Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.
So, just 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’ve checked the charts of 2006 to see Beyonce reigning with her Slim Thug-assisted hit ‘Check On It.’ Lifted from the greatest hits effort of Destiny’s Child, the song’s accompanying music video served as quite the festive musical advert for the year’s Steve Martin-led film ‘Pink Panther’ (which Knowles also starred).
Skyrocketing to #1 on the Hot 100 shortly after its release, the Swizz Beatz-produced bop gave Bey her 3rd chart-topper as a solo artist and enjoyed an impressive 5 week reign atop the Hot 100 before it was dethroned this week in 2006. Tuck in below to see who did the honors as well as check out where some of your other faves from the era landed:
