Chart Check: Janet Jackson’s ‘No Sleeep’ Slips Out Of Hot 100 In Second Week

Published: Thursday 9th Jul 2015 by Rashad

With streams, radio adds, and hype in tow, Pop queen Janet Jackson‘s comeback single made a royal entry onto singles’ charts last week – not only gifting her 40th entry on the tally, but also her first mention in almost a decade. But, as this week’s refreshed tally suggests, the general public has pressed the “snooze button” on the singer’s latest R&B blazer ‘No Sleeep’ as it has taken a dive right out of the Hot 100 (an ousting also handed to fellow pop divas’ Madonna‘s ‘B*tch I’m Madonna’ and Britney Spears’ ‘Pretty Girls’ this week).

But, while pop fans sleep on the delectable groove, Urban fans can’t get enough as the track moves up to #8 on Adult R&B Songs chart and retains top 15 placement on the R&B Songs chart with gratitude due in great part to radio.

Now, as #JanFans await a chart boost from its highly anticipated official music video, fans of other artists – namely Rihanna – can already celebrate good tidings courtesy of that very medium.  For, as her ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ tune was slowly sliding down charts, the debut of its much-talked about music video last week helped hoist it right back into the top 20.

Find out where it landed on this week’s edition of TGJ Chart Check:



This week’s chart highlights:

  • With 12 weeks at the top, Wiz Khalifa‘s ‘See You Again’ has now tied the record for longest run at #1 on the Hot 100 by a rap song.  Only Black Eyed Peas‘Boom Boom Pow’ and Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ have notched an equal tenure.
  • Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson‘s ‘Uptown Funk’ was finally ousted out of the Hot 100’s top 10 this week, leaving it just one week shy of tying the record for longest run in the top 10 by any song (as reported here).
    • It does, however, retain the record for most weeks in the top 10 by any Hot 100 #1

    No sleep? The charts are sure sleeping on you Girl!!!

    • Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* July 9, 2015

      fück you!! I was trying to be first comment before this jawn get 100 comments.

      • danyboo July 9, 2015

        I think independent women destiny’s did 12 #1 too

    • Regina George July 9, 2015

      Bih it took them making a damn movie for people to even realize Rih was still alive… At least MOTHA cracked the top 100 with no promo and is still riding waves in on the R&B charts. Don’t come for her when it took 3 singles and a some white girl tits to put Rihanna in the top 20… I like Rihanna… Still waiting on her “hit” this era tho… :sips:

  2. Lana Del Fan *I Can Hear The Sirens* July 9, 2015

    Legendary or not, she’s dtill an artist. And we, the consumers, get bored quick. However, I did buy a copy three days ago.

    • ESSENCE_OF_SEAN July 9, 2015

      The song is doing what it’s supposed to do. It’s a mature R&B song that has not been promoted yet. But if you think JANET JACKSON is a D-List artist than your stupid and I don’t care what you or anybody else say to try to prove your point that she isn’t an A-list artist.

      But like you said y’all like s*** for a hot min than move on. Which is very very sad.

  3. Slayoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) July 9, 2015

    I have a feeling that Janet is coming with something very epic, sooner than we all think (probably in the next one to two weeks), that’ll boost her right back into the Hot 100…Bookmark ME.

    • Regina George July 9, 2015

      You better kno it.. MOTHA knows how to keep the suspense goin… Think she sleeep when she ain’t?! Humph… :sips:

  4. CherylSoldierr July 9, 2015

    An American oxygen T tbh

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 9, 2015

      Honey please. A.O. was pop and Flopped and i love Rhi. N.S. is ‘R&B’ and it’s climbing the ‘R&B’ charts as it should. That fact that it even charted on a pop chart comfirms her epicness biitch. I never thought it would cgart ANYWHERE tbh bcause of todays music listeners but this song is actually performing quite well it the market it’s mwant for. *rolls eyes*

  5. Um… July 9, 2015

    I would guess so with no promotion or video. All she did was release a really cool lyric video to go along with it. I didn’t even expect it to chart, tbh. It’s still doing well on the adult r&b and r&b/hip hop charts with just radio play.

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 9, 2015

      Thank u hun.

  6. BeyIsKing July 9, 2015

    Legendary? Yes she is…but if continue down the same grain she is headed for a sure fire flop

    • huh? July 9, 2015

      Why are y’all so stupid? Your faves released videos and still can’t get that high, smh.

    • ESSENCE_OF_SEAN July 9, 2015

      well if that’s the case 90% of the artists of today has FIRE FLOPS lol chile bye

      She has nothing to prove. She is a legend, icon, worth over hundred million dollars!Plus she is married to a billionaire! She came back because she love her fans and what she was born to do.

      • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 9, 2015


  7. ESSENCE_OF_SEAN July 9, 2015

    EXACTLY! She didn’t even promote it. It’s a great song. She’s clearly not pressed to get a big hit or anything like that.

    But it’s slaying R&B Charts as it should.

    • Um… July 9, 2015

      I ADORE the song. It’s awesome! The perfect groove coming from the perfect person to give that groove!!

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 9, 2015

      Honey this song is EVERYTHANG and 3 planets! Haters GON hate!!!

  8. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig July 9, 2015

    JJ is a sweetheart ???? I hear she sent tinashe a thank you card with flowers for the tribute.

  9. pat July 9, 2015

    established legends don’t sell singles these days….they sell albums….not to mention janet has been paying it dust…. she’ll take the tour coinz for 1000, Alex!!

  10. LvckeyB July 9, 2015

    My n**** Fetty Wap number 5 ayyye!!!

    • Caramel creamy July 9, 2015

      That’s what i’m sayin

  11. NikkiBaby July 9, 2015

    It’s time for Janet to get more relatable. What she did at the BET awards set her back big time. She should have performed. She’s out here trying to sell million dollar diamonds when she needs to focus on her fans. She needs a new single with an epic video ASAP..

    • @NikkiBaby July 9, 2015

      You sound so young. Janet has PLENTY of very rich friends here and in the Middle East. LOL! Trust, she’ll be alright!

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 9, 2015

      U need to kiss my ass

  12. Keri Qween July 9, 2015

    Charted higher than Only Human without the aid of a video and no promo

    I think Janet is coming with a hot dance number ;ready for the choreography

    • CherylSoldierr July 9, 2015

      Comparing a third single to a debut after 7 years away. Keri logic. This is why your fave can’t get 20k YouTube views lmao

  13. Selenator *Good For You* July 9, 2015

    No mention on how Demi debuted at #36 with her generic ass built-for-radio Domino/I Kissed A Girl single? Even with all that payola she still flopped. Lol, she said she was going to be the Rihanna of pop when really she degraded from a poor man’s Kelly Clarkson to a poor man’s Jessie J. Anyways, Selena needs to reappear and do some promo before Good For You falls out the top 20. I love how it sold more in its second week than Flop for the Summer did in it’s first week. As for JJ, I’m not sure what people were expecting. It’s a calm, mature R&B single. Did you really think it would smash? JJ’s legacy will remain unbothered

    • CherylSoldierr July 9, 2015

      What kind of TRASH did Selena release tho? Who’s checking for that attempt to be hip and urban?

      • Faf July 9, 2015

        It sounds like a Lana throwaway


      • Selenator *Good For You* July 9, 2015

        Considering it has the biggest first week sale for female artist so far this year, plus the great response from radio, plus the critical acclaim, I’d say everyone is checking for it. Even the haters boo

    • Arianator Barb July 9, 2015

      A Snorelena Hoemez fan talking about generic… LOL

      • Selenator *Good For You* July 9, 2015

        I’d drag Featuriana but the entire country is doing a good job of it 🙂 🙂 🙂

  14. You is hooker July 9, 2015

    oop her fans must have went to sleep listening to that song and forgot to buy it this chart week.

      But pretty hurts didn’t chart at all, what’s so funny?

      • Rosie July 9, 2015

        Pretty Hurts was cancelled as a single while Keri is struggling to get 50K views on YouTube. Keep trying.

      • Keri Qween July 9, 2015

        Cancelled because it flopped. And yt views didn’t help pretty hurts chart did it? Bye fat d***

      • Rosie July 9, 2015

        It was cancelled before it’s “release date” but once again keep trying while Miscarried can only get 41K views in 2 months.

    • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 9, 2015

  16. Stephon Maurice Jackson July 9, 2015

    Janet needs to start promoting. It did chart pretty high without no video or performance.

  17. Selenator *Good For You* July 9, 2015

    Fun fact: Selena has two of the top 5 biggest first week single sales of the year so far for female artists
    1. Good For You: 179,000
    2. BBHMM: 108,000
    3. I Want You to Know: 100,000

    Told y’all the song sucks. Doesn’t matter who singing (or whispering) on the track, that’s not what’s poppin in these streets and even then, people barely buy or support sh*t. I see Janet doing 100-200k first week (maybe). And maybe hitting platinum (by shipment) after a year. It’s all about the tour for these old brods…

      How do u wanna eat my ass?? With a spoon?

  23. Rosie July 9, 2015

    dhfndn @ the way the quality takes a literal NOSEDIVE on the Hot 100 after #8 (except Lean On).
    Other than that it’s no big deal? It’s not like the song was tailor-made for any mainstream radio success outside of Urban AC.

    • Slayoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) July 9, 2015

  24. Slay_Hive July 9, 2015

    ???????????? I knew this would happen. She released the wrong single and she hasn’t even bothered to promote it. In this day and age, you have to come out if the gate HARD, with videos, televised performances can appearances to keep your name out there. I only know ONE entertainer that doesn’t have to do majority of that *coughs* Bey *coughs* Better luck with next single Janet!!

    Rihanna’s BBHMM will be back out of the top twenty next week. The video has stalled at 18M views and the hype from the BET awards has died all the way down.???? Not to mention the flop song is just wack, contrived and awful. The video still hasn’t help it out peak 7/11. I can’t ????????

    • Slayoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Formerly RihNavy) July 9, 2015

    Well if the music industry wasn’t too busy sucking on Beyonce and Taylor’s d*cks, then they would’ve remembered that there are other artists who deserve the same publicity, especially Janet!

  29. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig July 9, 2015

    Janet will be fine once she kicks up the pace on the promotion . All she needs is a good visual and hopefully she will drop another single before the album… Hopefully something upbeat that I can pop, lock and drop to!

    this is why people like britney,mariah, xtina and madonna , who has been in the game for so long and broke records after records, has to resort to making garbage music, instead of real music

    because people only cares about hits…doesnt matter if the song is garbage, as long as its a hit than its ok..

    janet doesn’t make money off her singles..she makes money off her tours….her tours always makes money (real money)..even if her albums do not sell

    janet may not be my cup of tea..but at this point of her career, which is legendary..what the f*** else she has to prove?

    no where in hell she needs to lower her standards to sing about swallowing n** juice just to get a hit..

Chile please, Ciara is no more then a Janet overstudy, Beyonce’s distant shadow of invisibility, and Rihanna’s opening act which started Ciara’s irrelevancy, I mean she came out when Beyonce was a solo act but got kicked to the curb by Rihanna Don’t start just keep it cute or put it on mute Ciara has 10 years in the game and still not in the elite success of Beyonce and Rihanna and both of them combined have better songs then she do just saying.

    I hadn´t checked who had written the post but I just knew it couldn´t be Sam once I started reading it 🙂
    In Sam´s world that song is still a hit and Mariah and Madonna are total flops lol

    One more thing: what a sad era in music when you have another basic song making it to so many weeks at #1 once again. Like seriously, in the last 5 years only awful or average songs have done that (except for Uptown Funk, but that one is not a masterpiece or anything either, I love it, but 13 weeks or whatever it stayed there were too much).

  51. cocobutta July 9, 2015

    mama jigsaw has managed, after each successive “upwards-

      DEAD. Who?

  66. Molly July 9, 2015

    Janet is not built for this generation. Sorry not sorry whatever she puts out won’t make top 40 on the hot 100. She has ran her course. It is what it is.. you stans live in denial.

  67. Career Ender July 9, 2015

    But no more! This latest failure was on such a
    brightly-lit stage, that it’s now managed to cast
    a revealing light upon her entire, now decade-long
    colossal flopping. She has always been a flop who got lucky few times

  68. Molly July 9, 2015

    The only legend I love, respect, and actually use is Mariah…. Madonna Janet and the rest of these fossils are tired.

    • Career Ender July 9, 2015

      same here I use Mariah only

    LOL the song was boring, where are the people who were yodelling to the mountains about Miss Jackson If Ya Nastys return at now?

    Don’t you Stan for Ciara? please let’s not today.

