Janet Jackson and her team of writers are often praised for raising awareness for society’s ills through song.
One of their greatest moments? ‘What About‘, a cut in which Jackson tells the tale of a woman facing the horrors of domestic abuse.
Today, decades after its release, the song still moves the star to tears.
Watch what happened when she performed the song live on tour hours ago below…
What about the times you hit my face?
What about the times you kept on when I said, “No more please”
What about those things?
What about that, what about that?
