Carey first topped the chart on her first try, with “Someday” back in 1991.

She tallied her most recent chart-topper with her last charted title, “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” in October 2012.

“Mine” reached the Dance Club Songs summit with a little help from remixers Fedde Le Grand, Chus and Ceballos, Gregor Salto and Funkin Matt, and Riddler, among others.

The new leader previews Carey’s forthcoming first studio album in five years.

Carey, the soloist with the most No. 1s (18) in the Billboard Hot 100‘s history, says in the current Billboard cover story that she “wanted [the new set] to be something I could be proud of, whether it’s like, ‘Yay, No. 1 song!,’ and this and that. However things end up happening, we’ve all worked so hard. The true lambily [her family of hardcore fans] have all worked so hard to break all these Billboard records, and to have this incredible experience with me, that I want them to have this almost as a gift.”

Dating to the Dance Club Songs chart’s Aug. 28, 1976, inception as a national survey, Carey moves up among the artists with the most No. 1s.
