Lead Acts With the Shortest Names to Top the Hot 100

Among lead acts, here’s an updated list of those that have kept it the shortest and sweetest at No. 1 on the Hot 100 for all-time, counting total characters in an artist’s name (including punctuation, so, sorry, acts like T.I., B.o.B and a-ha). OMI joins eight other acts in trailing only M and U2 for the quirky honor:

Artist, Title, Year Reached No. 1
M, “Pop Muzik,” 1979 (one character)

U2, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” “With or Without You,” 1987 (two characters)

OMI, “Cheerleader,” 2015 (three characters)
D4L, “Laffy Taffy,” 2006
Mya, “Lady Marmalade,” 2001 (with Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim & P!nk)
Joe, “Stutter,” 2001 (featuring Mystikal)
TLC, “Unpretty,” “No Scrubs,” 1999; “Waterfalls,” “Creep,” 1995
SWV, “Weak,” 1993
EMF, “Unbelievable,” 1991
