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.
