Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 1998 #FBF

Spice Girls Say Hello To Their Last Top 20 Hit ‘Goodbye’

spice-girls-goodbye-thatgrapejuice-fbf-tbt-flashback-throwback

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

So, just 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 say “hello” to ‘Goodbye’ by 90s pop group The Spice Girls.  The first single the group ever released as a quartet (post the departure of “Ginger Spice” Geri Halliwel), the fab foursome stormed the Hot 100 this week with an impressive #11 premiere of the pop ballad.  A gem found on the group’s third album, ‘Forever,’ ‘Goodbye’ may have been greeted with fanfare following the hoopla of Geri’s exit, but that favorable response was short-lived.  Going on to be the Girls’ last top 20 run (to date) on the Hot 100, the tune peaked at the same position it debuted.  Yet, despite its short run in the upper rankings of the Billboard singles chart, it endures nearly two decades after its release as a fan favorite of the group’s list of colossal hits.

A timely ode as this week saw pop’s currently reigning girl group, Fifth Harmony, become 4th Harmony (for lack of better terms), tuck in below to remember the time in 1998 when the Girls said goodbye to Ginger…

Spice Girls Reunion: Mel C Confirms She Won’t Take Part / Explains Why

sg-2

Social media was sent into a frenzy earlier this year when news hit that The Spice Girls were reuniting.

It’s been 20 years since the iconic five-piece went from ‘Wannabe’s to the biggest band in the world. A fact which makes the present a fitting time to celebrate their career.

As reported though, not all members are willing a comeback – namely Victoria Beckham and Mel C.

Beckham’s lack of involvement in the proposed set of anniversary shows was confirmed from the get go, yet Sporty Spice’s attachment was billed as being in limbo.

In a new interview with The Love Magazine, the 42-year-old mother of one dispels confusion. She will indeed not be a part of Spice Girls GEM (which folk have since learned is an acronym for Geri/Emma/Mel).

Find out why below…

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 1997 #TBT

Spice Girls Continue Domination Of Hot 100 With Debut Single

spice girls thatgrapejuice #tbt
Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, just 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 wanna take you back to ‘Wannabe’ – the debut single from history-making Brit girlband Spice Girls.  After making a splash on the U.K. side of the pond in late 1996, the single was sent to test the waters in the U.S. at the top of the following year.  History would show the girls passed the test with flying colors.

Ending the extensive reign of Toni Braxton‘s ‘Unbreak My Heart,’ the funky song shot to the Hot 100’s top spot after only 5 weeks.  Lodged there for the 4 weeks that followed, ‘Wannabe’ may have catapulted the quintet into the pop stratosphere, but interestingly it would be their first and last time occupying the chart’s top slot.

Currently touted as one of the best-selling singles of all time by any female group, the pop cult classic also remains their signature tune.  Take a listen after the jump and see what other familiar faces you remember from the top 25 this week in 1997… (more…)

destinys-child-e1357984897934

It’s “Girl Groups” week over at our friends at Billboard!

After winning over readers with their celebration of the “biggest girl groups of all time” in February, the “Music Bible” is launching a week-long homage to diva syndicates of past and present.

Always a favorite talking point here at That Grape Juice HQ, we’ve decided to join in the honoring of “girl power” by getting your input on the first of the week’s tributes – ‘top 40 girl group songs of all time’.

Based solely on chart performance on the Hot 100 (and adjusted to weigh changes in music such as digital downloads, streaming, etc.), the likes of Destiny’s Child, SWV, Spice Girls, and more duke it out for top ranking.  As expected, fan favorites like TLC and The Supremes dominate the tally with multiple entries, but there are many surprises along the way.

See the R&B dominated list below and tell us:  are you surprised?

No More Spice: Victoria Beckham Vows Music Career Is Over

victoria-beckham-retire

The Spice Girls may be more of a catalogue act these days than contemporary chart-toppers, yet that hasn’t stopped their still-strong fanbase from hoping for a reunion. Especially with the ladies 20th anniversary looming.

However, it appears Posh Spice has other ideas. For, in a new interview with Vogue Paris about her successful foray into the world of fashion design, Victoria Beckham revealed that she’s officially “done” with music.

The revelation comes after years of speculation about Beckham’s alleged friction with the quintet’s other members – alleged friction that would intensify each time a “reunion” rumor or opportunity gathered steam.

VB’s words after the jump…

Must See: Geri Halliwell Performs Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ On Australia’s Got Talent

As proud purveyors of Pop, we love us some Spice Girls. Indeed, who doesn’t?

Yet, there comes a time when an artist is tasked with realizing that their commercial run has wrapped. Call it a “transition”, if you will.

Unfortunately for Spice’s Geri Halliwell, the memo hasn’t landed on her lap or, worse still, is being flat-out ignored.

Case, point, the 41-year-old’s performance of the group’s debut single ‘Wannabe’ on Australia’s Got Talent last night. The irony in the song choice and the fact Halliwell actually judges on the show is priceless.

See what we mean after the jump…
