Mariah Carey named most successful singer of all time

TALENTED: Singer Mariah Carey

SINGER MARIAH Carey has been named the Most Successful Singer Of All Time by TIME Magazine.

TIME has calculated that the 45-year-old R&B star has had the longest, most consistently successful career of her peers.

According to the magazine, Carey’s continuous success in the charts and as an award-winning artist mean she gets the title ahead of all other recording artists.

The accolade commends the singer’s continuous success, despite the fact her most recent release, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, failed to make an impact in the charts, reported The Huffington Post.

While Carey has had a long and successful career, her latest album has only sold just over 100,000 copies in the UK.

During her career, Mariah has scooped five Grammy Awards and her most successful year was 2005, when she triumphed with the release of her hit singles We Belong Together and Don’t Forget About Us.

With her husband, Nick Cannon, confirming that they are living in separate homes, the singer may not be in the mood the celebrate her TIME Magazine title.

Cannon recently spoke out about the couple's divorce rumours, admitting that they have been separated for a number of months. He added that “There’s trouble in paradise”.
