Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 2006 #FBF

Justin Timberlake Celebrates First #1 On Singles Chart


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’ll take it back to ‘Sexy Back’ – the inaugural chart-topper from former NSYNC leader Justin Timberlake.  The singer/songwriter – whose 2002 debut album, ‘Justified,’ established him as an internationally recognized solo act – braved the sophomore slump in 2006 with his second album ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds.’  The first taste of his “futuristic” offerings?  ‘SexyBack.’
Produced by Timbaland, the synth-heavy, funk-inspired tune was released in summer 2006 and skyrocketed to the top spot in its third week (where it remained for a total of 7 weeks).  Found atop the tally this week ten years ago, tuck in below to see who accompanied Timberlake in the top 25 in this week’s #FBF Chart Rewind:

Tinashe Teams With Timbaland For Delayed Sophomore Album


Tinashe‘s sophomore album may have been titled ‘Joyride’ – yet the journey to its release has been anything but.

The follow-up to her 2014 debut ‘Aquarius’ has been teased since late last Summer. Yet, almost a year on, it’s still missing in action.

To complicate matters, the 23-year-old singer has not only revealed that she feels the album is done, she embarked on and completed an American tour in support of the project – which, of course, is still not out. Muddying the waters even more is the fact that the LP has thus far spawned several songs including ‘Player (ft. Chris Brown)’ and ‘Party Favors.’

In recent months, the rising star has maintained a silence of sorts. However, it’s becoming clear she hasn’t been relaxing. She’s been working with super-producer Timbaland.
