Published: Thursday 16th Nov 2017 by Rashad

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, 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 run it back to 1995’s ‘Who Can I Run To’ – Xscape‘s hit remake of the 70’s R&B classic by The Jones Girls.  Lifted as the second single from the Atlantan quartet’s sophomore album, ‘Off the Hook,’ ‘Run,’ highlighted by their unmistakable, gospel-inspired harmonies, soared to and peaked at #8 this week 22 years ago.Helping lead its parent album to platinum status, the song – over   20 years later – continues to be a fan favorite as evidenced by live performances post-their long-awaited reunion.

Tuck in below to hear ‘Who Can I Run To’ and see who joined them in the top 25 this week in 1995:

    Damn almost the entire top 10 is black artist. We really didn’t appreciate a lot of these artist back then now we’re literally begging for music from them. Well except for Mariah Carey. She can keep all her new music.

      Rihanna can keep her entire career. She brought nothing special to the table. Well, her mediocrity will be a timeless example I guess lol

    Mariah´s musicality and vocals in Daydream era including Fantasy is something we hadn´t seen before and we have not seen since then. She truly is unique. No other. It was crazy the level her voice (along with the tremendous material penned by her) got to at that point. She sounded unreal.
