Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, 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 press play again on ‘Together Again’ – the second single from Janet Jackson‘s #1 album, ‘Velvet Rope.’  Holding down the top spot on the Hot 100 this week 19 years ago, the house-inspired tune was birthed after the death of Jackson’s dear friend who succumbed to AIDS.  Becoming her 8th overall #1 single on the tally, ‘Together’ went on to platinum status and has endured as a fan favorite from her prized discography.

Tuck in below to see who joined Jan in the top 25 this week in 1998:

Pregnant Principle! Janet Jackson Spotted In London

Superstar Reportedly Due Any Day Now

jj-1

The Queen of Pop is almost ready to… pop!

Pregnant superstar Janet Jackson is reportedly due any day now.

However, that’s not stopping the 50-year-old from running errands in the run-up to her baby’s big arrival.

The ‘Unbreakable’ singer was recently snapped flower shopping in London, where it’s believed she’ll be delivering her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana.

It’s reported that the Qatar-bred billionaire spends a lot of time working in the UK capital, hence his and Janet’s joint decision to station their growing family there presently.

Word on the curb is that, though the shots have surfaced now, they were actually taken on Nov 1st. Could baby Jackson-Al Mana already be here? Knowing how secretive Janet is, it’s not a far fetched notion.

Whatever the case, it’s awesome to see her glowing and gorgeous. See what we mean below…

Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.

This week, as today’s generation of stars struggle to find conversational platforms to promote themselves and their material, we return to 1997 to revisit one of Janet Jackson‘s conversations with Oprah Winfrey on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’

Originally set up to discuss her project ‘The Velvet Rope’, the ladies’ interview soon saw them dig deep into Jackson’s personal struggles and insecurities.

One of them being her feeling that she was undeserving of the fame her older brother Michael had generated for her with his own Pop career.

By the end, Winfrey and her audience taught the then 31-year-old entertainer a life lesson we’re sure has remained with her since.
