"Hot R and B Songs" brings you up to date with six full years of new data since the last edition (formerly known as "Top RandB/Hip-Hop Singles"). Nearly seven decades are covered from every artist and song that hit Billboard's first Harlem Hit Parade chart in 1942 right through the latest Hot R and B/Hip-Hop Songs chart of 2010. Peak chart position, chart debut date, total weeks charted, total weeks at Number 1, Number 2 or Number 3, and original label and number are included. This is the first edition to have at least one line of biographical information for every artist! Other bonus features include Major Awards and Honour Listings, A-Z Song Title Section, Top Artist Achievements, Top 500 Artists Ranking, and much more.
