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 get to know Alicia Keys’ hit 2003 single ‘You Don’t Know My Name’ all over again. Produced by Kanye West, ‘Name’ – a 70s-inspired, doo-wop cut – featured background vocals from then-little known singer/songwriter John Legend. Kicking off the singer’s highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Diary of Alicia Keys’ (click here to read our full ode to that project), the tune was a mainstay in the top 10 on the Hot 100 at its popularity height and eventually nested at #3 where it peaked this week 14 years ago.
Tuck in below to reminisce and see who joined her in the Hot 100 this week in 2004:
