Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 1993 #FBF

Tina Turner's Last Top 10 Hit on the Hot 100 Peaks
Published: Friday 11th Aug 2017 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 wanna go back to ‘I Don’t Wanna Fight’Tina Turner’s last top 10 hit on the Hot 100. Originally penned for Brit Soul singer Sade, the tune was eventually recorded by the Queen of Rock for inclusion on the official soundtrack of her autobiographical film, ‘What’s Love Got the Do With It?’ And, like the film, ‘Don’t Wanna Fight’ turned out to be quite the hit.

Hitting #9 on the Hot 100 (where it peaked this week 24 years ago), ‘Fight’ would go on to fight for the honor of ‘Best Female Pop Vocal Performance’ at the 1994 Grammy Awards (but lost out to Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You’).  Despite the loss, the song continues to be a favorite among Turner’s legendary catalog of hits.

As we press play on the heart-tugging number, tuck in to see who joined the Rock royal in the top 25 this week 24 years ago:

    There’s no comparison. The 1993 chart is the ish.

    Back when talent dominated the charts, artists actually sold physical albums, and Billboard didn’t have to change their rules every 5 minutes because mediocre talent couldn’t achieve what The Greats did on their own. And no streaming bullsh*t either.
