    A lot of these are incorrect!!! A lot of misleading information!!! Do some research and look these over!

  17. #17 by franck on March 16, 2012 - 21:06

    oh come on, bey is very good and one of the most successful female singer of this decade but the list of records isn’t correct. and in most of the things, it’s written black female, black artist. but everybody knows that when it comes to singers like whitney houston,mariah carey or celine,we won’t often read black female or black artist, which is to say that they went beyond that!

  18. #18 by Terry on February 8, 2012 - 08:03

    Come on now…the author greatly exaggerated this! I love B dearly, but please be honest! I can really shred this list considerably.

  19. #19 by Terry on February 8, 2012 - 07:54

    I truly like Beyonce, but some of this is inaccurate. For example #14, she only spent 8 weeks at number one. She did not sell as many albums as the more experienced divas. Also #5, come on now…how can she trump Angela Bassett, Queen Latifah, Jada P-Smith., Vivica Fox, etc? Furthermore, this is doing this era…by comparison to the other artist, she is not that superior! If an identical list was created for Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Celina, Modonna, and Brittany S., she would not compete. LOL at number 23; how did Destiny Child (45 million) sell more than Spice Girls (75 million) and TLC (50 million). Check on #28 also…does Dolly Parton ring a bell? I will stop here because many of those numbers are incorrect.

  20. #20 by alexandria rogers on February 3, 2012 - 18:22
