The Flashback Fridays #1 Amy Winehouse ft Jay-Z - Rehab (Remix) (2007)


As always with what I try to do with The Flashback Fridays, celebrate songs from half a decade to decades ago period, meaning from 2017, a look back primarily on songs from 2007 or 1997 unless for a special reason.

So with that said again, it is another flashback to 2007, with the massive song from the late Amy Winehouse that propelled her to stardom here in the United States.

Though the original "Rehab" came out in October 2006, it didn't reach American shores until March 2007. The remix with Jay-Z added more terrific popularity to the growing Winehouse wave in the early stages of the 2007 summer. It established the Southgate, London native to a bona fide name in the music game.

With star pop beat making Mark Ronson's production, no question this was the full arrival of Amy Winehouse.

So, your first Flashback Friday choice this week, it's Amy Winehouse and Jay-Z with "Rehab (Remix)."

The Flashback Fridays #1: Hurricane Chris - A Bay Bay (2007)


This week's Flashback Fridays first choice is another throwback to a decade ago at this time. Take it back to 2007 when 18-year-old Hurricane Chris came on the scene. And though his first single would be the highest point of his "one-hit wonder" career, it still is a memorable (despite being just 28 now).

So anyway, it's the Phunk Dawg produced debut (and only) hit from Shreveport, Louisiana native Hurricane Chris, "Ay Bay Bay", your first Friday Flashback song and video this week.


This is The Whole Delivery.

The Flashback Fridays #1 for 6/2/17: Rihanna feat Jay-Z - Umbrella (2007)


Take it back a decade ago, with the album and the single that was the turning point for Ms. Fenty's career.

It was the lead single for her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, and she just celebrated the 10th anniversary of her turning point album being released on Instagram a few days ago.

And it's only more fitting that this is a Flashback Friday choice this week, with her being at NBA Finals Game 1 and Kevin Durant having to slap down that staredown rumor hard (damn you Robert Littal).

Anyway, it's your first of several Flashback Friday choices this week. It's Rihanna and Hov with the Tricky Stewart/TheDream/Kuk Harrell produced classic, "Umbrella."
