Janet Jackson’s New Record Label Revealed

Published: Monday 1st Jun 2015 by Sam

Pop icon Janet Jackson has had the music industry abuzz in recent weeks following confirmation of her new album and world tour.

Like most things Janet, the rousing reveal held back on further details – namely which label the diva would be releasing her fresh material on. [Jackson left Def Jam in 2010 due to creative differences]

The speculation needn’t continue now, though, for Billboard have confirmed the 49-year-old’s new recording home.

Full story below…

Per BB, Jackson’s next offering will be released via BMG.

By and large, the company is most renown for its operations in music rights management and artist songwriting. BMG’s label business tends to see them act mainly as a distributor for acts with their own labels [See: Estelle].

Which begs the question: is Janet starting her own imprint and partnering with BMG solely as a distributor? Time will tell.

What we can say is that we hear Ms. Jackson is set to roll out her next project in a manner different to the usual.

Exciting times!

    YASSSSS MOTHER JANET FROM THE HOUSE OF JACKSON! The original mother of all of our dancing faves.

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* June 1, 2015

      Who’s Janet Jackson?

      • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* June 1, 2015

        @Danni *Rey and it was a genuine question. I don’t know who Janet Jackson is. I know the King Michael Jackson, though. Was Janet the one on Celebrity Apprentice?

      • LOL June 1, 2015

        LMAO THE IRONY OF A LANA DEL NOBODYKNOWSHER STAN ASKING WHO SOMEBODY IS LOL

        LANA STILL WASHING GAGA’S WINDOWS SIS? LOL

      • MUSIC GODESS! June 2, 2015

        THE ORIGINAL… Imitated but never duplicated! Like the many Queens that set the bar where it is including QUEENS like Mahalia, Aretha, Diana, Tina, Patti, Chaka, Gladys, Madonna, Mariah, Whitney , Mary J, Faith, Lil Kim… This generation don’t respect the PIONEEERS.. The legends.. SHAME ON YOU FOR NOT APPRECIATING THE GIFT OF REAL TALENT!!!

      • Sandra June 2, 2015

        Janet Jackson was a singer, popular back in the 80″s and 90″s. She’s kindof forgotten now though!!! 🙁 She’s known as Michael Jackson’s sister mostly. Michael Jackson was her biggest influence. Janet said in interviews back in her prime that she wanted to outsell Michael. Oh boy that backfired. She didn’t even come close to selling as much as him! At least Janet should be thankful to Michael for giving her the opportunity to have a music contract back in 1982. If Janet wasn’t a Jackson, she wouldn’t even had a chance to start a music career (fact confirmed by her first record label). I wish Janet luck with her new album.

      • Danni June 2, 2015

        I think a better question is who is Lana Del Rey? Did some research. She’s been out for almost 5 years and has only scored 1 Top 10 hit? I don’t even know the song. Just for your records… Janet holds the record for the MOST consecutive top 10 hits for a female singer in history. a record 18 back to back top 10 hits (not Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, Beyonce, Rihanna, Britney). Something Ms. Del Rey will never do in her lifetime. By the way, Janet has a total of 27 Top 10 hits…. Feel free to post when Del Ray gets her second top 10. If that ever happens.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Please believe it!

    • jjs June 1, 2015

      If Janet wasn’t in “Control”, Michael wouldn’t later be “Bad” nor “Dangerous”. From 1986 Janet influenced Michael Jackson much more than Michael ever influenced Janet.

      • pat June 1, 2015

        I’d agree. He himself said he’d put on her music n dance for hours inspired to create new moves

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        I love it!

      • Sandra June 2, 2015

        Keep reaching. Lmao. If Janet wasn’t a Jackson, she wouldn’t even have a recording contract in the first place. Thanks Michael for paving the way for Janet’s career.

    • BoyToy1814 June 2, 2015

      The ‘Rhythm Nation’ will NEVER die!!!!

  2. LiptonTea June 1, 2015

    You better come and get these coins I’m offering Janet.

  3. LoveBey June 1, 2015

    I can’t wait for this!!!!! Especially a tour ????????????????

  4. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

    You know a bish had to change her avi back to Janet for this YASS! Idc what label it’s on, Mother Janet is getting my coins!

