    Fall 1989 was all for Janet, her album and string of singles.
    Pretty sure Janet didn’t take up the whole top ten

    The thing to remember, is if Oh Father didn’t flop and miss the top ten in the US, Warner wouldn’t have asked Madonna for a b-side for Keep It Together and Vogue wouldn’t exist.

    To be totally honest, both Oh Father and Spanish Eyes felt like deliberate plots to recapture Live To Tell and La Isla Bonita, and neither quite hit the mark.
    I think it had to do with the lack of CD single, 12" and artwork for the vinyls (it was released in a plain white slipcase for the 7 inch, but it did have a cover artwork for the cassingle) . The 7 inch only had an edit and Pray for Spanish eyes (album v.) so not a heck of lot of incentive there imho.

    It might have gotten lost in the busy Xmas season in '89 too

    Radio didn't embrace it all that much, peaking at #22 and for some reason AC stations didn't play it

    If only "Oh Father" had got legs to go TOP 10 and she would have 26 consecutive TOP 10 Hits in US.

    Yes Madonna have 17 consecutive TOP 10's in US.

    "Borderline" was TOP 10 being the first for her TOP 10 string while the TOP 5 was "Lucky Star" was the first for her 16 consecutive TOP 5 string.

    But Madonnas is just as impressive if you see that in a 5 year period she had 16. While Janets was 2 extra in a 9 year period.

    I don't know how it is for artists in general especially concerning folks like Drake or whatever, so that's why I put "female" in front.

    In the UK she had 36 consecutive top tens, followed quickly by a second run of 17.

    I Got You Babe, Beat Goes On, Bang Bang, Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves, Half Breed, Dark Lady, Take Me Home, I Found Someone, After All, If I Could Turn Back Time, Jessie James and Shoop Shoop were all big hits for Cher before Believe landed in her lap.

    You don’t do global arena tours in your seventies if you only have one big hit.
    Right. That's why I hate stan wars. Cher is and has never been a one-trick pony. I feel she's actually underrated as an influential artist. And as a fan of Madonna, some of y'all definitely should know better especially as Madonna still gets disrespected too. We have to uplift the divas. Each and every last one of them.

    Being remembered for one hit doesn’t mean Cher ( or whoever) had just one hit, you misinterpreted DavieX in this case.

    On other note I noticed TAB entering the top20 daily stream song, hopping it will continue this way…,

    While I agree on C. Lauper and Cher to be mainly remembered for just one big hit , I don’t think it’s the same for Whitney who have , besides IWALY, some other big tunes that are still popular and played today, see “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” or “How will I know “ just to name a few.
    hmmm Maybe I mean IWALY swallowed her whole but I get what you mean, She did have some other hits and even some of her less known songs were good. "its not right but it's ok" and "your love is my love" are my favorite from her.
