    I wish she or Jam&Lewis would do a new remix of Skin Game, her vocals are everything if you heard the acapella version (I have it but cant find it and its not on youtube anymore) , but the only problem I have ever had with the song is its production is WAY too heavy & too much period, its obvious Jam & Lewis were deep in their zone, but they drown out some really great vocals & lyrics Janet gives with having SUCH a loud, heavy & busy beat. I think it would actually make a amazing breakdown in like one of the socially conscious songs

    Cissy Houston shades Janet in 1991

    Eh, wasnt triggered or uneasy about it (If Whitney replaced Paula's name wit Janet I'd feel a ways), but with what I know bein a fan both Janet & Whitney for more than half my life, they both felt insecure about what they felt they lacked that the other thrived in. Whitney felt insecure about choreography & artistry in production compared to Janet. And Janet felt insecure about her voice compared to Whitney (as we heard her say in that audio documentary). They are both QUEEENS of different styles & flavors. What Cissy said wasn't even that disrespectful, I read it as "don't worry about her strengths, you got your own". The tone & wording was disrespectful.....but the point wasn't to me. What Whitney said about Paula was as disrespectful as it was 100% true tho

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    .......I think we got the answer to "whats taking things so long" yesterday...her dad died & has been dying. We'll get the song when we get it, thats her dad, and what we know is at this time the family is going through it all & they're pulling through together, the song can wait. Summers just begun, and she has events & dates lined up, but lets give her her time.
  6. Deborah McDuffie was a product jingle queen in the 80's, and has this kickstarter to get her autobiography released with a accompanying CD/DVD with all the jingles, and apparently she worked with Janet for a Mountain Dew jingle in 1983. Working on My Janet Chapter! Janet Jackson was almost 16 when I first produced her for Mountain Dew. At that time her record producers had been doubling her voice because it was so thin. Doubling has a very distinct sound, which I personally didn't like. It gave the sound a digital, electronic feeling. I decided to record her in a pure setting and surround her with the best voices out there. Luther, James Ingram, Howard Hewett, Davis Lasely, Jennifer Holliday, Cheryl Lynn, Deniece Williams and myself all sang back-up on this Dew it To It Mountain Dew jingle I wrote for her in 1982. I produced her for Mountain Dew again in 1983. Janet Jackson's dad Joe called me one day saying the powers that be at A&M wanted to know how I got her to sound so good without doubling her voice. Ha! Ha! I'll never tell...maybe in my book! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1782025718/reign-of-the-jingle-queen-book-with-companion-cd/posts .....................................................I wanna pledge now lol. I wanna hear what that whole thing sounds like lol

    "Made For Now" Single Dropping Soon

    "island inspired".........hmmmmmmm Rih Ri?
  8. Someone posted the 2nd Jingle Janet did for Mountain Dew. I think its a tad sped up & the end is clearly missing pieces THEM VOCALS!
  9. Oh shit.......what nobodies even brought up that just hit me listening to Bruno now Their harmonies together>>>>>>>>>>>
  10. Words......do no damn justice. Dance song, ballad, groove, pop, R&B, funk.....the possibilities are endless for this & the slayage is dripping from even their names together.
  11. All that xenophobia over Randy tho LaToya, Randy & Jermaine...... Anything coming from those 3 I cant take completely serious. Granted of the 3 Randy's not as bad, but what these 3 have in common is history exaggeration & extremeism. Im a Jackson-ologist & got a love/appreciation for all 9 (even Joh Vonnie) but those 3 are the ones who's words carry the least weight.

    #JJ12-Early Expectations/Speculations???

    Same here, but truthfully all her best albums have this kind of life to them.

    #JJ12-Early Expectations/Speculations???

    I meant to post here just randomly that most fans get way hype about tours & performances & videos more than anything else, but this is mine, new Janet music creams my corn like nothing else, and the prospect of new music ! I love the moments before the 1st release where its like "......whats this even gonna sound like?" A whole new album, new chapters to her bible, new insights, new questions, new answers, new lessons, new slayage.

