Mariah Carey named the ultimate pop star by Time infographic

By
Mariah Carey has been named the ultimate pop star by Time.

The music publication looked at every song from the Billboard top 10 since 1960, the number of hits by each artist on the list and how long their careers have lasted. Each artist was then given a ranking and the results placed in an infographic.

Carey came out on top ahead of Rihanna in second place and Usher in third.

Usher had the best single year, achieved by having five songs in the top 10 for a combined 88 weeks in 2004.

The infographic also reveals that Madonna (5th), Michael Jackson (8th) and Stevie Wonder (12th) have had sustained success in their careers, while The Beatles (4th) were incredibly popular in their early years.

Miley Cyrus made the list by placing 50th, just behind Taylor Swift and Britney Spears.

The entire table can be viewed at Time.com.

Carey is currently living apart from husband Nick Cannon, as the pair are said to be experiencing marriage problems.
