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.

Today, we’ll get down with ‘I Wanna Be Down’ – the official inaugural single of R&B siren Brandy.

Joining rank with the likes of Boyz II Men, Madonna, Janet Jackson, and more, tuck in below to point out the familiar faces and find out where ‘Down’ hit its highest note on the pop charts:
