Janet Jackson – “Feedback”
Let me tell YOU…..R&B is O-U-T! Sorry to say but this is fact. We are slowly emerging into 2008, get with the times. I like to spectate a lot and in my observation I learned that young adults (roughly 18-35) generally do not enjoy R&B or “slow music” but instead leaning towards dance-pop, electro, house, alternative, etc. or just “fast-pace music.” This group of persons (including me) may consist of your average club/party goers but also include people who work out, drive, dance in the mirror — I’m sure you get my point. I do not believe anything can be just R&B anymore, this is apparent.
In objection to Janet Jackson’s “change”: I see none. Jackson has always been pop and edgy, so this is no surprise: THIS is Miss Jackson.
Artists do occasionally switch up their styles to accommodate and it is inevitable, I’m afraid. But really, I want to see the same people-crying-R&B-Janet’s receipts for 20 Y.O. or HELL any female R&B artist’s album lately … Thank you. Janet is back and now it’s all or nothing!
“My swag is serious something heavy like a first-day period” – it doesn’t get more serious than that, people! Now dance dammit!
Regardless of how hard urban radio tries to avoid this, they cannot. As I speak this shit is blowing up slowly and people are going crazy.
