Mariah Carey's marriage may be fading, but her star is still shining bright.
TIME magazine has created a brand new Pop Star ranking metric, measuring artists' number of hits, chart placement, and longevity since 1960 - a sort of Hot 100 of the past 54 years (hey, they ARE called TIME magazine).
And it's good news for the Elusive Chanteuse, because she has beaten The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and more to come out on top as the Ultimate Pop Star!
But where did everyone else rank? See the rest of the top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
4. The Beatles
