Yes, she's simply the best, better than all the rest, better than anyone... but alas not quite as successful as 51 other acts! Tina Turner has an incredibly impressive rock voice that very few female singers can match. She started her career back in the 60s with husband Ike - and frankly the less said about that the better. Someone on YouTube I saw called them "the Chris Brown and Rihanna of their day". Tina came through it though, and went on to have a hugely successful solo career - as can be seen by this position here.
She had some massive rock anthems in the 80s, with "We Don't Need Another Hero" and of course "The Best", but the biggest of all is actually "What's Love Got To Do With It". Just how many more female soloists remain, and just who are they?Biggest Singles:

Tomorrow, I attend a wedding. Therefore, it's highly coincidental that the first two songs in this list are wedding songs! First up 50s crooner Eddie Fisher, whose biggest hit was the turgid cheesy "I'm Walking Behind You". Then, rock legend Billy Idol - whose biggest hit is of course "White Wedding"! Classical tenor Juse Carreras is followed by Busta Rhymes, and due to just how much bigger "Don't Cha" was than any of his own hits, he rather cruelly gets a link to a Pussycat Dolls song he rapped a short intro for! Giving a slight break from male soloists, we have late 90s Britpop stars Catatonia, and then it's back to the male soloists with 60s crooner Matt Monro and current star Example. Busta is joined by another member of the Rhymes family in this set (or should that be Rimes?) - country singer LeAnn Rimes! I have to say that neither Busta nor LeAnn rhyme with all that much. Finally, we have the UK answer to ABBA, 70s band and Eurovision winners Brotherhood of Man, and Geordie TV star and singer Jimmy Nail!
