At age 17 Mandy Moore released the lead single for her third album Mandy Moore. It received acclaim for a more adult approach to her sound, but commercial performance suffered. "In My Pocket" incorporates Middle Eastern flourishes with a club friendly beat. It was a top 40 radio hit.
Destiny's Child welded a rock groove to their R&B vocals by kicking "Bootylicious" off with a guitar riff from Stevie Nicks' classic "Edge of Seventeen." The result was a fourth #1 pop hit for the group. Stevie Nicks makes an appearance in the video and the clip also highlights a number of Michael Jackson dance moves.
Although he had plenty of album sales success and critical acclaim, it had been nearly 10 years since Lenny Kravitz reached the pop top 10 until the release of "Again." It reached #4 and won Lenny Kravitz the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal. The song has a slow but propulsive beat and features a Lenny Kravitz guitar solo.
