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.
Now, let’s blast back to this week in 2003. There, you’ll not only find 20 of the top 25 were Urban-kissed, but you’ll also find ‘I Miss You’ – the posthumously released single by late R&B songstress Aaliyah. Reaching its Hot 100 peak this week that year, the song – among those originally recorded for but left off of her self-titled third LP – was remastered and selected to kick off her 2002-released compilation/greatest hits package ‘I Care 4 U.’
Its heartfelt accompanying music video, featuring appearances from Jay Z, DMX, Missy Elliott, Toni Braxton, and many many more, helped propel it to #3 on the Hot 100 (where it peaked). It was her third and last single to peak within the chart’s top 5.
