Time flies! It’s been a decade since Wizkid hit the scene with his debut album ‘Superstar’ and he’s unquestionably manifested its title.
Home to hits such as ‘Pakuromo,’ the LP ignited a heat streak that is still burning hotter than ever today.
To commemorate the project, Starboy teamed up with YouTube for a documentary special.
Christened ‘A Superstar Made In Lagos,’ the production sees the performer reflect on his beginnings, his astronomical rise, and his personal life. Guest contributors include Nigerian-British boxing icon Anthony Joshua and Femi Kuti.
Spice brought exactly that to the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series this week.
The Queen of Dancehall was joined by fellow royals Sean Paul and Shaggy for a rousing rendition of their blazing bop ‘Go Down Deh.’
A bonafide smash, the scorching video for the jam has amassed over 12 million views and has been trending for 5 consecutive weeks.

Gospel powerhouse Todd Dulaney has unwrapped a hearty helping of ‘Anthems & Glory’ on his like-titled new album.
A Stellar and GRAMMY Award nominee, Dulaney’s latest collection is comprised of tracks he spontaneously penned with inspiration from the written word of God.
Armed with the momentum of pre-pandemic singles ‘You’re Doing It All Again’ and ‘Psalms 18’ (which both peaked at #1 on Gospel Radio), Dulaney is also boosted by the success of ‘Your Great Name’ – which dominated airwaves too.
That Grape Juice‘s Chet Kincaid caught up with the star, who opened up about his project and music ministry.

Check out Nicki Minaj!
The femcee wears many things well – including motherhood.
Minaj, 38, welcomed her first child with husband Kenneth Petty in October and has largely been private when it comes to their son.
However, as she continues her return to the spotlight, the Rap royal is also shining a light on her pride and joy.
Moments ago, Minaj shared an adorable snap of her matching in white with the eight-month-old.
She’s expected to open up about motherhood, new music, and more in her forthcoming HBO Max documentary.

Beyond the glitz and glamor, the business side of music can be tough for artists.
For, acts are typically tasked with recouping the label’s spend on their projects by way of sales. As such, if they don’t meet this commercial marker, they’re effectively indebted to the label – even when they move on. So much so that music royalties may not be paid to artists, but instead, go towards settling the debt.

Readers of That Grape Juice know how passionate we are about music – whether that be past or present.
However, unlike our other segments – Retro Rewind, TGJ Replay, and From The Vault – The Pop Stop is the most in-depth look at Pop songs that may have flown under the radar over the last week that you should know, rather they be from music’s biggest stars or those on the rise.
