Nobody does it like Beyoncé. The superstar is iconic, and her Billboard chart history proves it. In honor of her new album Cowboy Carter, we’re running down her biggest chart achievements. This is Billboard Explains: Beyoncé’s Reign on the Charts.

Fans were first introduced to Beyoncé as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child. The group racked up four Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s, including “Say My Name” and “Independent Women, Pt.1.”

As a solo star, Beyoncé had her breakout year in 2003. Her first solo album, Dangerously in Love, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and its lead single, “Crazy in Love,” topped the Hot 100 for eight weeks.

In total, Beyoncé has nine solo Hot 100 hits, including “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” “Irreplaceable” and “Texas Hold ‘Em,” which debuted at No. 1 on Hot Country Songs, making her the first Black female artists to ever top the chart.

Beyoncé has spent 46 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in her career, the third most of any woman in history, behind Mariah Carey with 93 and Rihanna with 60. Plus, all seven of Beyoncé’s solo studio albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
