    • 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.

ICYMI: NEW MUSIC SOON!

152 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

 

The STATE OF THE WORLD tour is a continuation of the Unbreakable tour and will include fan favorites from her chart-topping ‘Unbreakable’ album, an array of her socially conscious music she’s released throughout her career, and other smash hits and

soon-to-be released new tracks

with a state of the art live production

 

 

So we know it's at least two songs... at bare minimum 

I'm really hoping for a mid-tempo (Take Me Away/Well-Traveled)

and/or 

A dance track: AN(ds)... MYM 

What sound would you like to hear?

I guess I was correct to pass along the info of Gil revealing on his IG livestream that he had heard new tracks from Janet!

We're not discussing how many new tracks... that's impossible to know from the information provided.

As for what themes the new tracks will cover, I think the clues are there.  State of the World tour, so Janet is likely still in an Unbreakable/ Rhythm Nation/ Social Conscience kind of space.  But she did also say it's not political.  

This is a huge reason why I'm such a fan of Janet, and the whole Jackson family.  For all the achievements, they are genuinely concerned with the legacy of their work, and music that makes a difference to people.  After the monumental success of Control, Janet, Jimmy and Terry could've just followed the formula, and cranked out another hit album... that would've been the "easy road" to super stardom.  For a then 22 year old Janet... wealthy virtually her entire life... to feel the pain and struggles of others so deeply that she would write an album like Rhythm Nation still amazes me today.  At the time when her fame and influence was nearing its maximum, she chose not to focus on herself, but to use her voice to make this world a better place.  It's no secret those messages are still incredibly relevant and resonant 30 years later.  

Other artists out there may technically have more hits (and the luxury of not having suffered a gruesome industry blackout), but from a qualitative measurement, their catalogs don't measure up to the Empress of Pop.

Y'all are ruthless. :umm: 

This sounds great. She should just release a few tracks, doesn't need to be attached to an album or bigger release. ^_^

So it's either 2 tracks or a mini EP. Lol best way to go. I want to create a hypothetical thread if you could choose 3-5 songs for SOUND direction that you think would be amazing for Janet to explore what do you think would work?

Any new music is something to be excited about, especially if it's from the Unbreakable sessions.  Good stuff.    

My GUESS would be that "Take Me Away" would be included on the new tour set list because, let's be honest, with the current "state of the world," who the hell hasn't thought those very words to themselves?  Even without Janet's song in mind.  I know I have on the daily.   Also, from previous work, I could maybe see New Agenda being tossed in there for good measure.  

She could really do (and I honestly hope she does do) several other Unbreakable songs.  I know the casual fan won't want to hear a lot of the new stuff, but I just think it's important to have Should have Known Better (preferably directly after Rhythm Nation), Black Eagle and Gon' Be Alright (nice positive closer, perhaps).

But Take Me Away is about Wissam & them being in love & him "taking her away" from all the other bs.

Should we expect her to not perform No Sleeep as well?

so then by that logic, should we expect her to not perform No Sleeep as well?

One is a single the other is a lesser known track off the album...so I would think it would feel more like a dedication. It's the reason we have never heard her perform 24Play. We beg for it but in an interview she said indirectly it makes her think of Rene. 

Kinda like how we never hear Go Deep.

I know we're not talking much about this but I had to post it because I went back & read the interview and wish she would feel comfortable giving this song live:

“TWENTY FOREPLAY”?

"IT’S KIND OF A SWEET AND SOUR THOUGHT FOR ME, WHEN I THINK ABOUT WHAT THAT SONG REALLY IS ABOUT, WHICH I REALLY CAN’T TALK ABOUT BECAUSE I’M REALLY NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT THAT PERSON. THERE’S HOPE IN “TWENTY FOREPLAY,” AND THEN I ALSO HEAR THE SADNESS IN IT AND REMEMBER THE SADNESS. BUT I LOVE THAT SONG."

That's not fair to say. I guess she can't perform any song from Damita Jo - Discipline (not a bad thing) or anything from 1989-1997.

Not that this thread is about the tour... it's about the sound of these new records

She did this interview with Vh1 during the Discipline era. I found it on Janet-Love. Vh1 does not still have it posted but Janet-Love does.

I was also thinking it's unlikely she would sing No Sleep (and Take Me Away while we're at it) partly because it "served it's purpose" last time round and the fact that's it's based around Wissam. Not whilst theyre currently going through a separation ...

By that logic, Shania Twain would never sing You're Still the One or From This Moment On since they were written with her husband who left her for her best friend.  Lives change, but human emotions transfer to new people sometimes.  Take Me Away, at least parts of it, can certainly have multiple meanings as well.

Shania Twain is not Janet Jackson. We're talking about consistent behaviors and answers Janet has given about music that seemed to be about her exs. She's never performed Go Deep since VR, she didn't perform Twenty Fourplay, she's avoided Someone to Call My Lover. 

It would be nice if she changed this method but it's been pretty consistent to JANET's personality. This has nothing to do with artists in general.

STCML was a hit song, her last top 5 hit actually, I think the issue comes in with what album did certain songs come off of, and she performs those that are classic and others more current, so great songs get left out, we should do a poll of songs to see which ones people really want to hear live
