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:
