Billboard has featured Destiny’s Child in it’s “Girl Group Week” series including Top 20 Most Underrated Girl Group Songs, Top 40 Girl Group Songs Of All Time and Top 10 Most Iconic Girl Group Music Videos. Here’s the excerpt for Destiny’s Child entry for Top 20 Most Underrated Girl Group Songs:

It’s Girl Group Week on Billboard.com! Let’s kick things off with the 40 highest-charting girl group singles ever.

For over five decades, girl groups have been an integral part of U.S. pop music by providing Top 40 radio with some of the catchiest tunes of all time. From “Wannabe” to “Weak,” from the heyday of Motown to the explosion of 80’s pop-rock to the R&B collectives of the 2000’s and everything in between, girl groups have long had immense success in our culture, and the Billboard Hot 100 chart wouldn’t look quite the same without them.

In celebration of girl groups as part of Pop Shop’s Girl Group Week, Billboard is presenting the 40 biggest girl group songs of all time! This ranking is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 chart through the tally dated May 3, 2014. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. To ensure equitable representation of the biggest hits from each era, certain time frames were weighted to account for the difference between turnover rates from those years.

Check out the Top 40 girl group songs of all time below, to see if your favorite single made the list:
