The pop charts have yielded tons of one-hit wonders over the years, and it's always interesting to see where some of these artists end up. For example, these 5 artists have managed to maintain pretty steady careers in music, or at the very least not blow all of their money.
Bobby McFerrin - "Don't Worry Be Happy"
McFerrin was already an accomplished jazz musician before his big break, and he continues to work in the recording industry. He's performed with dozens of orchestras, and even wrote the theme song for The Cosby Show.
Sir Mix-A-Lot - "Baby Got Back"
Fun fact: "Baby Got Back" was actually banned from MTV and several radio stations upon release, and even despite that, it sold over 2 million copies. Mix-A-Lot was able to keep a bunch of that money thanks to some solid contract negotiations, and he's been rich ever since.
Sinead O'Connor - "Nothing Compares 2 U"
Before her infamous shot against the Pope on SNL, O'Connor was a genuine star thanks to this song. Even after her public panning, she's made a successful career for herself in the music industry.
House of Pain / Everlast - "Jump Around"
The band made it huge with "Jump Around," and Everlast has had a pretty extensive solo career since then, releasing 7 albums that have done pretty respectably.
