The Skinny On Janet Jackson

She’s looking good. Just in time for her upcoming release of the new album. The song released on her website is not on her forthcoming album, and is not her first single. The new single is called “Call on Me,” and it will be released to radio on June 19th.

Late last week, Janet Jackson placed a count down clock on her website JanetJackson.com. The countdown expired yesterday at 12 noon when fans were treated to a new song by Janet titled “Weekend”.

The new track, which has yet to be confirmed as the lead single for her upcoming cd tentatively titled 20 Years Old, is a throwback to early 80’s dance music. Sampling herself and a host of other dance notables of the 80’s Janet also throws in a healthy dose of that sugary sweet pop she became famous for. The track itself is bananas. Overall it is reminiscent of 80’s dance queen Shannon. Remember that song “Let the Music Play”? Anyways…. if Jermaine Dupri produced “Weekend” then he is right on point in terms of ushering Janet back into the heavy dance era as intended.
