Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 2007 #TBT

Britney Spears' 'Gimme More' Hits Its Hot 100 Peak
Published: Thursday 12th Oct 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 gonna give ya ‘Gimme More’ – the lead single from Britney Spears fifth studio album, ‘Blackout’ [click here to read our ode to the album].  Unveiled via an awesomely bad MTV VMA performance, the tune – produced by Timbaland protege Danja and written by Keri Hilson – was officially released in late September 2007.  Just a few weeks later, the song zoomed to #3 on the Hot 100 (where it was found this week that year).  Going on to nearly double platinum status thanks to its stripper-inspired video (a break from her normally highly choreographed numbers), ‘Gimme’ – which remains a fan favorite over 10 years later – officially kicked off the era known by many of her staunchest supporters as her ‘magnum opus.’

See who joined Spears’ ‘Gimme More’ in the top 25 this week 10 years ago:

    “Blackout” could have been huge if released before her mental breakdown, that album is Pop Urban perfection.
