TGJ Replay: Rihanna’s ‘A Girl Like Me’

Rihanna-a-girl-like-me-thatgrapejuice

Welcome back to TGJ Replay!

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ features, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s newest reflective segment to act as a written quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday. Unlike its TGJ retrospective predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.

Now, as her faithful #Navy await official news on the release of “R8″ – the eighth full length studio album from music’s leading bad gal Rihanna, we pon de replay with an ode to her sophomore effort ‘A Girl Like Me.’

“Everything on this album is from a female’s perspective.  This album is very personal to me and everything’s coming from my point of view…” – Rihanna, 2006

It’s a good time to Nicki Minaj right now.

As her ‘PinkPrint’ release has passed the Gold mark in the U.S. and etches closer to platinum, the rapper/singer/songwriter is also set to shine on the big screen via the third installment of the Ice Cube-led ‘Barbershop’ franchise.

Now, as if that isn’t enough to celebrate, all eyes are now on her as she has notched her 65th Hot 100 hit with the Meek Mill & Chris Brown-helmed ‘All Eyes On You.’  The chart triumph sees the rapstress slide in just a few steps closer to leading the pack of “most Hot 100 entries” by any female…of any genre (only Taylor Swift & Aretha Franklin have more as we reported here).

Elsewhere, charts reveal Swift isn’t the only country diva at risk of seeing her Hot 100 record threatened. For, in addition to setting a new chart record this week, Bruno Mars‘ monster hit ‘Uptown Funk’ is just two weeks away from upstaging Leann Rimes‘How Do I Live’ in a big way.

Wondering how?  Get the scoop and full chart check below:

Did You Miss It?: Lil’ Scrappy Suffers Backlash After Slamming Caitlyn Jenner/Transgender Community

(photo source)

While the world gets ready for the 2015 ESPY Awards and the courage celebration of famed athlete turned reality star Caitlyn Jenner, there’s one person she shouldn’t expect to get a standing O from on July 15th ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Lil Scrappy.

The ‘No Problem’ hitmaker has quite the problem on his hands after a recent interview with our buds at VladTV saw him go all the way in on the transgender community – namely Jenner – when he proclaimed:

 ”For the world of young kids, for the world of young little boys, stick to what you were made to be. If you got a penis, be a penis,” he said.

Citing racism as part of the reason Caitlyn has been so accepted, Scrappy continued:

”No Black man can stand up and say, ‘You know, my whole life I felt like a woman, but I was just holding it down for my kids and my b-tch.’ We say that sh-t, n—gga, we’d get assassinated– by us [other black people]. We [black people] don’t play that sh-t.”

See the interview below that has the LGBTQ community and supporters in an uproar:

Similar to FOX’s ‘Empire’ after it, Tyler Perry‘s ‘The Haves & the Have Nots’ has experienced an unprecedented and continuous ride upward since its debut on the Oprah Winfrey’s OWN.  And, if the response to last night’s season premiere is any indication, that ride will not be slowing any time soon.

Fans apparently couldn’t wait to get their eyes and ears back on the delectable soap opera as its return to screens not only clocked the highest viewership in the series’ tenure, but in the network’s history overall.
