458e09091bab91880cc124d75bd5f6e5 TGJ Replay:  Waiting To Exhale Soundtrack (Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige)

Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.  So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits.  Today, we put the spindle on the star-studded, 7x platinum (U.S.) soundtrack to the 90s ultimate chick flick ‘Waiting To Exhale’…

The R&B diva lived up to her billing last night in this fierce ensemble; posing it up ahead of a sell-out show in Wichita, Kansas.

After a brief break from the spotlight, it feels like Brandy is not just back but also here to stay.

The Vocal Bible serves up a chapter and verses in fierceness in the latest issue of PYNK magazine. And while her looks are as luscious as ever, it’s her accompanying interview that resonated with us most.

B-Rocka, who is presently garnering praise for her role in hit Tyler Perry movie ‘Temptation’, waxes honest about the sales of her latest album ‘Two Eleven’, whether she’d do reality TV again, fellow R&B divas Kelly Rowland and Beyonce, and much more.

Cover Star: Caleb Rekcah Redoes Brandy’s ‘Wildest Dreams’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star comes from Youtube beau Caleb Rekcah. Watch as he lays into an acoustic cover of Brandy‘s ‘Wildest Dreams’ – the second single from her critically acclaimed set ‘Two Eleven’:

We appreciate singers who can put their own twists on tunes without taking away from it.  Caleb did just that.  Softly cooing in the beginning of his cover (giving it a “lullaby” feel almost), the second verse saw him really ramp up and bring the song home.

While maintaining the vulnerability of tone the song calls for, Rekcah opted to avoid B-rocka’s rollercoaster (and oft inimitable) ride of runs and melisma, instead inserting his own blend.

Bravo sir.
