Mariah Carey Replaces Herself at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums Chart

Mariah Carey is making history…

The 48-year-old Half-Venezuelan American singer has become the first artist to replace herself at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart since its inception in 2012.

Mariah Carey

The diva’s Merry Christmas leaps 4-1 on the ranking dated December 8 and deposes her own LP, Caution, which slips 1-8 in its second week.

Merry Christmas, released in 1994, earned 24,000 equivalent album units in the week ending November 29, according to Nielsen Music, while Caution netted 14,000 units sold.

As MerryChristmas ascends, Carey collects her third leader on the chart, following Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse, a one-week champ in 2014 and Caution.

In addition to its Top R&B Albums coronation, Merry Christmas also rallies 24-9 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and 50-19 on the Billboard 200.

Nearly 25 years after its debut, Merry Christmas consistently remains one of the top performing holiday albums each year, with its success largely traceable to “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” virtually a modern standard in the holiday catalog.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” also makes its annual return to several Billboard charts, including a 29-14 surge on the Billboard Hot 100 and a 30-8 roar on Streaming Songs. The tune also inaugurates this year’s first edition of the seasonal Holiday 100 chart in a familiar spot — No. 1 — for its 31st week overall.

Cabello’s latest No. 1 on the Billboard chart coincides with the song’s ascent to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

“Havana,” featuring Young Thug, scores 44.9 million streams in the week ending January 18, a boost of 34 percent compared to the previous week, according to Nielsen Music.

It becomes both Cabello and Young Thug’s first No. 1 on the chart. Previously, Cabello rose as high as No. 11 (“Bad Things,” with Machine Gun Kelly, in February 2017), while Young Thug reached No. 4 as part of Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle” (November 2014).

“Havana” also makes gains on the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart, shooting 7-2 with 15.5 million on-demand audio streams (Post Malone’s “Rockstar” remains No. 1 with 16.8 million). The rise marks Cabello’s first top five on the chart and Young Thug’s second (he was featured on Drake’s “Sacrifices,” which reached No. 5 in April 2017).

Cabello ends up landing two songs in the top 10 of On-Demand Streaming Songs, as “Never Be the Same,” the album’s follow-up single to “Havana,” leaps 46-7 and is the chart’s greatest gainer. It racks up 12.8 million on-demand audio streams, up 102 percent.

The streaming increases are due to the release of Cabello’s debut solo album, Camila, which concurrently rules the Billboard 200 with 119,000 equivalent album units earned.

Camila Cabello is the artist of the moment in another special first…

The 20-year-old Cuban and Mexican singer and former Fifth Harmony member jumps from No. 12 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated January 27) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for the first time.

Camila Cabello

But that’s not all…

Cabello becomes the first female artist to triple up atop the Artist 100, Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and Billboard 200 albums chart simultaneously since Adele just over two years ago. And she’s the first Latino to do sho.

She’s the first artist overall to earn the honor since Kendrick Lamar last May.

The Artist 100, which launched in July 2014, measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.

Cabello’s Artist 100 coronation is powered by her debut album Camila, which arrives atop the Billboard 200 with 119,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music, and its single “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, which rises 2-1 on the Hot 100 in its 23rd chart week.

“Havana” gains 34 percent to 44.9 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 18 and takes over at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart. The track also surges by 52 percent to 80,000 downloads sold and sports 131 million in all-format airplay audience. Album sales contribute the majority of Cabello’s Artist 100 points (52 percent), followed by digital song sales (20 percent).

Lamar last led the Artist 100, Hot 100 and Billboard 200 in the same week on charts dated May 6, topping the latter two tallies with “Humble.” and DAMN., respectively.

Before Cabello, Adele was the last such female triple threat, leading the Hot 100 with “Hello” and the Billboard 200 with 25 on Jan. 16, 2016.

Since the Artist 100’s inception, seven acts have ruled all three Billboard charts simultaneously:

Artists to Top the Hot 100, Billboard 200 & Artist 100 Simultaneously
Artist, Weeks
Drake, 10
Taylor Swift, 7
Adele, 6
Ed Sheeran, 2
The Weeknd, 2
Camila Cabello, 1
Kendrick Lamar, 1
