The South African Charts started in 1981.

The Top 100 Albums and The Top 65 Singles.

In 1988 the Singles chart was expanded into the Top 75 and in 1992 it expaned into the Top 100.

A common factor, most American artist don't release too many singles here.

The Most Successful American Divas: Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Patti La Belle, Madonna, Celine Dion, Toni Braxton and TLC.

Special thanks to Five FM Top 40 and Music Globe for allowing me to use this information.
