Beyonce may be gearing up to set sail on her ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’, but that hasn’t stopped the singer’s promotional machine from working overtime.

Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.  So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits.  Today, we rewind to the record-setting, first and only solo LP of Black Eyed Peas frontwoman Fergie (who celebrates her 38th birthday today)…

While some may choose to deny it, Keri Hilson really is R&B’s go to girl when it comes to churning out commercial hits.

Indeed, while combined sales of her LPs say little of her skill and talent, their first week digits and supporting singles make her one of the only ‘new girls’ from the genre to enjoy Platinum status, with ‘Turnin’ Me On’ and ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ selling over 1 million units and ‘Knock You Down‘ surpassing the 2 million mark.

Fans of Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett know the past year has seen her quite busy.  Indeed, after winning over fans with her Mary J. Blige-assisted TV film ‘Betty & Coretta’, she and veteran actor Morgan Freeman topped box office charts last weekend with hit film ‘Olympus Has Fallen’.

However, if her recent interview with the Huffington Post is anything to go by, looks like she won’t have much time to celebrate.   For, while preparing the film ‘Black Nativity’ with Blige and actress/singer Jennifer Hudson, Bassett is still joining the original cast of ‘Waiting To Exhale’ for a long-awaited part 2.

Looks like the wish of Mariah Huq – the co-creator and star of Bravo’s latest reality show ‘Married To Medicine’ got her wish for a hit.  Indeed, the show’s premiere – which hit screens last night immediately after ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ – opened to soaring ratings.

Via THR:

“Married to Medicine brought in 1.9 million viewers during its premiere outing.

That’s the highest number for a Bravo series launch since Bethenny Getting Married in 2010 and the most-watched premiere ever for a non-spinoff.”

The news comes shortly after a number of Howard University medical students started an online petition to have the show cancelled – much like that of Shawty Lo‘s ‘All My Baby Mamas’ reality stint.
