Master List: Female Artists in the Top 10 This Decade

Featured Posts

DiscoHeaven23

I finished! I shared that I was making this and now it's done. I posted it to my rarely used Twitter so that I could share it here. Here is all the females that have charted in the top 10 in the US this decade. It's broken down between years and whether it's a feature or not. I followed Billboard years, so they start in mid-November of the previous year. 

 

I also followed how Billboard credits the artist.

A lead can be:   the artist solo, the artist as a solo artist with a feature, the artist's name next to "&" (i.e. will.iam & Britney Spears), "x", "vs", 

Some songs had remixes with an artist added. If that remix version with the other singer sold/streamed more than the original version then the singer/rapper was credited on the song too (i.e. Britney got credit for Rihanna's S&M too, as did Kesha and Nicki for Britney's "Til The World Ends")

 

"L" is the lead category

"F" is the feature category

So the lead females this decade would be Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga?

Lady Gaga is a legend and you will deal with it

Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and Kesha above Gaga is a DISGRACE :triggered: Gaga really needs more dance pop hits...

Awesome work by the way, very detailed :golfclap:

I wonder what it’s like for Canada because DWUW had a couple of weeks in the top 10, and now Shallow is still top 10 since like 13 weeks (but PI and MR never hit top 10 here, unlike in the US)
