Call It A Comeback! Janet Jackson Rocks Vancouver With ‘Unbreakable’ / Returns To #1 On Billboard

Published: Tuesday 1st Sep 2015 by Sam

Music royals are a rarity in today’s blink and you miss it Pop culture climate.

However, last night Janet Jackson showed and proved that her crown not only remains in intact, but also that it hasn’t lost any of its shine.

The Queen of Pop took to the stage in Vancouver, Canada to perform the first show on her hotly anticipated ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ — and Ms. Jackson did not disappoint.

Her past jaunt saw the singer journey through the hits, yet this trek smartly does that while laying the foundation for her eagerly awaited new album, ‘Unbreakable.’

So while the likes of ‘All For You,’ ‘If,’ and ‘Nasty’ were delivered with fine finesse, new numbers such as ‘No Sleeep’ and the LP’s title track were introduced live. The Missy Elliott assisted opener, believed to be titled ‘Burn It Up,’ received an especially roaring reception. [Editor’s note: it’d be almost criminal if this isn’t a single. Preferably the next single. But we digress…]

In other Jackson news, the superstar’s current single ‘No Sleeep’ returned to #1 on the Billboard Adult R&B songs chart — coincidentally on the the same day the tour kicked off.

Check out what the diva had to say about the honor below, where more snaps and footage from the show awaits…

      who even knew you existed

  3. BeyIsKing September 1, 2015

    Did she only wear that one outfit for the whole show? Because of all the pics and videos I’ve seen she’s only wearing that one costume…anyways she’s still got it in fact she never lost it…welcome back Ms. Jackson

    • Girl bye September 1, 2015

      Yassssssss she can actually slay without all those 84885757474748475747 custom and lace front changes.

      • Girl bye September 1, 2015

        costume

    • danyboo September 1, 2015

      I’m sure she did great to but really one damn Alladin costume

    • Julian September 2, 2015

      at big concerts or festivals media-accredited photographers (like the ones working for Getty) are often only allowed to take pictures during the first two or three songs. so there’s your explanation.

      • Afton Covington September 2, 2015

        She did awesome but yes she wore one outfit the whole show. But it was the first night of her show. I think shes still waiting for her costumes to come. And thats normal for artist who are as established as she is

  4. BeyRihLiyah September 1, 2015

    Day and night night and day all i got to say is if…. (Yall know the rest lol) queen janet

  5. Tiffany September 1, 2015

    I was there…when that song with Missy dropped people lost their damn minds! IT KILLED. There is also dance breakdown during the song and JANET and her dancers danced a hole in that damn stage during it.

    She also did Anytime, Anyplace remix with Kendrick Lamar’s Poetic Justice

    She did Nasty remixed with Big Sean’s IDFWU

    She did new choreography for a bunch of her hits and it was hot (she still did the IF Breakdown, the All For You breakdown and the Rhythm Nation original choreo)

    She put on a show (and she was singing LIVE)! I am already talking to my family about buying tickets when she is on the East Coast and making a road trip to see her again!

    • Royalkev September 1, 2015

      ^ Thanks for the info Tiff, you got me so excited! 🙂

  6. R8 is Coming September 1, 2015

    She must be hiding a muffin top and stretch marks under all of those clothes. You know how Janet’s weight changes with the weather. She used to be a big girl

  7. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 September 1, 2015

    Mess. But you don’t see TGJ posting about all the other irrelevant charts; I mean, by TGJ logic, Queenga’s 2542152 dance chart #1’s should mean something and 2ne1’s Ganon chart positions should mean something.

  8. Joseline Hernandez Stan September 1, 2015

    Janet is the true definition of a has been

    • Adrian September 1, 2015

      I’m sorry but anybody talking s*** about anyone being a has been while stanning for a D Lister needs to get popped. Sorry man but you need to come better then that and find someone on a low calabre level to f*** with. Rather Janet is “relevant” to what is now a very ratchet music industry it still doesn’t matter she’s a superstar.

    • Regina George September 1, 2015

      Joseline Hernandez Stan?! The self drag… Janet IS relevant… Where’s Josie’s EP… Let alone album

    • Indie September 3, 2015

      • #JACKIE September 1, 2015

        Apply your username to your life, GIRL BYE! Janet won’t sell much more. Her comeback has been LUKEWARM! I’m tired of y’all old ass Janet stans coming for Ciara. Have several seats in the nursing home next to the spot they’re preparing for Janet. The gloves are OFFFFFF b****!

      • JanStan September 1, 2015

        Yes. 18000 first week kii lol

      Molly you see these geriatric nursing home bingo hall ass b****** coming for Ciara and the squad? Boo I’m ready to drag these geese by their slinky ass necks. Bum ass b******.

      • Molly September 1, 2015

        Kiiii …. baby her stans are bitter they know everything has been lackluster this era they need to accept the truth.

      • #JACKIE September 1, 2015

        I wouldn’t even insult the word lackluster like that. They hyped her ass up just for her to release lullabies and outdated 2001 club jams. ????????????????????

      • JanStan September 1, 2015

        Y’all doin the most tho with your use of the term lackluster during the Jackie era hahahahahaha. 18000 first week sales. Janet did more than that during the first hour of ticket presale bundles. I CANNOT. Saddest part is I love Ciara but somebody gotta check y’all delusion. Just. Stop. Please.

      • #JACKIE September 1, 2015

        Girl stfu because I like Janet too but yall b****** will not sit up here and disrespect my fav. Everything on Jackie slays No Sleep, the LATE Forever and the whack song with Missy’s dated ass. And that’s a fact sis????????

      • A.Nefertari September 2, 2015

        I wish some of these haters was in my face! OMG when I tell you I would punch you right in the mouth I swear and I would hit first and I guarantee you wont get up. It seems like a bunch of loose booty gay men who are dying from h** and get disability every month because they cant work so they stay on and troll sites lets see if your fav will help you pay for your meds or visit you in the hospital when your t-cells are dropping.

  14. JanStan September 1, 2015

    Omg lololol. I just cannot with these haters. Seeing a 49 year old who’s spent pretty much her entire life in the game STILL doin it like THAT got u adjusting your lacefronts with confusion as to wtf your 20 something faves have been doing all this time. KII TO DEATH!!!!!

  15. Chaelin Lee (p.k.a – CL) is coming | 재 이현 김 September 1, 2015

    Her album is named after her spanks.

    • CocoisChanel September 2, 2015

      I love chaerin and I’m a HUGE 2ne1 fan. I love kpop. But the thing is…I’m trying to understand why you throwing so much shade at a legend? CL hasn’t started yet and I hope her the best but fans like you are disrespectful. If you don’t like an artist turn the other cheek. Damn smh

  16. Sleeep September 1, 2015

    Can someone wake me when this tour is over. Its a shame when Madonna can move better than you.

    • Sandra September 1, 2015

      Lol!!!! Xd

    • What now September 1, 2015

      KIIIII @ DA THUMBS DOWN. THE TRUTH HURTS

    Janet is the Princess of Pop, Madonna is Queen of pop. Sorry Janet lovers

    • JanStan September 1, 2015

      I’m seeing both in Vegas next month!! Janet on the 10th and Madge on the 24th. I. AM. DYING.

  18. Al September 1, 2015

    She’s dressing like this thanks to her Muslim husband. Sad.

  19. Theman September 1, 2015

    SHE’S THE GREATEST !!!!

  20. Theman September 1, 2015

    SHE”S THE GREATEST !

  21. hotness90 September 1, 2015

    They can’t take Queen Janet but yet they ran so fast to this post to watch her video. Yall make her relevant everyday. She thank yall for the promotion lol

  22. Truth September 1, 2015

    Janet’s stans need to humble themselves. She hasn’t been popular in over a decade and she’s not exactly dominating the scene with the comeback. All the showboating they like to do looks silly to anyone who isn’t deluded or living in the past. It’s not 1990.

    • JanStan September 1, 2015

      No one is dillusional about Janet’s current place in the industry. What we are though is aware of her legendary status in music and ESPECIALLY on stage. These kids just don’t get it and as someone that that knows her impact I have a duty to educate (with the help from fellow stans Beyonce, Pink, Ciara, and Aaliyah of course).

    • UMo September 1, 2015

      They sure do. Whitney was always bigger and more influential than Janet, yet why don’t I hear her annoying fans trying to claim credit for every female artist who came after her who unlike Janet could actually sing? Janet fans are full of sh**

      • JanStan September 1, 2015

        Stay in your lane. I love me some Miss Houston but have no idea wtf the point of your post was.

  23. Centurion September 1, 2015

    Class… pure class. When will Béybola the lessor?

    • fatusankoh September 1, 2015

      Dog set your hate mouth bey love Jannet

      • Centurion September 1, 2015

        B*tch I know that Béybola stans for Janet (e.g. the 2009 VMAs). It’s you insects that hate on Janet and even dare to compare her with that demonic bleached Harpy. It’s disgusting and downright despicable.

  24. Stephy September 1, 2015

    Miss Jackson If Ya Nasty! Go Legend Go! I can’t wait to see this LEGEND live. She didn’t disappoint me in 2011 & I know she won’t disappoint me in 2016!

  25. Avi September 1, 2015

    Call it laughable. If the Adult R&B songs chart meant anything, TGJ would’ve reported who was #1 last week. But because it’s Janet, it suddenly matters (this week). Miss me on all this bias’d reporting.

    • jjsrb September 1, 2015

      It’s the same like Dance chart. means nothing, I agree.

  26. jjsrb September 1, 2015

    Many fans talk about the lack of costumes. Costume changes are overrated. If you have a good show does it really matter if you change your outfit or not? Kudos to Janet for not going the flashy pop route with gazillion wardrobe changes and no singing and dancing. She’s not making a full of herself with some kitsch costumes and circus acts like some other ladies, and I’m thankful for that.

  27. pat September 1, 2015

    Who in music currently is doing choreo even half as intricate? I’ll wait….n u fans of gyrators n yoga Instructors will seethe!

    • JanStan September 1, 2015

  28. Mark111 September 1, 2015

    The Queen! This woman is out dancing Britney and J.No at age 49! You see those moves and not just @ss shaking and hair whiping. And her stage isn’t 10 feet unlike the Lackie “tour”.
    .
    Where’s the LAMEs, because if Janet can sing LIVE, why can’t your studio vocalist fave MooMoo? Hahahahahahahah

    • #JACKIE September 1, 2015

      B**** bye I’m sleeeep????

    • OMG Logic!!! September 1, 2015

      Janet and live in the same sentence? The shade writes itself LMAO! Janet has never sung a live note in her life and you’re beyond delusional if you think even her breathing was live in either of these videos.

      And calling Mariah a cow when Janet slips up and down with her weight more often than Japanese vomit po rn star? Girl, bye. At least Mariah can wear what she wants and not some ugly ass curtain to please her camel humping Arabian husband.

  29. k September 1, 2015

    dope.

  30. eric September 1, 2015

    The shoes and bottom part of the costume don’t appear natural on Janet. All for You was the last time that she was perfectly styled. I hope the tour looks better when it comes to the U.S. Janet can be hip without the silly clown shoes and trendy pants.

  31. Royalkev September 1, 2015

    I’m very content right now. Janet put on an amazing show! The tour is doing very well. The music sounds so promising and I know the album’s going to be incredible.

    The first single did what it’s suppose to do. It’s a R&B single from a 49 YO vet and it charted on R&B charts. I can’t with people expecting 40+ year old artists to soar to #1 (on the Hot 100)! 2015 ya’ll! If JJ’s not your cup of tea, that’s cool! Not pressed about it. Just don’t come with all the delusion. As for those bitter haters with struggle favs, it’s not even a good look for you! Anyway, I’m too busy soaking up Janet to spend time on it like taht! MF’n Bye! Janet slays! Period!

    • Lake Erie September 1, 2015

      Like literally lol.

      • Royalkev September 1, 2015

        Yup! That is all.

  32. OMG Logic!!! September 1, 2015

    Grandmadonna’s crinkly old bones move better and she still sings the occasional song live at 57. Sorry, but Minnie Mouse Jackson will forever be Madonna’s lesser.

    • Lake Erie September 1, 2015

      Ha! Love how you said “ocassional” you got that part right. Madonna is a joke.

  33. Lake Erie September 1, 2015

    One word:

    .

    Janet 😉

  34. @JanetCIARA_ September 1, 2015

    Girl If she don’t change costumes at least once when I see her in October, I will be over it!

  35. TheElusiveLamb September 1, 2015

    Congrats Queen! I really hope to see you at the top of every chart Ms. Jackson. You so deserve it love.

  37. Oscar September 2, 2015

    zzzzzz

  38. WizKey September 2, 2015

    Janet is a boring old has been who needs to just go play Vegas with the other washed up used-to-be’s. #SORRYNOTSORRY

    • A.Nefertari September 2, 2015

      H** shut your basic ass up youre a nobody and nobody likes you rejected b****

  39. Ellie Lights 93 September 2, 2015

    Adult R&B Chart? Sad. Janet’s new song flopped on the more relevant charts and she’s not breaking any attendance records with her roadshow. Call it an aging pop star with aging fans who together live in the past delusionally hoping for what will never be again.

    • A.Nefertari September 2, 2015

      B**** stfu lame ass h**

  40. SPUNKYPOOP September 2, 2015

    I don’t need to say anything this article says it all. Her single #1 again…it’s officially a comeback! ….Her SOLD OUT tour kicked Ass..What more do u want its JANET Miss JACKSON if you NaSTY!

  41. Stav September 2, 2015

    I laugh at the way y’all like to pretend with this woman. If after almost a decade away, the only anticipation she had culminated with a measly urban AC hit, then that pretty much says it all. Babies who were being born the last time she had a real hit are now teenagers. Nobody is checking for Janet Jackson these days (except for hold-over 40 year old fans who’ll go to her concert so that they can relive their youth for one night via those old ass hits from yesterday) and nobody bounces back from as long a dry spell as she’s had. She better stretch out this tour for as long as she can, because this is undoubtedly her swansong.

    • Renzo585 September 2, 2015

      You sound stupid me and all my friends are in our 20’s and we are checking for Janet….. Get a life

  42. Ariel September 2, 2015

    Oooh, I don’t like those big in the crotch pants she got on. No, ma’am.

  43. Ameya September 2, 2015

    No wonder! Goddess knows what her followers need! My hunger and thirst for entertainment fully got satisfied with those amazing live performances and specially of No sleeep! It rocked the arena! Loved it! Keep it up!!
