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 time we’ll highlight ‘Sometimes’ – the second single from Britney Spears‘ 1999 debut album, ‘Baby One More Time.’ With big shoes to fill given the mega-success of its chart-topping, platinum predecessor ‘Baby One More Time’ (the song), ‘Sometimes’ came as a mid-tempo groove that, like most of its parent album, borrowed elements of Eurodance and Europop in its composition. Not exactly an out of the box success like ‘Baby,’ ‘Sometimes’ went on to eventually nab top 30 status before being halted at #21 on the Hot 100.
This week 18 years ago the tune maintained its #21 peak. Tuck in below to see if you can spot any familiar faces who joined the Southern belle in the top 25 this week in 1999:
