New Songs: Janet Jackson – ‘Rock With U’ & ‘LUV’

Published: Friday 1st Feb 2008 by Sam
It had been announced previously that fans should hit up Janet Jackson’s official website today at 1pm (US) / 6pm (UK) for a surprise of some sort. It turns out the ‘surprise’ was two new tracks from Janet’s highly anticipated ‘Discipline’ album – ‘Rock With U’ & ‘LUV’.The first, ‘Rock With U’ is a futuristic techno-esque cut. Fans of the Kylie Minogue sound, will eat this up, as will the European market. Perhaps the most surprising thing about the song is the fact that it’s produced by Jermaine Dupri. Very alternate to the sound we’ve come to expect from the hit-maker. Not the best Janet track, but satisfying, all the same.

‘WOW’ is the what came to mind after listening to the Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins produced ‘LUV’. I’m actually still playing it as I type. The beat goes HARD. The vocal arrangements are on-point too, with Janet’s harmonies complimenting the gritty production. My gut told me Darkchild’s involvement with the project would yield great results – case example, this and ‘Feedback’.

If these are indicative of the rest of the album, Ms Jackson is onto a winner.

Hit(s) or Miss(es)?

    AGGGHHH! Thank you for posting these Sam, I can’t wait to listen to them! This is one of my most anticipated albums of this year, can’t wait to buy it. Mary didn’t disappoint me with “Growing Pains” and I know Janet won’t with “Discipline”!

    Luke, it’s totally agreed that Discipline is the most anticipated album of the year for me, and I’m so excited to hear these new tracks from her. Rock With U is decent, but not anything stellar. But LUV IS RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING!!!! It’s REALLY CREATIVE AND REALLY GOOD! I like the fact that her tracks are really diverse, and I can’t wait to hear to whole album- freakin 22 tracks! It should be amazing!

    Oh man, this CD looks like its going to me on FIRE!!!!!!! I like like both tracks but it’s something about that “Rock Wit You” that made me want to get up and dance. This song will be mixed and remixed by every house DJ across the world. Janet is BACK!!!! Thanks!

    Kind of split on this one! LUV is a wicked track but Rock Wit U had me thinking WTF am I listening to?!?!? While I’m still gonna cop the album I just wish that she would start putting some ‘janet’ era ish out again!
