From The Vault: Janet Jackson – ‘All For You’

Published: Sunday 23rd Apr 2017 by Joe

From The Vault honors Pop Queen Janet Jackson this week again. Today’s pick is her 2001 record-breaking comeback effort, ‘All For You.’

The title-track of Janet’s seventh studio album, ‘All For You’ is yet another Jackson/Jam/Lewis creation. Based on a sample of Change’s ‘Glow Of Love’ and chosen as the album’s first single, it was significantly more upbeat and colorful than what could be found on the trio’s previous effort ‘The Velvet Rope’.

Back in 2001, the single made history in the US for being the first song to be added to every Pop, Rhythmic and Urban format within its first week of release. It was to the point that MTV even dubbed Janet “The Queen Of Radio”… which if you know your Janet History is quite ironic.

It spent 7 weeks atop of the Billboard Hot 100, hit #1 in Canada and reached the Top 5 in the UK, France and Australia among many other countries.

If ‘All For You’ was such a home-run, it had a lot to do with its Dave Meyers-directed video. A noticeably slimmer Jackson can be seen dancing around a two-dimensional Los Angeles after spotting a cutie on the subway.

The visual was nominated for several MTV Video Music Awards including Best Choreography and Video Of The Year.

[Sidenote : how epic is THAT dance-break?]

The ‘All For You’ era saw Janet celebrating single life after being married for over a decade … and subtly dragging her ex along the way.

With the superstar currently going through her third divorce, we’re clearly not the only ones wondering if a new music project will document the falling out of her marriage and give us insight on her new life as a single mother.

After all, there are so many chapters that haven’t been told yet, and we know the world is eager to hear them.

Your thoughts?

    Her last AMAZING era. Mariah´s was The Emancipation in 2005 and Madonna´s was Confessions in 2005 too.

    Sorry she just isn’t it for her sound that ashy alto doesn’t work for me & the Michael Jackson comparison when out with their duet of “Scream” which was cute then….

    What’s ironic is that whoever wrote this post is the one who needs to do their Janet history homework. Janet has only been divorced once. Her first marriage was annulled, and currently she’s separated; neither one of them has filed for divorce.
