Janet Jackson

Pop icon Janet Jackson dropped a new single today titled "No Sleeep" off her much-anticipated upcoming album.

The track is produced by Janet's old mainstays Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Jam and Lewis crafted a soulful beat that is just catchy enough to make you forget the limitations in Janet's mediocre breathy vocals.

Janet is gearing up for a world tour that kicks off in August.

    I love downbeat music. This is really nice, but , I think she should have used Rapheal Saddiq for this project... if she going this route. Would have been more soulful. Good job on this, Janet!

    not bad...

  • Femme404

    "Why fo cum"? I'm confused.

  • stanhope

    I am delighted Janet is back. This has a nice vibe but it isn't the song to put her back on top. She needs a hot dance track that rules!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I like it. It's a nice laid back and mello song perfect for this type weather. I can't wait for her show at Chastain Sept 26.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    very nice vibe. Janet's not scratching to be back on top though imo. I think her years of working with JD were indicative of her efforts to be back on top. I'm glad she's sticking to what she knows vs making that silly atlanta music good for one month. She's an icon, a legend, and should've never been workign with JD and Khia (although I like that sog).

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Is it my iPhone or my vision that is making one of my favorite artist look like she has an extra set of teeth? I don't see her bottom lip?????

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    This song is good cruising and traveling music , similar to her old music. What happened to Janet's ??by the way ? The daughter she had in hiding? ??

  • Keyshia Ray

    I like the beat but her voice i cant just like ciara.

  • mrkent_ga

    It's cute or whateva!!!!

  • Julian

    Right in Janet's lane ..She's Back! Now if we could just get Sade to drop fresh music I would be good

  • Denver Knight

    Out of ALL the pics you could've chosen you chose that one...smh lol
    Sandra up to her old tricks again...

  • Denver Knight

    This guy on Facebook said it best

    Michael James Leslie ·

    Her career was ruined because there was a flash of her breast during a Superbowl that contained ads for Viagra and a flatulent horse. Janet, defiant, comes back with a funky, sexy, summer baby making song. She avoided the trap of coming back with a generic dance track like today's divas. How could she? THEY are copying Janet, so why would the "original" do something that sounded like the copy. No Sleeep sounds as though she never left us. Do not fear my friends, I know Janet has some great uptempo tunes on the new album. Welcome back Janet, welcome back Jam and Lewis. We have missed you...

  • Denver Knight

    And another guy said it even a little better

    Ronnue Rasean

    JANET IS BACK
    so when I first saw this song was released I listened through my phone and was a lil DISAPPOINTING but I had to remind myself that phone SPEAKERS are the worst devices to listen to music on and said Ronnue put on a pair of head phones and I'M GLAD I DID!!!!! THIS SONG IS DOPE and let me tell YOU WHY!!!!!
    First of all Janet is SINGING on this song
    the chorus is sUng in her lower register and layered with an higher octave. She starts off with her signature whisper during the verse but once she gets to the bridge she is in full voice. The baseline is sick!!!!!!
    she is not trying to sound like the YOUNG CHICKS OUT (THE MISTAKE mADONNA, mARIAH AND jOLO MADE WITH THERE LATEST OFFERINGS) SHE IS BEING 100% JANET!!!
    THIS SONG IS SOOOOOOO SUMMER. COCKTAILS AND 420.
    THIS SONG IS FOR THE GROWN AND SEXY11111 I LOVE IT!!!!!!

  • cam

    I'm so worried for this album. Been waiting and I feel like it will have a lot of fillers. I don't see why management wouldn't suggest to her working with a couple of young producers. Hell a song or two....

  • middleagerant42

    I'm feeling this it's something to chill to. Glad she went back to Jimmy and Terry.

  • SouljaSociety

    Sounds good, I like it..... But sounds like she recorded this in 2003.... Yall sure this is new?

  • sunni_daze

    Come thru Janet!!!!! Yess.

  • Traci404

    Yes, Ma am! Love this GROOVE --- Janet is back!

  • Traci404

    We need this, not the ratchet music being played on the radio and NOT SELLING NOW.

    GROWN AND SEXY MUSIC-- is back!

    CAN JANET DO A GUEST APPEARANCE ON EMPIRE?

  • prynsexxx

    I'm apologize. You must be fairly new to the blog to understand the "SR lingo". Again, my apologies.

  • Femme404

    I get it! Lol.
