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.

For this one we’ll press replay on ‘No One’ – the 2007 #1 hit from Grammy-winning songbird Alicia Keys.  The first single from her third studio album, ‘As I Am,’ by late November that year the tune had already helped hoist its parent project to historic heights on the Billboard 200 (best first week sales for any female R&B singer).  However, this week 9 years ago it saw its own ascension to #1 after booting Chris Brown‘s ‘Kiss Kiss’ out of the top spot this week in 2007.  Going on to earn ‘Best R&B Song’ honors at the next year’s Grammys, “No One” entered history books as the most listened to song on U.S. radio in 2008 and, as of time reported, hovers just over the 4x platinum mark.

Tuck in below to find out who joined Keys in the top 25 this week in 2007:

    • Kev November 24, 2016

      Why are fans of Beyoncé’s lessors trying to throw shade. Selena Gonorrhea, Britney sh!t stain, and Keri my bags, ? all flops

    • BEY>RIH November 26, 2016

      Yet Irreplaceable was the #1 song of the year. It spent ten weeks at number one and sold 7.5 million copies WW.

  2. KingMe November 24, 2016

    I loved this era of music!! I was a junior in high school this time around. So nostalgic

    • Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey Really Is!!!) November 24, 2016

      So was I. I love pretty much everyone of those songs on the chart.

  3. Cough Cough November 24, 2016

    Music was slowly inching its way into decline. There’s a couple cuts on this list though.

  4. Chile November 24, 2016

    Nostalgia like a mug

  5. Mark111 November 24, 2016

    B Day was dead by the 6 month mark, even with a re-release, So was The Evolution. I forgot Chris Brown even had a #1 and look at Kanye with two top 10s. This was when pop was very urban, but the next year things would change when EDM took over. But this is also when Rihanna became her own artist and would kill the game for another 12 months.

    • King B November 25, 2016

      Lol Mark. At least B’day sold 3,800,000 copies in US and 6-7 Million copies WW with a flop re-release and a successful plus acclaimed solo tour. GGGB with a re-release couldn’t even outsell Teenage Dream in the US and The Fame. The reason why I brought those two is because they are almost similar when it comes to single success and a re-release that was promoted like crazy with multiples extra smash hits. Teenage Dream was released in a much worse market though.

  6. Lake Erie November 24, 2016

    Keys was the SH!T back then!!!!!! Smh… I got a feeling she’ll back…. for the nostalgia anyways… seems like some where in all artist careers, they venture off and do new things. Then they eventually come out with a “back to the roots” album. So she’ll be back with make up and all…

    • Marjani November 25, 2016

      She just came out with a new album a few weeks called HERE. You should check it out. It’s really good.

      • Marjani November 25, 2016
