Pop diva Mariah Carey, who’s co-written 18 of her record 19 Number One hits, is going into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The only hit she did not write was a cover of The Jackson 5’s ”I’ll Be There.”
Carey trails only the The Beatles, who had 20 songs top the chart.
The 25-year-old holiday staple ”All I Want for Christmas Is You,” reached Number One in December and January, making Carey the only artist to have a chart topper in the ’90s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.
