  1. Opening acts? Let's worry about if they gonna open the doors first.
  2. Sis, don't even attempt to check my credentials. You can fabricate all you want. I been following Janet for 30 years. Membership on this forum that was created like 3 seconds ago don't mean shit. R&B Junkie was never even thought of as the first single.
  3. It was always intended as the first single, and yes it was always intended to be on the album no matter what some of y'all think about it. "It's terrible but it's gonna be a buzz single." Y'all don't even attempt to make any sense.
  4. Child, there was no such thing as a "buzz single" in 2004. The first song out was the single.
  5. They played JALW because that's the song they were sent. They didn't magically get demo CDs of JAWL for no reason. R&B Junkie was never going to be the first single.
  6. Well there's a serious case of missing the fucking point. Arguing against what I just said is the opposite of everything you're always trying to say, dumbass.
  7. All bullshit aside, y'all really expecting someone who is notorious for cancelling to sell out shows? Put everything regarding markets, venue sizes, promotion, reviews, or her status as a legend aside, and you still gonna have many people saying "Nah, fuck that. She just gonna cancel." You think anyone can name the latest tour from whomever you consider a legend, let along cite any information regarding attendance? She's doing shows. It's all good. She ain't gonna be around forever.
  8. No they don't. And in fact, the reviews from her peak touring years are actually the most critical. She got the most hate during the janet. and All For You tours. Mostly because the professional reviewers were typically straight, white men, but I'm just saying...
  9. Woo y'all can come out now. No longer do you have to pretend his big-nosed ass was cute beyond a quick once-and-done glance. No longer do you have to pretend to be happy for her while she cancels yet another tour. No longer do you have to pretend like you give a fuck about anything but another album.
  10. The album version is heavenly. The single edit, even with the extra verse, is neutered. It took everything that was special about it about it and turned it into average bland 90s R&B.
  11. Discipline is trash from beginning to end as a Janet album, but it's enjoyable enough if you ignore that it was from someone who is supposed to be so involved in her craft and puts out albums that are "about where she is at that point in her life". For me, it will never grow to be anything beyond a collection of songs by a great artist who was on a creative break at that moment.
  12. I had the opposite reaction. I love the song, but repeat plays really lend themselves to the realization that the vocals are really kind of irritating. The male voice refrain is annoying, and Janet's garbled verses are a shame. This is kind of her worst vocal production since the dire Weekend, and that's a shame because the lyrics are great.
  13. I would be irked that she's promoting her siblings when they don't reciprocate, but since their promo would be worthless anyway, I guess it's a mute point.
  14. I kind of classified this song as "un-remixable" like some of her other ballads or midtempos. The I Want You remixes were total off-tempo garbage and the only decent remix of With U I ever heard was an unofficial one by the long-lost Juanki. This is actually kind of cute though.
  15. LOL. Any rumor out there about Janet silencing people is automatically invalid since this deluded crackhead comes out every few years with the same bullshit. If she wanted to shut people up, this fool would have been eliminated 20 years ago.