    The Official Legendtina Aguilera Thread

    Really, she didnt? So you found at least 1 source directly from her or her camp calling either of the 2 buzz singles released official 1st singles? Why have you sitting on such info... more bending the rules huh, time is "irrelevant" now keep on tryin cause that dont work either, cant compare a song released with tons of promo to a 2 week old release, thats like a beginner or bitter troll tactic song is "bad" according to who? You? What are Billboard & Rolling Stone & most critics saying? Sooo according to you, how any song charts is a reflection of an artists talent now? Yet the reviews are hyping her up for her voice, is that what all these reaches are about?

    The Official Legendtina Aguilera Thread

    Ah continuing to make up the rules, yet again you brought up iTunes over buzz singles the DAYS after they were released So songs released and heavily promoted a month ago are the same as a song released 2 weeks ago now In your opinion, and what you're going by is suggesting a artist is only "the shit" if they dont flop. If she does or when she does nobody who think shes the shit is gonna stop over sales.

    The Official Legendtina Aguilera Thread

    But Itunes charts mattered when it was about buzz singles somehow... Youre letgit admitting youre making the rules up as you go Plus what does the older songs positions have to do with anything, theyve been promoted heavier, that makes no sense, itd make more to compare to songs released the same time (why am I having to teach you to troll) Why do reach so hard for a chick you think so little of? Like damn she got a tighter hold on you than she does on any chart

    The Official Legendtina Aguilera Thread

    I LEGIT love that you waited for this song to fall out of the itunes top 20 (which it stayed in until this weekend) to troll. That needs the explaining, your word on flopping hard isnt credible, if it didnt make itunes top 20 (or #1 on there period) and with it being the 1st single youd have a point, but since it did you having to wait weeks to say anything about its positions is all too telling

    The Last Days of Michael Jackson....

    I watched and was disappointed, the last 30mins of it is what I wanted the whole thing to be about mostly, and they just spent sooooo much time talking about what we allllll already know & theres dozens of documentaries about.

    “Who” Appreciation Thread

    1 of her best songs, doesnt fit AFY (which it was recorded for) but I think its really a great track
  21. Nearly every song from TVR & AFY that wasn't a dance song (with the exception of IGL & Everytime)

    The Janet Jackson Praise Thread

    WOWWWW just the other day I was wondering what Janelle thought of Janet, cause I see & hear the influence in the work, but I see she credits Prince & MJ most. So this confirms what i had hoped, that she loves the queen.
  23. Yea I really have since 1st listen in that "its so bad its funny" way, I love the beat and I cringe/smile EVERY time I hear "SHES SO COOL IN HER TIGHT BLUE JEANS, GONNA BE IN TROUBLE WHEN OUR DADDY FINDS OUT" thats FIELDS of the corniest corn This one hasnt ever been confirmed but I 80% believe that Janet & LaToya sing this chorus & its Janets voice turned up higher than Toys. Its too in key to be just Toy, and it, you know.... doesnt sound bad lol. And compare the chorus voice to those verse vocals lol for YEARS Ive tried to appreciate that song cause Janet co-wrote it & sang background.....but Toys voice keeps getting in the way of my appreciation.
  24. Janet wrote this song with/for LaToya, did the demo & backgrounds. Its told that Janet teaching Toy how to sing a song is what got her noticed by her father to be a singer, I suspect this is the song. The timing matches up (released in 81, same year Janet got signed) And Janet did background vocals for this hot mess of a song I love and is 1 of Toya's best. Note about this performance, Janets singing background, Rene is dancing background & they met on this trip... (Janet is shown in the clip briefly). Its always funny that Janet can mimic Toy perfectly (talking and singing) like I can only tell which is Janet cause shes the 1 in key but all 3 of the sisters have a very similar tone in their highest register.
