      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.

Building the Perfect Janet EP

10 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

We all know that new music is coming but we don't know how many songs, or what they will sound like. So for a minute let's pretend you had the opportunity to create a Janet EP - what sound would you like to see Janet tap into? The rules are 5 - 8 songs: you can use songs you feel would be great remakes, samples, or just the sound/style of the song as your examples. Let's play!

I think Janet could have a dope track with a sample of Give Me the Night - it's classic, timeless, but still has a very current beat -

I think Janet could remake this song or sample it, Love U 4 Life sounds VERY similar (almost like sample) but I still think she could do more with this:

I could see Janet doing a modern day "Throb" with a sound like this, while Night was pure classic for me I can imagine her exploring this:

I hear a potential modern day Got Til It's Gone vibe to a sample of this song:

I feel like Janet has needed a GREAT soulful but current ballad/midtempo for so long something like this would be EPIC!!!!

I've always wanted Janet to do more with jazz. She's stated before that one of her favorite genres is Brazilian Jazz so I'm surprised she hasn't really done much in the genre. 

The jazz heavy songs that Janet does have like SIT, MLITR, and even FBB are great and I'd like to see her try to expand on this.

I've listened to some songs in a sub genre of jazz called electronic-jazz, and Janet could do something great there, I think. (Sorry for this ramble)

She has mentioned some Brazilian music. I've heard some I think she could really work with. She's said that the closest she feels she's come to this is The Body That Loves You. I love that & Promise of You has that same kinda vibe. Idk how many ppl are familiar with KING but there's a couple songs they have that Janet could benefit from the sound - 

Carry On & Mister Chameleon too

I've wanted Janet and Kaytranada for so long. Something with Robert Glasper would be cool too

I love it! They always play on festivals here in the UK. 

An original song would be great, something similar to 'Together' from his debut album featuring AlunaGeorge.

okay while I think there are far two many choices to go thru for this thread to be effect BUT with some patience and attempting to hear you out, a few thoughts -_-

George Benson very 70's laidback with R&B vibe, Id like to hear Janet doing something like "Blame it on the Boggee" if she doing 70's

Patrice Rushen has been done before by Biggie and done so well, its not worthy revisiting for any artist

Lite Spots is the most experimental song but Janet may be too out of brand "fit"

Rock Your Body sounds like "The Knowledge" but not in a bad way, but in a been there done that way <_<
