Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2002 #TBT

Missy Elliott Enjoys Hot 100 Peak of ‘Work It’

work-it-thatgrapejuice-missy-fbf-tbt

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.

This week we’re working on trying to keep still while listening to ‘Work It’ – the lead single from Missy Elliott‘s 2002 album, ‘Under Construction’ (read more about it here).  Crafted by Elliott and longtime collaborator Timbaland, the synth-heavy bop leapt onto the mid-September charts of that year.  Barely a month later it reached the #2 spot where it would stay for a record 10 weeks.

Held at bay by Grammy-winning rapper Eminem and his #1 hit ‘Lose Yourself,’ ‘Work’s inability to top the Hot 100 hardly made it a failure.  With its charismatic video showing off Elliott’s jaw-dropping weight loss, creativity, and festive dance moves to help it, the tune went on to gain platinum status.

Relive the magic and tuck in below to see who joined Em and M.E. on the singles chart this week 14 years ago:

The Delusion Diaries: Iggy Azalea Compares Herself To Eminem

iggy-azalea-that-grape-juice

Cash spent on a radio may have bought her a hit or two, but Iggy Azalea‘s team may have to dig deeper into the pockets if they’re to buy the dose of reality their act is in dire need of.

For, after watching plans to turn the rapper into a album-selling rap superstar crash and burn, the label now finds themselves tasked with cleaning up the performer’s image before the release of her second studio album.

Alas, it seems the star has caught a serious case of the delusions, making their job just as tough as her luck on the Billboard 200.

What’s she done now?

Everybody Hates Iggy Azalea…But Why?

Has “winning” caused Iggy to lose hip hop’s respect?

iggy collage

Some of rap history’s biggest sellers, from Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross to Nelly, Pitbull, and Flo Rida have all had their rap (and street) credibility questioned at one point in their careers.  None listed, however, were rebuked with the intensity of criticism like that aimed at Iggy Azalea.

From barely a buzz to a bulls-eye, she went from obscurity to enemy #1 in just a year.

Besides the unique position of being a white female emcee from Australia who rapped with a southern U.S. accent, not much else surrounded the newcomer’s name initially. In fact, this time last year she seemed poised to take rank with the many other unsung female rappers trying to find a place in the male-dominated game.

Despite backing from one of the genre’s frontrunners (T.I.) and a number of well-prepared videos to boot, success would not knock on the rapstress’s door until the unveiling of the pop-cloaked number ‘Fancy’ and its ‘Clueless’-themed music video. In conjunction with a timely “assistant role” on rising pop starlet Ariana Grande‘s hit ‘Problem,’ Iggy, seemingly out of nowhere, was thrust to the top of mainstream music consciousness.

Undoubtedly a dream come true for any female rapper, especially a Caucasian one traipsing a path so many before her had failed (see:  Sarai, Kreayshawn), that dream would prove itself a nightmare as all but the very genre she pursued would openly embrace her.

Has “winning” caused Iggy to lose hip hop’s respect?
