From The Vault: Janet Jackson – ‘I Get Lonely’

Iconic. Innovative. Influential.

These are three words that would best describe Janet Jackson.

Today’s From The Vault pick is an demonstration of the indelible imprint she has left in our beloved Pop Culture. ‘I Get Lonely’ from 1997′s ‘The Velvet Rope’ is this week’s selection.

The work of then-fantastic four Ms. Jackson, Jam & Lewis as well as Jackson’s ex-husband and frequent collaborator Rene Elizondo, ‘Lonely’ is an authentic R&B track that sees Janet lamenting over being away from an estranged lover. A classic Janet “baby-making song”, its dramatic horns and sultry bass make for a sexy-sensual atmosphere which contrasts – in the best way possible – with Jackson strong yet vulnerable vocal delivery. The singer’s trademark harmonies are in full force as well. A triumph.

Releasing the track as a follow up to Dance-Pop mega hit ‘Together Again’ was quite the bold move at the time, but turned out to be a risk worth taking as it became the diva’s 18th consecutive Billboard Top 10 smash – peaking at #3 – and claiming the top spot of the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B chart. In the UK, the R&B jam fared rather well too reaching the fifth position of the Official Singles Chart.

As it is often the case with the stage-blazer, the accompanying visual for the tune is as memorable as the tune itself. The Paul Hunter directed music video presents a flame-haired Janet in various futuristic sets including one where she – alongside her female dancers – engages in some silky smooth choreography, proving yet again that she is no one-trick-pony who can only do intricate high-octane routines.

From the fashion and hair & make up to the choreography, it is indeniable how impactful this video has been and is continuing to be: Britney’s ‘Me Against The Music’, Kelly Rowland’s ‘Motivation’, Rihanna’s ‘LOUD’ era look anyone?!

We won’t state again how seriously we’re anticipating Ms. Jackson’s return to chart glory. For today all we will do is salute yet again a tremendous artist who’s vision and audacity helped change the entertainment landscape forever.

    YASSSSSSSS Motha still has the other chicks beat. The Velvet Rope is a classic album by it’s very definition. There’s a reason it’s ranked among Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

    As well as Aaliyah, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Kelly, Britney, Mya and Gaga so let’s give proper dues now. All these modern contemporary R&B and Pop chicks have emulated/replicated everything and I mean everything Janet and Madonna did in the 80s and 90s

    I think Janet has a better tone, ad libs, runs and harmony’s than Ciara. Although Ciara has catchy songs i don’t really think she can sing. I always imagine janet singing Body Party and just how good it would sound.

    Stronger voice? Since when? Janet was actually nominated for Grammys for her vocal performances. Janet incorporates different styles of dance in her routines. Ciara? I think not. Janet writes, produces, composes, choreographs, etc. her own work. Ciara? I think not. Janet actually starred in hit movies. Ciara? I think not. At 28 Janet was already iconic and became a trendsetter. Ciara is 28 now and isn’t even close. Janet covered all kinds of topics in her music. Ciara? well I think you can see that they’re not actually all that similar like people think. Ciara does have potential though.

    your delusional is so ridiculous it’s not even funny. Ciara has been involved with the writing/production on all 5 of her albums as well as her choreography. Ciara does have a stronger voice/tone than Janet, Janet’s range is slightly wider than Ciara’s. All Ciara lacks is commercial success at the moment. Her albums, videos and live performances have always gotten praise from critics. All she needs is a strong label/management that’ll push her on a mainstream international level instead of limiting her to US urban markets.

    Being nominated in vocal categories at the Grammy’s does not mean your a strong vocalist. Only one of Ciara’s vocally stronger songs ever got submitted for a Grammy vocal category and that is Body Party. And I, Promise and Sorry were never submitted for any Grammy nominations. I just hate when ppl always say Ciara can’t sing when Janet herself lip-synced until The Velvet Rope Tour. I love Janet, I own 7 out of 10 albums but let’s not act like Janet is a stronger vocalist than Ciara because she really is not. Ciara has always sung live even if she did bad, while Janet has not. Yes, Janet’s music has covered a wide array of topics that very few artists of any genre are covering but Ciara is heavily involved with the writing/production of her albums which is why she’s won 3 ASCAP Awards. If Ciara took more control over her image/promotion/marketing years ago, she could be selling millions of albums and have several world tours and #1 singles and 7 figure endorsements but she doesn’t know what she wants and that’s why these labels keep playing her. Janet knew what she wanted and strived to achieve it, that’s why she sold 150 million records, won 7 Grammys, scored 35 Top 10 singles on the Hot 100, 7 #1 albums and 5 world tours

