    Yeah. They didn't have concrete plans, but they had an idea that "Love Will Never Do (Without You)" could be a duet with Prince or other male singer. When Janet sang her first verse with low voice, pretending to be her male partner, they loved the way it sounded and decided to leave it like that.

    On one hand, I'm sad she never had a duet with Prince, but on the other, I'm glad that she had all of her 10 BB Hot 100 number ones in a lead role, without featured artists or co-lead artists.

    It's a fan account. "Doesn't Really Matter" is really in a great quality.

    On this day, in 1995, Michael and Janet Jackson released their only duet, “Scream.”

    Happy birthday to Janet's older sisters, a Grammy-winning songwriter La Toya Jackson, and talented Rebbie Jackson, whose debut single went Gold in the U.S.and peaked at No. 4 in New Zealand.

    They were made by great, current hit-makers and some of the bet producers, but it wasn't easy to make people pay attention to somebody's sister, and especially Michael Jackson's sister. The world didn't have and won't have any star that big, not even close, so it made easier to Janet to get a contract, but much harder to actually become make people listen to her music and become a star. Many brothers, sisters, sons and daughters tried, but only few succeed, in both, music and film. She had to come up with something really special and revolutionary.

    The "janet." album was one of the best transitions from one decade to another. Many artists were trying, with more or less success, to put themselves together and adopt new trends in new reality. With Janet that came somehow naturally.

    Only two albums in the in 90s and they sold around 40 million records (not counting DOAD, collaborations, or anything from RN1814). So impressive and more than enough for entire career.

    The janet. era was such an effortless reinvention. She really didn't miss a beat trading her buttoned-up Rhythm Nation image for slinky mid-drift-heavy styles. And the album is so eclectic, confidently moving through a variety of genres. What a triumph!

    In 1990, Virgin Records began talks to sign Janet Jackson – the world’s top female singer. The odds weren’t looking good that we would be able to pull it off. So I decided to go out on a limb and take Janet up above the clouds in a hot air balloon ride.
    Signing Janet Jackson By Richard Branson: https://www.virgin.com/richard-brans...-janet-jackson

    I really wish Virgin Records, with Mr. Branson at the head, still exists. While it was his, it was by far the coolest label that ever existed,a major and indie label at the same time. Indie considering freedom they were giving to their artists, and major if we have in mind their investments, sales, and artists they signed.

    Happy Birthday, janet.!

    I like The Velvet Rope and Rhythm Nation 1814 more than this, Damita Jo too; but I've came to think that this is her most musically experimental effort. She branched out and experimented a lot here; for a self titled album there are many songs on it that didn't sound like usual Janet songs in comparison to Control and Rhythm Nation 1814. Lots of underrated album tracks here. The campaign itself was amazing and set a blueprint, particularly for many younger artists in the R&B/urban field who have imitated Janet's style.

    So, so legendary. She literally invented the good girl gone bad transition that countless female artists (Britney, Xtina, Rihanna, Miley....) went through with that era. Let’s not forget the iconic Virgin record deal that she signed prior to its release. It's the best-selling album of her career, its opening week sales were the biggest first week sales for a female artist at that time and its one of only seven albums to produce six Top 10 hits (including two #1s). And we don’t even have to talk about its artwork. Arguably one of the most iconic pictures ever. And it’s an amazing album on top of all of that.

    Legendary.

    Good morning!

    On this day in 1993, “janet.” — the top-selling studio album by a female artist of the year in Europe, Canada, the U.S., and probably entire world — was released. Revisit this masterpiece on Spotify.

    Happy Birthday, Janet.



    Pillow Talk" is originally from the janet. sessions - David Ritz and Janet briefly talked about it in Billboard magazine in 2018.
