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’ll go back to our jam ‘Love Will Never Do’ – the 7th and final single from Janet Jackson‘s magnum opus ‘Rhythm Nation.’ Reaching the summit of the Hot 100 this week in 1991, the song knocked nemesis, Madonna, from the top spot with her controversial hit ‘Justify My Love.’ This feat, we’re sure, gave Jan’s fans added satisfaction (as if they didn’t already have enough to boast). For, ‘Love’ not only made the pop icon the only artist in history to achieve 7 top five singles from one album, it also gave her the distinct honor of being the only artist in history to have a #1 single over three different calendar years from one album.
Talk about iconic!
