Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Rihanna & Miguel Sizzle On ‘Top R&B / Hip Hop Artists’ Year-End Chart

While Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke sit atop R&B’s throne with a smash hit or two pulled in the last year, Billboard’s ‘Top R&B / Hip Hop Artists’ Year-End chart goes a long way to celebrate the achievements made by a number of their competitors.

Who, you ask?

Think Nicki Minaj, think Rihanna, think Ciara and the Grammy winning singer/songwriter that is Miguel, all of whom make commendable appearances on the list.



Billboard explains:

“Ranking is based on an artist’s chart performance on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (which includes airplay, sales, and streaming data) and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, as well as Box score touring revenue, Social 50 chart activity and ringtone sales.”

  12. RICHIE_RICH January 1, 2014

    You people are stupid. Beyonce just came out 2.5 weeks ago. The irony of it all. She is still slaying the lessor 17 years into the game.

    Happy New Years to all.

  13. Navy Nick January 1, 2014

  17. Loyalty January 1, 2014

    C Squad should be worrying about why they still haven’t got Ciara that Gold plaque yet not people pressed and distressed over the Hive.

  18. Ciara is everything January 1, 2014

    I just love seeing Ciara ahead of Beyonce its refreshing, gonna be ahead of Rihanna next year watch!

  19. MuiMui January 1, 2014

    BEYONCE BEY HIVE, NOW EVERYBODY IS STUPID,R U FOR REAL,
    HIVE SHUT THE F*^& UP,PEOPLE ARE TIRE OF YOU TRYING TO HOG THE SHOW WITH YOUR PRAISE OF BEYONCE, WE KNOW SHES THE GOOSE WHO LAYED THE GOLDEN EGG, OKAY.
    IF YOU LET THE HIVE TELL IT NO OTHER MUSICIAN SHOULD BE WRITTEN ABOUT HERE,ON THIS BLOG, MY GOODNESS.
    BEYONCE NUTTY FANS ARE WHY MANY ARE SKIPPING THIS BLOG,IN THE FIRST PLACE

  20. Ciara is everything January 1, 2014

    @Loyalty Body party has a gold plaque already heading towards platinum as we speak.

  21. Loyalty January 1, 2014

    And the album? Btw shouldn’t the biggest R&B hit of the year be platinum already?

  22. Brazilian Yoncé!!! January 1, 2014

    Beyonce has a Platinum album >> Gold Lady Caca > Aluminum CIARA

  23. Career Ender January 1, 2014

    I been reading FutureCIARA’s comments lately and I’m liking the person

    I think he/she is the most sane C-squad member on TGJ

  24. Nai January 1, 2014

    The facts remain Beyonce>Ciara

    The squad doesn’t have a leg to stand on in the argument.
    Three failed albums,flop singles,flop letters,flop fansbase and nothing but excuses after excuse.
    Body Party is nowhere near 1 Million so keep dreaming.

    If I were a gaga Stan I’d be upset too. ArtPop is a flop by all standards and that’s with a Top 10. Instead of trying to trash Beyonce every post possible,how about you both start a fundraiser for the two failed albums.

    I happen to know every monster isn’t bitter and most squad members know their place.
    For some reason only on tgj we have to deal with the bitter b******.

  25. RICHIE_RICH January 1, 2014

    @muimui yes c***, some of y’all are stupid base on the comments. Don’t be mad hun where is you’re fav cause she sure isn’t #1 on any of the yr end list.

    Happy New Years @ LAX with you’re drunk A$$

  26. cierror January 1, 2014

    Good thing Beyoncé didn’t call her album Ciara, don’t want it to flop. Is Artflop platinum yet? Ill wait.

  27. ratedxxx(bad chick) January 1, 2014

    good for miss ciara and miss rihanna…rihanna doesn’t have any album out and she’s still on top of the charts..bad bish status

    nicki has grown on me..so congrats to her too…

    this is the r&b/hip hop charts..why the heck does gaga has to do with this? Lord have mercy..mental illness is real

  28. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 1, 2014

    Is the C Squad really one to talk? Umm,your fave had new music out the whole of last year and she’s only at number 24. The self drag

  29. M January 1, 2014

    You can kill that key board all u want ,just like u have been killing it for so long.Rihanna will always be that Thorn, that u bytches and Beyonce will feel from now on.

