Beating Rihanna, Katy Perry and others...
Time has compiled a list of the pop stars who have scored top ten hits of the Billboard Hot 100 since 1960, to discover who is the top star of all time. Points were awarded by placement on the chart (ten points for #1, one point for #10). Artists are listed by name and their songs for their time in groups (like Beyonce in Destiny's Child), didn't count.
Here is the top ten by number of hits:
1. Mariah Carey (1,901 points)
2. Rihanna (1,800)
3. Usher (1,778)
4. The Beatles (1,537)
