    MADE FOR NOW AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE - THIS IS NOT A DRILL

    After some Twitter Sleuthing, a couple of things... 1) Janet has a new distributor?? If you noticed, on the iTunes Pre-order, MFN is copyrighted 2018 by Rhythm Nation under exclusive license to Cinq Music LLC. Cinq Music is Daddy Yankee's main distributor and until recently has really been working mostly in the Latin American market. So I'm unsure if Janet is still distributing under BMG, or if she, or all Rhythm Nation have jumped ship over to Cinq. We'll need to watch and see what happens here when we get more song details, but it's sufficient to say that Cinq Music has been a big fish ever since Despacito went crazy. 2) They're lining up an aggressive, global push, and the evidence is starting to roll in.

    MADE FOR NOW AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE - THIS IS NOT A DRILL

    I'm so happy for it though!! And I think it's important to take note that Janet's team isn't just doing promo at random. Choosing to construct a short summer tour around festivals? Accepting a big award from an awards show whose audience is really mainly kids at this point (Radio Disney)? Appearing on MTV's revamped TRL? She's working specifically to connect with younger audiences. If it were just about money and sales, she'd probably focus on her core supporters. But whatever she's got cooking for these future projects, it's on her mind and her heart to reach out to the younger generation. She's coming up to the plate to be that role model that so many young people are longing for today, and as a life-long fan, it makes me appreciate her even more.

    Janet For Super Bowl 2019 Halftime Show

    I STILL don't understand all the haterade towards Gil. SOTW is incredible... I get the story and how everything is stitched together. I think this is some of the team's best work in a long time, and Gil has a TON to do with that. You can't make every fan happy 100% of the time. I personally liked the flow of SOTW1 better, and felt like it conveyed a more solid story, but SOTW2 is still fucking amazing, and an even better marriage of new choreo with the classics that everyone loves. But if y'all got all these issues with his socials and his opinions then STAY OUT HIS GRILL!!! #GotTimeTho

    Janet For Super Bowl 2019 Halftime Show

    In all honesty, the best thing that Janet's TRUE fans can do is to STREAM THE FUUUUUUCK out of her new song. Put it on the charts, support that thing as much as possible. A true worldwide hit will cure any and all ills. If Janet's people have done their job right, then she has the potential to get a major hit (especially in markets outside the US that are much friendlier to female artists over a certain age and artists of color). If the song hits, the SuperBowl and everyone else will come a-callin'. My one worry with Made For Now is that it could be straying away from her base a bit. In the R&B market, her network of support has never really wavered, which is why a song like No SLEEEP can see a huge chart reign on Urban A/C (aka Adult R&B Songs from Billboard). But it's been a long time since Janet has strayed from that market with a single, if all indications are correct on Made For Now. Of course she's Janet, so she may bring the market with her, but you never know. Well anyway, I'm ready to #STANfam when this new song drops. Janet, I gotchu...

    New Promo Pic 8/8/18

    IF Janet and Daddy Yankee were to perform at something like the VMAs, tomorrow would make the most sense. Outside Lands is August 12th, so that gives Janet and the team a full week to rehearse and prepare for the show while people freak out about the new video.
  11. Can't B Stopped and New Agenda would've SLAYED at Essence Fest. For all the incredible things Janet and her team do achieve with the State of the World tour, I do think they could do a better job of tailoring to different audiences. MOST performers could never, but Janet is world-class and doesn't get phased by a quick change of one or two songs. I think for SOTW2, I would keep Escapade in the permanent set list, and had songs like New Agenda, Black Cat and Black Eagle at the wayside. Those would've played well/ would play well in your younger festival setting like Panorama or Outside Lands.

    Oh dang... Yeah just seeing this. Best of Number Ones has Alright posted for 4,836,710. I'll do that, and look out for others.

    In the Streaming era, album cut Someday Is Tonight, never performed on ANY tour or live to our knowledge, is more popular than classic Alright.

