Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 1996 #FBF

2Pac Reigns With Hit ‘How Do U Want It’ (featuring KC & Jojo)

2Pac - How Do U Want It - (Front)-thatgrapejuice

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.
Now, just a day after what would’ve been the 45th birthday of rap legend Tupac Shakur, we revisit his first and only #1 hit – double A side single ‘How Do U Want It/California Love’ (found on his critically and commercially acclaimed album ‘All Eyez On Me.’)  Ousting fellow rap stars Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s hit ‘Crossroads’ from the top spot this month in 1996, 2pac saw his Quincy Jones-sampled jam bolt to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with the assistance of KC & JoJo (of 90’s R&B group Jodeci) and a raunchy music video equipped adult entertainment stars, stripper poles, and more.
Going on to garner a Grammy nod at the 1997 ceremony, ‘Want’ continues to be one of Pac’s most enduring numbers from his short, yet storied career.  Now, as we anxiously await his long-awaited biopic (some 20 years after his death), we push play on ‘Want It’ and get our jam on this flashback Friday.  Join us below:
