Two records previously set by Elvis Presley are set to be broken this coming week after the digital release of Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" and Madonna's "4 Minutes". Both songs received enough digital downloads to make the singers take the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and the other to add another top 10 hit to her list.
First, Carey is on track to collect her 18th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart this week. In regard to the digital release of the single, Billboard stated that, "...the fresh availability of a digital download should send the song hurtling to the top next week. That will push Carey to second place among artists with the most No. 1s in the rock era. The record is held by the Beatles with 20; Carey is currently tied with Elvis Presley."
Meanwhile, Madonna's "4 Minutes" will jump into the Top 10 this week and she will beat Elvis as the artist with the most Top 10 hits in music history. It will be her 37th beating Elvis' previous set record of 36 Top 10 hits!
So many artists wish they could have a Top 10 single, and Madonna is on her way to # 37
