Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 1997 #TBT

Published: Thursday 20th Oct 2016 by Rashad

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’re getting everything we need and more from ‘Everything’ – the third single from Mary J. Blige‘s 3x platinum third studio album ‘Share My World.’  The Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis produced cut, which famously samples ‘You Are Everything’ [The Stylistics], was accompanied by one of the Grammy winner’s most memorable visuals – a Hawaiian themed clip helmed by hit video director Hype Williams.  Helping it reach its Hot 100 peak of #24 this week 19 years ago, the song is an enduring fan favorite from Blige’s catalog and is undoubtedly a “must hear” on her ‘King & Queen’ tour with fellow R&B royal Maxwell [click here to read more] .

    One I Gave My Heart To was Aaliyah’s 3rd top 10 on the hot 100 and 4th top 10 on the R&B chart. From the already double platinum album… in 1997.
