TGJ Replay: Aaliyah – ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number’

aaliyah age aint nothing but a number thatgrapejuice TGJ Replay:  Aaliyah   Age Aint Nothing But A Number

Welcome back to TGJ Replay!

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ features, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s newest retrospective segment – a written quest, if you will, to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.

With Lifetime Network gaining a bevy of bad reviews for its controversial, unauthorized biography of one of R&B’s most beloved characters, Aaliyah, we thought it a perfect time to shine some light and ode her debut album ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number.’ As the album celebrated its 20th birthday this summer, let’s go back back to the ‘Back & Forth’ singer’s humble beginnings…

 Watch:  VH1 Launches Hilarious Madonna Dearest Parody Series ( #AskMadonna )

Are you one of the few people who has been living under a rock since VH1 unveiled its hilarious ‘Madonna Dearest’ parody series?  Well, thank us in advance for inviting you to stand in the sun with the rest of us.

Fashioned in the likes of hit Youtube web series ‘Got 2 B Real’ and ‘The Legend Panel,’ the dynamic creative force behind the latter – Phabian Mitchell and Lamont Hicks – teamed with the music channel to craft an online segment dedicated to the Queen of Pop and her ever-unforgiving tongue.  Voiced by TV writer/actress/’woman of 1000 voices’ Nadya Ginsburg, viewers are invited to ask Madge her thoughts on anything from music’s hottest names (i.e. Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, and more) to hot topics.

As only the Material Girl would, trust and believe that her responses are witty and no doubt hilarious.  Have you been missing out on the action? Check out the first three webisodes below:

From The Vault: Destiny’s Child – ‘Soldier’

Echoing this week’s TGJ Replay, today’s From The Vault pick is ‘Soldier’ by iconic-trio Destiny’s Child.

The second offering from the divas’ decade old ‘Destiny Fulfilled‘ LP, and follow up to club banger ‘Lose My Breath‘, ‘Soldier’ was helmed by ‘Crazy In Love‘ maestro Rich Harrison and written by the girls alongside lyricist extraordinaire Sean Garrett.

As a nod to the founding members’ Southern foundation, rappers T.I. and Lil’ Wayne are featured on the track, which at the time helped further cement their reputation as the next-big-things in Hip-Hop.

Like its predecessor, it peaked at #3 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 – as well as its Hot Hip-Hop/R&B – but had even more longevity becoming one of the biggest songs of the following year. It was a worldwide smash too peaking at #4 in the UK and reaching the 3rd position of the charts in Australia.

The Ray Kay directed video saw the trio yet again amping up the divatude, serving glam, grit, grown, and sexy. A black-and-white affair, the clip featured appearances from a heavily-pregnant Solange, Luke James, and Ice Cube and was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award in 2005.

********************

After rising to prominence with songs that defined girl power, ‘Soldier’ and its parent album continued the trend with a flair, maturity, and a real sense of womanhood.
With ten years having passed and the ladies now possessing their own success, “soldiers” and children, we can’t help but daydream about the prospect of new music, the themes attached, and above all how epic it’d be.
DC3 may have announced their disbandment during their last tour in 2005, yet we’re remain hopeful that a reunion could still happen. After all, their destiny may be “fulfilled” as a full-time group, but there’s no reason it can’t be revisited, celebrated, and have additional chapters added in the future.
