Add 14 No. 1 singles to the picture, and it gets even clearer why Mariah Carey was named Artist of the Decade by Billboard.

While Mariah Carey has continued her success into the new millenium—a run that will likely continue with her most recent release, Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse—the '90s were a career-defining decade for the songbird supreme that we'll never forget, and neither should you.
