Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 2007 #TBT

Rihanna Continues To Make A Splash On Charts With 'Umbrella'

Rihanna-thatgrapejuice-umbrella-#tbt

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 tip our hats and raincoats to Rihanna Fenty‘s 2007 megahit ‘Umbrella.’  Originally written for (but later passed on by) pop princess Britney Spears, the tune found a home on Rih’s tertiary release, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad.’ A loss for Spears, but just the right move for Fenty as the Dream-produced cut and its accompanying music video came as a visual and sonic reintroduction of sorts for the Bajan beauty (who up to that point was known for her fairly safe radio offerings).

Calling to mentor/labelhead Jay-Z to assist with the percussion driven pop number, the song was an out-of-the-box success thanks for its catchy guitar riffs and, of course, that signature repetitious “ella ella ey ey.”  Going on to be the best-performing single of 2007 (only behind Beyonce‘s ‘Irreplaceable’), ‘Umbrella’ would not only garner Grammys, global critical acclaim, an impressive reign at #1 on the Hot 100 and help its parent album to #1 on the Billboard 200, but most importantly – in the grand scheme – it successfully transitioned the star to the bad gal we know today.

Hop down below the jump to replay ‘Umbrella’ and see if any of your faves from today accompanied Rih on the Hot 100’s upper rankings this week 9 years ago:

Report: Rihanna Now Has The Most Canadian Hot 100 #1s In History

Rihanna-Vogue-US-2016-rihanna-thatgrapejuice canadian. jpg

If for some strange reason you thought Rihanna‘s reign was “local,” then you’ll probably be equally surprised to learn that her domination of the Canadian Hot 100 is almost as extensive as her rule over its American counterpart.

In fact, up until this charting week, the island beauty and her gal pal Katy Perry were tied for the most #1s over the chart’s history.

Well…that was then.

For, with the ascension of her Calvin Harris-crafted hit ‘This Is What You Came For’ to the top spot this week, Riri came for claim of Canadian Hot 100 queen.  Curious to know how many she has to her name?

Taylor Swift, Rihanna, & Adele Lead Women on Forbes ‘Highest Paid Celebs’ List

2016 List Lacks Serious Girl Power

rihanna thatgrapejuice forbest celebrity 100

A sure firestarter between fan groups of today’s top artists, Forbes released its annual ‘Highest Paid Celebrities’ list recently.

Calculated from data of revenue generated between June 2015 to June 2016, the list is comprised of 100 celebrities across all entertainment mediums (movies, television, sports entertainment, music, etc) who are raking in the dough in front of and behind the scenes.

And, while ‘Tears On My Guitar’ singer Taylor Swift may be crying tears of joy from seeing her name at #1 on the list for her whopping $170 million earned over the last year, the real tears may be shed over the absence of women on the list.  In fact, the list of 100 celebs only has 15 women – a point even Forbes itself noted:

“[The ‘highest paid celebrities’ list] is comprised 85% of men—who earned a combined $4.2 billion, compared to the women’s $892.5 million. The imbalance reflects the gender pay gap endemic across industries–and national borders.”

See where your favorite diva o’ the day landed on the list:
