Jazz musician, arranger, producer, entrepreneur, social activist and one of the first black executives of a major record company: all describe the inimitable Quincy Jones. He is a one-person history of the entertainment industry over the past 60 years, going from be-bop to hip-hop. With more Grammy nominations and awards than anyone else alive, Quincy Jones is one of the great American success stories.
Here, we take a look at some of the top singles ever produced by Jones. The list is based on a point system developed for the third edition of "Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits."
Not surprisingly, this list is dominated by the record-setting string of hits he recorded with Michael Jackson. That said, there are still some unexpected titles on the list that might surprise you. Click ahead to see the top music singles ever produced by Quincy Jones.
