mj- no.

mads- easily.

not really a rihanna fan, but it's not like madonna is mozart or some shit. she just made easily accessible bumblegum pop and wasn't all that great of a singer honestly. not like a mariah carey or whitney houston level talent.

Basically. Madonna and Rihanna are just sex symbols who get handed pop songs to sing as a formality. They're marketed to women as heroines of sexual independence, and to men as pieces of meat to oggle in videos .

It's the only reason they've sold anything, and I'm not sure what kenny's point it supposed to be about the artists on this list.

She’s only been out for 12 years. She can end up with double this amount.

Collabs and cameos shouldn't count.

McCartney shouldn't be #1 and I'm sure Rihanna's # tanks if you take away collabs.

I couldn't name that many #1 hits by these artists for solo songs if my life depended on it.

edit: wtf, the article says top 10s, not #1's... that makes way more sense. What's wrong with you, OP?

Axl Rose and Mariah Carey are on a completely different level than everyone else. Their vocal range is wider than anyone in history.

Axl Rose has a larger vocal range than Mariah Carey

whether that's true or not .. I never even thought his singing voice was on that level

Springsteen and CCR are better than most of that list and they never had a single #1 hit

Definitely would not pull out of young Mariah. Fantasy was one of the greatest songs of the 90s by far. Top 5 for sure.
