Hip-Hop Tops Billboard’s One Hit Wonder List
While other entities are naming the top albums of the decade, Billboard, the premier music chart publication, is placing Fat Joe’s Terror Squad and rapper Mims near the top of a list of their own.
The two MCs are getting recognition today however for a less than stellar accomplishment, outranking all of Hip-Hop on Billboard’s list of top one hit wonders of the decade.
Joey Crack’s Terror Squad lineage came in at a crippling #2 on the list of one hit wonders for their 2004 hit “Lean Back.” Coming in at a close fourth place is Mims whose 2007“This is Why I’m Hot” was a hot track that fizzled and died soon after.
Atlanta’s resident snap and roll home team of D4L came in at #5 for “Laffy Taffy,” while Cee-Lo’s Gnarls Barkley super duo came in at #7 for “Crazy.”
Here’s the complete list of one hit wonders in Hip-Hop:
J-Kwon Tipsy #11
Lil Romeo-My baby #14
Youngbloodz and Lil Jon- Damn #18
Cassidy/R. Kelly- Hotel #21
Rich Boy-Throw Some Ds #27
Hurricane Chris- A Bay Bay #30
Jibbs- Chaing Hang Low #31
Young Dro/T.I. Shoulder Lean #39
Hurricane Chris is definitely not a one hit wonder, neither is Cassidy or The YoungBloodz. We’ll give Rich Boy a pass too because he probably has more Zone 4 hits to come.
There were spot on with Jibbs and J-Kwon though!
