Rihanna, Pink, Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande & More Unite For Women’s March

Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and Pink are just a few of the names that joined millions across the globe in solidarity for the Women’s March.

Purposefully timed to take place the day after Donald Trump‘s inauguration as US President, the rallies sought to celebrate womanhood and remind of the glaring inequalities that are still a reality. The latter being a core focus of the campaign given Trump’s sexually charged and degrading comments about women.

Beyond lending their name to the cause, the ladies rolled up their sleeves and took part.

Hot Shots: Alicia Keys Ditches ‘Makeup Free Movement’ For ‘Allure’ Magazine

Singer Dishes on Beyonce, Solange, & More Behind the Scenes

Looks like ‘Karma’ singer Alicia Keys’ anti-makeup campaign has finally come full circle, if her February spread in ‘Allure’ magazine is anything to judge by.

In what (reportedly) comes as her first editorial wearing makeup since Spring 2016, the songstress took to the fashion mag to dish on everything from president elect Donald Trump to women’s rights, activism, and even played a fun game of “would you rather?” (featuring names such as Beyonce, Solange, Tupac, and more).

Retro Rewind: 10 Albums That “Turn 10” In 2017 #FBF

Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Kanye West, & More Make Our “Faves” List

collage-albums-released-in-2007

Following a year that gifted pop music lovers game and/or career-changing albums like Justin Timberlake‘s ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Back To Basics,’ Beyonce‘s ‘BDay,’ Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To  Black,’ Ciara‘s ‘The Evolution,’ and Fergie‘s ‘The Dutchess,’ 2007 had some big shoes to fill.

For many of the artists who stood to the challenge (see:  Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Jay Z, etc.) the results may not have matched the commercial response of their previous efforts (or collectively those of the big named releases the year prior), but critically the class of 2007 wielded what many consider some of their (if not their) best work(s) to date.

As we kick off 2017, let’s flashback to 2007 to ode 10 game and/or career-changing albums that turned 10 this year.  Your gateway to feeling “old” awaits below:

2016 Year In Review: Flop of the Pops (Usher, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, More)

alicia-keys-thatgrapejuice-flop-britney-spears-billboard-2016-year-review

Scribbled in history books for some good and not-so-good reasons, 2016 brought with it some of modern music’s most memorable moments.  Now, as the year draws to a close, TGJ is reflecting on 31 moments that rocked – and to some degree shaped – the Urban and Pop musical landscape as we know it.

Now, we’ll reflect on the collection of albums and singles whose barks were certainly bigger than their bites.  For, considering the hype that preceded them, great expectations were placed on their respective commercial performances.

Sadly, they failed to meet them…

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2007

Alicia Keys Ascends To #1 With Hit Single ‘No One’

alicia-keys-thatgrapejuice-no-one

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.

For this one we’ll press replay on ‘No One’ – the 2007 #1 hit from Grammy-winning songbird Alicia Keys.  The first single from her third studio album, ‘As I Am,’ by late November that year the tune had already helped hoist its parent project to historic heights on the Billboard 200 (best first week sales for any female R&B singer).  However, this week 9 years ago it saw its own ascension to #1 after booting Chris Brown‘s ‘Kiss Kiss’ out of the top spot this week in 2007.  Going on to earn ‘Best R&B Song’ honors at the next year’s Grammys, “No One” entered history books as the most listened to song on U.S. radio in 2008 and, as of time reported, hovers just over the 4x platinum mark.

Tuck in below to find out who joined Keys in the top 25 this week in 2007:

Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Alicia Keys’ New Album ‘Here’ Hits #2

Keys’ 6th Studio Effort Claims Top Spot on ‘R&B Albums’ Chart

alicia-keys-here-album-thatgrapejuice

Despite the absence of a hit single to lead it, Alicia Keys’ new album, ‘Here,’ still managed to make an impressive debut on the Billboard 200.

Fending off new offerings from Hip Hop hitmakers Rae Sremmurd, the star-studded ‘Trolls’ soundtrack, Common, and more, the Keys’ project – featuring tunes ‘Blended Family,’ ‘Holy War,’ and ‘In Common’ – debuted at #2 and marks the singer/songwriter’s 7th top 2 debut (five of those entries debuted at #1).

And, while the album’s standing next week will be interesting to see as ‘Here’ also marks her lowest first week sales to date (of a studio album), we’ll celebrate the accomplishment while we can. Tuck in below to see where everyone else landed on this week’s refreshed TGJ Chart Check:

Alicia Keys Covers ELLE’s Feminism Issue

alicia-keys-elle-2016-tgj

Alicia Keys cuts a striking figure a-front of ELLE‘s December 2016 edition, which also dubs as its Feminism issue.

It’s an apt placement for the critically acclaimed songbird, who has been touting female empowerment during her ‘HERE’ album campaign.

Indeed, like on the cover shot here, Keys has opted to sport little to no make-up in a bid to encourage women to love themselves.

Critics seem to not only love the movement but also love the LP it promotes. Its sales, however, haven’t been the most encouraging.

Still, when an act is as respected as Alicia, she’s only ever one right song away from making a splash all over again.

Watch the video for her latest single ‘Blended Family (What You Do For Love)’ after the jump…
