Today Billboard named the 100 biggest hits in the history of the Hot 100 Billboard charts. Among the most surprising revelations – including Go artists Bruno Mars, Usher and Black Eyed Peas all finishing in the top 25 as well as the Black Eyed Peas having the record for the most consecutive weeks at #1 (26 straight weeks in 2009) was that Beyoncé doesn’t have the most successful solo single of any Destiny’s Child alumni.

Believe it or not, Kelly Rowland‘s 2002 hit “Dilemma” with Nelly was the 83rd most successful Hot 100 single of all time, far above any Beyoncé record – none of which cracked the Top 100.

We at Go would also like to take this time to remind you that, in the video, Kelly attempts to text Nelly using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

Chubby Checker‘s “The Twist” was at number 1 – largely due to two runs at the top of the charts in two separate years, followed by “Smooth” by Santana featuring Rob Thomas from the multi-platinum Grammy-award winning 1999 album Supernatural.