    • Dirty Laundry June 1, 2015

      No one cares

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

        I love it when imbeciles say ‘no one cares’, because in actuality the people who really don’t care don’t even have the time to leave a comment. You however have been stalking my comments for days and commenting on my avis and who I stan for, so I guess you really do “Care’.
        Do yourself a favour, and get over me sweetheart, because Kelly Rowland isn’t even relevant enough for me to spare a drag for her. Now why don’t you
        do THAT dirty laundry

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        @AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig Yes!!!!! Yes!!
        #TellItLikeItIs,#WhyDontYouTellIt!!!!!!!
        So tired of the haters.

  5. tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

    Ghost whisper makes her return. I hope deep throating that Arabian sausage hasn’t ruin the little vocal range she has. Hope it’s above a dog whistle this time

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

      Bítch I had a Thats-So-Raven moment earlier and I envisioned you trolling today like a dog ass b*tch! You’re obviously the same Gwen Stefani troll that was begging for my attention a few days ago. You used the same struggle ‘drag’ a few days ago; SMH these lazy trolls are redundant, unoriginal and basic. Next time try to disguise yourself better you two-dollar ho.

      • RihNavy June 1, 2015

        LMFAOOOOOO NOT THAT’S SO RAVEN

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        (sigh) you better tag that ass!

      • Shady81 June 1, 2015

        Hell naw not The That so Raven read you better drag Annalise new wig you better drag that hating ass b**** like you a brand new race car at a drag racing tournament.

      • Rowlandstones June 1, 2015

        B**** What? Please I don’t want to drag Jante but don’t ever come for Kelly h**.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

        @RowlandStones mind your mf business b*tch, because you just might catch some of the thick shade that’s in the air. Get with the program b*****, scroll down further because I already posted receipts of Kelly stanning for Janet. I would’ve posted a receipt of Kelly stanning for Beyonce, but she’s been Beyonce’s cheerleader her whole damn life so why fvcking bother. So don’t come in here acting brand new, because this conversation has BEEN over for a hour and I don’t fancy arguing with another imbecile peasant.

  6. TheElusiveLamb June 1, 2015

    I literally CAN NOT wait for this new album! I can’t wait to see the album cover, music direction, live performances, marketing, tour, photoshoots, and etc. I LOVE YOU DUNK!!!!!!

    • pat June 1, 2015

      U just explained why this is a big deal. Janet is about more than singing. She’s a creative force we need to c again. Put us on ms Janet!!

  7. Slay_Hive June 1, 2015

    Werk Janet!! Can’t wait to hear the new music. Beyoncé’s impact tho! She has everyone trying to experiment with creative and surprising releases.????????????

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Baby. Lol. You know i rocks & f**** witchu right? But come now. You know creativity is Janet’s middle name. And surprising, well surprises with every album. Cuz like Bey’s albums, no Janet album can compare to one another. But if you disagree, we can always agree to disagree. 😉

    • SMH June 1, 2015

      Wrong. Janet has been doing the secrecy thing with her projects for years. Her impact on beyonce you mean.

  8. tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

    She won’t outsell Madonna like always.

    • Selenator June 1, 2015

      That’s because JJ doesn’t use controversy to stay relevant

    • Shady81 June 1, 2015

      You know what @Tranet if you don’t like Janet then that’s your feelings but I’m gonna need you to do something for me. Now Step1. Go in yours or your neighbors backyard o.k. follow me on this one so once you find a backyard. Step2. Go directly to the nearest swimming pool. And now finally here’s a two for one special step3. Jump directly into the pool and drown because you’re being very redundant and irritating. @Annalise Keaton new wig just dragged your ass like you were Seabiscuit losing a Kentucky Derby race against a damn Stallion @Tranet do use all a favor and stop relentlessly getting dragged by myself, Annalise and the rest of Janet’s Fans/Stans because the more you come for Janet the more you’ll get dragged and you don’t want none with Janet’s Nation so push on if you don’t like Janet then don’t waste your time clicking on Janet’s post being downright stupid because your reads and shades on her are tired and useless and for that I’m gonna just drop my mike and walk the f*** away because Miss Queen Janet Damita Jo Jackson is here to mutherfucking stay and as all queen’s say off with their head my dear it’s off with your head to you courtesy of miss Janet herself now good night peasant and have pleasant nightmares of Janet and her dancers from the iconic Rhythmn Nation Era. Rhythmn Nationing all over your face with their fancy footwork and for that I am done.

