Exclusive Infographic: Which One-Hit Wonder Are You?


Ah, the one-hit wonder. It’s what all newly successful Billboard Hot 100 artists fear most — right, Carly Rae Jepsen? Well, maybe it’s too soon to predict the “Call Me Maybe” singer’s fate, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she eventually joins the forgotten ranks of Aqua and Lou Bega — y’know, after she’s done jamming with The Roots and whatnot. Did you know that some music industry folks consider Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin to be one-hit wonders? They each only had one song on the Top 40 charts, which technically qualifies them. Crazy stuff. Anyway, after the jump, we took a few of the best-selling one-hit wonders of all time and made a silly little flowchart to determine the hit that suits you best.
