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’ll ode Toni Braxton‘s 2000 comeback hit ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough,’ the first single lifted from her third LP ‘The Heat.’  Reaching its Hot 100 peak of #2 this week sixteen years ago, the up-tempo Rodney Jerkins-produced number was hailed by fans and critics as a welcomed departure from her standard catalog of slow jams.  Ushering her oft-praised contralto to a new generation of listeners, ‘Man Enough’ proved itself to be just enough to make fans forget the balladress’s bevy of legal and financial woes that kept her out of the limelight for the 3 years following her megahit ‘Unbreak My Heart.’

With its accompanying video featuring a cast of familiar faces (see: Robin Givens, Tamar Braxton, ‘Noah’s Arc’s Rodney Chester, and ex-husband Keri Lewis), pop the top on the jump below to waltz down memory lane and find out who else among your faves joined Braxton in the top 25 this week in 2000…

    16 years later and Beyoncé is still able to chart in the top 10. The LONGEVITY!

    • King Mark111 /.\ May 5, 2016

      I don’t see Beyonce on this chart.

      • Brain dead spears May 5, 2016

        Formation is number 10 on billboard 100.

      • Maurice May 5, 2016

      • King Mark111 /.\ May 5, 2016

      • Ciah’s Turtle May 9, 2016

        yea cause ‘say my name’ isn’t # 5 on the list.

  2. King Mark111 /.\ May 5, 2016

    I remember Aaliyah totally blocked Toni’s comeback that year. Try Again was EVERYWHERE.

    • RihNavy May 5, 2016

      Everywhere just like her ashes, huh sis? Happy Chatturbate de Mayo siiiiis

      • Maurice May 5, 2016

        omg no chill whatsoever.
        I can’t with you people.

      • RihNavy May 5, 2016

        @Maurice, sorry, I don’t talk to domestic abusers.

    • MUSICHEAD May 5, 2016

      U sound dumb as hell. Toni Braxton earned a double platinum album, a gold single, 2 American Music Awards, Multiple Soul Train awards and a Grammy for her comeback. Nobody was ever checking for Aaliyah. She was on Mya’s level. Now go play in traffic.

    • Erik May 5, 2016

      Aaliyah didn’t block Toni from ANYTHING. Toni conquered the year 2000.

  3. Xo May 5, 2016

    This was my Shiiiitt and still is!

    • Dev May 6, 2016

      Tell me about it! still play this today and it still gives me life.

  4. Metzo May 5, 2016

    Probably the only artist i love(d) more than Beyonce. Toni’s voice is 1 in a milli

  5. What Now May 5, 2016

    They don’t make the charts like this anymore. Good throwback.

    • Metzo May 5, 2016

  6. zeroing ivy bloper tran anti girl lemond time May 5, 2016


  7. King B May 5, 2016

  13. JOHNVIDAL May 6, 2016

    As always: way better than nowadays charts.
    Damn it Santana really killed it those years! I think he went diamond and he also won like the most grammys ever in one night since Michael´s Thriller (if I remember correctly). Pure talent.

  14. JOHNVIDAL May 6, 2016

    I´m listening a lot to Toni´s song “Melt” lately. I love it.

    • Korrenzo May 6, 2016
