But when JoJo, who has yet to top the US Billboard charts and only top 10-ed once with "Too Little Too Late" back in 2006, ranked in number three — above the likes of Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin, and Beyonce, suspicions were raised.
Then, in at number 7, landed Ashlee Simpson — ahead of both Tina Turner and Adele at 8 and 9 — while Tiktok star Addison Rae, who has only released one solitary single — somehow rounded out the top ten.
No Celine Dion, no Alicia Keys, no Amy Winehouse, no Ella Fitzgerald, no Diana Ross, no Etta James, no Madonna, no Toni Braxton, no Billie Holiday, no Lauryn Hill, no Janet Jackson, no Patti LaBelle, no Jennifer Hudson, no Christina Aguilera ... and Twitter was incensed, to the point where Ashlee Simpson became a trending topic:
Addison Rae being on this list is completely disrespectful. Ashlee Simpson above ADELE?! Was this a team that came up with this? I need a 1v1 with each of you for this atrocity https://t.co/iz39OqdQxW
