        Agreed…and they can stop lying and publishing misleading news as well…

        THIS TOP THEY PUBLISH ABOVE WAS BILLBOARD’S STAFF PICK so is their opinion just that!

        They published one official chart of the decade based on numbers and weeks on hot 200.

    • SA November 20, 2019

      Ì thought I was the only one!!!

  3. Swirly November 20, 2019

    Not ONE of Nicki’s albums made the top 20? I at least thought Pink Friday would have made it.

    • MillionaireMan November 20, 2019

      She didn’t even make the list.

  4. Fancy BISH November 20, 2019

    My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is very deserving of the top spot! Sad it wasn’t even nominated at the Grammys for Album Of The Year, the snub that has me looking sideways at the Grammys forever! 😂 Like, ya’ll gon’ nominate Lil Nas X’s EP and not nominate MBDTF? Really? Ok 🤣 I’mma watch the Runaway film today 🤳🏽🔥

  5. Nicky November 20, 2019

    The other pop girls who released albums can’t relate.

  6. Martaevia La’Wayne November 20, 2019

    Good list but they’re definitely missing Brandy’s Two Eleven.

  7. Dr November 20, 2019

    Cardi on 🔥🔥🔥 keeping haters mad

  8. Lmfao_Hoe November 20, 2019

    Lemonade was iight I would’ve preferred the self titled more and omg yes Brandys 211 should’ve as it was a great album

  9. Jay Thats Me November 20, 2019

    Bull crap that J.Cole isn’t on this list.

    • Fancy BISH November 20, 2019

      He’s on the list, #85 ✅

  10. Fancy BISH November 20, 2019

    Lolololololol I guess this qualified, proffesional bloger is a Whitewannabeyoncé stan.. lmao why didn’t you post the list with numbers, because your fave was not listed in the top 20 lolol

    • Fancy BISH November 20, 2019

      A flop b*****, listed above 40s on artists of the decade while Slaylor Swiftly inflitrated the freaking top 10

      • Fancy BISH November 20, 2019

        Artists of all time I meant. lmao, when will your faves?

  11. Clarksoon November 20, 2019

    CAMILA by Camila cabello
    Number 80

    thanks billboard.
    A solo debut album did that.

    They hate to see it

    • JOHNVIDAL November 20, 2019

      That´s literally nothing LOL

    • Hey you November 20, 2019

      And Cardi is at #14 with a solo debut, so what’s your point h0£???

    • Clarksoon November 20, 2019

      Hòes mad
      🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      Camila made the cut that’s all that matters

      The Debut Album CAMILA by Camila Cabello has spent over 95 consecutive weeks on Billboard 200 And it hasn’t left since the release day

      Billboard’s Top Female Artists of the Decade:
      Number 24 , Camila Cabello

      *less than 3 years of solo career*

      hòes mad hòes mad .

      They hate to see it.

      • Tori November 20, 2019

        Know ones mad and you know it with your funny looking ass!

  12. No Glory November 20, 2019

    WTF? Take care? Over Nothing was the same? Yea right. Nothing was the same is Drake’s best album to date. Where is Chris Brown’s FAME? Beyonce’ s best album is 4. Not “Beyonce”. Kanye’s album def isn’t the best. This list is tainted. Are they basing this on sales?

  13. Jasmine The Real Princess November 20, 2019

    But where is Flopnika? 😂😂😂

    • You Tried November 20, 2019

      Crazy that people deny her impact. The Pinkprint was a 1000% better than invasion of privacy

    • SMH November 20, 2019

      Nah, its because beyonce didn’t make the top 20 on ANY of the Greatest Artists of All Time lists lol.

      • 👋🏼 November 20, 2019

        This site is so biased

        We know beyonce has never slayed the charts like that

  14. only facts November 20, 2019

    LOL. Nicki’s name nowhere to be found on this list I see.

    • SMH November 20, 2019

      Check the Greatest Artists of All Time lists, then report back lol.

      • No Glory November 22, 2019

        Nicki has shown that she COULD be but chooses not to do so which is baffling. She has all the tools but she just doesn’t do what she needs to do anymore. Too busy beefing with everyone. She needs to learn how to just ignore all negativity at this point.

  15. Suxmycockiness 😮 November 20, 2019

    Wow This list is strange. How is Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN so low on the list? It was definitely better than TPAB. Also, How is Rihanna’s LOUD so low on the list? It had 3 #1 singles 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • SMH November 20, 2019

      Because of streaming, the default method for those that don’t sell units.

  16. Beam Me Up Scotty November 20, 2019

    Please see the full list Nicki Minaj haters. She is also the female rapper of the decade, #2 Female R&B/HIP-HOP artist, and #2 rapper of the decade. Stay mad.

    • Dr November 20, 2019

      She took ten years cardi had 2 nobody was out with Nicki female wise but cardi will far exceed her faster her done more in less time

      • Beam Me Up Scotty November 20, 2019

        And Cardi’s time is up. It ain’t about the race either, it’s the marathon

    • Dr November 20, 2019

      How u know her time is up her sophomore album not even out that’s a premature statement to make i doubt someone whose time is over would be getting interviewed by vogue and getting a Grammy nomination in their down time on hiatus still in demand ha ha

  17. JOHNVIDAL November 20, 2019

    Bittch please lol I suppose this is not quality wise.

    • SMH November 20, 2019

      Lol agreed, this list is just………

    • Clarksoon November 20, 2019

      Yes the list is not quality cause ur flop faves didnt appear on it.
      🤣🤣🤣

      Sore losers

  18. pat November 20, 2019
