Rockabilly singer Ronnie Self had a somewhat unsuccessful solo career, his only charting single was Bop-A-Lena in 1958. He was also a very talented songwriter, a few of his songs were big pop hits for Brenda Lee - a top-charting singer from the 1960's. Lee was one of the first pop singers to gain a major international following. In the 1960's Lee had 47 charting hits - the only performers to surpass that were Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Ray Charles. Her record of nine consecutive top ten Billboard hits remained unbroken until Madonna topped it in 1986. Lee was first noticed in 1950 when, after winning a singing contest, she made her fist radio appearance at age six. In 1955, at eleven years old, an unplanned television appearance landed her a first contract on a regular TV show. After a few months she had landed a record deal with Decca Records. In 1959 Lee's ninth single Sweet Nothin's peaked at number four in the US. In 2012 rapper Kanye West sampled the line "uh-huh, honey" from that song for his song Bound 2, off his Yeezus album.
