  6. Lmfao_Hoe September 16, 2021

    No Michael Jackson ?????!!!!!! Not even Janets rhythm nation nor Whitney I will Always Love You and Mariah’s iconic Hero

    • Rashad September 16, 2021

      Michael had Billie Jean and Beat It, Madonna Like a Prayer and Into the Groove, Janet Rhythm Nation, Whitney IWALY and I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Mariah Fantasy, Bey Crazy in Love, Formation and Single Ladies. Gaga Bad Romance. Prince had a lot of entries

    • Wwwd September 16, 2021

      Y’all keep rhythm Nation Janet she nasty

  7. Danny Bey September 16, 2021

    The way this magazine has a vendetta against the Jacksons is weird af. There’s absolutely no reason why Billie Jean, Rhythm Nation, Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough, or That’s The Way Love Goes should all not be in the top 10

    And I Will always Love You at #98??????? Suck d*ck.

  8. DojaCat Say So September 16, 2021

    Robyn “Dancing on My Own” is a classic hit. Miles better than dancing with a stranger (Normani)

  9. Rashad September 16, 2021

    The fact that Lizzo, Carly Rae Jepsen, MIA and a few other lackluster songs (esp Kanye) had entries but Janet only had “Rhythm Nation” and Mariah “Fantasy” and Gaga “Bad Romance”. Where are Britney’s “Baby One More Time”, Madonna’s “Vogue” and “Ray of Light”, Michael’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “Thriller”? Too many meh hip hop entries. Love Bey but “Formation” ain’t it either.

    • Rashad September 16, 2021

      I was wrong. Vogue and Toxic made the list

  10. Slick September 16, 2021

    Beyoncé does not need to be in that list. Why do they always force this lie on us?

  11. Slick September 16, 2021

    Greatest song ever sung by WHITNEY HOUSTON – I will always love you. The song is literally a perfect masterpiece. And sung by a person who in her prime had no rival. (I’m a Mariah fan but she came after and we all know it.)
    Now Queen deserves a couple songs up there. Frank Sinatra, and the one and only MICHAEL FUCKEN JACKSON.

    • #Chlöe 💋DESTROYED💩mani September 16, 2021

      And iiiiiiiii will always love CRACK ~

      • Slick September 16, 2021

        You do realize that doesn’t change the beast she once was right? Her vocal talent was and still is unmatched.

      • Wwwd September 16, 2021

        Whitney died from drowning asshole she wasn’t on crack

    • What would Whitney do September 16, 2021

      Her Star spangled banner was one of her best vocals

  12. Trutime September 16, 2021
