Rihanna, Britney, Katy Or P!nk? Who Is Billboard’s Top Songs Artist On The Past 20 Years?

The top Billboard artists of the past twenty years were all females; Rihanna, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and P!nk. But only one was the number one top pop artist.  Who was it?

Rihanna is the number 1 top pop artist of the past 20 years charting 34 times. That is 21 top ten hits and 9 number one songs. Katy Perry has 9 number one songs herself in the past 5 years, tying Rihanna for most number ones.

Rihanna debuted in 2005, 7 years after Britney and P!nk respectively. Britney charted at number 2 and P!nk at number 3.  The Billboard Charts still matter right?  My check from them hasn't arrived in the mail yet so I can still be critical.

Rihanna tweeted the news to her 26 million twitter followers: "Billboard crowned me #1 Top 40 artist of the decade just [seven] years into this!! My fans just majorly shat on ur existence."

Er, shat on who? Was going to say congrats but I think that tweet did it for me.-DocFB

Diagnosis: I want to thank my twitter followers for making me the 769th most popular blog on the Net. Perez's fans just shat on our existence.