  30. ratedxxx(bad chick) January 1, 2014

    this is the reason why a lot of people cannot stand the beyonce stans…..you have to drag somebody just to make your fav seem better..thats f****** pathetic..

    if beyonce is so f****** great why the hell yall need to bash other people, who gives a s*** if people don’t like her fake ass..she is snatching imaginary wigs..

    you dumb morons cannot be happy for anybody else….

    my thing is this who give a s*** what a ciara stan has to say about beyonce, give ciara her props and keep it moving..no you b****** has to drag ciara into this like she’s the one who’s personally attacking the fake b**** yall stan for

  31. MuiMui January 1, 2014

    Its not Her fault Jayz and them trained Ri in the art of keeping u all pressed.While Beyonce dad was teaching her how to keep her short legs crossed and act lady like. Jayz them was teaching Rihanna how to deal with the Crack pipe smokers such as yourself.
    Its no wonder she don’t sweat being called all the names u call her.Its no wonder shes smiling all the way to the Bank.
    While your Fave incentive a%% is stressed and staying drunk In Love ,trying to deal with the pressures of the
    Wanting to stay on top,really bad syndrome,that is a bad Illness to have to deal with you know. What do you think would have happened if somebody like Adele had dropped a Surprise Album ,at the same time as Your Savior,who know how to turn bricks into loafs of bread,
    I am sure that would have sent Beyonce off the deep end.

    SHHHH Scre## being number One,and having big sales any time of the year,that shyt Only Benefits Jayz and Beyonce,
    BEING #1 ONLY COUNTS FOR YOUR SAVIOR AND HER HONEY.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOUR PRESSED E-BULLY’S BEHIND,HUN.

  32. Loyalty January 1, 2014

    Oh just stfu who bought Beyonces name up first.?

  33. ratedxxx(bad chick) January 1, 2014

    and the beyonce stans are getting dragged left and right on every blog..because they will attack somebody for saying they don’t like a beyonce song.. a f****** song..

    but anyway congrats to chris brown, rihanna, future, and ciara…and nicki

    I don’t even read the stans comments anymore, they are just so…it’s alright though, because the more they act a fool the more turn off people are of beyonce..so keep doing yall..ahahahahah

  34. Jamie January 1, 2014

    Yay Ciara! the hive can stay pressed.

  35. ciflop January 1, 2014

    RatedSTFU, why are you lways pointing out the Beyoncé this Beyoncé that. Why is that you hold her to a higher standard but you’re always nitpicking her. Why do you even care?

  36. Jamie January 1, 2014

    After i seen how bad the hive dragged Chili im done with them @Ratedxxx they said some horrible things about her, her son and even left eye.

  37. Loyalty January 1, 2014

    @Ciflop Rated X has a worrying obsession with Beyonce and her stans^ Shes so bothered about us its amusing lmao. Never commenting on the actual topic at hand.

  38. MuiMui January 1, 2014

    Ciara, Rihanna, Gaga,Britney, nor Chrstina and a few of their Fans has joined you Bully’s, to attack each and every Musician this site post on,why.
    You say Rihanna blah,blah,blah Yet as far as Albums go she has sold 10-Million in the US.
    That might not be good enough for most, but its good enough to get the milk churned.

  39. BEYHIVE_MINAJ January 1, 2014

    @RatedHoe B****,STFU. Why are you so pressed by the hive? You can never stick to the topic. Gtfo

  40. TinaMinaj January 1, 2014

    Prepare yourselves for some slayage from the rap empress Nicki Minaj this year!
    People still hating on Beyonce but she’s charting with no releases to speak of over the past year. The c-squad better celebrate coz that’s the only time your fave will ever be ahead of Beyonce ( or even Rihanna) when she doesn’t release anything lol

  41. Queen January 1, 2014

    CITRANNY FLOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
    BOREANNA FLOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
    QUEEN B KEEP WINNINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

  42. JOHNVIDAL January 1, 2014

    Congrats to Miguel!
    TGJ giving us partial info though, as always.

  43. MuiMui January 1, 2014

    WHAT I MEANT WAS NONE of the many Musicians have a problem with each other, yet their fans a few of them stay in attack mode, why are they feeling so threatened.
    Beyonce won Her six Grammy’s with her songs being Pop,R&B,Contemporary With them all from Halo being Pop, to SL R&B AND ALL COMING FROM A CONTEMPORARY ALBUM
    And Traditional R&B For Etta James song.

    And as far as Rihanna being r&b she is all of the genres.
    Now Beyonce has done all kinds of good with Her New Album
    and the World smiles with her and her fans, Yet you Bytches are Begrudging of these other Musicians getting some shine,WTF.

  44. GILBERTO January 1, 2014

    Beyoncé didn’t release any song in 2013 (for Billboard’s chart point of view), and she almost beat C-error ass. It’s more funny when Billboard’s Year End charts ended up BEFORE Beyoncé (album) release. LMFAO. C-error released half of her half-assed album as singles, but radio rejected them all. LOL.

