Never seen this discussed before so thought I'd bring it up as it could be interesting.

Does anyone know which acts have had the highest number of Top 40 hits as a featured artist?

My guess would be Nicki Minaj? Or maybe Pitbull. Could be a few surprises though if anyone has actual data...

Chris Brown? Off the top of my head I know Champion, I Can Only Imagine, International Love, As Your Friend, Show Me, Best Love Song and Only.

His name always seems to be on at least 5 songs in the iTunes top 100 whether as a main or featured artist.

I'd say either Pitbull or Flo Rida. They seem to have been the generic rent a rappers over the past 5/6 years.

With a bit of clever spreadsheet manipulation I've come up with a list for 2002-present (I'm afraid I don't have the data to manipulate for years before that but considering the leader here is so far ahead and features weren't really that common a thing when you go further back in chart history, I'd be fairly confident I have the correct person for most top 40s as a featured artist).

Acts with 7+ top 40 hits as a featured artist 2002-present:
17 Lil Wayne
11 Kanye West
11 Ludacris
11 Pitbull
10 Justin Timberlake
10 Pharrell
10 will.i.am
9 Missy Elliott
9 Snoop Dogg
8 50 Cent
8 Akon
8 Emeli Sandé
8 Jay-Z
8 Nicki Minaj
8 Rihanna
8 Tinie Tempah
7 Chris Brown
7 Ne-Yo
7 Sean Paul
7 T.I.
7 Timbaland

(Note that this strictly counts FEATURES only, so for example Kanye West/Jay-Z/Big Sean 'Clique' isn't counted for Jay-Z's total there as Jay is a joint lead credit).

Flo Rida has in fact only had 5 top 40 hits as a feature (namely Olly Murs' 'Troublemaker', David Guetta's 'Where Them Girls At', Alexandra Burke's 'Bad Boys', The Saturdays' 'Higher' and Taio Cruz's 'Hangover'), nowhere near even the top 20 of 2002-present magic.gif

Interesting that so many of them are black American artists. And I really didn't think Lil Wayne was so featured! The only song I can think of him doing off the top of my head are I Can Only Imagine

Keri Hilson has had six* top 40 features ('Hey Now (Mean Muggin')', 'The Way I Are', 'Scream', 'Superhuman', 'Turn My Swag On (Remix)' & 'In The Air') and ten* ('Hero', 'Oh Africa', 'Got Your Back' & 'Liv Tonight') features which reached the top 75.

* = including the 'Turn My Swag On' remix - which I'm not sure is an official version, so I'm not sure whether it counts or not

If often seemed, in 2002, that Ashanti featured on every song.

Those 17 hits:

#3 Jay Sean - Down (feat. Lil Wayne)
#3 Lloyd - Dedication To My Ex (Miss That) (feat. André 3000 and Lil Wayne)
#4 Destiny's Child - Soldier (feat. T.I. and Lil Wayne)
#5 Kevin Rudolf - Let It Rock (feat. Lil Wayne)
#9 Jennifer Lopez - I'm Into You (feat. Lil Wayne)
#10 Chris Brown - Loyal (feat. Lil Wayne and Tyga)
#13 Busta Rhymes - Thank You (feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Q-Tip)
#18 David Guetta - I Can Only Imagine (feat. Chris Brown and Lil Wayne)
#21 Enrique Iglesias and Usher - Dirty Dancer (feat. Lil Wayne)
#23 Chris Brown - Gimme That (feat. Lil Wayne)
#26 Chris Brown - I Can Transform Ya (feat. Lil Wayne and Swizz Beatz)
#31 Nicki Minaj - High School (feat. Lil Wayne)
#33 Eminem - No Love (feat. Lil Wayne)
#33 Jay-Z and T.I. - Swagga Like Us (feat. Kanye West and Lil Wayne)
#34 The Game - My Life (feat. Lil Wayne)
#35 Nicki Minaj - Only (feat. Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown)
#37 Kevin Rudolf - I Made It (Cash Money Heroes) (feat. Birdman, Jay Sean and Lil Wayne)

He's had a further 7 top 75 hits and 3 more top 100 hits as a feature (and also 4 top 40 hits, 6 other top 75 hits and 1 other top 100 hit as lead artist).

This is not hugely surprising considering he is the most charted artist ever in the USA, with more hits even than Elvis and the Glee Cast (I think). Most of those didn't do anything / weren't released in the UK but some naturally crossed over.

Surprised that Drake and Eminem arent on here actually.

That whole list is pretty great though (with the exception of Pitbull laugh.gif )

Didn't realise Sean Paul had 8 though!? Can only think of Breathe, Baby Boy & Dangerous Love.

Definitely someone from 2000+

I'm convinced some rappers just go into a studio and record around twenty random raps to a 4/4 beat or click track and then leave them with the producers to randomly chuck on a record as and when they feel they work. They never feel like true collaborations and the lyrics don't always match those of the main song.

I might guess Busta Rhymes.

According to polyhex, I can only find these songs which feature Sean Paul:

Breathe (Blu Cantrell, #1)
Baby Boy (Beyonce, #2)
Do You Remember (Jay Sean, #13)
Summer Paradise (Simple Plan, #12)
What About Us (The Saturdays, #1 - how could you forget that one Mike laugh.gif)
Dangerous Love (Fuse ODG, #3)

So I'm not sure what the other two are. I would have thought bre's list was fairly accurate though, so maybe there are two on which he's not officially credited or something.

There is a song called 'Do It To It' credited to "Cherish Featuring Sean Paul Of The YoungBloodZ" which made #30 in 2006 but presumably that's a different Sean Paul?

I'd forgotten Sean Paul was on that song laugh.gif Thinking about it now, I remember their "faux-Jamaican" accents so it all fits!

Think he had a song with Busta Rhymes ages ago, don't know if that ever charted.

She wasn't credited on the charts on "Hey Now (Mean Muggin')"

Ah you are correct about Cherish, I forgot to account for that kink.gif Sean should be on 7 then with the last being Busta Rhymes' Make It Clap.
