First Impressions: Why You Should Get Excited About Janet's New Album Now

Monday, September 14, 2009

You know, all summer long I was hoping for a song that got my juices a-going. John Legend's "Green Light" did that for me last summer when it was leaked in the early parts of June and it tied me over all the way into the frosty winter months of 2009. This summer, though didn't provide that one song that just had me jumping out of my seat, sweating out my perm and just all around brought that instant groove. Probably because it hadn't been created yet, and that this summer's banger had to come a little later than usual, and that it had to come from Miss Janet Jackson, a performer who knows how to slam a jam without even batting an eye. In the wee hours of the morning, Janet unleashed a beast of a dance track on her website as a gift to her fans. Janet seriously needs to do Secret Santa with me this year as she gives some FANTASTIC gifts. The track "Make Me" cooks a mean groove, with its pulsating funk meets disco range, infectious lyrical play and just razor sharp production. Recalls notes of her late brother's 1979 hit, "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" and even her early (and somewhat forgotten) 1982 hits, "Say You Do" and "Young Love", but with an modern edge. At post time, no word on who produced this (Jam & Lewis for $10 bucks) and if this is actually going to be on that rumored new Janet release, but be damn, this is EXACTLY what Janet fans and stans alike have been waiting for. Just perfection.

Make Me
