Sometimes, some awesome news keep coming our way, and this just comes to demonstrate that our princess’ legacy lives on. Dolores O’Riordan is Number 1 at the all-time top female artists of Billboard’s Alternative Songs Chart.
The previous week, Billboard‘s Alternative Songs Chart have celebrated their 30th anniversary, and although the list tends to be heavily male-dominated, they have found out that women have also contributed an important piece of music history on this ranking. Thus, Billboard’s number one is our all-times and in all-ways Number 1:
“Thanks to her eight entries on the chart, including a pair of No. 1s as the frontwoman for The Cranberries, the late Dolores O’Riordan rules as the chart’s all-time top female artist (encompassing soloists, group frontwomen and women in duos). The band also lands both of its No. 1s on the weekly survey on the all-time top 300 Alternative Songs recap: “Zombie,” at No. 39, thanks to its six-week run at No. 1 in 1994, and “Salvation,” at No. 280, after ruling the chart for four weeks in 1996.”
Some other female artists on this list are Sinéad O’Connor at No.17, Meg White (The White Stripes), who ranks at No. 2, Shirley Manson (Garbage) at No.4, and Alanis Morissette is the top solo woman on the list, at No. 5.
A very well deserved recognition that comes as a little relief to soothe our broken hearts and to make us feel even prouder (as if that was possible) of our little girl.
