Here's a list of 50 artists who've been members of multiple bands or groups...and have done it the best!
These are the 50 singer/musicians who've had more success with multiple bands than anyone else. The genres included here are rock, pop, R&B and hip-hop (and all their derivatives).
To be considered for the list, the criteria were simple: 1) the artist must have been an "official" member of two or more bands; 2) at least two of the groups credited to an artist must be noteworthy with a full album and at least one hit; 3) simply being in a group's touring band doesn't qualify an artist for this list - the artist had to have recorded at least one album with each group being credited to him or her; 4) an artist's solo career doesn't help or hurt him or her in the rankings; and 5) duets, one-time projects, and "featured" collaborations (even repeat ones) don't count either, which eliminates all those featured artists that have become so prevalent in the 21st Century.
It's the most comprehensive list of its kind, so scroll through to find out who are the 50 Best Multi-Team Players in Music, courtesy of this special ranking by djrobblog.
Throughout modern history, women have made significant contributions to music in virtually every genre, be it R&B, pop, country, disco, rap/hip-hop, gospel, opera, electronic, reggae, funk...you name it. With March being Women's History Month, what better time is there than right now to shine the spotlight on those who've had the most impact in music over the years.
With that in mind, I've created the countdown of countdowns, the 100 Greatest Women in Music for the Past 50 Years.
This special djroblist is one for the ages. It is about as diverse a list as you'll encounter of this type (believe me, I scoured the Internet to back up that claim). Women from many generations and various genres are represented here.
As with nearly every Internet list, there are a few caveats I must cover.
First, this is a secular music list. So the many artists who are exclusively gospel or Christian musicians are not represented here. That's not to say their contributions over the past five decades haven't been notable - quite the contrary. Groundbreaking artists like Tramaine Hawkins, Shirley Caesar, Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans, Albertina Walker and, of course, Mahalia Jackson certainly deserve praise for all they've done for gospel and to inspire others.
But in the final analysis, the playing field was an uneven one for gospel singers. Over the years and even still today, many of the metrics that benefit mainstream musicians (like massive sales, widespread exposure through radio airplay, video channels and streaming) place gospel artists at a comparative disadvantage.
Also, this list is a tribute to individual accomplishments, so you won't see any groups. Hence, musical acts like TLC, Dixie Chicks, En Vogue, Salt-n-Pepa, Destiny's Child, Pointer Sisters, Sister Sledge and the Supremes are not listed. However, their individual members may be listed if they had noteworthy or significant roles in the group's success or if they also had qualifying solo success (e.g., Diana Ross, Stevie Nicks, Beyoncé).
So how did I create this ranking?
I used some of the standard metrics, like chart positions, record sales, or numbers of hits...along with career longevity. Also, more subjective factors like innovation, creativity and artistry came into play. Artists who've been recognized by credible music industry authorities (like Billboard or Rolling Stone magazine, or various halls of fame), awards committees (like the Grammys, BET) and music critics likely fared better than others, even if their sales and overall popularity would suggest otherwise.
Also, the list gives more credence to an artist's prime years, with little or no detraction for the inevitable decline that occurs. Obviously, singers whose prime years lasted longer have an advantage over others.
But most importantly, the list is influenced by opinion - both mine and yours. Any Internet list of singers, particularly one that ranks women, is bound to create some controversy. I don't expect this to be any different. Unlike many other djroblists, this one gives you the ability to weigh in on each item. So feel free to vote and/or comment on them as you read it.
Now, without further ado, I'll let the ladies tell it...
Here are the 100 Women with the Greatest Impact on Music over the Past 50 Years!
