In her mid-1980s to mid-1990s heyday, Whitney Houston, who died on Saturday in Los Angeles at age 48, was a Billboard chart-topping force, and her successes from that era qualify her as one of the most commercially successful female solo artists of all time, if not the most successful.

On Billboard's list of the Top Ten albums by women that have spent the longest time atop the charts, Houston has three of them, which is more than anybody else. Number one is 1992's The Bodyguard, which held the top spot for 20 weeks, number four is her 1986 debut Whitney Houston, for 14 weeks, and number 8 is 1987's Whitney, at 11 weeks. (That top spot is under threat by Adele's 21, which has been the biggest seller 19 times so far, and currently holds that position.)

Below are videos of Houston's top ten selling hit singles, as compiled by Billboard, starting with 1992's "I Will Always Love You" and on down to 1995's "Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)."
