"Time" magazine has named Mariah Carey the "ultimate pop star" of the past 70 years.  

 

The publication has researched and created an infographic based on the chart success of over 50 artists since 1960.  

 

After crunching the numbers, "Time" finds that, statistically, Mariah is the most dependable bet when it comes to producing a sure-fire hit.  

 

Rihanna is runner-up as the "ultimate pop star," and the top five is rounded out by Usher, the Beatles and Madonna.
