    I would be more surprised if a new Janet album DIDN’T open at (or close to) the top.

    She built back a bit of goodwill with the last album and she still has enough of a core fanbase to generate solid, if unspectacular numbers.

    The odds will always be stacked against her with the single. But I’d expect the label to have the sense to keep the momentum going with a few more videos and pencil in a date for the album once they’re absolutely sure she won’t be going up against anything major to ensure there are no ‘embarrassing defeats’ on the horizon.

    Yeah what Jark said. I can't name a diva over 35 that radio DID touch in 2002-2004. Janet was never the anomaly but I think the Superbowl just exacerbated the damaged perception of her career at that time. Also , I still maintain that "Just a Little While" was a bizarre lead single choice (I am convinced "All Nite" could have done better if lead) and 20 Y.O. was just a shit album not that it did that poorly in the scheme of things.

    The whole “Damita Jo” project should have started with “I Want You”- and without nipplegate, she’d have still had a big hit with it too. It remains tremendously frustrating to me that for a song so good, it’s now just a footnote to her career...

    This gets better with every single play.

    And the video is AMAZING.

    I'm not sure why anyone should dislike it.

    I'm so sick of Vile Gaez hating on music, when you know that if some basic pop girl like Taylor Swift had released it they'd be all over it.

    I feel like as a softened Janft hater I should add that it's fine and probably the best thing I've heard from her this side of the millennium. But that's neither saying much and is in light of a personal reassessment of her early work.

    No. Gaez are a special type of gays as established during the 'Moopy is vile and sexist Khia/JLo-gate' meltdown. Get with it mats

    I actually have no idea if it is or if it isn't.

    I presume that Janft has enough cash in the bank that she doesn't either.

    So this turned out to be a #88 SMASH for Janft.
    Why break the habit of a lifetime I guess?

    What a weird name, (Les Moonves), I read it first as some artist trying to sound sophisticated by using French :D
