Janet Jackson has been an unstoppable force in music for a very long time. She has cemented herself as being one of the greatest of all time. As of late, Janet Jackson has been taking things easy since her announcement that she was putting the tour on hold to plan her family with husband Wissam Al Mana. Some say is Janet really pregnant? While she hasn’t 100% said she was, the latest photos of her out a few weeks ago suggest she is. Some fans have taken to social media about not being happy about the postponement of the tour, but long time die-hard fans are happy for Janet. Fans have stated how Janet has given over 30 years of her life to her career and fans and that this time is for Janet to do what she wants to do. Let’s not forget the fact that in October of last year, Janet dropped her 11th studio album Unbreakable. This release garnered Janet her 7th Number One album.
Some say Janet was done years ago, mainly because of all the backlash she still faces from her infamous wardrobe malfunction. We are not here to talk about that incident. When Janet’s facts are read, how can Janet be done? She has no talent or hits. I, personally don’t know what planet they have been on but Janet is one of the most awarded individual artists in history. She is one of three artists to have number one albums in 4 different decades, the 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and 10’s. This is a feat in itself. Also if Janet’s albums were recertified, she would have a few Diamond certifications. Let’s not forget that Janet had 7 singles reach #1 on Rhythm Nation 1814.
26 years after the success of Rhythm Nation, Janet releases Rhythm Nation’s baby Unbreakable. Unbreakable is what some call Rhythm Nation II. This album to say the least has been very successful so far, without much promotion. Janet has done no interviews since her return. Also for this album, Janet hooked up with long time friend Missy Elliott and newcomer J. Cole. The popularity from this album stems from her tour which sold out in some cities very quickly. Janet also did a photo shoot for Emirates Women magazine, where she showed her more relaxed fun side. Sole promotion of the album came from Social Media. On her 49th birthday, Janet tweeted “I promised you would hear it from my lips. Now you will. New music,a New world tour. I’ve been listening.Let’s keep the conversation going. Fans have done just that using the #conversationsinacafe.This album has earned hits which include No Sleep, Burn It Up and Damn Baby, and Unbreakable.
Fans around the world, have even taken to social media to show off some choreography from Janet’s newest video Damn Baby. Damn Baby video was released in May of last year. This video stripped away all the lights and flashy props and just gave us the dancers, sick choreography by Lu Brown and Gil Duldulao and Janet Jackson breaking it down. To say it all, Janet knows what her fans want without even asking. She knows what works. She doesn’t give less than what her best is. Love. Janet puts her love through her career like no other. When she creates new material, she has a few things in mind. Her happiness, her fans, and love. She turns a blind eye to the media and focuses on what’s really important. She treats her fans with so much love and respect. You rarely see it in these times. You get Janet, all of her or none of her. She will not put on face to please anyone. Janet is just who she say she is.
Some artist I see today have said Janet influenced them in their careers. You can tell through their music and style that Janet deserves the legendary status she has been given. You can only be considered legendary if you look back over your career and you left behind a legacy. Janet’s legacy can never be tarnished. It would take a lifetime to try to undo all of the great work she has, from being a humanitarian and for countless hits from a very extended music catalog.
Janet will always and forever be Unbreakable
