Netflix continues to create and celebrate diverse content this year.

Its latest endeavour? The Roxanne Shante biopic.

Named ‘Roxanne Roxanne‘ the movie tells the true tale of the lyricist’s ascent to glory on the wings of a dark but inspiring journey which saw her battle predators, poverty and societal pushbacks to become one of Hip-Hop’s most celebrated women.

Nia Long and Mahershala Ali support Chante Adams as she takes on its leading role as well as Pharrell Williams…one of the movie’s producers.

March 23rd marks the spot.


Most may know Laverne Cox for her her role on ‘Orange Is The New Black’ and her trans-activism, but few know she also has musical aspirations.

The 45-year-old flaunts them in earnest in the video for her debut single ‘Beat For The Gods.’

Unleashed today, the high-octane clip certainly makes for an interesting watch. See what we mean below…


Vincent Herbert maintains that Toni Braxton‘s mother Evelyn was lying when she claimed he had assaulted his wife (and their family member) Tamar Braxton.

Where he did it?

During a strange appearance on ‘The View’ in which the show’s hosts invited him to join them on stage during an interview they were supposed to be carrying out with Tamar.

Why strange?

Efforts to present their divorce as an amicable one after Tamar’s mother and sisters claimed they had proof that he was a violent husband.


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 all we want to do is hear ‘All the Man That I Need’ – the second single from Whitney Houston‘s multiplatinum third album ‘I’m Your Baby Tonight’ [click here to read our ode to the full album].  Released in December 1990, ‘Man’ – a remake of the Linda Clifford hit released 8 years prior – succeeded the album’s title track (which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100) by peaking similarly this week in 1991.

Becoming the 9th #1 single of her career, ‘Man’ held the top spot for two weeks before being unseated by fellow powerhouse diva Mariah Carey and her hit ‘Someday.’  That dethroning certainly didn’t stop the overall power of the tune, however.  It was later certified Gold and remains a fan favorite among the singer’s lengthy list of hits.

Look inside to relive the magic of ‘All the Man That I Need’ and see who joined Houston in the top 25 this week 27 years ago:
