    3 Deep Cuts Janet Needs to Perform Live!

    I’m not a fan of Can’t B Good but SloLove & Lonely I’ll take any day! Even Take Care but I don’t need it but wouldn’t mind. She’s damn near given me every track I’ve asked for live! Literally.

    Ye Ali Says He’s Working On A Janet Jackson Song

    No matter what Janet says in interviews she knows exactly what it’s going to be. She knows when it’s coming and MANY projects are a “work in progress” often up to the week before they release

    It’s funny that you go up for Janet yet this entire era with everything she’s said and done you’ve been a complete contrarian to. You didn’t even know what the fuck the breakfast club was, like MANY of the people here, but it has millions of followers and advit supporters. You literally think your fucking small ass bubble is a reflection of what people are collectively experiencing. There are artists who a whole group of people don’t listen to yet they sell out stadiums. Markets can be abundant & diverse According to Janet RnB will never die and it is her genre. “It is “our” music” according to Janet herself. So if I’m far up their musical asses what the fuck is she? She’s mentioned them in about as many interviews as she has Jimmy & Terry. Not only as ppl she supports but people she would love to work with. She has even taken her time to PERSONALLY go to HER concert. You OBVIOUSLY don’t listen bc you would know Daniel Cesaer isn’t making much sexual music. Its not my opinion that’s smug it’s that when dealing with a condescending ass hole you have to talk to them at their level. You have complained since this entire process started. You take shots at everything & still you don’t get how an EP can be working in Janet’s favor, again due to your bubble, so you call it a waste. Fuck outta here.

    You’re literally not someone who has any reputable opinion on RnB & to some degree music at all. Your opinion is usually catty and uninformed. Jimmy & Terry’s contributions are not significant enough to the point where they’re seen as lead producers. Period. Lastly HER just performed to a crowd of 10k people. RnB is very alive and well. You’re very detached and live in a bubble. Nonetheless, an ep makes complete sense for her strategy it doesn’t make sense for you because you can’t grasp how it works.

    Every album has some RnB on it. Every single one because Janet is an RnB artist who was about to cross to pop & Pop itself is nothing but a blend of multiple genres that were made Popular. Yet in recent years Janet hasn’t had a solid or classic - on repeat RnB ballad or mid tempo. HER & Daniel Caesar’s lane is a very good lane for Janet to play in. I want to remind you that you were also against Janet working with anyone but Jimmy & Terry because of the albums you hated - yet you have Made for Now. You’ve been against the EP idea, yet you’ll be bumping it & very happy with the roll out. Stop discrediting before you give it time to be experienced. Before you even take a listen.

    Besides the fact I completely disagree with Damita Jo being anywhere near a bad album...idk what you would call RnB Janet that MATCHED up to her other RnB music. For me, I’ll take - I Want You Take Care No Sleep im sure I’m missing some but if you’re not familiar with artists like Daniel Caeser and HER you should listen to their music. It would be GREAT to hear Janet dig back into those lanes.

    Also - @Dal have you seen it’s official that Maroon 5 are the Super Bowl halftime? I’m not saying this to be an asshole but I really want everyone to realize how deep the super bowl affected Janet’s life. Her redoing it doesn’t feel like a win for her…it’s a bit traumatizing and she’s worked hard af for the last 14 years to distance herself from even being mentioned or correlated to that event at all.

    Janet saying she wants to work with Daniel Ceaser & H.E.R. Really has me hype that she’s even thinking in that direction. While a good amount of what’s “being worked on” is up tempo stuff. Those artists specifically would give Janet the RnB vibe I feel she hasn’t captured in awhile. No Sleeep great RnB but it’s not IGL, FHTF, ATAP...those staple tracks she has. I think those artists have very dope RnB roots. I hope they’ve inspired her to create within those lines.

