Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2008 #TBT

Chris Brown’s ‘With You’ Re-Ascends To Hot 100 Peak

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’ll rewind to ‘With You’ – the third single from Chris Brown‘s sophomore album, ‘Exclusive.’  Produced by Stargate and written by Brown, Johnta Austin, and more, the folk-pop number was almost an instant hit for the young singer, flying to #2 just weeks after its unveiling.  Initially blocked from the top spot by Flo Rida‘s hit ‘Low,’ ‘With You’ fell down charts only to have a resurgence after some promotional efforts by Brown.  Still, despite some impressive live showings of the tune, it only made it back to #2 this week (held at bay this time by Usher‘s ‘Love in the Club’).

That elusive Hot 100 perch didn’t hurt in the long run, however, as the song went on to garner 2x platinum status and be one of the year’s biggest releases.  Tuck in below to relive it and see who joined the R&B bad boy in the top 25 this week 9 years ago:

Tink Reveals She Has Left Epic Records / Explains Album Delay

Timbaland Protégé Lifts Lid On LP Hold Up

Remember Tink?

Back in 2015, the rapper was on the brink of big things.

Presented to the world by Timbaland as his protégé, the Chi-Town native was being tipped as the next female force in Hip-Hop.

Co-signs from her mentor, XXL, and Charlamagne had the industry buzzing; but after a few videos everything went…quiet.

Well, it turns out there was a reason.

In a revealing new interview with VLAD TV, the 21-year-old lifted the lid on the label drama that stifled her launch.

So tumultuous was the back-and-forth that Timbaland packed up shop and took his Mosley Music Group imprint away from Epic Records.

Now signed solely to MMG, Tink opens up about the whole ordeal in the sit-down.

Check it out below…

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Ed Sheeran Scores Seventh Week at #1

Singer Makes History As All 12 of ‘Divide’s Tracks Chart Simultaneously

Ed Sheeran‘s comeback single, ‘Shape of You,’ has shaped up to be quite the unmovable hit.  Sharing billing with the less successful ‘Castle on the Hill’ as the dual lead release from his hotly selling third LP, ‘Divide,’ ‘Shape’ is proving to be the real tenant of the Hot 100 ‘castle.’

For, after topping the chart for six non-consecutive weeks, this week saw the tune etch its name in the #1 spot for a 7th by garnering the highest of all components that make up the chart’s placements:  digital song sales, streaming, and radio airplay.

Add to this, after becoming the first artist in history to debut two songs in the top 10 of the Hot 100, Sheeran now adds another unique history-making achievement to his growing tally.  Find out what inside:

Black Twitter Blasts Bow Wow For ‘Bizarre’ Tweet Against Melania Trump

Bow Wow (Shad Moss) may have barked up the wrong tree when he recently tried to come for president Donald Trump by taking aim at the politician/reality star’s wife, Melania.

Moss probably thought he was just following the lead of fellow emcee T.I. who took to Instagram to defend legendary rapper Snoop Dogg after the Commander-In-Chief took to Twitter to serve a clapback to the ‘Potluck Dinner Party’ star’s controversial ‘Lavender’ video.

Unlike TIP, the ‘Like You’ hitmaker’s comments were nearly as well received.  Branded by some as “bizarre,” tuck in to see exactly what Bow Wow said and see some of the troubled Twitter responses as a result:
