    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      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.

Alert! ? Alert! ? Alert! ? 

This morning Gil was live streaming on IG and stated that he had just heard some "new tracks" from Janet!

Also...when a fan told him that she couldn't wait to see them perform in Brooklyn, Gil replied with "we can't wait either!"

If that ain't legit confirmation, then idk what is!

Yesssssssss

I hope it's a new album

A re-release would be pointless,  the album is almost 2years old and the theme for that era served it's purpose.

!!!

I want nothing but good reviews for the tour, time to shut the Naysayers up about her being unreliable .

I wonder if it will mirror the RN1814 Era, with the all black wardrobe, minimal staging, huge screens, pyrotechnics ect.

Seems fitting since she named the tour after the albums key songs.

She'll get good reviews on her tour. I'm not worried about that at all.

I hope it's a combination of Unbreakable and RN. I want new (more) outfits than just the two she did for Unbreakable. I didn't get a chance to see her bc she postponed my date due to her blessing

I remember going back and forth with you time and time again about everything under the Janet sun back in the day (not that long ago actually)... but for your sake, I genuinely hope you finally get to see her this/next year.. getting seated in the front row with my wife and babygirl was a moment we'll never forget (especially when Janet spoke to my daughter and I!) and I hope you get to experience that for yourself again.. cheers!

A re-release would be better. That way ppl will know she released an album in 2015.

This is the news I want, personally as brilliant as she is live, shes my fave artist, so I welcome all the new material. Re-release wouldnt be a let down, but I got what I needed from it, everyone who matters that knows of it loved it, and thats what I wanted a album better than the era (she hadnt had that in YEARS), & im ok with that being THE main objective, quality music.

Fuck yes.  That is the icing on the cake. 

I also hope its a new album

She could even do like an 8 track EP on itunes.  That would be considered a new album as well.

She should re-release the album with new tracks to have it chart again. Since it's an independent release and she's bundling the cd with merchandise, it'll make sense to re-release it back into the public's consciousness while on tour. The album will easily chart every week like it was doing before she postponed. That would salvage the era and would be a better look if she toured with a re-release instead of just a 2-year-old album.

I agree. She could do a simple EP nothing too hectic. I'd be ok with 5 songs but 8 would be epic. Just enough to get her point across & have some new material. I wonder the look she's going to go for & even though she has a song called State of the World I wonder if that would be the music project theme.

disagree, sorry Janet has Jimmy and Terry and a number of producers who would love to work with her, considering all the fans have gone through and yet we stand by her, there's nothing wrong with a new album, doesn't have to be long, but Im sure she has plenty of material to consider, release it independent as Unbreakable was chart another number 1 debut album earning Janet her 8th number one debut album

A new album will most likely flop. There's no buzz for a new Janet album. No sense in releasing a new album she'll most likely not promote. A few new tracks on a re-release will suffice.

"Salvage the era"?  Are you talking about the tour, or the album?  Unbreakable went to Number 1 and gave Janet her 40 Hot 100 hit and longest running Number 1 on any genre chart with No Sleep.  Sure it wasn't a million-seller but let's not get confused and say the album wasn't successful.  

But let's be clear about chart expectations going forward.  Now that all of the charts rely so heavily on streaming, it's going to be tough for artists like Janet to have the chart success that you see from folks like Ariana Grande or Harry Styles.  Janet's fans don't spend every waking moment on social media trying to boost her YouTube and Spotify plays.  On today's Billboard charts, that's how you get to "Number 1" absent a monumental sales week.  

And even when limited to Streaming, there's a lot of inequality built into the Billboard Charts.  Remember how the Dammn Baby video took over Facebook, yet it missed the Hot 100 entirely?  It's because it's YouTube views were low, and Billboard doesn't count Facebook video views into it's streaming data.  The only plays that matter to them are Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and a few other services.  They don't count Tidal either.  

Unbreakable is my favorite Janet album, and I personally would love to see a re-release.  But don't expect it to garner some huge chart position.  From that front, Janet would be better off doing an album or an EP, then combine with a new video and some lead-up promotion.

there was no promotion around Unbreakable not a single interview done, and yet it made it to number 1, every album Janet has put out over the last 2 decades has been a top 3 debut so there's no reason to believe a new album with 8 or so tracks couldn't chart well. Besides from Unbreakable the songs that did get released didn't do much on the hot 100, the only good thing that did succeed was "No Sleep" which did well in the AC format. And lets not forget even then during Unbreakable some people didn't know she had a new album out, there are enough fans to buy a new album she will hit number 1 again and that's good PR too

She doesn't need to rerelease Unbreakable it would just look like a bad effort. An EP gives her room to not do a heavy role out but also just enough to make a point, get in & get out, plus new songs to perform. 

5-8 tracks is plenty & maybe some interludes that give the EP depth - something that allows her to narrate the message or make it cohesive. Also, fans have dealt with inconsistency with touring but the whole "what fans have gone through" - EVERY thing that has happened effects Janet more than fans. This is her career & life. We don't have to support. That's a choice, there's no entitlement to supporting.

Control had 9 tracks and remains to this day a great album. I think we all would favour having less tracks on a record but have them executed well than 15 plus mediocre songs or interludes. She could easily do 7 new songs and add a couple of remixes and have a solid album.
