One Hit Wonders of the 1990s


For almost all artists, having a hit on the US Billboard charts (most importantly the Hot 100 or pop chart) is a dream come true. The one-hit wonders may not have been able to duplicate their earlier successes, but at least they have had a hit on the Billboard Top 40, and that’s a great achievement. Many of the one-hit wonders went on with their own musical careers, moved on to focus on other projects, or fell off the radar completely.
