I very much doubt I'll be able to find these as I'm in another department altogether but I may do some hunting if I can!
They completely ignore songs like I Decided
Perhaps 'I Decided' didn't make the playlist because it's crap.
And there track record with previous Freemasons productions)
They're also ignoring We Break The Dawn! Also Feedback and Outta My Head were completely ignored too!
I don't know who you're talking about with any of these titles apart from Janet. R1 have to cater for their target audience... ie chart music, new / fresh / groundbreaking music. And much as I love Janet Jackson myself, it's no surprise that a song by an ageing artist that didn't even make the top 40 wasn't considered to be very Radio 1.
No Michelle Williams Again But A Chris Brown Re-Release Which Is Doing Nothing On Downloads Is A-List Because His Last 2 Were Hits
Ask the average 15-24 year-old who Michelle Williams is and they will look at you blankly. Then ask them if they know who Chris Brown is
Again, it has to be stuff that is suitable, by artists that the target audience is either familiar with or likely to be interested in.
