      Whitney Houston's Billboard Chart Records
      By Gary Trust | August 09, 2013 10:14 AM EDT

      Here's a look back at the many chart achievements that the gifted vocalist accomplished.

      To celebrate the 50th birthday (August 9) of the late, great Whitney Houston, here's a look back at the many chart achievements that the gifted vocalist accomplished.

      ALBUM CHART QUEEN: Almost no woman led the Billboard 200 albums chart quite like Houston.

      The Houston-led soundtrack to "The Bodyguard" stands as the second-longest-reigning album by a woman in the 57-year history of the survey.

      Here's a look at the elite albums by solo females to have spent the most time atop the tally:

      Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Year Reached No. 1
      24 weeks, "21," Adele, 2011
      20 weeks, "The Bodyguard" soundtrack/Whitney Houston, 1992
      15 weeks, "Tapestry," Carole King, 1971
      14 weeks, "Whitney Houston," Whitney Houston, 1986
      13 weeks, "Judy at Carnegie Hall," Judy Garland, 1961
      12 weeks, "Jagged Little Pill," Alanis Morissette, 1995
      12 weeks, "Fearless, " Taylor Swift, 2008
      11 weeks, "Mariah Carey," Mariah Carey, 1991
      11 weeks, "Whitney," Whitney Houston, 1987
      10 weeks, "Forever Your Girl," Paula Abdul, 1989
      10 weeks, "The Singing Nun," the Singing Nun, 1963

      Houston is the only woman to have tallied reigns of more than 10 weeks with multiple albums. While no other woman has more than one such set, Houston had three: "The Bodyguard" (20 weeks), "Whitney Houston"(14) and "Whitney" (11).

      With Houston also leading for a week in 2009 with her last studio album, "I Look to You," her 46 total weeks at the Billboard 200 summit are the most among women.

      INSTANT SUCCESS: Four years before the practice became the norm upon the advent of Nielsen SoundScan electronic point-of-sale data, Houston scored the first No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 for a female performer.

      The week of June 27, 1987, "Whitney" launched at the chart's top spot, where it held for its first 11 weeks. It remained in the top 10 for its first 31 weeks, through Jan. 23, 1988.

      STRONG SEVEN: Houston holds the Billboard Hot 100 record for most consecutive No. 1 singles, having tallied seven in-a-row from 1985 through 1988.

      Here is a look at her unequaled chart-topping streak:

      Date Reached No. 1, Title (Weeks at No. 1)
      Oct. 26, 1985, "Saving All My Love for You" (one)
      Feb. 15, 1986, "How Will I Know" (two)
      May 17, 1986, "Greatest Love of All" (three)
      June 27, 1987, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" (two)
      Sept. 26, 1987, "Didn't We Almost Have It All" (two)
      Jan. 9, 1988, "So Emotional" (one)
      April 23, 1988, "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" (two)

      Even when her streak ended, Houston's next four solo singles all reached the Hot 100's top 10. (She missed only with "It Isn't, It Wasn't, It Ain't Never Gonna Be," a sassy superstar duet with Aretha Franklin).

      With 11 career Hot 100 No. 1s, Houston trails only Mariah Carey (18) and Madonna and Rihanna (12 each) for the most among women. Janet Jackson rounds out the category's top five with 10 leaders.

      'EX'-TRAORDINARY: Houston's "Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)" is one of 14 songs by women to have debuted at No. 1 in the Hot 100's history.

      The song, from the "Waiting to Exhale" soundtrack, opened atop the Nov. 25, 1995, Hot 100.

      "Exhale" also led R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for eight frames, becoming one of her eight No. 1s on the tally.

      Houston additionally notched 10 leading titles on Adult Contemporary, making her one of just seven artists to reach the double-digit mark in the chart's 52-year archives.

      ALWAYS BE LOVED: When Houston's remake of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" wrapped its 14-week run atop the Hot 100 in 1993, the song stood as the longest-leading title since the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception.

      To-date, only Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day" (16 weeks, 1995-96) has surpassed the reign (also matched by five other songs).

      Said Parton, who wrote "Always," upon Houston's passing, "Mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song.

      "I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, 'Whitney, I will always love you.'

      "You will be missed."
      This is a lovely article. "STRONG SEVEN" would hold the record for a long period of time. It would be extremely hard to break that record.
      And to do so consecutively... Katy was the only one who got even remotely close I think. But I could be wrong.
      "Crime is increasing
      Trigger happy policing..."
      -- Marvin Gaye ("Inner City Blues")

          33 30 108 Whitney: The Greatest Hits Whitney Houston


          Whitney also mentioned in the chart topic,

          Lorde makes it three women in the Hot 100's top three, as "Royals" ranks at No. 3 for a second week. The song shows a 17% increase to 263,000 downloads sold (although it retreats 2-3 on Digital Songs); jumps 8-5 on Streaming Songs (5 million, up 25%); and reaches the Radio Songs top 10 (13-5; 89 million, up 25%). As reported Monday, with its sixth week atop Alternative Songs, "Royals" becomes the longest-leading No. 1 by a lead woman in the chart's 25-year history, passing Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know." "Royals" tops Hot Rock Songs for a third week.

          (How notable is an all-girls club in the Hot 100's top three positions? Women billed as leads hadn't monopolized the top region in a year-and-a-half, with Perry also figuring into the last such occurrence: the week of March 3, 2012, her "Part of Me" debuted at No. 1, followed by Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" (2-2). Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" rose to No. 3 after re-entering at No. 7 the week before following her death.)


          Not sure why, but "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" was around Top 300 for several days. Sales...

                            • I've just checked the Billboard database and in addition to the above chart, Whitney charts on two other charts this week...

                              She's now spent 14 weeks on this chart with I Will Always Love You, with the song peaking at #20.

                              Soundtracks: #18 [The Bodyguard OST]

                              She's now spent 21 weeks on this chart with The Bodyguard, with the soundtrack peaking at #1.

                                    This will be why she's not charting on the main albums chart - she's not eligible and hasn't been for some time.

                                          The album isn't charting on the main albums chart, because its charting on the Budget Albums chart - meaning that her label are sending it to retail at a cost of less than 3.50 per unit [so, its obviously in the bargain bins of UK shops].

                                                        I am kind of curious the price for "The Ultimate Collection" in UK. Is it dramatic lower? It sold really well in UK.

                                                          * Japan used to have separate certifications for full-track songs downloaded on mobile phones and those downloaded on PCs. They have now been merged for one single format for all full-track downloads (finally!). Ringtones are still separate (thank god!).

                                                            I was using Google translation. It is a surprise to me that most of Plat or double plat were released long time ago. "Beat It", "I Want It That Way", I cannot tell which Mariah song... should be "All I Want for X'mas is you"(I guess).
