Janet Jackson Soars To #1 on iTunes With New Single ‘Made For Now’

Published: Friday 17th Aug 2018 by David

Not even 24 hours after releasing her long-awaited new single ‘Made For Now,’ the first lift from her yet-titled follow-up album to 2015’s ‘Unbreakable,’ pop icon Janet Jackson’s returned to familiar territory on the charts:  the top spot.

Having just unveiled its Dave Meyers-directed music video at 12a EST, the song’s skipped over the day’s top hits (i.e. Cardi B’s ‘I Like It,’ Drake’s ‘In My Feelings,’ and more) to capture the iTunes Pop charts perch.

Details inside:

As of time reported, the iTunes Pop charts reflects Jackson’s Daddy Yankee-assisted single’s reign.  As it relates to the top 100 songs in full, Janet’s ‘Made’ is the only new song featured in the Aretha Franklin-dominated top 10.  See that chart below:

Off to a promising start, keep it locked to That Grape Juice to see where the tune’s radio impact, streaming, and digital sales help it land when it makes its Hot 100 debut week after next.

    with all the promo, touring, and this just being such an all format song…..it’s not going away anytime soon. The Queen is here!

    • Bencelo August 17, 2018

      it’s not even number one and is already falling

      • Rasputia Latimore August 18, 2018

        Janet is an icon Bencelo. Trash like you needs to respect the iconic legends or stfu. This is a celebration of a new Janet era. Haters go dissappear or better yet take her advice and live for now. Ugly Troll hating ass. Make yourself useful and fetch me some weed and some wine coolers.

      • SMH August 18, 2018

        Wrong. Still number one and still #6 main. Try again.

  2. next bih August 17, 2018

    Queen Janet is back with love and positivity.. A TRUE Queen!

      With the mic off?

      • next bih August 17, 2018

        @Iggy : on or off- doesn’t really matter *** turns on ‘Doesn’t really matter 2018 performance”

      • Trose August 17, 2018

        So petty lol I screamed she is still royalty

      • Rasputia Latimore August 17, 2018

        Her mic is on. You can tell she sings live dumb ass.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 17, 2018

      That´s Tina. The greatest female performer of all time.

      • House Nicca August 17, 2018

        It damn sure ain’t Mariah, c***.

  4. JaQuanna Man 4 Lames😂😂😂😂 August 17, 2018

    Yes QUEEN JANET!!!

  5. Keith August 17, 2018

    This is a great opening and will lead to commercial radio exposure i hope. Im anxious to see its trajectory on the “real” charts (Billboard). Hopefully this will be her “Believe” (as one reaction video said)…

  6. King z August 17, 2018

    Go Jan!!

    Side note: Wow!!! Aretha is kiling it

  7. JanStan August 17, 2018

    As a super Janet fan I’m happy for her and to see that she’s doing some traditional promo so that I can actually see her!!!! While the song itself isn’t what I love most from Janet (bangers, baby making anthems) I’m hoping that the album has this uptempo feel. Love this QUEEN!!!!

    • Lake Erie August 17, 2018

      Mmmm…… 😏. word on the street is she isn’t doing an album JUST YET…. She’s actually coming out with an EP… 😏….. I heard the EP is supposed to be LIT… So that’s like amazing to me! In my head, that’s 2 bodies of work on the way basically….. Janet is SERVING this MF era!!! Wigs BEEN snatched off these fools! NOW she scalping what’s left! Come through Janet!!

  8. Fancy BISH August 17, 2018

    This is such a bop! ❤️ 🎶

  9. Jeans August 17, 2018

    I’m in love with this song and Video! ♥️

  10. Iggy August 17, 2018

    Smh y’all so this all the time. Know damn well the song gonna debut at #67 and free fall from there. Idk why y’all pretend to care when y’all don’t

    • next bih August 17, 2018

      You care, girl….

    • Caleb August 17, 2018

      And even if it does I don’t see what the big deal is. She is a 52 year old artist who has been in the music biz going on four decades. Obviously it’s an achievement at that point to even be on the hot 100.

    • Highbrow August 18, 2018

      You fail to acknowledge the lack of support and the blacklisting this woman experiences from all platforms yet she still manages to stay on top while her competitors reap all the benefits. She has nothing to prove and what you also fail to recognize is that this queen has absolutely nothing to prove. She has done it all and said it all and received success from all of it. You’re a broke b**** who can’t recognize a real one when you see one.

    • SMH August 18, 2018

      Didn’t Iggy debut at #144? Do you really wanna have this conversation?

    • iamme August 18, 2018


  11. Pink Tingz August 17, 2018

    Yes, I love me some Janet.

  12. JOHNVIDAL August 17, 2018

    DEfinitely what should have been her comeback 3 years ago. Now this is radio friendly, commercial and still quality. The look of the video amazing. And she still got some good moves. Love the last part. Visually she always soooo African. Another lane Beyonce is not the pioner at lol
    I always say Madonna is clearly the queen of pop and the most successful one, but this new single by Janet is definitely more on point and with the times and fresh than anything Madonna has tried to pass as a single in the last 8 years.
    Janet is not #1 on itunes though. Aretha Franklin is.

    • next bih August 17, 2018

      You white Queens are always so pressed to bring up Madonna.. Nobody is talking about Madonna, this is for THE CULTURE. Janet at 52 is bringing Black and brown people together to celebrate our beauty whilst madonna at 52 was showing her bu_t and calling her song n_igga on instagram. Leave it alone, that feud is dead. Two Queens in their own lanes- but Madonna can’t see Janet on the Dance floor… not by a long shot

      • JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2018

        next bis
        And? Who said anything negative? If anything it was you. Neither Janet nor Madonna are my faves or anything so shup up. Janet of course dances better than madonna lol and?

      • TrueTea August 27, 2018

        glad to see Janet have an attempt to come back, hopefully this time she won’t have to give her album away with Uber rides (that was pretty pathetic) and b****: MADONNA is better than Janet in almost everyway, le let’s make this a race issue? ok you Black b****** can’t stand it that perhaps in your 1990 projects hood Janet was #1 but for the rest of the world is MADONNA, DEAL WITH IT B******.

    • House Nicca August 17, 2018

      Madonna is a dried up ass prune, f**. This is about Janet. Stay on topic, ugleeeee!

    • Suicide Blonde August 18, 2018

      I agree mate.

  13. Jeans August 17, 2018

    This song deserves to be a global smash!

  14. Real Musiz August 17, 2018

    Are y’all stans mad yet that the Pop 👑 Queen is back!? 😂 Queen J 🐝 zzzzzzz still killing it with her Melanin in tack! Opening her show with Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and many more Blacks being killed by the police….. Yasssss the Social conscious Jackson is snatching y’all wigs!

  15. Lake Erie August 17, 2018

    Everything I expected and more! I love it! Watched the video like 10 times already! And I can’t even keep count of how many times I listened to it throughout the day. ❤ She’s back!!! Janet is HERE!!! Can’t wait for her to perform this tonight I believe!?!?! 🤩

  16. Bencelo August 17, 2018

      This song is so epic!

  26. RoyalKev August 18, 2018

    Janet is really coming hard! MFN is slayage!

  27. Robert August 24, 2018

    Sadly radio has passed on this new Janet song. And in Itune sales after a weeks release has fallen off the top 40. Streaming is only 20 million. Not likely to debut in the HOT 100. It’s so much harder for 80’s vets to make a comeback. Sad indeed. I was hoping radio would’ve added this jam