    The Official BMI AWARDS Thead

    It doesn’t air on tv. The thing is, besides the tribute you wouldn’t want to see it on tv. It’s not that good & to MOST ppl they wouldn’t get it. Its a very industry and amongst your peers award show. Publishers, publishing companies, writers, producers, etc. are the ones being awarded. It would be boring to the general public. It also doesn’t fully move like the avg award show. Janet was honored as an icon…but this is such an honor because it’s actually for her writing and MUSIC crafting. The guy gave a CRAZY stat about her music, something along the lines of having 6 songs with over 12 million radio spins & 3 songs with like 18 million spins. To put it in perspective he said you would have to play those songs back to back on the radio 24/7 for 68 years. To reach those numbers. I’m going to speak with someone to clarify how that stat breaks down but that’s what he said.

    The Official BMI AWARDS Thead

    I attended tonight’s BMI awards - Honest to God, it was the BEST TRIBUTE Janet has EVER received in her entire career. It was FUCKING EPIC!! Janet said so herself. She was teary eyed & this wasn’t a “being nice” moment she meant every word - “I have had so many tributes over my career, and I am so blessed, but this was the best I have ever seen. I’ve never seen anything like that.” The tribute opened with Ciara, giving a speech to open the tribute up & introduce a group of young dancers. Literally about 50 kids ranging in age to about late teens. Then H.E.R. came out and performed Black Cat on a guitar, then she also sang Anytime Anyplace and KILLLLLLED IT!!!! Next, very randomly, they had Jessie Smollet, perform & he opened it up like the Doesn’t Really Matter at the VMAs, but just the dance opening. Then he performed That’s the Way Love Goes & a piece of Alright. Then they had, Normani perform PP with the mirrors and the chair and everything she KILLED IT! She didn’t pull the chair stunt off and nearly fell but her recovery seemed a part of the act. She did great. Like great. Next was Justine Skye & she performed Let’s Wait Awhile, KILLED IT!!!! Great vocals! Make up was reminiscent of Janet. Very much so. The mole the eyes everything. Then they closed the performances with TEYANA TAYLOR who performed IGL & it was everything you’d imagine it to be. She even had a wardrobe malfunction, little joke - they covered “all” of Janet’s highlights lol. Then Missy gave a final speech and introduced Janet. Janet’s speech was heartfelt & very beautiful. She looked amazing. All the artist wore variations of her look in some way or another. It was so epic. You could see Janet was taken aback and everyone there in the industry kept talking about it after it was over.

    Janet pays homage to MJ's "Remember The Time" in a new Skit

    I wonder if the video will be longer. Kway seems to have “something” big coming this evening at 5pm PST

    I learned she recently fired someone, I learned she got semen in a jar from a “fan”. I learned she still has an admirable space when it comes to JD. It’s not much, and these interviews aren’t made to be much but that one seemed like they were cool in the radio world of relationships. That bit he tried to pull off was just not going to work & childish. Janet’s soft, gitty, & shy persona still has her coming off childlike…so every once in awhile she has to remind she’s grown & doesn’t want to play along.

    People respond to you harshly because you are condescending your opinion - Solange does not have Janet’s fan base no...but the formula works the same. A large fan base that you’re struggling to bring out INTERNATIONALLY means nothing in dollars & cents. Everyone in the fan base is under the misconception that Janet just isn’t touring the world, don’t you all think she’d LOVE to maximize her money? They think Janet is so huge she can do whatever she wants, also not true. She is a legend forever and always, but the business is a business…an unfair, harsh, & fickle one. People in general are not buying music, then add to the fact that people are not really buying Janet’s recent music - she has to pivot the approach. Leaning on your accolades and repeating the cycle for fans who still are not enough to satisfy your agreements is not smart. An EP is going to give her more leverage than just haphazardly dropping an album. I’ve been saying it for years it’s much smarter than just throwing albums at the wall when only your diehards are listening.

    Music, from business to budget to Janet’s global fan base, was different during those eras. She could do whatever she wanted and was signing the biggest recording deal in music history. It’s not the same approach. A lot of people see Janet as the “aunty” Janet - artist. You just don’t see the value in EPs but they work more than you realize. Not from the reviews of people but from what it does for the artists and how they can leverage it for the business on the inside. Many fans crave more from artists after an EP thats great. Solange’s True is a perfect example.