  72. Lea July 9, 2015

    What a waste of an article…Did we really expect this to impact the 100 which has been dominated Pop, Hip-Hop for every since i can remember??? Janet will be fine, trust me! ***Tour***

  73. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! July 9, 2015

    Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Hits 5 Million in U.S. Sales, Making It the Fastest-Selling Album In Over 10 Years

    On the latest Billboard 200 albums chart (dated July 18), 1989 spends its 36th consecutive week in the top 10 (rising 4-3). The last album to rack up its first 36 chart weeks in the top 10 was Adele’s 21, which didn’t vacate the region until its 79th chart week (dated Sept. 8, 2012).

  74. Sandra July 9, 2015

    Janet could never do Taylor Swift numbers. Damn! 5 million sales for Taylors album! Janet will be lucky if she manages to sell 100k .

    • @Sandra July 9, 2015

      And that’s where the stupidity is! NO ONE can do that, but Adele.

    • Shady81 July 9, 2015

      She already did that if in fact more then that when they were actually selling album’s instead of singles SMH These Kids Today.

      • Avi July 10, 2015

        Janet never did ’21’ numbers. Not even when her albums were actually selling.

  75. WTF?! July 9, 2015

    Are y’all stuck on stupid again? A 49 y/o releases a quiet storm groove in 2015 with nothing else to back it up and she’s considered a flop already? WTF?! We probably won’t even know the single’s full potential without a video, promotion, performances, etc. It did reach #67 with little to no help. No big name celebs even tweeted about it. Mariah actually did. That’s because she and Janet were close at one point. Janet only has 3 million followers herself. She definitely stayed true to herself and released something that I love and I’ve liked very little from Janet in the past 10 years! And NO Ciara Stan should be coming for Janet. I could down the list on why Janet is better in every possible way, but for now we’ll just say that at 29, Janet wasn’t struggling for relevancy and was still shattering records.

  76. OMG Logic!!! July 9, 2015

    Why the hell is that damn song still #1? I haven’t even heard on the radio in weeks. Where are all the singles this year? There has been literally zero competition. It’s almost as if there’s a concerted effort to take down Mariah’s #1 slot on Billboard.

  77. Liam July 9, 2015

    Well she did it release to cater to the adult urban charts which is where her main support is anyways…so i think it’s doing well for a track that has no major label backing…so kudos to her.

  78. It’s Barbie B**** July 9, 2015

    Her and Ciara are alike in more ways then one….

  79. StrawberryMuffin24 July 9, 2015

    I love Janet she’s Legendary she has nothing to really prove anymore. No sleep is a good album track but not first single material, she needs to release an uptempo song that’s what people want from a janet first single!

    The weeknd is killing it even though he sucks live i still love his music!

    Too bad for Rihanna she did that big budget video that still really did nothing for the song her era is a mess!

  80. Casual-T July 9, 2015

    No Sleep is whack and boring. A lack of promo is not the problem. On the real, the song isn’t really all that catchy or interesting, so it isn’t sparking any interest beyond Janet’s core fan base. Releasing this song, even as a promo track, was a bad idea. It isn’t generating the right kind of buzz, and in fact, this might hurt album sales, b/c the public might think the album overall is as dull as this single.

  81. ShakaZulu July 9, 2015

    Miss Janet Girl we sleep! This is a new era of music can you keep up or naw? Cause no sleep is just OK and clearly people ain’t feeling it!

  82. DMWN July 9, 2015

    People kill me pretending this song had no promo when the day it was released, it was trending all over and reported in a variety of news sites, then there was that phony BET tribute that was constructed to boost her profile even more for this “comeback”. Music videos and performances aren’t the only form of promo. And there are plenty of songs that climb without extensive media exposure. Quit with the excuses and reconcile that the song flopped. Her long absence was the only reason people were mildly curious enough for it to get as high as it did, but apparently few people liked it enough to keep the momentum going. She dropped more than 30 places in just one week. Don’t try to downplay that. I swear Janet stans are delusional AF. She could’ve put out some cheese ball Max Martin pop song and the result probably would’ve been similar. Her pop star days are done.

