As we reported here, industry analysts predicted 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj‘s reunion duet, ‘Trollz,’ would free fall down the Billboard Hot 100 after spending only one week at its perch.

While it is not uncommon for songs that rely on single bundling and single discounting tactics to reach the top to experience steep falls after those measures desist, ‘Trollz’ is a special case as it does not boast favor in the radio airplay division of chart calculation that its competition does.

As such, the tune made a whopping plunge on the refreshed Hot 100, making it the furthest fall from #1 (while remaining on the chart) in the tally’s 62-year history.

Welcome to the latest TGJ Roundtable!

Over the years, That Grape Juice has established a distinguished voice that – whether loved or loathed – sparks discussion, debate, and on occasion drama!

Those ingredients made the perfect environment for baking and unveiling her third studio effort, ‘The Album,’ which was kicked off by six critically acclaimed singles:  “How You Want It?”, “Morning”, “We Got Love”, “Made It”, “Bare with Me,” and “Wake Up Love.”  To sweeten the pot, it was lined with 23 tracks and included a “who’s who” of features including Erykah Badu, Kehlani, Lauryn Hill, Future, Rick Ross, Quavo, and Missy Elliott.

Leading Taylor to what industry analysts predicted would be the best first week sales of her career (as we reported here), look inside to see just how right they were.
