50 Surprising Acts Without a #1 Hit

The Billboard Hot 100 had FOUR new Top 10 entries this week:  “No Tears Left to Cry” by Ariana Grande, plus “ATM”“Kevin’s Heart”, and “KOD” by J. Cole.

That’s interesting, because Ariana and J. Cole have yet to reach #1, so there’s a chance that their time could be coming soon.  Up until this point, Ariana has maxed out at #2, while J. Cole’s peak is #6, so he’s yet to crack the Top Five.

Here are EIGHT other surprising artists who have yet to hit #1:

1.  Nicki Minaj.  She peaked at #2

2.  Selena Gomez.  She peaked at #5.

3.  Twenty One Pilots.  They peaked at #2.

4.  Future.  He peaked at #5.

5.  Zedd.  He peaked at #4.

6.  Shawn Mendes.  He peaked at #4.

7.  Imagine Dragons.  They peaked at #3.

8.  Florida Georgia Line.  They just reached #2 with their Bebe Rexha collaboration, “Meant to Be”.

Those come from a Billboard.com story focusing on today’s biggest pop stars.

So, we did some digging and put together a rundown of 40 (somewhat surprising) OLDER acts without a #1 hit.  They are:

One Direction, Bruce Springsteen, Backstreet Boys, Missy Elliott, David Guetta, James Brown, Don Henley, Chaka Khan, Black Sabbath, Creedence Clearwater Revival, En Vogue, Bob Dylan, Babyface .

Sheryl Crow, MC Hammer, Pat Benatar, New Edition, The Pointer Sisters, AC/DC, The Clash, Green Day, Jimi Hendrix, Journey, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Metallica, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Sting, Tom Petty . . .

The Who, Bob Marley, KISS, the Beastie Boys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, R.E.M., Johnny Cash, the Kinks, Dolly Parton, and David Hasselhoff.

    10am - 2pm | I am the resident radio geek here at BOB. I live, breathe, and eat radio. However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for a local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
