Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.
So, just as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’ allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.
This week we’ll go to ‘There You Go’ – the debut single from pop powerhouse P!nk. Written by Xscape‘s Kandi Burruss and P!nk herself, the tune served as the first release from the latter’s inaugural album, ‘Can’t Take Me Home’ (read our ode to the full album by clicking here).
The songstress and her Urban-inspired pop tune were welcomed by critics as a much needed departure from the wealth of vocally incapable pop offerings of the day. Rebellious and spunky, ‘Go’ went to the upper dectet of the Billboard Hot 100 in no time. Eventually peaking at #7, this week in 2000 saw the tune maintain its perch for a second rung before eventually slipping out of the top 10. Not only serving as an unforgettable introduction to the singer/songwriter who – unlike many of her contemporaries of the day – has stood the test of time, ‘Go’ also helped ‘Home’ hit the 2x platinum mark when all was said and done.
Tuck in below to see who else joined her in the Hot 100 this week 17 years ago:
