Mariah Carey
Carey's single has been number one eight times
Mariah Carey has topped the US singles chart for the fourth week in a row with her single We Belong Together.

Carey's song, from her recent album The Emancipation of Mimi, has topped the US Hot 100 chart for eight weeks in all.

Carey's latest single, Shake it Off, has entered the chart as the highest debut at number 66.

Rihanna's Pon de Replay was at number two, while at number three was Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl. The Pussycat Doll's Don't Cha was at number four.

The UK's Gorillaz, led by Blur's Damon Albarn, jumped 18 places from number 43 to 25, while Natasha Bedingfield's These Words jumped from 59 to 48.

Carey notched up her 16th US number one when We Belong Together.

She now has the third highest number of chart-toppers in the US, with only the Beatles and Elvis scoring more.

The Emancipation of Mimi has sold more than two million copies in the US since it was released in April.
