Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2006 #TBT

Jojo Hits Hot 100 Peak of Her Career
Published: Thursday 28th Sep 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’re going back to 2006’s ‘Too Little Too Late’ – the first single from pop powerhouse JoJo‘s sophomore album, ‘The High Road.’  Produced by Vincent Herbert and others, ‘Late’ was the long-awaited kickoff to the singer’s second era after her 2004 platinum debut wielded the hits, ‘Leave (Get Out),’ the Bow Wow-assisted ‘Baby It’s You,’ and more.  Released in mid-August 2006, by late September of that year the tune had broken the record for the biggest jump into the top three when it jumped from #66 to #3 (a record since conquered by Kelly Clarkson).

Found in that exact spot this week 11 years ago, the feat not only helped JoJo lead her second album to Gold status, but it remains the highest mark she’s hit on the Hot 100 over her entire career.  Tuck in below to relive the magic of ‘Too Little Too Late’ and see who else among your favorites joined the belter on this week’s TGJ Chart Rewind:

    Reckless was the HIT and she and her team let it die. Reckless was soulful, current and well sung. Another hit missed. Who hires these HORRIBLE promotional teams???

      I hope that deal she got with them was just for one album.
      Can’t stand her doing another one with another bad promo campaign, and another poor single choices. I can only for a cute pop hit, reckless for the real hit ass song. Almost every other choice was better than Scrap Apologiez….

        Vibe and I Can Only would easily nab a Top 20 with the right promotion, but her team was sleeping on the job!