    You’re someone who advocates that shouldn’t live in the past or discuss much of what “they remember”. So her doing an EP while it is new (for her) it’s the equivalent of her having b-sides to her old music. With the major difference being, she can/should test the waters for her ultimate goal. To explain best I can, no matter how much money Janet has/makes with touring the states or wherever in order for her to be a viable music partner in business she has to show she’s still marketable…she has new music partners & team & label. That I know she wants to grow in many ways. The EP is like a trampoline, I promise it will make sense, when you drop albums dismally & can’t pull back in your international fan base enough to tour like you want…you’re losing in the end. So give them something bite size, do visuals with it, put enough power into it with collars/presentation & start more tour dates. It does well, now you have traction again…give them even more because they’re hungry again. If they don’t receive what you did, cool…it’s only 5 or so songs…pivot a little. It’s a way to invest at a medium size package yet see big package results. Part of it I’m sure is to grab a little bit of an audience that she doesn’t currently have due to age gap etc. but the other part is because a mainstream interview should be saved until she is ready to drop EVERYTHING. It would start a snowball effect that would burn out shortly after. This process is small & mighty. The interviews aren’t really about shit but the single & that she’s coming - I had a baby, he’s so lovely, I’m working on something - it’s in motion, I am a legend - I’m being awarded, & I’m not done with music. Btw, yes I still look good. Breakfast club, ABC, etc they don’t want those details they want - you got married & divorced, what happen, what’s with the religion transition rumors, was there any kind of abuse…what has made you relationships go this way, let us see your son...then the “she’s back” is just a benchmark of the interview.

    Not necessarily - see it this way an EP is inconsequential. You’re presenting an appetizer like someone said, and it’s not about sales. It’s not about recouping it’s about promotion, awareness, testing, & creative experiment. An album costs more not just financially but once it’s released you are not testing you are providing. If people don’t connect with it there is no where to move you have given them a full project. Doing an EP + visuals is like a reminder & a way to see if the team’s direction is on course. Now - costs is not just about Janet being rich there’s new partners involved. Also no matter how well UB was done it wasn’t a decent seller…most will say because of promotion and baby, partly true but there’s STILL another group of people she will want to wrangle in. Watch her work, it makes a lot of sense. MANY artists do EPs.

    It is true that Janet’s decision to do an EP will have nothing to do with the availability of another artist. She’s been in the game forever and is a legend herself she wouldn’t rely on the collaboration of another artist to stop, change, or redirect the type of project she’s doing. So you’re right in the fact it wouldn’t be the REASON for an EP. Where you’re wrong, like I said to you before, an EP is not a waste of time. EP’s can be very strategic, affordable, & smart moves to test your sound.…give visuals for to bring people back in the fold & create a ramp up buzz. I’ve always said Janet needs to drop an EP. As it all rolls out it will all make sense. There’s no reason that cant be possible. That is a very realistic strategy, but the Bruno situation is not they why or how behind it. Remember there’s artists bigger than Bruno she’s considering/planning on working with.

    Lol, to each it’s own lol. Ive listened to him consistently, didn’t care too much for him until after the Dame Dash interview. I started seeing him grow & now I fux with him heavy.

    Janet Will Be on BREAKFAST CLUB!!!!!

    That’s completely untrue he has been who he is over the last few years. It’s easy to prove this true by just going and looking at content from that time frame. Not to mention that allegation was proven false by DNA & yet ppl will still believe and spread it because they don’t like him. It’s kinda like the Janet & her first child rumor. Ppl like to hold whatever feels good for them to believe. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.www.complex.com/pop-culture/2018/07/charlamagne-tha-god-dna-test-from-rape-case-revealed Not to mention one of the women twitter tried to claim he “admitted” to raping was his current wife. She called the station & she cleared that story & rumor up as well.
