      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

    Yea I Want You was a good track. Janet had never really had a doowop kinda track. I'd love to see her explore that lane again. I personally LOVE mid tempo & R&B ballad Janet & ive always looked forward to that but I feel it's been a LOOONG time since we've gotten that right vibe. 
    Lessons Learned is great and I love it but it's still not  IGL, FHTF, Anything, 24Play, ATAP, IWY, Lonely, When We Ooo etc. I strongly like Promise of You because it feels like a conscientious The Body That Loves You. 
    But I think Janet needs JJ/TL as a foundation while bringing other ppl into the fold at the same time. They did it with Unbreakable...so I don't get the argument. Also DJ is a good album & saying it didn't have a concept while the entire thing seemed to be about "new" love which was JD & the island vibe was representative of the trip she says she feel in love with JD on.

    I wouldn't mind another IWY. It's like Janet's You Don't Know My Name by Alicia Keys.

    Regardless, the point remains AN(DS) was exactly what the Pop/R&B market was pushing and making hits out of all year for everyone BUT her for 1 reason, no support

    IWY is shit. Period. Damita Jo is shit in comparison to Unbreakable. The critics agree. 🤷🏾‍♂️
    You need more proof than that. Sorry but you can’t discredit Jimmy/Terry bc of one interview 
    He was nominated 3 times but whatever. You don’t like em. Gotcha. He worked well with Janet compared to the hott producers of yesteryear.

    Same. Honestly I really wanna know how this song came about. In the midst of All For You, the subject matter is really specific and random. The sonic fusion of that traditional Guzheng over that sensual R&B groove is honestly the reason we have Kpop (jk)
    But even the lyrics are so beautiful and poetic. The song really places you in a small mountainside village in china as the trees are still wet with dew!
    to top it off those RICH harmonies. There has got to be so many takes on this song. Also note how in the chorus, the bottom melody (posted above) goes OVER the top melody on the last "... china love" SDFGHFDGHJGJKL;
    Like sooooooo much effort into an obvious Bside. It honestly is a highlight in her discography.

    IWY is lyrically weak, production is all over... vocally it was better live.. It had no business being a single and it is shit compared to 105% of the Unbreakable album
    imma ignore the comparisons to Ciara & Britney Spears bc the former was in their prime and the latter was blacklisted on radio from 2001-2003

    Sonically IWY is shitting all over unbreakable. That iconic mid 2000s Kanye sound is the reason we are still dealing with his annoying ass today.
    Also why that song went platinum with little to support and flopped on the charts. Don't really see anything on Unbreakable doing that hun. 
    And lmao at "No Substance." Just because its a love song doesn't take away the exceptional songwriting courtesy of John Legend and Janet's flawless delivery. The production value of that song knocks out 75% of Unbreakable and like I said last time... That's no shade!
    And as far as JJ&TL tacking their name on basically completed songs, Jimmy spilled his own tea on that Kelly girl's radio show when he talked about how Night came to be on the album.
    And Dem Jointz and his ZERO Grammys has ONE songwriting credit on as you put it a "song with no substance." (ha) As far as his Dr. Dre credit? sure.
    Take that away, still a flop producer lmao 
    you are just ignorant i can't

    Background vocals on songs have really become an interest of mine lately. Id love to hear the harmonies/hidden vocals of this song in full.

    I love this mix and the video was so nice.
    I really liked the quality of the video clips and the clips that were used were perfect. Great editing. Keep it up, you've got skill!

    I want you is fantastic, but yea no it sounds foolish to say it's better than Unbreakable the album (hell it can't sit with Unbeakable the damn song) Unbreakable moves as a better album, has a solid theme, it's lyrically deserving to be among her best, to act like it's not 1 of the highlights of her music career is to declare ignorance. 
     
    Britney & Ciara (as well as a number of 1 hit wonders and hits in general in that year) got hit's that year with the same formula. Critics also loved it, most of the GP had no knowlege of it because it got no radio play.... Janet's lessors were getting hits off of the same type of content Janet was making, but she only didn't because of the lack of support, the same really would've happened had she released "Rhythm Nation" at that time.

    I like Jimmy & Terry to always be involved. 
     
    But I wouldn't mind her working with some of today's hottest producers like I.D (4:44)

    You lost all credibility and are an idiot unless you have concrete proof (which you don’t) that the legends tacked their names on songs 
    Unbreakable is a Janet album. Up there with AFY, & janet.... surpassing the five shit albums (1982-1984, 2004-2008)

     IWY... a song with no substance better than 75% of Unbreakable?  
    Critics >>>> you
    That’s fine and well but Damita Jo was the tipping point. AN(ds) is weak lyrically. “Pop me like you’re popping a cork” cringeworthy 
    Ignoring his work with Rihanna & Dr. Dre much?

  20. LawdToday added a post in a topic Janet’s At Kendrick Lamar’s Concert in LA   

    I'm kinda just flabbergasted at y'all really thinking Janet Jackson is incapable of making a great album w/o the outdated JJ&TL. The patriarchy is kinda real? 
    Y'all like to throw Discipline as an example, but Janet wasn't even involved? That was just a Rihanna album package Def Jam was saving for her that they told Janet to record ghjkhgjkl;. Not a fair comparison. I just find it funny y'all are so anti other producers, but your favorite songs from Unbreakable are the one that JJ&TL just co-produced aka tacking their name on a basically completed song aka what y'all get mad at Beyoncé for doing LOL.
    Anyway, if y'all really think Unbreakable is a "Hip!" and "Fresh!" sounding album who's shelf life is gonna compete with her best then their is honestly no need to keep up with this discussion.
    Our tastes are just... different. LOL!

    You are so immature. I'd really wish you'd stop bringing Beyoncé into this argument. It really doesn't help your case here when it comes to the music sis 😂
    and honestly the work she has done with outside producers shits on all the songs that came out of the Unbreakable album. I Want You? Easily better than 75% of Unbreakable... and that's really no shade. Sure unbreakable as an album flows better than previous ones, but that does not mean the music is greater. 
    And lmao at you throwing shade at All Nite. Most of her discog is about love & sex. God you are a big contradiction. 
    and Dem Jointz is not a winner of 3 Grammys. A flop producer who's main credits come from Kelly Price and Jordin Sparks. Not the sound Janet needs. 😂

    Which part of my argument is flawed? Direct quote it and bold it
    Janet needs Jimmy/Terry. Just like Beyoncé needs a summer camp of writers
    Proof Jimmy & Terry stole credits?
    Hit makers always fail with Janet from Kanye West to NeYo to JD and every other 2000s producer that was hott 
    Dem Jointz worked with plenty of A-listers including Dr Dre & Rihanna.. 3x Grammy winner as well

    No. AN(DS) was not a hit. Whisper vocals, terrible lyrics... about sex. SNORE.. Add homophobic reggae and it still sucked. The fans loved it and that’s all that matters. The general population was like NAH
    Island Life was never considered a single, isn’t performed on tour, and didn’t have a music video. The song is cute tho so you got me? 
    I’m not looking at top charters. The quality just wasn’t there
