Mary is the only artist who's in the Top 5 twice...Another record.

The only reason why Alicia Keys broke Mary's record is because according to Billboards Dec. 2006 (Pg. 36) issue, all retailers reported that "The Breakthrough" was sold out on every shelf & they had a shortage.


Praise Mary Allah Blige!
