Published: Tuesday 7th Jul 2015 by Sam

With Janet Jackson dancing her way up Urban and Rhythmic radio with sensual groove ‘No Sleeep,’ what time is better than the present to unwrap its accompanying lyric video?!

Ms. Jackson did just that moments ago, a smart move given the increasing importance of streaming in the chart placement of tracks in today’s era.

Having debuted at #67 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, can the new clip help elevate the cut even further? We hope so, as the song is the business!

Get all the way into the lyric video below…

      • ran July 7, 2015

        Nobody really thinks a QUIET STORM song is going to top the charts. It was made for people and their lovers. This isn’t a turn up song for you THOTS.

      • Sage July 7, 2015

        Let’s NOT pretend that it would’ve been a smash even if it weren’t a quiet storm type song. lol In 2015 she’s not topping any charts no matter what style it is!

        No one is checking for this BS song. No Sleep = No Spins / No Sales.

        Janet Jackson makes her Billboard chart return as “No Sleeep” debuts at No. 15 on the Adult R&B Songs chart (dated July 11) The sultry song marks her first entry on the list in five years; her last, “Nothing,” peaked at No. 15 in May 2010.

        “No Sleeep” grants Jackson her 27th hit on Adult R&B Songs (which originated in 1993), tying her with Faith Evans for third-most visits among women. Mary J. Blige leads with 51, followed by Mariah Carey (33). The debut also earns Jackson her highest entrance ever on the chart.

        The new single concurrently bows on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay at No. 27 with 6.7 million in first-week audience, according to Nielsen Music, marking her 36th hit on the chart. It’s her highest debut in more than 20 years: “Scream,” with brother Michael, launched at No. 6 on June 3, 1995. Janet Jackson’s “That’s the Way Love Goes” remains the record-holder as the only song to debut at No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (May 1, 1993).

        An early supporter of “No Sleeep,” adult R&B WDAS Philadelphia, played the track 22 times during the tracking week ending June 28. Derrick “DC” Corbett, the station’s director of urban programming, tells Billboard that the song “just felt like us. It’s a perfect summertime groove, and it’s rare when you hear a song and everyone’s opinion of the record within the building is ultra-positive. That, coupled with the fact that she’s an icon that we all grew up with, made it a no-brainer for us.

        “We’re happy to be a small contributor to her success with [‘Sleeep’], and it’s exciting to have her back in the mix.”

        The single arrived on June 22, a week after Jackson announced her Unbreakable World Tour, which is slated to kick off in Vancouver, B.C. on Aug. 31, with the first leg of North American dates planned through Nov. 13.

        “No Sleeep,” produced by longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, previews Jackson’s upcoming studio album, due in the fall, her first since 2008’s Discipline.

    Wonderful, now I’m patiently waiting for the visual and from the looks of the BET awards; I envision it to be similar to ‘That’s the way love goes’ (Live)

    Very disappointing chart performance after all the hype and a 7 year hiatus. I smell flop for Janet this era

    • truth(nicki thew reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 7, 2015

      B**** that was for the fans and its doing what it should…jeepn slutss like u checkn for her kii.

      • Truth July 7, 2015

        Pretending that charts don’t matter and that a song is “for the fans” is a cop out. If that were true, then she would have given it away for free to fan club members or something. This was presented to the general public who gave it a few curiosity listens but ultimately didn’t bite.

      • truth(nicki thew reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 7, 2015

        S**** i aint pretendn sh!t. Its doing what it suppose to do ho. Now r u gon pretend u didnt eat my pusssy lastnite biitch?? Huh?? And here is the No Sleep reciept ho

  9. Royalkev July 7, 2015

    Awww, this is really nice! 🙂 I love seeing the lyrics that were added by Janet (which ended up making the final cut of the song), it was cool to see the old alternatives. This was so cute & personal!

  10. jjsrb July 7, 2015

    I love JANET to death, but it’s too late for lyrics video.

    • The wind July 7, 2015

      So you agree this song fits in a slow and retarded category? Good analysis

      • ESSENCE_OF_SEAN July 7, 2015

        Ummm CLEARLY IT’S NOT A RETARTED SONG DUMMY! THERE’S NTH WRONG WITH JANET BEING HERSELF AND NOT FOLLOWING THE TRENDS BY SOUNDING UNEDUCATED AND STUPID ON A SONG LIKE MOST ARTISTS OF TODAY! WHO Y’ALL JUST ADORE AND TURN UP TOO.

