Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 1995 #FBF

Michael and Janet Jackson's 'Scream' Makes Its Debut on the Hot 100
Published: Friday 15th Jun 2018 by Rashad

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.

This week we celebrate ‘Scream,’ the iconic pairing of music’s most legendary siblings Michael and Janet Jackson. Released as the first single from Michael’s ‘HIStory’ album and produced by Janet’s longtime producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, the track serves as an open letter to the press following MJ’s 1993 legal drama. The high-octane cut see the sibling flaunt a more aggressive tone (compared to their preceding offerings), which in tandem compliments their controversial lyrics (“Just stop pressuring me, stop f*cking with me”).

A dream collaboration on paper, the blissful reality was rendered ever better with the help of ‘Scream’s award-winning video – the most expensive in history.  Going on to surpass the platinum mark and be marked a fan favorite among both stars’ respective catalogs, look inside to remember the magic that was ‘Scream’ (and see who joined the song in the top 25 this week 23 years ago):
