As the world continues to celebrate the life and music of the late Prince, fans of the late singer Whitey Houston are to learn that a magnifying glass is to be placed on the circumstances around her death by the National Enquirer.
Whitney Houston‘s estate has learned that a brand new documentary is being crafted to celebrate the late singer’s life.
Full story below…
Today marks what would have been the 23rd birthday of Bobbi Kristina Brown – Whitney Houston‘s only child.
Yet, with her passing at the age of 22 last July, today has instead seen the final results from her autopsy unsealed – at the request of several media outlets.
More on the unfortunate story below…
Album Continues Chart Domination While 'Hello' Falls On Hot 100
She may have said “goodbye” to the perch of the Hot 100 this week thanks to Justin Bieber, but on the album side of charts, there’s no dethroning Adele.
Indeed, shifting another 194,000 units (164k pure sales), the ‘Hello’ hitmaker greeted yet another week atop the Billboard 200. Bringing her overall count to 7.6 million in 7 weeks, ’25’s reign over the album charts comes as the longest consecutive run by a female in nearly 30 years.
“…25 becomes the first album by a woman to spend its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart since 1987 (and the first since Nielsen Music’s electronically-scanned point-of-sale data began powering the chart in 1991).
The only other album by a woman to chart its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 was Whitney Houston’s second album, Whitney, which bowed atop the list dated June 17, 1987, and ruled for 11 straight frames (through the chart dated Sept. 5).”
No stranger to ruffling the feathers of Whitney Houston fans (click here to read more on that), only time will tell if the Brit-born diva will be snatching another title from the legend’s list of accolades. Until then, get your weekly Billboard 200 and Hot 100 chart check below:
Whitney Houston Debuts At #1 With Last Chart-Topper 'Exhale'
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 to ‘Exhale (Shoop Shoop),’ the 11th and last Hot 100 chart-topper of music’s premier diva Whitney Houston.
Lifted from the ‘Waiting To Exhale’ soundtrack (which celebrated its 20th anniversary this month), the tune delivered Whit’s first ever #1 debut on the tally – a feat added to her already impressively decorated Hot 100 resume. Knocking then “rival” Mariah Carey down to #2, ‘Shoop’ may have known brief tenure at the top (as Carey returned to #1 the week after with her record-breaking hit ‘One Sweet Day’), but it still made its mark on record books for having the longest run at #2 in the history of the Billboard Hot 100.
Tuck in below and tell us your fave song from the top 25 of Billboard’s Hot 100 this week in 1995…
'I Will Always Love You' Singer's Fans Demand Billboard Provide "Context"
There are only a handful of artists in the history of ever whose careers can even be mentioned in the same sentence with diva supreme Whitney Houston. Her illustrious Hot 100 and Billboard 200 resume read of almost untouchable heights and more records set than can be adequately mentioned in one article (“first female to debut at #1 on Billboard 200,” “first artist to sell 1 million albums in one week,” “first and only artist to have 7 consecutive #1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100” merely touch the tip the iceberg).
But, as the age old adage goes: ‘records are made to be broken.’
For, just two weeks ago, Adele said ‘Hello’ to the Hot 100 and history books as her long-awaited return brought with it a massive 1.1 million sold in just one week. Seeing her name penciled atop the list of ‘most singles sold in one week’ tally, the song’s performance was nearly double that of former record-holder Flo-Rida‘s 636,000 sold for his 2009 single ‘Right Round.’ The impressive chart triumph was widely celebrated, that is, until some outlets began pitting its success against Houston’s signature hit ‘I Will Always Love You’ – which held the overall record for most singles sold in one week at 632,000.
Then, Nippy fans cried foul. The premise of their argument is simple: Billboard records should have context…
Bobby Brown is making plans…and they include the lives and deaths of his ex-wife Whitney Houston and their daughter Bobbi Kristina.