    Janet is filming MADE FOR NOW music video in NY

    What would be nice about a combination Live premiere, song drop and video drop is it should allow for the song to do well on the charts and be Janet's highest streaming era work yet. Perfect set up for a World Tour. Smart strategy if that's truly what they're going for.

    Janet to Headline Global Citizen Festival

    They do a set, though it'll probably be a shortened. I want to say JayZ's set was an hour. I watched it on MSNBC, but they do a TON of cut-aways and kind of dip in and out. Live streaming is probably the way to go. And I JUST downloaded my Global Citizen app. I can get to NYC if I earn them FREE tickets. Global Citizen is such a great fit for Janet as an artist. Even if all of the #JanFam can't make it, we should participate in some of the app challenges.

    New Dates Added - THE OFFICIAL STATE OF THE WORLD 2 TOUR THREAD

    So no lie, I’ve been watching the ticket sales since this tour leg started, and i was legit worried about Charlotte. It’s been hovering around half full for a while, even up to a few days ago. Was also kinda worried that 2 North Carolina shows would cannabalize each other. But Janet put out those social media posts, and of course gave an EPIC performance in Raleigh. Them ticket sales SNAPPED UP so quick, and the House was nearly full before showtime. This shit is really happening!! Hats off to Janet and her incredible team... they’re getting the formula right on how to boost ticket sales. Will be interesting to see her boxscore numbers.

    Who wants to meet Robyn L Baylor?

    Hey I'm thankful for Robyn L. Baylor. Thanks to her words, Queen Janet was able to provide us with one of the greatest Clap Backs OF ALL TIME!!

    The Fate of State of the World [Tour Continuation]

    And UCAP was a world tour, so that’s probably a big reason for the calculus... keep it lean so you really can go worldwide without running Katy Perry-style overhead. I think I said this on the SOTW 1 thread, but I do think a few accent pieces (both costumes and sets) would make a significant impact, even if they only serve to help vary the textures of the visuals. I’ve always loved Janet’s past treatments for Alright... how she’d typically do a zoot suit, but going from black in the RN tour to bold colors on the JWT through AFY. It’s also an iconic dance piece that really changes the flow of how the dances look. So something like that would be nice. Would be great to see a scaled version of a whimsical section too, again mainly as a variation of texture. Height differences in stage level, like she used to have with the huge TV boxes, would do wonders to give it a more grandiose feel. IMO that’s the other main reason that Unbreakable felt like a bigger production. She was up on the staircases and they took full advantage of them at times. SOTW is just such a great tour and Janet and her team are already doing the work at a superior level. If they ever wanted to open the budget, those are the places I would start we’re I on the team. But given the unique set of burdens that she has faced in her career, I understand why it’s so important to proceed with caution as well so I’m here for it either way.

    The Fate of State of the World [Tour Continuation]

    So a while back, I posted my "fan guesstimate" of how much Janet has to spend per tour performance... How much is Janet spending on operating expenses?? My rough estimate based on what some of the more expensive arena tours tend to cost... 10k to secure the date for a venue, 20-40k to rent the venue on performance day 20k to pay for the venue's staff. 100k per performance = pay, living costs for the tour staff 30-50k some sort of cut to LiveNation, possibly paid beforehand to guarantee the tour. Total operating expenses = $200k per show Tack on to that one less dancer, slightly less intricate costumes (as they'd have to be performing in the heat of summer) I suspect this is still close to accurate, with one significant exception... 3 of the shows were a guaranteed net for Janet because she served as the festival headliner. So starting out this leg of the tour ahead is a big plus. But equally as important? 2 of them give her huge promotion throughout the local markets, buzz to festival circuit devotees across the globe, and exposure to new (younger) audiences that are less familiar with her INCREDIBLE, WIG SNATCHING, LIFE GETTING catalog. In summation, I'm ok with a break from the pyro if it means MUVA and her crew can take a little more home for their own pockets.
