Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 1996

R. Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ Makes Hot 100 Debut

i-believe-i-can-fly-flashback-r-kelly-thatgrapejuice

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 believe it’s time to replay R. Kelly‘s biggest hit, ‘I Believe I Can Fly.’  The inspirational tune, featured on the Michael Jordan-led semi-animated film ‘Space Jam,’ made its debut on the Hot 100 this week 20 years ago.  Going on to serious chart glory in the following year, ‘Fly’ – despite never soaring to the top of the Billboard singles’ chart (held at bay from #1 by the historic reign of Toni Braxton‘s signature tune ‘Unbreak My Heart’) – would go on to be Kelly’s most successful release to date.

Hovering right under the 2x platinum mark, ‘Fly’ went on to earn the singer 3 Grammys at the 1998 ceremony.  Relive the song and tuck in below to see who joined Kelly this week on the Hot 100:

R. Kelly Shocks Fans By Claiming He Had A Crush…On His Mother

r.kelly-that-grape-juice-2016-191910

The internet is proving to be R. Kelly‘s worst nightmare.

Arguably the reason he is no longer able to remain undisturbed by legal woes once shrouded in mystery, the resource has given music lovers access to information that paints a very disturbing picture of the R&B singer.

Click here to find out how.

So, after he was confronted by claims of his alleged predatory behaviour towards underaged girls, the entertainer attempted to give fans deeper insight into his own life by opening up on his difficult childhood.

Alas, this did little to move fans of the late R&B singer Aaliyah who was 15 when he allegedly coerced her into a romantic relationship behind her parents’ back.

This week things got worse for the star.

Why?
