MADONNA IS #1 BILLBOARD DANCE CLUB SONGS ARTIST OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS
The icon reigns thanks largely to her record total of 46 No. 1s, the most of any artist on any single Billboard chart, and her consistently dazzling performance on the tally since her 1982 debut.
In the Dance Club Songs chart’s history, in addition to her unmatched 46 No. 1s, Madonna owns the record for the most top 10s: 60. Janet Jackson follows with 33.
The Greatest of All Time Top Dance Club Artists ranking is based on weekly performance on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart, from its Aug. 28, 1976, inception through Aug. 27, 2016.
Artists on the all-time chart are ranked based on the combined point totals of all their Dance Club Songs chart entries (with songs ranked based on an inverse point system and weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least; due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras were weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates over various periods).
