Mariah Carey Named #1 Female Solo Artist Of All Time

Look, when it comes to legends, FEW artists have stood the test of time like our QUEEN Mariah Carey.

Now, all her hard work has paid off as Billboard just announced she is the top female solo artist of ALL TIME.

As a Mariah stan, I am not surprised.

Mariah's career spans over four *glorious* decades, and we don't see it stopping anytime soon.

We can never get enough Mimi!

When speaking with Billboard, Mariah was clearly shook.

"Oh, my God. To see the success on all the different charts, to hear you say that is mind-blowing," she admitted.

"I never, ever dreamt of this when I first started," she continued.

"I just wanted to hear my songs on the radio."

"Songwriting and producing, being in the studio, that is my favorite thing on earth," she continued.

She also knows how important her Christmas music is to everyone.

"When I look back on the songs that I’ve written that have become part of people’s lives, that’s what makes me the most proud. 'All I Want for Christmas Is You,' the constant presence at Christmastime -- to feel that as someone who loves Christmas so much, I can’t even explain."

The rest of the list is iconic too, of course.

Madonna, Barbra Streisand, T-Swift, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Rih Rih, QUEEN CELINE DION, Adele, Bey, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears join Mariah in the top 12.

Considering she is the queen of Christmas, butterflies *and* whistle tones, it's no surprise Mimi reigns supreme.

Continue rocking our world, queen!
