    Anything Jimmy Jam/Terry Lewis x Janet deserves some attention. Sounds like a lost cut from The Velvet Rope to me. 



    Control to Rhythm Nation to janet. to The Velvet Rope IMO might be the one of the greatest runs of R&B albums in my era, so obviously I'm pretty hyped for the return. 

    Some remixes worth your time:

    This track is great. Reminds me of when she came out with "That's The Way Love Goes". Has the same vibe. Hope the album is more like this single.

    If Mariah can't make the comeback, I'm not sure Janet can but I am rooting for her

    Mariah lost her voice (and had some terribly written songs),  Janet's selling point never really been her voice

    Not to take anything away from Mariah, but Janet's an all-around entertainer. The way the industry blacklisted her after the Super Bowl was some BS as well. Her concert tickets are selling out left & right. Managed to snag some for me and the wife in Charlotte :smokin

    So is Madonna but 50 year olds selling sex appeal doesn't really work

    We're talking about 2 totally different artists. Sex appeal is just one aspect of what they bring to the table. When that fades, they still have their enormous catalogue of hits.

    If people are still willing to pay their hard earned money to see them perform, that means everything.

    This pretty much. It seems like Mariah's been trying to keep up with having a modern sound, but it's not working out too well IMO. Whereas Janet kinda just stays in her own music lane and is this all encompassing artist (great choreo, voice is decent at best and production is usually on point). I'm not gonna front like the last couple of albums haven't been bricks, but if this single is any indication she's definitely back on the right track.

    Sorry for sidetracking the discussion of the single which i really liked, and im glad it wasn't going after the 120+ BPM stuff, but are there any other R&B people to check out that are rocking this sort of sound now. The 65-70 bpm trap beat R&B songs are cool but this is just to damn smooth and i need more of it.

    Well Miguel's new album is about to drop and I'm sure it's be in his vein of production.

    I'm really liking the song, Unbreakable. I can't really describe the beat, but there's a refined earthiness to it.