    • @DMWM July 9, 2015

      See, social media? Not everyone is into social media. How can you not understand that? Unless she goes out and promotes and/or releases a video performs or something, then it’s not really promo! As someone else said, you guys are stuck on stupid on here. just trash…

  83. tony smith July 9, 2015

    I have no idea why I am posting in this crazy thread. But here goes. I was surprised the song dropped, but last week, it charted largely due to sales. The song was still warming up at radio. It has only been out two weeks, and it is still pulling spins. Give it time people. And stop tripping. It is a little embarrassing due to the promo they gave the debut, but remember: the fans bought en masse because she was finally back. The rest of the public is still getting exposed to it.

    If I am wrong, I will still enjoy what she brings. All of you young queens need to get lives.

    • I… July 9, 2015

      They who? She didn’t give it too much promo. And I heard it at the BET awards, but still people didn’t know that it was her new song because it was never really announced. She’s getting radio play, but I’m confused as to why she isn’t doing ANYTHING to promote it, announce it, perform it. Something.

  84. HYISI July 9, 2015

    Who’s surprised though?,is the bigger question!
    Janet Jackson is L-E-G-E-N-D! She can flop every album she puts out for the next decade and will still be iconic!Janet,Mariah,Whitney,Celine, and Madonna could all flop for the rest of their careers and still only have maybe 4 girls out of this generation that “may” see their total sales at the end of their careers and I’ll give you a hint, it’s not one chick that debuted post 2007!
    I’m willing to bet Janet does discipline numbers or lower this era and that’s still okay! Janet was out here collecting wigs when it was expected of Pop artist, not a rarity(Adele,Taylor)!!!
    If you’re a fan of Bey,Ciara,Rihanna or any black Pop artist who were inspired and grew up on Janet, you should show a little more respect!!!Janet was one of the last pro-type artist to come out of the 80’s! The blueprint that the next generation followed and then some(Britney,Aaliyah,Destiny’s Child,Mya,Ciara,and all of the forgotten R&B/Pop female artist that came and went through the 2000-2002 era of music!!!

  85. Shaun hova July 9, 2015

    “N0 sleep” is a R&B tune so of course it isn’t going to chart well on the pop charts. There was no advertisement for the single and it already peaked #67 on the billboard hot 100. The song is topping all the R&B charts though. Janet still wins! She’s a legend anyway and has nothing else to prove.

  86. What now July 9, 2015


    • Stupid stans July 9, 2015

      Uh, no one was expecting this song to be a smash. As a matter of fact, no one expected it to even chart, yes, even these hardcore crazy stans on here. It’s clear that they were impressed with a song with quality because Janet’s last 2 or 3 albums, Janet lost inspiration and it was obvious. I will say that “Make Me” which was a bonus track on her number ones album was cute and “Nothing” from the Why did I get married too soundtrack was really good. No Sleeep is a beautiful, chill song. That’s it, it’s mature, and it’s not for kids. It has no video, no promo, no performances!! It’s only going on radio play for now. Sh… She’s lucky to even get that at her age. I wonder if she will promote it though. It actually has potential. Something else she could do is find another marketing strategy.

  87. Mark111 July 9, 2015

    Still charted higher than Any of Mariah and Madonna’s songs in the past year and a half. Plus B1tch I’m MaDONEna fell off too, but I guess that’s not news…

  88. ???? July 10, 2015

    What do you guys smoke on here? HOW do you post some of the things that you do? The immaturity levels are through the roof!! First of all, it’s NOT surprising that this single dropped because JJ is not doing a thing to sell it. Someone previously said that the single got hype? Um, I don’t remember because it was barely even mentioned on TV. All they said that she was back, that’s all I heard. Not everyone is wasting their lives away on social media like some of you are which is where I heard it the most. Especially Janet fans who are GROWN. If they’re lucky, they can catch the song on urban radio, but a white audience needs to hear it and they rely haven’t. There are legends out there who really have nothing to prove. I think this is why Janet just released something and left it alone. As far as Madonna and Mariah, I would expect them to do higher than #67 because they have everything behind them, but they don’t have a thing to prove either. Mariah doesn’t seem to desperate to sell, it’s Madonna whose thirst is real. Now Janet, this song still has potential. It has no video and I don’t think she performed it live on TV anywhere. A white audience is what she needs. The Ellen Show is perfect and some Good Morning America, SNL, something, she’s doing nothing like that.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 10, 2015

      Overall I agree. But how do Mariah or Madonna have everything behind them but Janet doesn´t? Mariah has released several singles in the last few years to which she has not taken care of either, just like Janet with this one.
      The 3 are pretty much on the same page now. I suppose Janet will promote with upcoming singles and the album release. If she ends selling less than the other two, it will be because she moves less people. As simple as that. She has been performing “worse” than them for 15 years now so I don´t see how it would be surprising or why they have more support than Janet (being that a reason to give Janet a pass but not the other two).
      Their careers are amazing so it really doesn´t matter though.

