Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2001 #FBF

Destiny's Child's 'Bootylicious' Bounces To #1
Published: Friday 4th Aug 2017 by Rashad

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 shake things up with Destiny’s Child‘s fourth and final #1 on the Hot 100, ‘Bootylicious.’   Featuring a thunderous sample of Rock goddess Stevie Nicks‘ 1982 hit ‘Edge of Seventeen,‘ the tune – released in late May 2001 as the official second single from the group’s third album ‘Survivor’ – found itself bounced to #1 not even 3 months later.

Most famously earning an entry in the dictionary, ‘Bootylicious’ would go on to remain a DC3 favorite well-beyond the trio’s official disbandment in 2005.  In fact, many may not know that some 16 years later ‘Bootylicious’ remains the last song by a girl group to top the Hot 100!

As we ‘cut a rug’ to the 2001 bop, tuck in below to see what familiar faces joined them in the top 25 this week 16 years ago:

    This was the week that mariah tried to pull that 49 cents single scam with her glitter megaflop lmao. and still didn’t go to #1 lmao.

      a flop to Mariah standards only. Cool.
      3 M copies WW
      The BestSelling Song of the year despite Britney, DC, Alicia Keys, Christina, Michael Jackson, Nsync, Backstreet Boys, and glitter being released around 9/11.
      For Destinys Child not having the best selling song of the year with radio on their side and a 12 million selling album is pathetic and doesn’t need to be compared to Mariah. Mariah is and always has been a Star who shines in her own lane. I also f*** with Destinys Child so don’t come at me with any s*** either.

        Get over it Destiny’s Child made it & Mariah was #2!! ✌🏽😂

        I honestly dont care either way as I was only 9 at the time. Only you would know what it was like to live the last 2 centuries because your memory is so old & detailed from over 15 yrs ago. Its just interesting that you felt the need to bring Mariah into this awesome post about the awesome group called Destinys Child. Maturity sure doesn’t come with age.

        DanYiel Ridiculous. What have Destiny´s Child done that Mariah hasn´t achieved? lol

    • MUSICHEAD August 4, 2017

      It wasn’t a scam. Tommy Matolla pushed Bootylicious up a week early to block Mariah from #1 and to punish her for leaving Sony. Virgin retaliated by slashing the Loverboy single to 49 cents to boost the single. Columbia then slashed Bootylicious to 49 cents too. In the end, Loverboy outsold Bootylicious that week (180,000 vs 130,000) but Bootylicious had more airplay and ended up at #1.

  2. Hmmm… August 4, 2017

    I fckn hate that despacito song. Ugh. Lord why.

    Destiny’s Child’s Bootylicious single was actually supposed to hit retail a week later but Tommy Matolla moved it up a week to cut into Mariah’s Loverboy sales. Had he not done that, Loverboy would have been another #1 for Mariah. Loverboy did reach #1 on the r&b/hip hop 100 tho.
