Sorry to break it to you But, Bing Crosby had 38 number one hits. The most in history. He's considered the most successful vocalist of all time. Up to 1950 he was virtually, unbeatable.
He held the top singer spot for nearly 20 years,
no one has done it since.

I am happy those who are knowledgeable of Bing's record sales ,set the record straight.

Bing in fact had more number one singles than any artist, and sold an incredible 500,000,000 plus !!!!
