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.
Next up? We’ll rewind to 1992 to revisit one of King of Pop Michael Jackson‘s biggest hits: ‘Black or White.’ Released in November 1991 as the lead single from Jackson’s 8th album, ‘Dangerous,’ the tune was only on radio 3 weeks before it ascended to #1. A cause only assisted by its controversial music video, which to date is considered one of the most controversial of all time, the song went on to platinum status and have a 7 week reign at the top of the Hot 100 into 1992 (where it’s seen this week). The run also made MJ the first artist to have a #1 hit in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
Tuck in below to relive ‘Black or White’ and see who else among your faves joined the King of Pop in the top 25 this week 26 years ago:
