Simply be the first person 2 send an e-mail 2 firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct answer 2 the following question under the heading “Rock The Bells: Chicago Contest”. If you don’t win, you can always BUY tickets HERE! Thank you for participating and good luck!
Name Nas’ highest charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 AND their peak position from BOTH the 1990s AND the 2000s.
(In other words: Part 1 of the answer is Nas’ highest charting single/peak position throughout his career in the 1990s and Part 2 is his highest charting single in the 2000s).
UPDATE: Contest closed. Thank you all for the submissions and congrats to Ross F. for the correct answer (1990s “Street Dreams” peaked @ #22 and in the 2000s “I Can” peaked @ #12). Remember 2 BUY tickets HERE!
Send an e-mail to email@example.com with the Subject "RTB Chicago Contest" with the answer 2 the following question:
What is The Roots' highest charted single on the Billboard Hot 100 in their entire career?
For the answer to be considered correct, it MUST contain the song title AND correct number of the single's peak on the Billboard Hot 100. It's as simple as that. It likely will require some research but that's part of the game. The first correct answer will be notified via e-mail and I'll make an announcement on this post that the contest is closed. Also note that I'll be away from my e-mail for a lil' bit this evening but by nite's end I'm sure this post will be updated. Good luck!
UPDATE: We have a winner! Congrats to Trevor B. - the correct answer was "What They Do" which peaked at #34 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1997. (Source)
Thank you to the great response from everyone. If you didn't win, no need to worry because we will be giving away ANOTHER pair of FREE tickets next week! As always, keep it locked 2 GWHH for more info.
