New Song: Cher Lloyd – ‘Activated’

Singer Back After Lengthy Spell Out Of The Spotlight

cher-lloyd-activated-thatgrapejuice

Blasts from the past rarely wow as much on second impact. Yet, Cher Lloyd is setting out to change that narrative with comeback single ‘Activated.’

The star rose to prominence on The X Factor UK and enjoyed a chart run on home soil which eventually landed her a US deal with the early incarnation of L.A Reid‘s Epic.

A string of respectable Stateside placements followed; yet with the label being in its infancy and no sizeable smash in sight, Lloyd quietly departed.

With the music industry being one of no guarantees, many assumed the singer had faded into the Pop abyss.

In reality, she was picking up the pieces. A journey which has led her to the release of this new number.

Can she activate another run of relevance? Take a listen below and let us know…

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 2007 #TBT

Rihanna Continues To Make A Splash On Charts With 'Umbrella'

Rihanna-thatgrapejuice-umbrella-#tbt

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 and raincoats to Rihanna Fenty‘s 2007 megahit ‘Umbrella.’  Originally written for (but later passed on by) pop princess Britney Spears, the tune found a home on Rih’s tertiary release, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad.’ A loss for Spears, but just the right move for Fenty as the Dream-produced cut and its accompanying music video came as a visual and sonic reintroduction of sorts for the Bajan beauty (who up to that point was known for her fairly safe radio offerings).

Calling to mentor/labelhead Jay-Z to assist with the percussion driven pop number, the song was an out-of-the-box success thanks for its catchy guitar riffs and, of course, that signature repetitious “ella ella ey ey.”  Going on to be the best-performing single of 2007 (only behind Beyonce‘s ‘Irreplaceable’), ‘Umbrella’ would not only garner Grammys, global critical acclaim, an impressive reign at #1 on the Hot 100 and help its parent album to #1 on the Billboard 200, but most importantly – in the grand scheme – it successfully transitioned the star to the bad gal we know today.

Hop down below the jump to replay ‘Umbrella’ and see if any of your faves from today accompanied Rih on the Hot 100’s upper rankings this week 9 years ago:
