Quincy Jones: QUINCY'S TOP 50 HITS
Quincy Jones is credited as an artist with 13 chart entries on The Billboard Hot 100 and 25 chart entries on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. His first was "Killer Joe," which cracked both charts in May 1970. In later years, his albums of collaborations with other jazz, pop and R&B stars yielded some of his top charting hits.

"Back on the Block" in 1989, for example, included the singles "I'll Be Good to You," featuring Ray Charles and Chaka Khan, and "The Secret Garden," featuring Al B. Sure!, James Ingram, El DeBarge and Barry White. Both hit No. 1.

Those two songs are included in this ranking of Jones' top 50 hits on the Hot 100 as a producer. Not surprisingly, however, this chart is dominated by songs Jones produced but did not perform—most notably the record-setting string of hits he recorded with Michael Jackson for the albums "Off the Wall," "Thriller" and "Bad." ••••
