Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, and All the Women That Hit Number 1 in 2019

It’s been a big year for women at the top

December 19, 2019

We had horses in the back and at the top for a record-setting 19 weeks this year, as “Old Town Road” ruled the charts from April to August. However, before and after Lil Nas X it was a year dominated by the women of music, with 8 female artists landing a song at number one in 2019. For 23 weeks these Queens looked down from the number one spot, with more women taking the top position this year than any other time this decade.

2019 was packed with surprises. New talent bursting into the mainstream, songs that have been rediscovered, and one that finally ascended to the top after 25 years. From self-love anthems to a Christmas classic, these are the fierce females that ruled 2019.
