Number One Hits of 1993

Only 11 songs have the distinct privilege of making it to the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1993. This is mainly due to 3 female pop singers who dominated the top spot for a combined 27 weeks during the course of the year. Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey ruled the charts in 1993, but do you remember Snow, Silk and SWV? Well, if these artists don't ring a bell, give this playlist a spin and I bet you'll remember the songs when you hear them.