      • Janet. June 2, 2015

        IT WASN’T FOR U LOL… YOU ON JAN SIDE LOL

    • Janet. June 2, 2015

      are we gonna talk how “Janet.” outsold “Erotica” and “Bed Time Story” sales combined… or How “All For You” outsold “American Life”… which one you wanna pick?! chile you tried it and failed severely…

      • Shady81 June 2, 2015

        What the f*** are you talking about? I’m talking about essance the essance that is Janet. What the hell? So exit stage left and dip the f*** out of my conversation while I was trying to get a troll together b**** you tried and failed Miserably now in the words of Janet “GET THE PICTURE…… GOOD!”

      • Shady81 June 2, 2015

        Maybe your comment was directed at @Tranet ghost whisper ignore my rant.

  9. RihNavy June 1, 2015

    I just want to know who’s going around on this post thumbing everyone down? Is IT that pressed? Anyway, “If” is my favorite slow jam by her and “Feedback” is my favorite bop.

    • Toohotfortv June 1, 2015

      You consider “if” a slow jam?

      • RihNavy June 1, 2015

        My bad, wrong song, I meant “Anytime, Any Place”

    • Stephy. June 1, 2015

      IF is not a “slow Jam”… Girl, you must be talking about Beyonce’s IF CHAWL…

      • RihNavy June 1, 2015

        LMFAO! What y’all won’t do is clock my teas today ???????????? “Chawl” had me in tears!

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

  10. tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

    Flopnet “new movement” must be a bowel movement cause she’s not impressing the GP

    • Royalkev June 1, 2015

      Flopnet “new movement” must be a bowel movement
      ___________________________________________

      Yup! … she’ll sh*t all over your favs!

  11. #TeamTinashe Stan June 1, 2015

    I literally wanted to be happy until it said BMG (See: Estelle) idk but I know Janet will SERVE realness on a nice plate with her music.
    I need another “That’s The Way Love Goes” and “If.” Her music catalog from “Control” to “Discipline” is all good so ring it Queen Janet.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Ok, elaborate lol. Your comment is somewhat a cliff hanger. What do you mean “you was happy until you saw BMG”?

  12. Lake Erie June 1, 2015

    (Hollering)!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!! 5x
    I am too pumped!! Can’t wait!

  13. Stephy. June 1, 2015

      CRINE

  14. tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

    She won’t sell. Like Wendy said, in a world of Rihanna, Taylor swift and beyonce, flop net will be lucky to go gold. Nobody wants to her a near 50 year whispering

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Smh. This is Janet Jackson we’re talking. Who knows, Maybe. With all the gimic music being released today, people will be happy to get a actual “Body of work”.
      We’ll just have to see. I’m rooting for platinum status at least.

    • Sean June 1, 2015

      Find a better way to use your time.

    • Sandra June 2, 2015

      Janet isn’t a timeless icon like her brother. He can still sell millions because his name is lucrative. Janet doesn’t have that. She’ll be lucky to sell 500,000 WW

      • Adrian June 2, 2015

        Are you guys being serious right now about Janet Jackson? Do you know how excited her fans are to see her come back. Begging that she’d return??? What makes you guys think this won’t be a successful comeback??? Shes not even comparable and even with the statement Wendy made about the “Rihanna’s” and Taylor’s of the world Rihanna really hasn’t even made that big of a splash since coming back and While Taylor is doing Fantastic she’s no legend. Beyoncé I wouldn’t compare her too considered that she’s clearly influenced by Janet and i could care less as to what she does. I’ve read plenty of positive response about her comeback tour and album from around the Internet and I think that if anything getting that response is a start. LOVE ME SOME JANET JACKSON can’t wait to see her tour.

  15. tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

    Her breath probably smells like curry, spices and nut kii

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      O you’d know that smell very well. 😉
      #PotCallingTheKettleBlack?!?!?!?! Smh.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

        DEATH! drag a bit @Lake Erie!

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        @AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig Lmao! Just a little bit (in my K.Camp voice)

    • Fancy BISH June 1, 2015

      Your breath prolly smell like S%!T lol…don’t come for Janet unless she SENDS FOR YOU honey!

  16. RoyalKev June 1, 2015

    This is looking like it could be the perfect set up for her next project. Janet always did Janet, so it just makes sense for her to release the new music on her own label. Right time, right moves! Love it!

  17. Dirty Laundry June 1, 2015

    Ok and?

    • tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

      Kiii exactly.

