Carey passes Kristine W for third-most No. 1s in the history of Dance/Club Play Songs, as "Obsessed" rises 2-1. The song is Carey's 15th leader on the list.

The artists with the most toppers on the chart now stand as Madonna (40), whose "Celebration" retreats 1-4, Janet Jackson (18), Carey (15) and Kristine W (14).

Carey concurrently debuts on Adult Contemporary at No. 21 with her remake of Foreigner's 1985 No. 3 hit on the chart, "I Want to Know What Love Is." The start ties for her second-best at the format, topped only by a No. 17 launch for "Dreamlover" in 1993. Another cover of an '80s smash, Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' "Endless Love," updated by Carey with Luther Vandross in 1994, also began at No. 21.
