Are you

CHAKA KHAN

Reasoning:

This looks like a fraction; let's try dividing the top by the bottom.

There are 2 '9890's; could be 'E'? 9890/5=1978, which is a year within the last century... promising. 43516/1978=22=V; looks like we are on track.
Continuing: 43516=V, 27692=N, 9890=E, 49450=Y, 25714=M, 1978=A, 45494=W, ?, 29670=O, 9890=E,35604=R

Giving:

V N E Y M A W O E R

After a lot of searching and anagramming, I stumbled across the following anagram:

E V E R Y W O M A N

A search reveals that according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27m_Every_Woman:
""I'm Every Woman" is a song by American singer Chaka Khan, released as her debut solo single from her first album, Chaka (1978)."
1978 matches the year we were looking for, and the singer's name, CHAKA KHAN, fits the final blanks, so our answer is found!

    $\begingroup$ Feedback: all was good, though I would recommend a title that is either more interesting, useful, or unique. For example, in this multi-step puzzle, a title like "All them girls" would help clue that step 2 is on track, as well as be more memorable than "Who is that" and your name. $\endgroup$
