What Happened November 29th In Pop Music History


It’s November 29th and these are some of the things that happened on this day in pop music history:

- In 2014, Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, knocking her “Shake It Off” from the top spot. Swift became the first female artist to replace herself at No. 1 on the chart.

- In 2001, ex-Beatles guitarist George Harrison lost his battle with lung cancer. He was 58. As a solo artist, Harrison had pop hits like “My Sweet Lord” and “Got My Mind Set on You.”

- In 1986, Bon Jovi earned its first No. 1 hit when “You Give Love A Bad Name” topped the Billboard Hot 100. It was the first single from the band’s album Slippery When Wet.

- In 1994, Mary J. Blige released her sophomore album, My Life. It was nominated as Best R&B Album at the Grammys.

And that’s what popped on this day.

  • Reimagine Winter with Kitchener!

    This year has been challenging for our community. We haven’t been able to gather, socialize and celebrate like we’re used to. More time spent indoors may be making us feel a little more isolated from our community. So, we’re reimagining how we experience and enjoy the winter season. Reimagine Winter offers activities, attractions and programs that give community members the outlet they need during these challenging times. Kitchener is a vibrant and resilient community, and the winter season is still ours to enjoy safely. Let’s reimagine it.
