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’re going back to 2006’s ‘Too Little Too Late’ – the first single from pop powerhouse JoJo‘s sophomore album, ‘The High Road.’ Produced by Vincent Herbert and others, ‘Late’ was the long-awaited kickoff to the singer’s second era after her 2004 platinum debut wielded the hits, ‘Leave (Get Out),’ the Bow Wow-assisted ‘Baby It’s You,’ and more. Released in mid-August 2006, by late September of that year the tune had broken the record for the biggest jump into the top three when it jumped from #66 to #3 (a record since conquered by Kelly Clarkson).
Found in that exact spot this week 11 years ago, the feat not only helped JoJo lead her second album to Gold status, but it remains the highest mark she’s hit on the Hot 100 over her entire career. Tuck in below to relive the magic of ‘Too Little Too Late’ and see who else among your favorites joined the belter on this week’s TGJ Chart Rewind:
