Back In The Beat: Christina Aguilera – ‘Come One Over Baby (All I Want Is You)’

Published: Friday 6th Nov 2009 by Trent

Do you know which song spent the most weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100? Do you know which song was the first to debut at the top spot? That Grape Juice has you covered! ‘Back In The Beat’ is our brand new feature, which each Friday takes a look back at the songs that topped the Billboard Hot 100 at this exact point in time in years of past.

Covered by me, Trent, it provides the opportunity to not only take a ‘trip down memory lane’, but remember some of the monumental songs that molded the present day sound of the music industry. So get out your pen and paper because class is officially in session!


Back in 2000, on October 14th to be precise, Pop star Christina Aguilera rocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with the 4th single from her Grammy Award-winning debut album, ‘Christina Aguilera’, entitled ‘Come One Over Baby (All I Want Is You)’. The song held the #1 spot for 4 consecutive weeks and remained on the Hot 100 for an impressive 21 weeks in total. ‘Come  On Over…’ also gained success in markets outside of the US by peaking in the top to of 12 countries. The Spanish version of the track, ‘Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tú)’, became her first song to reach the pinnacle of the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks, establishing her as one of the major Latin superstars during the era where male artists like Ricky Martin and Santana dominated the genre.

‘Come On Over…’ was one of the songs that helped define the return of the (quality) Pop era of music; demonstrating a brilliant combination of tight production and talent. It’s astonishing that quality material like this has been replaced by the hollow voices of the new generation of chart toppers.  Interestingly, Christina herself seems to have strayed from the formula that helped make her a global sensation; substituting restraint and precision with the overbearing and rather unpleasant wailing that incorporated her last album, ‘Back To Basics’. Hopefully, she will veer back toward her roots on her upcoming project, ‘Light & Darkness’, and leave the over-singing to the amateurs.

    OMG I love this song. Christina was great back then, she still is.
    I like this Back In The Beat thing.
    Anyway I cant wait for “Lights and Darkness”, she worked with Tricky Stewart and Claude Kelly , Sia, M.I.A., Linda Perry on this new album.
    I really miss her in the game.
