Throwback: Whitney's Billboard Hot 100 This Very Exact Week In 1997

As we were coming of age and grew up singing and performing at local talent shows, festivals, church, family and friends homes, one of the many songs that we used as vocal warm-ups was this Whitney Houston timeless and classic, " I Believe In You And Me". So for this reason alone, it is why this song holds a very-very special-place in our musical hearts. Our memory, present, and future will always love Nippy for teaching us the technique and spontaneity to exercise our God-given born with talent!

"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 believe it’s time to pay tribute to Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Believe In You & Me.’ Penned in 1982 and first brought to fame by The Four Tops, ‘Me’ -a moderate success for the legendary R&B group – was revamped and revitalized once Houston put her signature belt on it. Tapped to kick off the singer’s third soundtrack album in less than 4 years, The Preacher’s Wife’ (starring Houston & Denzel Washington), the tune was released in December 1996. Less than a month after its release it shot to the top 10 of the Hot 100 where it would meet a #4 peak this week in 1997.

Marking a personal milestone for the pop icon as her 16th top 5 hit, ‘Me’ eventually earned a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America and lodged itself as a “fan favorite” among the singer’s most prized hits. Look inside to relive the tune and see who joined Houston in the top 25 this week 22 years ago:" -
