MTV is honoring Britney Spears come August 28; this video shows Spears dancing around and many nods to pop’s greatest figures: Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and Madonna.
My favorite scene in the video has got to be this one, Ms. Jackspears:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Janet Jackson is opening the night with a tribute to her late bother, a performance that is set to bring down the house. Some of the dancers included go back as far as the Control era. Above is the VMAs promo regarding Janet’s performance.
Janet Jackson has opened up for the first time since Michael passed away. You can read Bazaar’s exclusive interview on their website here. You’ll find out that she: 1. Finished filming the sequel to Tyler Perry’s No.1 box office smash Why Did I Get Married?, aptly titled Why Did I Get Married Too. 2. Finished writing a diet/self-esteem book called True You. 3. Is working on a new album. 4. Is planning to tour the album afterwards.
“Just let me do all the work” Janet opens the song, whispering.
You know what you’re in for right? This is a somewhat rare song of hers, not on any of her albums, but it should’ve been. Its structure is very simple, but the chorus/spoken words will hook you up.

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned“, ever heard that saying before? Yes? good, so you know what this list is all about. I have to give the grand prize to black and country songstresses, they sing about this topic like no other, and you’ll know exactly why after downloading the songs below! PS: I’ll write the “take-away” lines from each song belows it.

Chocolate, the tastiest ingredient on earth, here refers to the tastiest songs, music, and artists. No one sings love songs like black people, no racism, no strings attached, it’s just facts. Soul music, R&B, Motown, are all primarily black music, and love is the subject of 99% of those songs. So here’s a little compilation of love sings, that’s sure to put a smile on your pretty face when heard! So hurry up and get loadin’.
I could sleep to the sound of Jill talking, let alone singing, here’re some of her best love-filled songs, her writing is immense, especially the second and third ones! Fact: Janet Jackson said Come See Me is her favorite track off Jill’s album while promoting Why Did I Get Married? in which they starred alongside each other.
I Wanna Be (Your Baby)
I know it’s not her best, but I love that song, it came up while shuffling, and I just stood still listening to the lyrics defining and dissecting a love so strong, and “laying it on the line”
Spending Time With You
Any Time, Any Place
Love 2 Love
No one does sexy love ballad like Ms. Jackson, a song that’s very underrated and ignored is “Love 2 Love” which I think is beyond great, the beat, the vocals, the overall production, it’s a hard-hitting one!
Nothing Even Matter
I won’t say a word, listen to the lyrics.
Never Felt This Way (Interlude)
Taken from her debut album, this beautifully crafted interlude was dismissed/ignored by the public because of it being a mere interlude, I think it’s better than half of the album, if you’ve never heard and you like any Alicia song, just make sure to grab it while it’s here!
Make Me Whole
“Make Me Whole” is a modern classic, or it should be. It’s the IT song for lovers, not exaggerating when I say it’s one of the best songs I have heard my whole life. For Real is just beautiful, the high-notes towards the end are crazy, didn’t know she had it in her!
1st & Love
“1st & Love” is one of the best songs on Brandy’s latest LP, it stood out immediately, it has a killer hook, an epic chorus, and beautiful cutesy lyrics! “Fall” is also a gem of hers, “When you find someone that means so much to you, giving all you got is easy to do”
Nasty – Janet Jackson [Download]
No, my first name ain’t baby, It’s Janet… Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty” enough said.
Right Round (Feat. Ke$ha) – Flo Rida [Download]
Okay, I caved, it’s catchy, what can I say? I love how Kesha’s voice sounds exactly like Katy Perry, maybe they’re using the same autotune effect?
Bliss – Mariah Carey [Download]
Her high notes in the background are to die for, get it!
I Couldn’t Love You More – Sade [Download]
Very smooth, very slick, very relaxing, very Sade.
Pocketbook (Feat. Ludacris) – Jennifer Hudson [Download]
“GIVE IT TO ME”, infectious is what I would say.
What Am I So Afraid Of? (Feat. Trisha, Keke and Kiley) – Randy Jackson [Download]
This is the female version of One Republic’s “Apologize”, it’s in the same vein as that, great song!
Play The Field – Jaguar Wright [Download]
The list started on a high-note, and that’s how it’s gonna end. Discover a new artist if you’ve never heard of her, her voice is crazy.
Song: I Get Lonely
Artist: Janet Jackson
Album: Velvet Rope
In short: One of my all-time favorite Janet ballads, I really wonder what happened to those send-shiver-down-your-spine ballads, they were classy, unlike her more recent stuff, Never Letchu Go, Greatest X..etc. The only good recent ballad of hers is Can’t B Good, and it’s not even as good as her older ones, it’s a shame she won’t ever top her older self! Enjoy the song, and keep blasting it out all day.
