5th October Billboard reports in the Chart Beat column that "... Moment is the 59th No. 1. hit for RCA during the rock era. But in those 47 years and three months, only five solo female artists have had No.1. singles on RCA. The first was Kay Starr, who had just moved to Nipper's imprint from Capitol when she recorded Rock and Roll Waltz, RCA's first No. 1 of the rock era. In 1963, Little Peggy March became RCA's second solo female artist to have a No. 1 hit, when I Will Follow Him made her a household name almost overnight. It would be another 18 years before another solo female artist on RCA would reach the summit. In 1981, Dolly Parton had a No. 1. hit with 9-5."
