Carey's total U.S. album sales stand at 64.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan, which began tracking album sales a year after her arrival. In that span, only Garth Brooks (68.4 million) and the Beatles (60.9 million) rank higher. Carey has six No. 1 Billboard 200 titles, including her best selling album, 1995's "Daydream" (7.6 million). "Daydream" also yielded the 16-week Hot 100 No. 1 "One Sweet Day," with Boyz II Men, marking the chart's longest reign. The ballad subsequently earned the honor of Billboard's top song of the '90s. Carey's 2005 14-week Hot 100 No. 1 "We Belong Together" likewise became the chart's top title of the 2000s.
