As per usual, I’ve been listening to Janet. Love me some Janet. What album? THE album: janet. I had this twitter convo with a friend who is THE biggest Janet fan on Earth. His wife’s name is even Janet! He asked which songs were my top 3. It literally took me an entire afternoon to name the 3 but I had to go with Again, If and That’s the Way Love Goes which also happens to be my all-time favourite Janet track. I remember when I first saw the video and Janet was going on about Sade (another fave of mine) and I thought “Oooh, I like this already!”
There were a number of samples on this album, some of which aren’t even that recognizable. Not as obvious as many other samples you’d hear out there. The sample from James Brown‘s Papa Don’t Take No Mess I thought was done brilliantly.