  18. Dirty Laundry June 1, 2015

    So glad that troll stopped clinging to Beyonce. You’re a non singing Ghost whisper stan accept it don’t cling to the hive cause Janet gonna flop harder than Ashanti.

    • tranet ghost whisper jackson June 1, 2015

      She could never sell like Madonna

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

      Your Eminem-Stan obsession with me is pathetic, I’ve always stanned for Beyonce and Janet and I’ve had them as avis for months so get with the f*cking program. As your master I’m going to need you stop talking slick before I drag your scalp back to the slaughterhouse to get massacred again.

      https://youtu.be/NZmFOQxALwI?t=59s

  19. Lake Erie June 1, 2015

    @tranet ghost whisper jackson and @Dirty Laundry . You H*** get the f*** off my Janet Post. Everyone else is in here in a happy space and yal MuthFuckas wanna come on here talking s***.
    And that goes for the rest of you haters too. The ones I missed.

  20. Skyfall June 1, 2015

    I’m ready, currently listening to the Janet. Album now.

    Plays Where Are You Now

    • Fancy BISH June 1, 2015

      Chile YAAAAAAS!! Where Are You Now is STILL a bop…that bridge tho…still gives me goosebumps…could it BE that I’ll NEVER SEE you…AGAIN…my love dat was SO TRUE…still I SIT HERE waiting ALL ALONE…by da phone…for youuuuuuu…sing it honey! lol

  21. Skyfall June 1, 2015

    Why are Jelly stans even here? Has she even sold 1m solo albums in the U.S. yet? Is she still clinging to Blue Ivy for relevancy.

  22. RihNavy June 1, 2015

    WHERE DO THESE TROLLS MAGICALLY COME FROM?! I’m POSITIVE at this point that it’s either Sam, David, or Rashad in heaven rotation and their aim is to generate traffic and higher comment volume and re-visitation of post via Stan wars. Y’all ain’t slick.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Wow!!!!! I am so blown by this comment?!! Are you serious? U would have never thought! Like on some real s*** doe. Smh..
      That’s some thirsty s*** tho if you’re right.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      I saw this!!! Lmao! And she kept it so classy too.
      Smh. So classy.

  23. Wth June 1, 2015

    Anyone who posts negative things about ANY artist on here is just plain pathetic! Any way, I can’t wait for Janet’s return.

  24. Suicide Blonde June 1, 2015

    Her comeback is going to be interesting, for so many reasons.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Yes!!! I’ve been craving a Janet album for a few years now. And my prayers have been finally answered! But on some real s***, i had a feeling some time ago that she was coming, I just didn’t know when but I knew it was soon.

      • Just Here For The Music June 2, 2015

        Giiiiiirl I could feel it coming in the air like it was Phil Collins! I’m so excited!! Real talk tho. How in the hell is it even possible to come for Janet? All these people with these lame ass tired drags trying to come for her. They must have not gotten the memo. Dragging the ICON know as Ms. Janet is about equal to trying to cut a diamond with a plastic knife. Good luck b******. She’s flawlessly compressed, cut, and polished.

    • Royalkev June 1, 2015

      I couldn’t agree with you more! 🙂

  25. B2B June 1, 2015

    I’m really excited for Janet. I hope the material is fresh.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      O you know Janet stay wit that New New Bwaybee!

  26. @JanetCIARA_ June 1, 2015

    Waiting for the first single to slay us all!!!!!

    • Kehlani Tsunami June 1, 2015

      Because Lord knows ‘I Bet” didn’t.

      • @JanetCIARA_ June 1, 2015

        Remember when everyone thought “American Helium” would slay “I Bet” as well?

  27. Stephy. June 1, 2015

    @RihNavy, EXACTLY! Where do these TROLL accounts be coming from OUT OF NO WHERE??? They always randomly storm Mariah, Janet or any other LEGENDARY act post(s). I understand Rih & Bey post.. Cause their reighning QUEENS… But, why randomly storm legend post. That’s extremely random as hell

    • RihNavy June 1, 2015

      THANK YOU! I knew I wasn’t the only one. I be peeping these post from a distance sometimes like…ummmmm ????. Cause if you notice, the “new” troll accounts, rarely if ever go from one post to the next, they literally just die off and don’t come back. Which is a bit odd..Before I joined this site, I remember reading that Beyoncé post in December of 2013 that had almost 1,000 comments from random ass people that NEVER came back, which was partially under stable because that was a HUGE event at the time but something in this koolaid don’t taste right Chawl

  28. Selenator June 1, 2015

    YAS!!! QUEEN JJ is coming! If is my favorite Janet song of all time, such a classic with an iconic video. Rhythm Nation too! I love her newer material like Feedback and Rock With U too! Janet is the Queen, she laid down the blue print for EVERY female performer after her to follow! Come slay JJ!

  29. Room319 June 1, 2015

    Funny overlooked tidbit…

    Janet has had her own “imprint/label structure” for decades (JDJ Entertainment)
    — never set up as a home for other artists. One of the few artist (especially female) to own her master recordings.

    check out – http://www.discogs.com/label/443520-JDJ-Entertainment

  30. Selenator June 1, 2015

    This Madonna troll is pressed that JJ’s unintentional Superbowl controversy had a bigger impact than all of Madonna’s many attempts at controversy

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Sure did. Madonna wishes lol. So much for that Drake kiss lol.

    • Lmfao_Hoe June 1, 2015

      Sure did,that SB impact is what created YouTube! S*** Janet should get a royalty check.

  31. Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 1, 2015

    BMG will most likely just be the distributor of the album. The record company will probably be Live Nation or Janet’s own imprint.

    In any case Queen Janet is coming with new material, and I couldn’t be happier!!

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      All hail.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 1, 2015

        Yes love! We must to music royalty! Lol!

    • Royalkev June 1, 2015

      … Very educated guess T.I.T.S!
      I’m so ready for Janet’s musical slayage! #ConversationsInACafe

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 1, 2015

        Thanks love. I can’t wait either! The anticipation is killing me!!

        #Let’sKeepTheCoversationGoing

  32. Danni June 1, 2015

    Welcome back to the world Janet. There are so many artists pretending to be as amazing as you are/were. None of them have yet to make albums as iconic as “Control” “Rhythm Nation” or “janet.” despite many of them pretending to. We are ready. By the time you released your 5th studio album you already had 21 top 10 hits while people like Beyonce struggle to even get 2 Top 10 hits per album you were pulling 7 out of 7 top 10 hits each.

    • Royalkev June 1, 2015

      It’s funny how it went from “many artists pretending to be amazing” to “people like Beyonce”. LOL. Janet did acquire 21 top 10 hits (after 5 albums), but Bey does have a substantial amount as well (15). She’s not walking around with 2! Bey’s also not slacking on that singles chart the way you would like to exaggerate, after all she’s obtained 36 weeks at #1 on the Hot 100 (which places her 7th of all time).

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 1, 2015

        ^^ Agreed!

  33. RihNavy June 1, 2015

    All I know is, I need some new Janet to pair with my Bedroom Kandy vybrator so that I can get my life. Let’s hope this new single does the trick.

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 1, 2015

      NOT Bedroom Kandi tho! LOL you gotta lipstick gurl? #KandiKoatedNights

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 2, 2015

      @RihNavy

      You don’t have the right to call her Janet.

      It’s Ms. Jackson, cause you are SO NASTY!!

      LMAO!

      #KandiCoatedNights

  34. ratedxxx June 1, 2015

    I never been a big Janet fan…but I can admit she had a bigger impact than Madonna

    not in album sales or tour sales wise…but in performance wise

    People cant say Madonna is an attention who’re but Stan for the biggest attention who’re of this generation

  35. ratedxxx June 1, 2015

    im not going to jump on the janet bandwagon….
    because like I said shes not my cup of tea

    but I wish her the best…she is the closest to Michael in performance wise….

  36. Lmfao_Hoe June 1, 2015

    I’m really hype for this, for theses past couple of days I’ve been jammin’ to Albums Velvet Rope, Damita Jo, and Janet. Lord I love this woman, besides Mariah, Nippy, n Sade her catalog is Amazing/ Timeless treasure ♡

  37. ratedxxx June 1, 2015

    One thing ive noticed about this site…people are quick to jump on whats hot…

    Or afraid to say how they really feel in fear of getting dragged over a computer

    meh….

    but album sales always shows whos really full of sh!t

    • Lmfao_Hoe June 1, 2015

      I understand where you’re coming from but at the same time sells should not be people/stans/or fans impression of equaling talent. Many great albums were not big sellers or reached #1 off so quick but those albums alone have lasted over time. That’s why frankly I don’t give a f*** with ” well that’s why my fav sold such n such ect.” Thats good n all but you dont hsve to down others to uplift another for their accomplisments. At the end of the day that does not mean longevity, you’re here today and gone tomorrow.

