Releasing something like this was a mistake, IMO. Half of her fanbase ain't here for it.

Gimme No Sleeep 2.0. instead!

This was a cute/pleasant song but.... it could've been sung by virtually ANYONE.

The song is nothing special tbh and I can see why it flopped. It's an okay song but not the kind of song that would grab anyone's attention. I hope Janet gives us better songs than this on her EP.

Another "No Sleeep" would be a non-event. Not to mention, "No Sleeep" pretty much was a copycat of "That's the Way Love Goes". Janet attempted to re-create her old image and sound with Unbreakable, which was not necessary. She would have had a "GTFO" non-charting single if she did the same quiet storm sounding single again.

It didn't flop. She's 52, her song has over 40 million views and it charted on the Hot 100. Lower your expectations for older divas. It's not like that they will be topping charts like before.

Why?
Her Catalogue is big enough for her to tour forever and she hasn't really released anything iconic IMO as off late.

Well, i am happy with the music she has released (Unbreakable album, MFY single) so i'm happy that she is still releasing new music.

Maybe she didn't do anything iconic in this decade, music wise, but "Unbreakable" got great reviews, it was included on many year-end lists and made her one of only three solo artists with No. 1 albums in each of the past four decades. That's iconic enough if you ask me. And she might have a No. 1 album in the next decade too. :P

I don't think that she should stop making music. It's still charting, it raises interest in her old music and she's even getting some new fans. Until recently it was really rare to see comments and tweets about her in Spanish, and now they're everywhere, and they are all positive. The number of subscribers on YouTube doubled in a month. She has millions and a half monthly listeners on Spotify more than usual, and the number of followers is rising faster than ever. Those are all good reasons to continue making new music and that upcoming song with Bruno Mars will most certainly help even more. Daddy Yankee isn't big in America but the song still charted. Imagine when she releases a song with Bruno.

I don't. It's been years since I've seen her live.

Made For Now is still on high replay for me.
