3637d1c8c72d6eefa295eaef29adea6b TGJ Replay:  Brandys Afrodisiac

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 quest 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.  With the ten year mark swiftly approaching since its release, today’s ‘Replay’ goes back to ‘Afrodisiac’ – R&B beauty Brandy‘s 4th studio album:

Weigh In: How Does Shakira & Rihanna’s New Tune Stack Up Against Other Famous Diva Duets?

Screen shot 2014 01 13 at 4.31.16 PM Weigh In:  How Does Shakira & Rihannas New Tune Stack Up Against Other Famous Diva Duets?

Indeed, after 2013’s close saw former foes Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera joined forces for ‘Do What U Want’, music lovers kick their new year off getting cozy with ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ – the dynamo diva duet of Grammy-winning songstresses Shakira & Rihanna.

Launching what we hope is a year of diva double teams, the song inks its name aboard a long list of memorable collabos from the ladies of pop & R&B – collectively putting to rest rumors that women don’t work well together in the industry.  And, while the net (and we at TGJ) are still making up our minds on Shakira and Ri’s latest offering,  we can’t help but reflect on the ‘best of’ diva duets to see how the Roc Nation duo stack up.

Compiling a list of our favorite estrogen-tinged tag teams, tuck in below to see who made our tally and tell us your thoughts:

Screen shot 2013 12 07 at 12.25.55 AM Weigh In:  2014 Grammy Snubs & Surprises

 

It’s that time of year again!

Indeed, tonight saw the 2014 Grammy nominations unveiled as per usual of its nomination concert special weeks before the actual showing.  But, what comes with the ‘per usual’ showing are the jaw-dropping surprises, snubs, and all out “shut-outs” that accompany the annual spectacle.

Always a heated debate-starter, the coveted tally saw the likes of Christina Aguilera, Trey Songz, Janelle Monae, Chris Brown, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Brandy, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, India.Arie, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga all go without mention.

For Bieber – whose manager made headlines for his rant regarding his 2013 Grammy shutout – this would be a second-go-round despite consistently clocking some of the year’s biggest hits.

Tuck in below for a list of other surprises and snubs:
