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 it’s all about Grammy winning R&B diva Mya. The singer/songwriter saw her Sisqo-penned debut single, ‘It’s All About Me,’ make quite the splash on the Hot 100’s top 10 in mid-May 1998. Jumping to the #6 spot, the tune would continue enjoying its peak run there this week that year. The mid-tempo groove served as ample introduction to the triple threat songstress, whose seductive coo and fancy footwork would see her dance up the charts a number of times in the late 90s and early 2000s alongside the eras leading R&B teen sensations Brandy, Monica, and Aaliyah.
While the musical landscape has shifted from the Urban-dominated charts of the late nineties and early noughties, we still reminisce on the time where it was nothing to hear ‘All About Me’ bumping from radio speakers. Oh, the good old days (sigh).
Look below to find out who accompanied Mya on this week’s Hot 100 from 1998…