You brought up her not having any writing credits and then compared her to Ashanti and Mya who haven’t won any awards for writing while Ciara has won the top honor for songwriting and then you mention Rihanna in a writing debate when she can’t even write grammatically correct Tweet. All you can say about Ciara is her album sales are low. She already has won numerous awards, has hit singles and sold millions so you can keep trying tho… It’s cute

    The only thing Ciara and Janet have in common are soft voices and that they both can dance!
    Janet also had 3 albums flop in a row, Janet’s first three pre-A&M records were flops.However by the time Janet was Ciara’s current age she was a Star,while Ciara’s career is fading more and spare me “Body Party”…Vocally Janet’s voice is more emotive and less robotic. Neither are known as vocalist,but Janet’s voice is just better,Janet’s songs are WAY better and Rhythm Nation not only shits on anything artistically ever released by Ciara it also has outsold everything Ciara has released combined.
    Janet had hits even while Mariah,Whitney,and Celine were ruling the charts.
    Ciara at her peak doesn’t even scratch the pop greatness of Janet and the way it’s looking never will! I like Ciara but please no more empty comparisons.
    Janet>Ciara and it will remain that way

    I’m a Janet fan and trying to come for Madonna, only make us seen jealous and bitter of her, Madge is the Queen of Pop, that doesn’t make Janet less iconic and legendary, Madonna worked like nobody for her throne and she deserves, also Thatgrapejuice if i want to named a Britney video that is Janet inspired, this would be the last, especially since ‘Me Agains’t the Music’ is like a tribute to Madonna, remember that she dresses in man style in her videos ‘Express Yourself’ and ‘Vogue’, if anything her dancing style was similar to Janet, this coul have been a beautiful post but most Janet fans keep hating on Madonna, btw, Britney’s Overprotected remix video is the real Janet inspired video.

    Not Tranet stans trying to make her happen as Queen of pop when that title belongs to Madonna. Janet has 0 memorable songs, new generations don’t even know about her and she lacks classic soongs like Like a prayer, Like a virgin, Vogue. And lol at her being vocalist when she can’t sing to save her life, that whispering over a basic track is not singing.

    One of the greatest female artist of all time. My # 1 of all time. Janet’s success doesn’t come by accident, but by her continual efforts and talents.

    Janet is a one of a kind, versatile, artistic and innovative artist that no one will ever fully be able to emulate. You have Britney, Ciara, Aaliyah, Mya and many others that came along and have developed a similar style as JJ, but none of them had the precision Janet did! Janet was damn near perfection!

    Every black pop superstar after Whitney & Janet’s ground breaking entrance into the music scene in the 80′s has been able reach such high levels because of these ladies contributions to the craft. They both was EVERYTHING any aspiring pop icon could ever dream of being like! They were the moon and sun in the sky of music! Period! TVR was just another masterpiece(like RN) that made Janet the Ultimate Pop Queen! She slayed – no shortcuts, no easy ride, no relying on relevant artists for a hit or inflating her worth! She’s truly earned 100% of EVERYTHING she’s given credit for in the record books.

    Lil’ Bow Wow put up those same numbers with his first two albums, so where tf are you coming from with this dumbass statement? Body Party is basic Ciara s*** and it showed that she has NOT grown as an artist at all. Ciara really is a one trick pony.

    Wait, Ciara Stans coming for Janet. Lmao! That’s like some unknown boy dance group coming for MJ. Lol… Sit ur ass down. R u mad that every female artist in the industry even to the lowest surpassed Ciara in talent, sales & gross. Ciara is still hanging on the edge cuz she wants to hang on Janet’s legacy real tight to claim her own. Unfortunately that b**** has nothing to live for so she minus well take the plunge. Her stans are so pist that the 4 most successful black females in the industry, Whitney, Janet, Bey, Rhi have been certified icons while this b**** no where to be found.

    The war between Madge stans & Janet stans will never end. Madge may have the Queen of Pop title but Janet is music royalty. Can no one denial that.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m a huge fan of the iconic Miss Jackson but Her Madgesty, Madonna is the QUEEN and in another league than any other female singer. Whitney/Mariah had the voice, Janet the dance moves and countless others sex appeal etc but Madonna was the perfect combo of all these qualities and that is why stans of every artist come for her and compare to Madge.

    Janet is definitely an under appreciated icon. With all the GaGa / Madonna comparisons in the media I can’t believe Rihanna never is compared to Janet

    IGL is a freakin classic. I love Janet. She is a true artist. A lot of people are claiming that her last 3 albums flopped. Damita Jo sold 3 mil worldwide. 20 YO sold 1.2 million worldwide. The numbers are small compared to her prior hits but it great compared to today’s standard. The only one that did not reach #1 in US was 20 Yo. It was #2. I Want You and Feedback are platinum selling singles. I believe Call on Me as well. A lot of you focus on the negatives and not the positives.
