Madonna, Mariah Surpass Elvis on Billboard Charts


It's a new era of rock, folks. Billboard reports today that singles by Mariah Carey and Madonna have broken chart records previously held by Elvis Presley.

As expected, Mariah Carey moves past Elvis Presley and into sole possession of second place for most No. 1s in the rock era, as "Touch My Body" soars 15-1 on the Billboard Hot 100 to become her 18th chart-topper.

Presley will also be nudged from his standing as the artist with the most top 10s in the rock era, as Madonna surpasses him with her 37th top 10, "4 Minutes."

Billboard also points out that digital downloads are helping the singing divas: "'Body's' blast to No. 1 is fueled by a record-setting debut week digital tally of 286,000 downloads," and "Madonna's Hot 100 jump is spurred by stupendous download sales."

What do you think about these singles? You can listen to "4 Minutes" here and "Touch My Body" here (where you can also watch the funny video). Are they worth all the appreciation?

Neither song is that great. In my opinion, 4 Minutes is 2 minutes too long.

I haven't heard 'Touch My Body' so I can't comment on that track. As far as '4 Minutes...' is concerned, well the song isn't legendary by any means but it serves its purpose well. It's an entertaining club banger that many people might enjoy dancing to. That appears to be the kind of music that garners chart success these days, so why not! Good for Madonna.

"Touch My Body" is NOT worth the appreciation. It is the dumbest song I have heard in a long while and don't think it deserves to be a #1 single AT ALL.
