Artists With The Most U.S. Number 1’s


Information last updated in January of 2013. Information subject to change in the future.

NOTE: Paul McCartney’s entry includes one with Michael Jackson and one with Stevie Wonder. Which is to say that one of Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson’s entries include Paul McCartney in a duet.

However, for either Paul McCartney, or Michael Jackson, this does NOT include “The Girl Is Mine” (which hit #2).
