Ever keen to broaden our musical scope, recent months have seen That Grape Juice venture into a number of new musical landscapes including, most recently, gospel.
Spearheaded by well-received interviews with gospel singers Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Kierra Sheard, Dorinda Clark Cole, Israel Houghton, and more, TGJ is now offering readers ‘The Overflow’ – a collection of the top gospel-themed news stories from the week.
Tuck in below for the latest news on R. Kelly, Kirk Franklin, Earnest Pugh, Mali Music, and newcomer Jonathan McReynolds:
When Kelly Rowland‘s jaw-dropping single ‘Dirty Laundry’ premiered last month, many drew comparisons to R. Kelly‘s iconic brand of confessionals (see: ‘Down Low Double Life’, ‘Trapped In The Closet’). So who better than the Pied Piper himself to call on for the official “Part 2″ remix of the cut?
Featuring all new lyrics from Ms. Kelly and – of course – R. Kelly, the ‘Dirty Laundry’ “sequel” awaits after the jump…
Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past. So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.

As reported here, R&B king R. Kelly is set to unveil 32 more chapters of his prized ‘Trapped In the Closet‘ series. Originally debuting in the early noughties, the hip hop musical has seen its storyline take many-a-twist and turn leaving viewers wanting more at every end.
Late 2012 saw the ‘Bump & Grind’ beau tease fans with a peek at ‘Chapter 23′ of
neverending lengthy collection, now Kelly has taken to his official Youtube page to unveil a trailer for ten new installments.

Fans of ‘Dive In’ divo Trey Songz know he’s currently making a splash at box offices worldwide on his ‘Chapter V’ world tour (featuring Miguel & Elle Varner).
As recent pit stops have seen him on our side of the pond, Songz was spotted this week with the U.K.’s Tim Westwood to dish on the tour, his latest album, venture into movies, and more.
Never one to hold back, when quizzed on his buried beef with R&B king R. Kelly, the ‘Panty Droppa’ dropped info on the real reason he was ‘frustrated’ with Kellz – citing the ‘Bump N’ Grind’ crooner’s use of autotune among reasons for his frustration.

‘Southern Hospitality’ hitmaker Ludacris is treating fans to new guests aboard his Urban hit ‘Representin’.
As fans have fallen in love with the song’s original version featuring Destiny’s Child alum Kelly Rowland, it looks like Luda is looking to revamp the track from a completely male perspective – calling on reinforcement in the form of fellow hitmakers R. Kelly and rapper Fabolous.
The re-up, which sees R. Kelly on the chorus as Fabolous spits over the track’s second verse, was unveiled today. How does it stack up against the original? You tell us below:
