Welcome to the new and improved That Grape Juice!

2014 marks our SEVENTH year online, a feat we wouldn’t have reached without all of you – our loyal readers.

Indeed, over the last seven years, TGJ has amassed a following that visit the site in their millions monthly. By no means passive, our readers have helped the site become one of the most active Urban communities online with thousands of comments left daily.

So, who better to reward than YOU for rocking and riding with us for so long and so strong!

About The New That Grape Juice

The new TGJ provides an experience that is both fresh and familiar, serving you the best in Urban Pop music and entertainment. Naturally, we’ll be dishing out posts with the same flair and frequency you’ve come to expect, yet we’ll be doing so in a way that is radically streamlined.

No longer will there be the need to visit an entirely different site address to access our spin on entertainment. Everything will be right here! Music, movies, TV, and much more!

Of course, we know you are all beautifully diverse and drink That Grape Juice for different reasons, so in catering to your preferred flavor, we now have three simple sections:

Music:

beyonce-tgjOur dedicated Music tab delivers an experience akin to what ThatGrapeJuice.net has delivered continuously for almost a decade — the best in Urban Pop music!  So, news, reviews, artist interviews, live sessions and much more. TGJ’s Music pillar will see us continue to serve as one of the net’s most premium, reliable, and respected sources for all things Urban Pop.  

Fluent in our ability to “tell it how we see it”, TGJ’s Music tab will charge on with the same brand and strand of cutting edge that our readers have come to know, love, and debate about in earnest.

Entertainment:

kevin-hart-patrick-tgjWant your ‘Scandal’ fix? Or perhaps it’s ‘The Game’? Maybe just maybe it’s NeNe and the rest of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ that have you glued to Bravo weekly?

Well, if any of this applies to you, That Grape Juice’s new Entertainment tab is calling your name.

Here housed will be TGJ’s unique take on all in the world of Urban television and film. From ratings, to trailers, to interviews, spoilers, and much more! We have you covered.

All:

This tab, which is now the site’s landing page, will combine (into one feed) all the ingredients that make up the new That Grape Juice. Music and Entertainment together at their juiciest!

      We finally agree on something.

  3. Lovers&Friends April 1, 2014

    On some real s*** Sam, I ain’t never met you and probably won’t but I’ve been on here since 08 and I’m so proud of your journey. Good for f****** for you.

  4. Mark111 April 1, 2014

    Great job Sam. I love this site, we may drag each other to hell, but we’re a community (a shady one, but still. Ĺ

  5. Navy Commander(R8) April 1, 2014

    U better slay sam!!!

    Can we get a app too?

  6. AubRih Graham April 1, 2014

    Biased behavior aside, this is a really good site and I can tell that Sam is passionate about what he does even when it’s shading my fave. The fact that you went to so much effort to surprise us was a nice ass thing to do and I like what you did with it. Stop talking s*** about the Queen and I’ll love you forever.

  7. BEYONSLAY April 1, 2014

    Well done TGJ, keep on slaying.

  8. Draggin4MrsCarter April 1, 2014

    All hail King Sam.

  9. 200MillionRiah April 1, 2014

    What kind of epic mess is this? I know you did not make me snatch my own wig from my own head with this redesign.

  10. NickiBEENBad April 1, 2014

    You better pay homage to Queen Onika and be on your Boss Ass B**** s*** tgj! Go the phuck off withco bad selves.

  11. SCHESISSE*RETURNS April 1, 2014

    LOOOOVE IT *in my Dragon Tales voice*

    YASSSS!

  12. NotLikeTheMovies April 1, 2014

    All these colors just prove that TGJ was inspired by the TD era. Katy’s impact though.

    • LTM April 1, 2014

      Teenage Dream era was more pink and neon colors then purple though.

    • Navy Commander April 1, 2014

      B****? DO YOU KNOW WHAT COLOR GRAPES ARE? Delusional ass

      • NotLikeTheMovies April 1, 2014

        Call me a b**** again and see what I’ll do.

  13. LTM April 1, 2014

    Been on TGJ since 2009, nice to see how far its come. I love the new layout too, very nice and fresh.

  14. FantasiaSlayrino April 1, 2014

    Sam….what are you actually trying to do to me with these cups and clothes you be selling in this shop of yours? You finna make me go broke or nah?

  15. Kitty April 1, 2014

    Sam you better slay, loving the new site format.

  16. CiciFinnaBeABride April 1, 2014

    Can I just say that I love every single one of you b******. Yes even you Rosie. We come on here and fight everyday but we are a community and I couldn’t imagine my life without y’all in it.

    • FentySoSnatched April 1, 2014

      Oh my gosh b**** shut up before you make me cry.

    • Rosie April 1, 2014

      Aww thanks.

  17. xedos April 1, 2014

    the website rihanna build

  18. Matthew Charlery-Smith April 1, 2014

    Well, it’s nice to see an update…although the screen is now so bright!

    Congrats on 7 years. I do hope that you’ll stop being so biased though, Kelly, Brandy and Ciara are LONG overdue a drag or two!

    No mention on the disappearance of She Is Diva?

    Hopefully the better quality site will encourage better quality readers. It’s like an episode of Jerry Springer on here sometimes.

  19. IggyIggyIggy April 1, 2014

    My new fav web site 2bh.

  20. ChartToppahNika April 1, 2014

    I’m sorry but all the other web sites can hand in their retirement letters today cos Sam and David are obvs coming for blood.

  21. GILBERTO April 1, 2014

    It looks very nice. It’s definitely the best layout this blog ever had, and I’m the HBIC here for years. It slayed without promising, unlike Artpoop.

  22. OVODasher April 1, 2014

    Sam just be outchea killing s*** like it ain’t nothing.

  23. LTM April 1, 2014

    Lol @ the seven rules of slaying shirt.

  24. Marina’sDiamonds April 1, 2014

    Very impressed Sam, VERY impressed.

  25. lovebird April 1, 2014

    Oh so She is diva flopped harder than a Kelly Rowland piece on Wikipedia and you decide to revamp this site, it is slaying anyway I can’t deny that. Kudos to your d*** sucking game Samantha.

    Still dying at the shop though, but get money b****. Those clothes look more fashionable than Beyonce’s Hood of Dead-wrong ratchet collection which K Mart wouldn’t even carry.

    Hopefully an improved site results into improved content; oh wait this site is run by salty queens, no way that will happen.

    Congrats I guess Samantha.

    • BeySting April 1, 2014

      You want to talk about clothing lines when Rihanna’s condom range is long overdue? I can’t, I shan’t and I f****** won’t.

      • lovebird April 1, 2014

        Oh you must be one of the hoodrats who wear Hood of dead-wrong; how embarrassing.

  26. Navy Commander(Al Sheikh ABeech) April 1, 2014

    ^delusional ass

  27. GILBERTO April 1, 2014

    I just didn’t like one thing: the avatars. When you stan for someone with a ***flawless humane forehead, it’s good. But when you stan for a basic b**** whose forehead is as big as Predator’s, it won’t look great.

    • FutureCIARA April 2, 2014

      I agree!!!!

      The AVATARS NEED TO BE MORE NOTICEABLE AND BIGGER!!!

  28. BarbBey April 1, 2014

    This is what I like to see. It’s so obvious to me that stanning for Beyonce is the reason this web site keeps slaying. I mean really, look at the slayage slaying us from every which way and tell me this doesn’t remind you of December 13th 2013.

  29. Navy Commander(R8) April 1, 2014

    That was to Gilberto the “Hbic” Lmao

  30. lovebird April 1, 2014

    I agree, the avatar should be big enough to fit a fat B*****.

    We must accommodate fat Beytches too.

  31. HausMuthaAdele April 1, 2014

    What kind of Adele 21 type undercover slayage?

    • GILBERTO April 1, 2014

      21? I’d say God’s SELFTITLED album, aka YONCE ON THE CHARTS LIKE LIQUOR. It came out of anywhere slaying everybody’s career.

      • HausMuthaAdele April 1, 2014

        Delusional soul.

  32. Rosie April 1, 2014

    It’s a bit weird that I’ve been here fighting with people (mostly gay men? no shade) over celebrities for over a year now but it’s been really interesting. And I really like the layout.

    • GILBERTO April 1, 2014

      I don’t fight. Thar’s for animals, I state FACTS into basic b******’ faces.

  33. HighwayUnicorn April 1, 2014

    How can Rihanna’s head fit into these avatars?

  34. lovebird April 1, 2014

    Not when we’ll be struggling to tell the difference between that avi circle and Beyonce’s round face. Must suck to be a fat B*****.

    • BitchyBey April 1, 2014

      Girl stop, Rihanna’s p**** bill hasn’t been paid this month so back to the corner you go.

    • GILBERTO April 1, 2014

      B****, you can’t recognize the face of Pepsi and Toyota? BYE! YONCE SLAYING ON THE CHARTS LIKE LIQUOR!

  35. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) April 1, 2014

    F*** Sam and the rest of TGJ staff! If I ever run into you I’m beating ass on sight w NO warning!

    And I can’t at some of y’all praising this f**! Weak b******!

  36. lovebird April 1, 2014

    I just feel sorry for the dry cleaners who have to clean Jay Zs c** off of Beyonce’s clothes.

    • Slayara Harris (Queen of R&B) April 1, 2014

      I feel sorry for Rihanna’s p**** walls. #CavedIn

      • lovebird April 1, 2014

        I feel sorry for Ciara’s child support bill.

    • GILBERTO April 1, 2014

      I feel bad for C-error’s child, it will be hard to come out out of his penis.

      • GREEKGOD April 2, 2014

        LMFAOOOOO

  37. Navy Commander(R8) April 1, 2014

    Sam you should add a forum and come for lipstick alleys wig

  38. lovebird April 1, 2014

    If only Beyonce can stay away from that liquor and slay a workout routine, that’ll do her some good. Fat ain’t s***.

    • GILBERTO April 1, 2014

      That’s all you have to say? FAT? LOL. You’d better come with better comebacks. I ain’t here for this weak-ass ass s***. I leave the 4th-grade discussion for the lessors.

      • lovebird April 1, 2014

        But 4th grade is too high an intellect level for a Beyonce fan.

    • KingKelly April 1, 2014

      Maybe Rihanna can teach her hers.

      How does it go again? Oh I know.

      Step 1. Open mouth
      Step 2. Spread legs
      Step 3. Spread b*** cheeks
      Step 4. Collect money.

      Monica Lewinsky wishes she could.

      • lovebird April 1, 2014

        Why? Beyonce did a good job of that at the Grammy’s.

  39. Skyfall April 1, 2014

    The avi box needs to be bigger but overall this new layout slays

  40. MrsMerrygold April 1, 2014

    i love it i love it ah LOOOOOOOOOOVE it.

  41. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. April 1, 2014

    “like a thief in the night”…Hey Sam ,that describes your fave perfectly! A thief, good idea!

    Just change it to “steal songwriting credits like a thief in the night” and it’ll be perfect!!!!

  42. yessssssssssss Gawdddddd April 1, 2014

    ok yall did that !

  43. Treboi April 1, 2014

    Seems Sam and Staff pulled a Beyoncé on us but I’m here for it . I love coming here to get the goods and I just started mid. 2013 #late. Love the content I get from here but lord the virtual fights are cray. Nonetheless this is my fave so I guess I’m now a “Stan” for That Grape Juice!! Job we’ll done. At the end of the day it’s entertaining!!

  44. RICHIE_RICH April 1, 2014

    Slay a bit Sam . I really do enjoy coming to you’re site . We might throw shade from here to some back alley in Bangkok , but some way some how we’re online family . I wish you nothing but success SAM ……

  45. Stephy April 1, 2014

    Sam, you website is nice. I still kinda miss the DARK PURPLE vibe of the other layout but this is nice.

    My only opinion on this website is can you make the Avi’s a little BIGGER!

    Congrats!

  46. ozzyone April 1, 2014

    I can’t with y’all calling yourselves a “family” lol. When did we start becoming so sentimental here? But I will say, I love to hate on all you stupid b******.
    Love.

  47. TruthTeaBurns! April 2, 2014

    So the sites that you all tried to push on us such as She Is Diva… failed and you’re combining it into the one successful site. I see. Smart business.

  48. TRUTH COMMISSION April 2, 2014

    The site is alright Sam, but you missed one very important thing.. The comment section. The problem is that anybody can still post under 8 different users names to act like other people is hating on their fave. When I first saw the new design I was happy, cause I thought you change the comment section to where people ain’t posting under 25 user names.

    Sam, have you ever heard of a cumunity comment site called “disqus” it’s where you have to make account to in order to comment. That would work a lot better on here, cause we can spot out the trolls around here with other users names.

  49. whoami April 2, 2014

    Congrats on the new site, you still have not replied to my email reply.

  50. JOHNVIDAL April 2, 2014

    YAaaaasssss! Iconic Mariah Carey in your minds and now on your T-shirts LOL

  51. Truth Tea April 2, 2014

    Well done Sam and everyone at that GrapeJuice and even more props to you from being from the UK and snatching Wigs from all the the US Urban music sites! on top of that, that Mariah T Shirt is EVERYTHNG!!! praying you do one in black lol

  52. Suicide Blonde April 2, 2014

    I like it, well done Thatgrapejuice staff.

  53. LALA April 2, 2014

    TOO MUCH!!! THE TIME TO LEAVE THIS SITE HAS COME… NOW ITS 100% CHILDISH AND THE NEWS U GOT ON ARTISTS IT’S NOT LIKE IT USED TO BE NOW U JUST AIM FOR 12 YEARSOLD MUSIC!YUCK!

  54. GREEKGOD April 2, 2014

    Slay a bit.

  55. coolness April 2, 2014

    Wow, Sam the new layout rocks!!! This is really somrthing you have on here. I know you’ve been trying to make some changes since last week but some glitches hindered the progress. Hopefully, this one sticks! I’ve been coming here for about a year plus now and even though you throw unnecessary shade at certain artists (I really stan for no one), I love how I can get my music info. That being, said, the comments section is CRAZY! Some of the things I see on here are funny as hell but also downright disrespectful. Hopefully, you will moderate such comments. All in all, congratulations!

  56. savvy April 2, 2014

    nice one. stylish. it’s loading faster too. with blocked ads ofc. them slowing it down and make the browser lag. stupid code that is.

    small issues: that “shows” popup is like a needle in my eyes. and why that email input so big?

    • FutureCIARA April 2, 2014

      THE EMAIL INPUT IS SUPER HUGE!!! I GUESS WE PAY FOR IT BY GETTING TINY ASS GRAVATARS!

      LOL

  57. elihkyh April 2, 2014

    Don’t know why I keep coming back to this damn site, I hate 90% of mainstream Urban Music & I told myself I would never again be back (that didnt last) But I will agree this layout is Life. But Now that I think about it I think its Sam’s commentary that I like so much. Other then how PerezHilton was (back in the day)Sam is the only Blogger with a Big Personality. Congrats.

  69. JuanR April 4, 2014

    I’m here for the progress! Good luck Sam!

  70. Alex April 12, 2014

    Mahindra incurred a currency loss of 1.2 billion rupees as the rupee dropped for a fourth straight quarter, completing the steepest slide in 17 years. Its utility-vehicle sales fell 26 percent in the quarter as banks tightened credit and job insecurity hurt sales. The Indian partner of Renault SA shut most of its plants for up to six days in December.