      • @JOHNVIDAL July 10, 2015

        You keep saying that she’s been underperforming them, but Janet was actually SEVERELY blacklisted. Those two NEVER were. People keep saying that it’s a copout, but it isn’t. How can you sell albums and get hits when you’re banned from radio and TV indefinitely? Not only that, the Internet wasn’t really being used to sell music in 2004, 2006, and 2008. And some stations that could play her just didn’t. She was boycotted. Even MTV/VH1 didn’t play her videos for years! She was only available to a small Urban crowd on BET which never really equates to Hot 100 smashes.

    • L21480 July 10, 2015

      The audacity of you to posture about immaturity levels while repeatedly hyping up it supposedly needing a “white” audience in order to thrive. I guess a song isn’t validated and can’t have hit potential unless every Tom, Scott and Becky have heard and are digging it. Take that white supremacy nonsense elsewhere.

  89. L21480 July 10, 2015

    Janet fans are like a shiesty lawyer when it comes to spin and pretend. They hype up mediocre “accomplishments” like they mean something and try to downplay utter failings that actually do. She didn’t drop this song out of the blue. To say that she’s had no promo is lie. News of her comeback to music has been trending all year. For this song to come out, make modest noise and then quickly freefall says something. It doesn’t matter if it’s a quiet storm/R&B/grown folks song. It was still what she choose to come back with. This wasn’t some free download available exclusively on her website so to say that it is “for the fans” is a copout. It was put on every music platform, from radio to YouTube to iTunes. It was as much for EVERYBODY as a friggin One Direction release. It also doesn’t matter that there is no video or have been no live performances, hell the song has only been out like two weeks. If it couldn’t tread water for at least that long without some kind of major push, then a video and live performance ain’t gonna help much. As far as it being a hit on the Adult R&B songs chart goes…eh…considering how lite the competition tends to be at that format, the song should at least be #1 there. Hell, even Anita Baker was able to to do that a few years ago after being gone for longer than Janet. The ultimate desperation tactic is her stans acting like it means something that it flopped a little less than Mariah and Madonna’s current singles. As if that’s supposed to mean something. Seriously Janet fans, just stop. You’re embarrassing yourselves with these excuses. If you like the song, then continue to, but you’re only fooling yourselves with this poor attempt at damage control.

    • jade July 10, 2015

      You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Janet’s successes aren’t like her past successes but you should remember that this legend has been in the game for almost as many years as she has been alive. You can’t dictate failures when it comes to Janet, she can only be compared to herself and that is that she is one of the top selling artist of all time. Yes she is top 10 on R & B billboard Charts and yes she dropped out of the hot 100 and that’s fine. how well are you doing in your career now or how well will you be doing after 40 years, i can say Janet is doing fine with over 40 year career success in music, best selling author, movie screens and marriage. oh and very successful being the idol for the ones that you stan for now like beyonce, chris brown, ciara, tinashe, choreographers, music producers neyo etc. so take a seat at Janet upcoming concert tour that is selling very well!! Enjoy.

  90. ran July 10, 2015

    Yall can try to shade Janet all you want but let be real Quiet Storm music usually never charts on BB100 and haven’t seen many since the 90’s. So looking at the R&B charts she is doing very well.

  91. Eldela July 10, 2015

    Lack of promotion isn’t justification for a song not doing well. Acting like it’s some sort of feat that it made it all the way to #67 based on nothing is like boasting that you were able to get a D on a test without bothering to study. If Janet and her team can’t be bothered to do all that it takes to promote and make the song as big a hit as it could be, it low charting isn’t excused nor does it make it any less of a flop.

    • @Eldela July 10, 2015

      You sound too stupid. why do people promote things? To SELL them. an artitst her age can’t live off of social media buzz.

  92. Adrian July 10, 2015

    I think it would’ve helped if only little if she promoted. Cause she got the buzz for the song and definetly made headlines the past couple of weeks but she needs more of a promotional kick especially she didn’t even perform at The Awards
