(Note: Missy Elliott's top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100, through the Dec. 26, 2015, ranking. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, certain eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.)
