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.

Here’s a look at the acts with the list’s most leaders:

43, Madonna

Carey made the announcement on New Year’s Eve, during her performance on New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly. The title of the track is currently unknown.

Carey has also revealed that her long-delayed album, The Art of Letting Go, will be released in the very near future.

“The album is coming this spring,” she told the audience at the event. “New single, Valentine’s Day.”

Originally slated to be released last July, the album was postponed because Carey still wanted to add some good songs.

“I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard,” she said in June.

The Art of Letting Go will include “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” which was released back in 2012, lead single “#Beautiful” which features a guest appearance from Miguel, and title track “The Art of Letting Go” which premiered on Carey’s Facebook page in November.

The 42-year-old part-Venezuelan American songstress—who could experience a massive Jennifer Lopez-like comeback in the next year now that she’ll be sitting at the judges table on Fox’s singing competition series—has released the full version of her brand new single “Triumphant (Get ‘Em).”

The track, which features Rick Ross and Meek Mill, has Carey singing positive inspiration. “Can’t fall down, stay triumphant, keep on living/ Stay on your toes/ Get off the ropes/ Don’t let ’em ever count you out/ Realize all things are possible/ In your heart who’s the greatest/ Reach for the stars, be all that you are,” she sings in the chorus.

“Working with Ross and Meek on the same record was incredible,” said Carey on a conference call Thursday. “Obviously Ross is a star and everybody loves him. I’m a fan of his music. I really, really wanted to work with him.”

She continued singing praises for both Ross and Meek, “I love the tone of his voice. I think the contrast of his voice and mine would be something special. I always like to do collaborations that people might think are different. Meek adds an excitement, a newness to the record that is pretty rare right now.”

Brian Michael Cox, who co-wrote and co-produced the single along with Carey and Jermaine Dupri, told MTV, “This song is kind of inspirational. It’s close to her heart, and I think her fans are going to really, really be emotionally attached to this song.”

Cox adds, “I expect that this record’s going to be a huge record. I expect that this is going to be one of her bigger albums.”

“Triumphant” will be featured on Carey’s upcoming album, which is still untitled.

“I’m collaborating with a lot of my favorite people but the main thing is [that] I’m not trying to follow any particular trend,” said Carey about her highly anticipated new album. “I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy.”