        THIS SONG IS CLEARLY FOR THE GROWN AND S***! IF YOU THINK JANET DOESN’T HAVE BANGERS ON THIS UPCOMING ALBUM THEN YOU’RE STUPID! SO MOVE THE F*** ON BEFORE YOU GET SLICED

  22. Sandra July 7, 2015

    No Sleep = Flop. The song peaked at #67 in US and didn’t chart in any other country. Very disappointing after all the hype 🙁 If the album flops then Janet better retire.

WHITNEY OUTSOLD HER IN 90. MOO OUTSOLD HER IN 93. CÉLINE & CHER OUTSOLD HER IN 97. THE REAL QUEEN OF POP OUTSOLD HER IN 00/01 AND AGAIN OUTSOLD HER IN 04. MOO OUTSOLD HER IN 05/06. WHITNEY, MOO, CÉLINE, AND MADONNA THEN TURNED AROUND AND OUTSOLD HER IN 08/09. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEIR ALBUMS ARE PLAYI PLATINUM DURING THIS ERA, BUT JANET FANS LIKE TO BRAG ON A BARELY GOLD PLAQUE AND THEN CALL OTHER DIVAS FLOPS. KIII. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BEING BLACK LISTED. IF MOO CAN COME BACK AFTER GLITTER DROPPED ON 9/11. MADONNA CAN COME BACK AFTER DESERT STORM AND BEING TOLD SHE WAS OVER. WHITNEY SOUNDED TERRIBLE LIVE IN 09 AND STILL WENT PLATINUM. JANET HAS NO EXCUSES. SHE IS OVER. ACCEPT IT AND MOVE ON.

        When MOOMOO was riding a married man d*** and releasing 99 singles a year and albums in the 90’s just to cath up. Janet only released two albums that decade, only two successful albums in the 80s. Yet she was still the 2nd most successful artist in the 90s, MooMoo would have a breakdown at year 10 and have to ride JD’s peen for a comeback. Don’t forget in 2001 while Janet had the 2nd biggest opening album that year with over 600K and Moos was flopping with Glitter.

      • DMWN July 7, 2015

        Dumbass, Janet released 4 albums in the 80s and 3 in the 90s. And the only reason she didn’t put out more was because she was too afraid to compete with Michael during his stints.

  30. i hate beyonce July 7, 2015

        Janet Jackson makes her Billboard chart return as “No Sleeep” debuts at No. 15 on the Adult R&B Songs chart (dated July 11) The sultry song marks her first entry on the list in five years; her last, “Nothing,” peaked at No. 15 in May 2010.

        “No Sleeep” grants Jackson her 27th hit on Adult R&B Songs (which originated in 1993), tying her with Faith Evans for third-most visits among women. Mary J. Blige leads with 51, followed by Mariah Carey (33). The debut also earns Jackson her highest entrance ever on the chart.

        The new single concurrently bows on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay at No. 27 with 6.7 million in first-week audience, according to Nielsen Music, marking her 36th hit on the chart. It’s her highest debut in more than 20 years: “Scream,” with brother Michael, launched at No. 6 on June 3, 1995. Janet Jackson’s “That’s the Way Love Goes” remains the record-holder as the only song to debut at No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (May 1, 1993).

        An early supporter of “No Sleeep,” adult R&B WDAS Philadelphia, played the track 22 times during the tracking week ending June 28. Derrick “DC” Corbett, the station’s director of urban programming, tells Billboard that the song “just felt like us. It’s a perfect summertime groove, and it’s rare when you hear a song and everyone’s opinion of the record within the building is ultra-positive. That, coupled with the fact that she’s an icon that we all grew up with, made it a no-brainer for us.

        “We’re happy to be a small contributor to her success with [‘Sleeep’], and it’s exciting to have her back in the mix.”

        The single arrived on June 22, a week after Jackson announced her Unbreakable World Tour, which is slated to kick off in Vancouver, B.C. on Aug. 31, with the first leg of North American dates planned through Nov. 13.

        “No Sleeep,” produced by longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, previews Jackson’s upcoming studio album, due in the fall, her first since 2008’s Discipline.

      • MovieAmi July 7, 2015

        Both Madonna and Mariah have had top 20/top 10 singles more recently than Janet – who hasn’t had a real hit in almost 15 years. Hell, a 7 year absence wasn’t even enough to propel this song into the top 40. I guess that means no one really missed her. No you are not in here trying to gas up a #67 peak. How pathetic of you. Who cares if it charted higher than their flops. Doesn’t make it any less of a flop itself. And I bet Janet’s next album won’t sell as much as Madonna or Mariah’s most recent flops.

    Why is Madonna 157 years old and doesn’t own her masters?
    .
    And whatever happen to Crave Records? Google it or ask the LAMES.

    • MovieAmi July 7, 2015

      Madonna’s net worth more than 6x Janet. So if she WANTED her masters, she could get them…and wouldn’t need to marry a guy who was richer than her to acquire them. Perhaps the reason Janet was able to get her masters was because they were cheap to obtain. Hell, half her discography flopped. Madonna’s catalog, which has sold like 200-300 million more than Janet’s, would naturally be more expensive to acquire. And quit with the agism. It makes you look stupid, especially considering Janet is 50 and less than a decade years younger than Madonna. Best believe she’s in hot flashes now.

      • Hush July 7, 2015

        True. This is like when Rihhead slugs try to brag about her owning her dipshit masters while Beyoncé doesn’t. Who cares? Beyoncé has way more money than Rihherpés so if she felt the urge to own her own masters, she could! And if she couldn’t it’s only because her label wouldn’t be as quick to part with it as easily or as cheaply as Rihslapped’s company did hers! Same with Madonna and Janet here. Madonna’s like a billionaire and the richest woman in music. If she couldn’t buy her own masters then she sure could’ve bought Janet’s if she wanted. lol

    • Stavdash July 7, 2015

      Shut up with the ageism. I’m not a fan of Madonna’s either, but using someone’s age to degrade them is callow, ignorant and stupid. She’s the exact same age as Prince and MJ, just a few years older than Whitney and is only 7-8 years older than Janet – which isn’t a huge gap. Of all the things that woman could be legitimately criticized about, age is the least of them. If that’s your attitude, you better plan on dying young.

    And, Janet is a freaking Legend. It doesn’t matter if she’s the less most successful star of her peers. She still sold over 100,000,000+ Records & scored many, many HITS. So, miss me with the BS.

  52. Royalkev July 7, 2015

    It’s way too much Janet bashing going on here BEFORE the second charting week of ‘No Sleeep’ officially even gets here. It’s debut came in at #67 on the charts, that’s quite rare to see for a woman damn near FIFTY … returning after a FIVE year break … that was blacklisted for TEN years. It’s a SOLO, R&B release that’s getting off to a better start than some pop-friendly singles! The song is a grower and it’s already making an impression on R&B airplay/charts. To ridicule Janet at this point (before live performances and a video) reeks of desperate and exposes so much insecurity.

    Now all these people want to downplay Janet’s iconic status! Don’t keep forgetting that Janet’s released fewer albums than her peers! Her name pops up in the top 10 in just chart/feat imaginable. That remarkable for someone with such minimal work.

    – Janet was a touring force (has the record for the Biggest Debut Tour Ever)
    – Janet was the #2 artist of the 90’s (with 4.5 releases, which included a remix and G.H. album)
    – Janet holds the record for having the most Billboard awards (33)
    – Janet has SIX #1 albums (ONLY 8 people have more, Madonna/Barbra Streisand being the ONLY women in the group, both released more than twice as much music as Janet).
    * Janet’s also 1 of only 3 women to do it 5 times back to back since 2001 (the other 2: Bey & Madonna, who just managed to do this in 2012)
    – Janet has 27 top tens (only 5 people have more, again, Madonna being the only woman in that group).

    These records are from again, FIVE ALBUMS/ERAS and before the SUPERBOWL incident! Janet has nothing to prove, she’s a legitimate legend! She’s sold 160 Million records – again, from mainly FIVE eras! …

    & Don’t get it twisted, I’m not mad! I’m calm as ever, preparing for my vacation. People are just doing too much without knowing their facts and music history.

