Added DiffLines:

* Music/KendrickLamar's ''To Pimp A Butterfly'' peaked at #1 on the album charts and is considered to be one of the best albums of all time, but none of the singles made it to the top 40, with "King Kunta" getting the closest, peaking at #55. Given that it's a ConceptAlbum, this isn't particularly surprising.

* Artists with #1 albums on the Billboard 200 but no top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 include JoshGroban, Music/JillScott, the Decemberists, Amos Lee, Vampire Weekend, and Music/IndiaArie.

* JanelleMonae's albums have all been on the Top 200 for albums (peaking at 5) but not one of her singles was in the top 200 singles until 2015 (5 years after her debut album) with "Yoga". This is probably because her albums are all {{Concept Album}}s and suffer from CriticalDissonance.

* Music/ChildishGambino's debut studio album, ''Camp'', debuted at number 11, with its singles barely charting. Similarly, his second album ''because the internet'' peaked at number 7 while its singles ("3005" and "Crawl") were barely in the top 100. The singles from ''Awaken, My Love!'' did better, although neither "Me and Your Mama" or "Redbone" ever hit the top 40 in the US.

* Music/WeirdAlYankovic was destined to have a few examples, considering he's had six platinum and three gold albums while having only three top 40 hits in the US. The crowning example would be 1999's ''Running With Scissors'' for going platinum and not having anything chart in the top 100.

Added DiffLines:

* The only Music/GreenDay albums to have their songs reach the Billboard Top 40 are ''Music/AmericanIdiot'' (which produced three Top 20 singles) and ''Music/TwentyFirstCenturyBreakdown'' (which had "21 Guns" and "Know Your Enemy" both reach the Top 40) despite the fact that almost all of their albums have sold extremely well. Particularly notable is ''Music/{{Dookie}}'', which went Diamond (ten million copies sold) and never had any of its songs hit the Hot 100.

In TheFifties and TheSixties, albums were often perceived as secondary to hit singles. This began to change when groups like Music/TheBeatles and Music/TheBeachBoys started to produce albums which tried to avoid AlbumFiller and make every song count. TheBritishInvasion helped, thanks to the then-common practice of excluding hit singles from albums.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/SirMixALot's first album, ''Swass'', went platinum. This was an impressive achievement, considering that hip-hop was a fairly new genre at the time and Sir-Mix-A-Lot was on an independent label. However, the only song from it to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 was "Posse on Broadway", which peaked at #70.

Also an obvious trend in the career of a LongRunner artist. Consider discography pages on TheOtherWiki; album sales are usually consistent or improve with time while hit singles eventually trail off as more airtime is given to new performers.
