They came, they conquered... they were never heard from again. After reaching the Hot 100's Top 10 with their very first singles, none of these acts managed to crack the Top 25 for the rest of the decade. But hey, four minutes of fame is better than nothing.

The one-hitmakers on this list have been ranked by how high their big song climbed on the chart compared to how far down the tally their subsequent highest-charting effort peaked.

Jibbs

Jibbs' ode to bling climbed all the way to No. 7 in October 2006. But the shine didn't last long; the rapper only made it as high as No. 54 with his next tune, "King Kong," five months later.

Sonique

In April 2000, Sonique went to No. 8 with her upbeat jam, "It Feels So Good." But the British pop diva hasn't felt so great since; nearly 10 years later, she has yet to appear on the chart again.

Spanish producer DJ Sammy floated to No. 8 on the Hot 100 in August 2002 with his remake of Bryan Adams' "Heaven." He continued to chart in other countries with his remakes of songs like "Everybody Hurts" and "The Boys of Summer," but none of them cracked the U.S. Hot 100.

Eden's Crush

Eden's Crush, featuring a young Nicole Scherzinger, peaked at No. 8 in March 2001 with "Get Over Yourself," after the girl group's formation was chronicled on the WB reality series "Popstars." But the Crush were no Pussycat Dolls -- the gals never made it back on the charts.

D.H.T.

Belgian dance act D.H.T. peaked at No. 8 on the Hot 100 in August 2005 with their remake of Roxette's "Listen to Your Heart." People stopped listening after that, and they have not been seen on the charts since.

Truth Hurts began her career with the help of rap legend Dr. Dre, and "Addictive," her single with Rakim, peaked at No. 9 in June 2002. But not even those heavyweights could give the St. Louis singer a lasting career: she hasn't charted on the Hot 100 since then.

Kevon Edmonds, brother of Babyface, peaked at No. 10 with his single "24/7" in December 1999. But unlike his famous little bro, Kevon stayed absent from the chart for the entirety of the 2000s.

S Club 7

S Club 7, the British pop group created by Simon Fuller of "American Idol" fame, crashed onto the U.S. chart with "Never Had a Dream Come True," which climbed to No. 10 in May 2001. Though wildly successful in other parts of the world, they never made a blip on the American charts again.

Young Dro feat. T.I.

T.I. protégé Young Dro reached No. 10 in August 2006 with "Shoulder Lean." Sadly, none of the solo singles that followed cause as much of a craze.