      * Her name pops up in the top 10 in just about every chart …

    • @Keith July 7, 2015

      People just aren’t bright on here. I personally LOVE the song because it gives a VERY soulful Janet which is something I haven’t seen in a long time from her. They’re just kids on this site, lol. They’re so fast to call someone a flop, but this “flop” isn’t even doing anything to promote the single. No video, no performances, NOTHING!

      • RoyalKev July 7, 2015

        It’s been a lot of this going on in Janet posts lately! It’s always several haters in here commenting on EVERY Janet story! Those pressed souls are so mad (for many obvious reasons).

    Hey Sam! How about writing a post about how to save Janet Jackson´s comeback era? 🙂
    Oh yeah, you won´t do one of those. That´s only for the monthly Mariah Carey bashing party. Seriously, learn to be less biased.

  56. XoMoDe July 7, 2015

    Why is it that whenever anyone says anything against Janet, her damn stans start rattling off a list of her career achievements? Are you THAT shell-shocked? That insecure? Do you have THAT big an inferiority complex where she’s concerned that you have to run off a bunch of tired resume factoids to prove some kind of point that’s actually meant to soothe your own thin-skin should someone doubt her? Seriously, I know every pop star has overzealous fans who’ll do lame stuff like that, but Janet’s are the worse when it comes to it. You say she has nothing to prove, but you seem to. If someone isn’t a fan of hers and says so, bringing up how many #1 albums she has, how many decades she’s charted in or how she has the biggest debut tour or whatever isn’t going to convert or quiet them.

    ALL U HATIN BIITCHES EAT THIS CHART RECIEPT FOR NO SLEEP FOR DINNER…AND MY WET PUSSSY FOR DESERT!!! Bon apetite hoez!!! ????

    Janet Jackson makes her Billboard chart return as “No Sleeep” debuts at No. 15 on the Adult R&B Songs chart (dated July 11) The sultry song marks her first entry on the list in five years; her last, “Nothing,” peaked at No. 15 in May 2010.

    “No Sleeep” grants Jackson her 27th hit on Adult R&B Songs (which originated in 1993), tying her with Faith Evans for third-most visits among women. Mary J. Blige leads with 51, followed by Mariah Carey (33). The debut also earns Jackson her highest entrance ever on the chart.

    The new single concurrently bows on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay at No. 27 with 6.7 million in first-week audience, according to Nielsen Music, marking her 36th hit on the chart. It’s her highest debut in more than 20 years: “Scream,” with brother Michael, launched at No. 6 on June 3, 1995.

    I can’t with people doing their best to label Janet’s career a flop, but when you remind them about her accomplishments, they’re upset at your receipts! If people ignorantly dismiss Janet’s credits, then you better believe that a mention of her records will come up! It’s nothing random about that! These people want to ignore the first half of this post and then suck their teeth at those responding to it! FOH!

    Janet is in the top 10 R&B charts … the song is R&B NOT POP…haterss… lmaoo

  61. Um… July 8, 2015

    This song is actually doing better than I expected. I thought that Janet was going to give her 1st single major promotion, performances, video, the whole 9, and still not even make it to the charts. She did very little to nothing and it’s actually doing ok considering her age and little to no marketing. I LOVE the song. It’s s*** and seductive.

  62. Adrian July 8, 2015

    The negativity and disrespect on this blog is truly disgusting to me. We all have our opinions but the way it’s projected on this forum is truly sad and heartbreaking especially when’s its about Janet. Maybe Janet should’ve came harder with a better song but many of you don’t have to throw stones at her. The backlash she’s getting over ‘no sleep’ on social media I would even echoes some of the backlash she got after the super bowl back in 2004. I don’t think it’s realistic either to only release songs just for fans but obviously that’s gonna be somewhat common sense but in my opinion the song is very mature and it really draws more into Janet’s musical roots as an artist. Her signature sound is dance but dance music has evolved so much in the past 7 years that what Janet would bring may not really be helpful cause flashback to 2008 nobody bought her last record despite the number one on the hot 100. But I think the only way for this song to still have a standing is she needs to do more performances, yes her old songs but that’s only bringing nostalgia for everyone to listen to that and not her new songs. She just needs to go out there and promote the song harder cause all this chart news is excellent now but she needs to come harder on the promotional front I will say that.