  45. iconic cici January 1, 2014

    @Gilberto jealousy is a disease get help hun, Ciara is not bothered by worthless b****** like yourself

    Ciara> Thiefyonce

  46. LOL January 1, 2014

    LOL DEAD @ RIHANNA STILL SHYTTING ON FLOPONCE.
    FLOPHIVE, STOP LYING. YOUR RIPOFF QUEEN RELEASED 2 SONGS THIS YEAR. REMEMBER FLOP DOWN & FLOPPING ON THE SUN? YEAH, NOBODY ELSE REMEMBERS EITHER LMAO

  47. NAVY COMMANDER(Slaying the z-squad since 2013) January 1, 2014

    “I just love seeing Ciara ahead of Beyonce its refreshing, gonna be ahead of Rihanna next year watch!”

    THE DELUSION! YOUR LUCKY SHE EVEN MADE IT AHEAD OF BEYONCE(AND THAT WAS ONLY BECASE SHE JUST RELEASED THE ALBUM). YOU NEED TO HAVE A LOOK AT “Ciara” ALBUM SALES AND THEN RETHINK THAT STATEMENT.

  48. NAVY COMMANDER January 1, 2014

    And YASS at the queen slaying heauxs who released a 2013 album with an album from 2012.

  49. FutureCIARA January 1, 2014

    @Iconic Cici Death at you stating that Ci-loser is slaying Bey and Tamar. thats a joke. B**** please. actually its Beyonce and Tamar who are slaying ci-loser, especially when they both out sold your flop favorite. remember c-flop aint even pass 200k yet. lololol. so all of a sudden she’s slaying just cause she had one hit song on the radio this year??? no b****, actually this is Beyonce and Tamar’s year. both had #1 albums on r&b charts. hit singles, not just one. Beyonce’ had a #1 album on billboard 200 over all and her album has already passed the 1 million mark in sales and will be certified platinum. so b**** go have a seat cause you sound dullusional as f***. ciara wont even be at 300k sold by this time next year let alone platinum LMFAO. and Tamar’s Love and war (single) went platinum, The One went Gold. her album is around 300k sold or at least close last I checked. plus she got 3 grammy nominations, 3 soul train awards, 2 reality shows, and a new talk show. What has CIERROR accomplished this year other than one gold single and becoming Future’s 15th baby mama. LOL???

  56. anonymous January 2, 2014

    Ciara ahead of Beyonce and Tamar? since when. They both should be higher on the list.

  57. iconic cici January 2, 2014

    @Anonymous Stay mad and keep writing essays h**…. Ciara above Tamar thats all that matters hahaha now play in traffic hun.

  58. FutureCIARA January 2, 2014

    @ICONIC CI

    YAS SIS, Let these randoms know it!

  59. TC!!! January 2, 2014

    overdose should’ve been promoted heavily

  60. cocobutta January 2, 2014

    Imagine Beyonce wouldn’t have even been on this list if it wasn’t for Dec 12/13th 2013 of slayage exculsive ONLY for iTunes.

    C-squad getting your life from that LMAO but errm ok after that WHOLE year.

    Let’s see if she’ll be “strong enough to bear the children, then get back to bidness”

  61. Antonio January 2, 2014

    Beyonce was featured on 2 singles (Turnt and Part II), released an compilation album with DC3 and had 3 singles (Grown Woman, Rise Up and Standing on the Sun) plus an album that charted for 3 wks. Ciara’s success this yr is off 1 single. If I’m Out and Overdose had actually did something and her album sold more, she’d easily be in the Top 10 on all yr end charts. Hopefully Bey keeps the campaign going strong on 2014 and Ci puts out more commercially viable music in 2014 because she has at least 2 big albums left in her…

  62. anonymous January 2, 2014

    @Iconic Cici. No b**** you go play in the dam traffic. what I got to be mad about H**??? Tamar had a number 1 R&B album, platinum and Gold singles. and lets not forget she’s a better singer than ciara even on her worst days, and she going to the grammys in a couple of weeks. CI-FLOP had 3 flop albums and aint been relevant siince 2006 h** bye. go worry about her struggling career and vocals. LOL. aint nobody checking for her anymore and as far as Ciara being ahead of Beyonce??? LMAO. This is why everybody thinks the c squad is the biggest joke around. has cierror even passed 200k yet??? b**** be seated.

  63. anonymous January 2, 2014

    @Futureciara let these randoms know what? that ci-flop gon be a baby mama and that her career is over. sweetie we all know that already. Im actually surprised by your comment because out of all the ciara stans, I liked and respected you the most becuase you didnt drag others to prop up your favorite, but after reading your comment, you not much different from the rest. lets face it at the end of the day every other artist had a more successful year than ciara. all ciara had was ONE hit song. Even R Kelly’s old self outsold her. did it ever occur to you that the reason why Ciara gets dragged is because she has the most annoying bitter stans trying to drag everyone elses favorite.
