The Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs (#9)
After her bizarre taping of MTV's TRL in 2001 where she infamously lost her cool, and the release of her flop film, GLITTER, Mariah Carey managed to regroup and make a comeback that would continue her trail of fifteen No. 1 songs during the earlier part of her career.
In 2005, Carey launched THE EMANCIPATION OF MIMI with her new label, Island Records, and spawned the Jermaine Dupri-produced WE BELONG TOGETHER. The track became a monster hit, occupying the No. 1 slot on the Hot 100 for fourteen weeks beginning June 5, 2005. WE BELONG TOGETHER returned to No. 1 two more times for a total of eighteen weeks in the top spot. This feat managed to get Carey's song the #9 slot in Billboard's Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs, edging out Toni Braxton's UN-BREAK MY HEART which landed the 10th spot.
Incidentally this week, the single that occupies the top post in Billboard's Pop 100 Airplay is Chris Brown's FOREVER.
