1984 - Madonna
Madonna releases her second studio album Like a Virgin, giving Madge her first #1 on the US albums chart.
1994 - TLC
The R&B group release their second studio album CrazySexyCool, which was produced by Puff Daddy and Babyface (fun fact). The album peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 but stayed on the charts for 2 years (all kinds of fun facts).
1997 - Celine Dion
The Greatest Singer in the World (see old SNL reference) releases her album Let's Talk About Love which includes the epic Titanic song "My Heart Will Go On". Oh, you don't remember that song? I know you read that with sarcasm, right? Here's a refresher:
1998 - Madonna
Madge is back by winning Best Female and Best Album for Ray of Light, her seventh album (fun fact extravaganza today), at the Europe Music Video Awards.
2004 - Gwen Stefani
The No Doubt singer appears on TV for her first time as a solo artist at the American Music Awards, singing "What Are You Waiting For". Kinda cringe-worthy- she hasn't fully merged into her true self here.
2010 - Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift sets a record by becoming the first female artist to place 11 songs on the Hot 100 at the same time. That Guinness Record is now Cardi B's. Sorry Tay-Tay.
2016 - Chainsmokers
Everybody's favorite band to dislike, behind Nickleback, hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Closer" featuring the vocal stylings of Halsey. I guess they're not that unlikeable after all.
