Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, 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’re gonna rewind to ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ – the second single from *NSYNC‘s mega-selling second album ‘No Strings Attached.’  Interestingly, while the group’s self-titled debut album sold over 10 million copies and its follow-up, ‘Attached,’ broke sales records by boasting a whopping 2.4 million units sold its first week (a record that was maintained until Adele‘s ’25’ shifted a shattering 3.38 million in 2015), the quintet’s successful narrative was devoid of one feat:  a #1 single.

That changed when ‘Me’ moseyed its way to #1 on the Hot 100 this week in 2000. Moving Matchbox 20 from the top spot, the pop tune led the pack for two consecutive weeks before being ousted by Sisqo‘s ‘Incomplete.’

Unknown to them at the time, the run would be their first and last reign over the singles chart.  Fun while it lasted right?  Anywho, tuck in below to see if any of your faves from today can be found on the summer 2000 chart:

    I swear, it doesn’t seem like it’s been 16 years since those songs were out.

    Aaliyah snatched DC3 ?

    • King B July 28, 2016

      Has the album passed 3 Million in US after 15 years? DC won 3 Grammys you know.

    Aaliyah <3

  5. Bitchpleaseeee July 28, 2016

  6. Liam July 28, 2016

    Back then having a #1 single didn’t matter once the albums sold those were the days

    Kinda crazy that I know and love every single song in the throwback top 20 but I couldn’t tell you half the songs in the current top 20! I miss music pre- Katy Perry/Meghan Trainor/other current basics

    • JOHNVIDAL July 29, 2016

      Yaaaas! Exactly. That´s how big the difference is.

    Both Aaliyah and Joe slayed, so did Toni and Jagged Edge.R&B seriously ruled Billboard, but this was the beginning of the end. Great chart! Any chart pre 2001 makes any current chart look so basic… When did basic become so popular?

  9. King B July 28, 2016

    DC, Xtina, P!nk!!!!

    Try Again was my JAM! Fun fact, it’s credited for bringing EDM into mainstream Us?
    .

    “Try Again” helped smuggle the innovative techniques of electronic dance music onto the American pop charts, and it established Aaliyah as pop music’s most futuristic star.
