79e3286873ae6792441343f0f192c00d TGJ Replay:  Janet Jacksons Damita Jo

After a lengthy break on the bench, ‘TGJ Replay’ is back!

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s newest retrospective segment - a written quest, if you will, to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.  As this weekend marks the 10th anniversary of her epic Super Bowl showing, today’s ‘Replay’ revisits ‘Damita Jo‘ – the ensuing era of pop icon Janet Jackson.

Cover Star: Fortunate Drop ‘Drunk In Love’ Cover [Must See!]

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is from Aussie male singing group Fortunate. Watch as the fab foursome knock Beyonce’s latest hit ‘Drunk In Love’ out of the park:

Intoxicating to say the least!  With flawless harmony on deck, the quartet took the bass driven Beyonce number and turned it into a sexy acoustic slow jam.  Steering clear of overdone melisma and opting out of inclusion on “team too much”, the fab foursome deliver what we think is the best cover yet of ‘Drunk In Love’.

For that we say bravo!