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Lol. Sad but true.

    • Royalkev June 1, 2015

      I agree with most of that. I’m just not sure how album sales “shows who’s really full of s***”? Some horrible artists win and some very amazing artists under perform. The last 5 years made it difficult to determine an artist worth for people fixated on numbers imo. I actually don’t mind them at all, but the music game is mainly about politics these days!

    I’m so excited. I want GROWTH. I want the social concepts, personal song writing and a whole new theme and sound. I don’t want the “old” Janet, I want the new 49 year old mature Janet. No DJ Musty beats, no trap music, I speak for everyone when I say NO JD. And I know that’s what’s we’re getting, I hope the Café Conversation is the theme of the album. Take your place as Queen.

    O yea, i forgot to say that I am FEELING the f*** out of that Janet pic! Anyone else? Lol. I loved the Discipline era. She killed it.

  40. Chocolate_box June 1, 2015

    Janet is going to slay Beyoncé & Rihanna off the charts for good now!

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 1, 2015

      Why do that?

      Janet is in the legends lane. The other two women are competitors and contemporaries..

    Sony BMG ????????????

    I glad Janet’s back but with the album title being Conversations in a Cafe I’m wondering wouldn’t it be interesting if the album had a mixed combination of all four of her greatest albums with modern twist added to effect 1. Control 2. Rhythmn Nation 1814 3. Janet & 4. The Velvet Rope but with what resenates with her life & world today and what she’s been through the past 7 years should be interesting I can’t wait to hear what’s on this album and I’m especially glad her Jimmy and Terry are back on the four front of this album because I have to admit I may be a Janet fan or stan however you may call it but I’m going to be completely honest I was not a fan of her last 3 albums when she got with Jermaine Dupri she was giving me lazy vocals and no driven emotional power like she normally gave on her last 4 album’s before All for you and don’t get me started on Gil’s Choreography girl bye it just was hard hitting or sensual like her past work, but let’s see what she comes up with.

    • Shady81 June 1, 2015

      I meant wasn’t hard hitting or sensual like her past work.

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        I really liked Rock with you. The choreography was so sensual and smooth. At time it looked like she was gliding. Idk. She never disappointed. But “All for you” was good too! Have you heard that joint on there called “truth”? One of my favorites.

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        But with JD lol. I’m not going to lie nor will I say but he did “try” to recreate a hit with her from another artist he wrote a number 1 single for. I was like, wow. This sound just like that one song. It was still pretty though. I liked it too. It was a different concept but still same sound.

      • Shady81 June 1, 2015

        No @Lake Erie I didn’t hear the song truth I only heard I know the truth with her and Elton John and that song was cute but my favorite song off the All for you album are Doesn’t really matter, China Love, Trust a Try and Son of a gun remix and you ain’t right, but if We’re talking about Velvet Rope thru Control now that’s a list.

      • Shady81 June 1, 2015

        Now as for Gil choreographing Rock with you it meeh so so but it wasn’t better than her past stuff and if you can compare Rock with you dance vs. Miss you Much dance Choreography then I’ll take Miss you much because the foot work was alot more cleaner and more crisper especially when it looked like Janet and the dancers were about to fall over just to pop back up and you can’t forget that epic chair routine in the end Anthony Thomas did his thang on the Choreography for Miss you much And Terry Bixler shut it down with that chair routine especially by having the hat fall on the foot just great epicness all around.

      • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

        Yes! Those songs were hot off “all for you”. I have to listen to her other albums. I bought and listened to her whole “Janet” album and loved it. I loved the velvet rope too. But the others, I only know the singles she released.
        And yes! She made history with that chair. Artist still try to replicate that dance break in their shows to this day.
        Ugh!!! Janet! Love her.

      • Shady81 June 1, 2015

        Yes @Lake Erie Jan’s just two amazing for words and you can’t forget that other chair dance for pleasure principal I call it the stand up and fall over where it all begin in 1987.

      • Shady81 June 1, 2015

        I meant to amazing

      • Lake Erie June 2, 2015

        O yes! And Right! It’s going to be interesting to see what’s next and how she moves now.

