It’s official- the original five-octave range singer will be performing and receiving the Icon Award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
Mariah Carey has been a beloved pop star legend ever since her first debut in 1990. This year, the iconic singer has been on her Caution World Tour, which she just wrapped up on April 6 while blessing her U.S. fans with her extraordinary voice. Mariah will be preparing for the second part of her tour in Europe, which will begin on May 22, 2019 at Dublin’s 3Arena. According to the singers Billboard chart history, “Carey has led the Billboard Hot 100 in each year of the 1990s, making her the only artist to top the chart in every year of any decade, and has had 18 total No. 1s on the chart, the most among any soloist.”
Here are Carey’s 18 No. 1 hits:
Someday, I Don’t Wanna Cry, Touch My Body, My All, I’ll Be There, Emotions, Heartbreaker, Thank God I Found You, Honey, Don’t Forget About Us, Vision of Love, Fantasy, Love Takes Time, One Sweet Day, Dream Lover, Hero, Always Be My Baby, and We Belong Together.
Successfully, Carey has dominated the Hot 100 chart for 79 weeks, confirming the most of any artist. Six of her albums claimed the No. 1 spot of the Billboard 200 albums chart. It’s only right that Dick Clark Productions and NBC honor Carey for the Icon Award since fans have been obsessed with her voice for years and counting. She will be joining the list of previous legendary Icon recipients Janet Jackson, Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Cher and more.
The 2019 Billboard Music Awards, hosted by Kelly Clarkson, will air live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