  43. Navy Nick June 1, 2015

    • Shady81 June 1, 2015

      When was the last time Monica was relevant 1995 oh o.k. I’ll wait anyways Janet will sell more than your fave Monica.

  47. jj June 1, 2015

    Lies

  48. L21480 June 1, 2015

    BMG? As in BMG Rights Management? The odds were already good that the album wasn’t going to sell well, now I KNOW it will flop. They’re not even a real label. This ain’t the same BMG that once owned Arista, RCA and Jive that was taken over by Sony. This BMG just leases and distribute small independents and hold copyrights. They distributed the release of Backstreet Boys last album, which flopped. They’re like eOne. They haven’t backed a commercially successful release since it was formed. LOL@anybody thinking that some kind of huge comeback is in the works here. She’s not gonna have the luxury of major label power and pampering. Her team is gonna have to handle virtually everything. And good luck convincing radio to play anything from it. I hope her fans are just here for the music and not the glory, because this is gonna be Janet’s “Braveheart.”

    • Lake Erie June 1, 2015

      Doubt it, it’s Janet. I’m not sure of BMG history but I’m sure the DEAL they made with Janet maybe totally different from…… …….. ….. umm….
      Backstreet Boys lol. Or whoever else.

    • Shady81 June 1, 2015

      I’m pretty sure that won’t happen because she owns her musical rights publishings etc. And she has her own brand like Blackdoll Inc and JDJ Ent. So she’s a really smart business women she knows what sony did to Prince and Her brother Michael Janet’s not stupid if the deals not legit she would leave it be but as for management she might already has her own team set in her grasp she always was in control of her empire.

  49. Junior Hubbard June 1, 2015

    I made a Janet video displaying how her Rhythm Nation album/movement is still relevant to society today. Enjoy

    • Lake Erie June 2, 2015

      Love the video. I don’t know any other artist that sings about what I just saw in that short clip. Smh.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) June 2, 2015

      Both ‘The Knowledge’ and ‘State of the World’ videos are amazing! Great editing and narrative!!

      You did a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing Junior!!

      • Junior Hubbard June 2, 2015

        Thank you so much. share it and spread the message. 25 yrs later and it still hits harder than what’s current

  50. JMar June 2, 2015

    i hope she does a song with Ciara and release as a single that would be epic so excited for her return go.Janet

  51. Sandra June 2, 2015

    Her album won’t sell, lets be real people. She’s not a superstar legend like Michael is. She’s an american icon, she’ll sell some in America but not world-wide

    • Essa June 2, 2015

      She won’t even sell that much in America. I predict no more than 35k first week.

    • Shady81 June 2, 2015

      @Sandra you wake up at 3:34Am in the morning just to troll o.k. but you do understand that this is a new day, age, generational time period where illegal downloading takes place s*** is being leaked etc. Many artists are not going to sell 10, 20, or even 30-40 million albums anymore in this day and age not even 8 million. And as for you not saying Janet’s not a superstar legend bull s*** the lies you tell. That you dreamt while waking up to type your shenanigans, Janet is that superstar legend not only in America but worldwide and anyways if Michael was still here he wouldn’t sell that well anyways since you talking about sales especially at this day in age. With all the new stuff that I just mentioned concerning this generation plus that stuff he had pent up against him old child molestation charges which were dropped I might add and his abrupt weirdness to life itself along with the strange controversies that plagued him so with all that he definitely wouldn’t sell to well since you wanna talk I mean look at his last two albums, and he wasn’t even here to oversee or approve the music producers just took leftover vocals that he’s thrown away. At least she still can sell more then the ones beneath her she a f****** legend with nothing to prove she’s been there done that and still remains successful.

      • Sandra June 2, 2015

        @shady81 lol it aint that serious. I love Janet . She is definitely a legend. What last 2 Michael albums u talking about? You mean the posthumous ones? “Michael” sold 3 million WW and “Xscape” sold almost 1,8 million WW and had a #9 hit, that aint a flop.

      • Shady81 June 2, 2015

        Those numbers you speak of on Michael’s are still considered flops since the man use to sell within the 20, 30 & 40 millions hell even invincible sold more than those last two albums and had bigger hits with You Rock My World and Butterfly so there try again.

      • Sandra June 2, 2015

        @Shady81. Nobody sells 30 or 40 million off an album anymore. In 2014 selling 1,8million is good, not a flop. It was among the top 15 best sellig albums last year
