    30/05/01 Jam and Lewis Defend Janet's Lyrics

    Janet Jackson's producer Jimmy Jam has confessed some of the sexy lyrics on Janet's All For You album took him by surprise especially the controversial Would You Mind, but says it is up to parents and not the record industry to regulate what their children listen to.
    Commenting on a US government report criticising the record industry for deliberately exposing young pop and rock fans to lewd lyrics, Jam said: 'One of the things parents tend to do quite a lot is say, `Turn that off.' Often they don't even know what it is. You don't have to like it but be aware of it. 'When Janet brought that song and sang that to me, my first reaction was `Whoa!.'..but I absolutely love the record. The thing about Janet's records is that they've always been very honest and you've basically watched a woman grow up from the age of 18 and now you have a 35-year-old woman who is embracing love and not shy saying what she would like to do or would like to have done to her.'
    Jam, who co-produced All For You with partner Terry Lewis, says he hasn't a problem with sexy lyrics and confesses his four-year-old son's favourite song of last year was Ludacris' What's Your Fantasy with its 'I want to lick, lick, lick you from your head to toes' refrain. 'When he sings it he has no idea of the connotation.'
    Jam says when he wants his son to sing to songs which contain foul language he encourages him to come up with alternative, clean words. Jam says parents need to take responsibility for what their children are listening to. Last week America's Federal Trade Commission reported that the music industry was guilty of advertising explicit records on TV and in magazines aimed at youth and not always with a parental advisory notice.

    26/05/01 Janet Shatters First Week Sales!

    Janet's "All For You" is through the roof. Based on first-day sales, the Virgin album, which hit stores yesterday, is headed over the 500k mark, and will easily top next week's sales chart. Some retail insiders say the total could approach 600k. One-stops were not surprised, with an informal pre-release survey for HITS putting first-week sales at 493k. "Janet's a little older now and the kids may have to re-relate to her, but she still should do well," predicted Motown President/CEO Kedar Massenburg when we posed as AT&T telemarketers. "It is Janet, after all."
    And that seemed to be fans' reaction to the album, which launched a month ago with the release of the title-track single, which exploded at radio its first week and is now #1 nationally in airplay. MTV played its part in helping launch Janet's album on its "ICON" special last March 13, which honored the superstar with performances of her songs by Destiny's Child, Macy Gray, OutKast and Buckcherry, a special vocal tribute by NSYNC and a dance homage by Mya, Pink and Usher.
    This week's relase of the new Jackson album sets up a duel of the divas at the cash register next week, with Destiny's Child's Columbia effort, "Survivor" going head-to-head with the second week of "All For You."

    25/05/01 OutKast Blow Out Janet Jackson !

    It was literally a case of sorry, Ms Jackson in the US this week as rappers du jour OutKast gave Janet the thumbs down after her request for them to be the opening act on her North American tour. The pair had already agreed to be part of Moby's massive Area One summer tour, set to be the most hi-tech interactive music festival ever. The tour, featuring Moby, New Order, Paul Oakenfold, Nelly Furtado, the Orb, the Roots, OutKast, Incubus and Carl Cox kicks off in Atlanta on 11 July and finishes in Los Angeles on 5 August. Some of the proceeds of the tour go to charity, two charities benefiting being Greenpeace and LifeBeat but that will be scant consolation for Ms Jackson who now has to find another act.

    21/04/01 Review From People Magazine!

    Janet Jackson's All For You is all good

    Janet proves once again why her brothers should have made it the Jackson Six. Like the Jackson she is -- although she dropped her famous surname from her recording moniker back in 1997 -- Janet tries to be all things to all people on her ambitious seventh studio album. As with her big bro Michael, her appeal has transcended race, age, gender and tax bracket since her 1986 breakthrough Control. But never has Janet displayed such a broad command of the pop form as she does on this sweeping, near-73-minute opus.
    From the percolating hip-hop opener "You Ain't Right" to the sunny soft-rock finale "Better Days," Janet goes all over the pop planet on All for You. And although still not a powerhouse singer, she is in finest voice ever on such cuts as the retro soul-disco title tune, the ebullient house track "Come On Get Up" and the spacey, sexually explicit slow jam "Would You Mind."
    The tour de force, though, is the blistering funk workout "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)," featuring a guest vocal by Carly Simon, who reprises a bit of her 1972 hit "You're So Vain" in the chorus. Half-rapping what seems to be a searing rebuke to her estranged husband RenÚ Elizondo Jr. -- "You think you irk me and you're so right/ I'd rather keep the trash and throw you out" -- Janet hits him with her best shot.
    Bottom Line: All hail the queen of pop's royal family!

    21/04/01 Dotmusic Review!

    She's been the woman in control, the military leader of the rhythm nation, the one socially acceptable member of the Jackson clan and even, on 1997's 'The Velvet Rope', the happily married thirtysomething superstar indulging in a few mild S&M fantasies. Now on 'All For You', Janet unveils her most unnerving and plausible character thus far; the divorcee on the prowl. 'All For You' is a concept album of sorts, rooted in Jackson's traumatic separation from husband and collaborator Rene Elizondo Jr. It begins tremendously, with a bunch of party tracks illustrating a newly-free woman checking out men on the dancefloor. Soon, the action moves to the bedroom, and some amusingly explicit shagging tracks, before a virulent suite detailing what a bastard her ex is. Finally, there's a soppy phase heralding a new life and the prospects of new love.
    As a psychological study of a woman regaining control of her life, then, it's fascinating stuff: "I had a career before now, didn't I? I had a few hits before now, didn't I?" she notes in 'Truth', effectively an open letter to Elizondo. On the bizarre 'Son Of A Gun', she's much angrier: "I'm gonna make you suffer you stupid muthaf**ker," she rages, whilst Carly Simon raps incompetently and interpolates part of her old kiss-off classic 'You're So Vain' into the mix.
    The rude stuff's pretty unequivocal, too. After the wonderful Chic swish of recent hit 'All For You' and a couple more stomping 'Rhythm Nation'-style floor-fillers (she remains faithful to the still fine writing/production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis), the album degenerates into a sexfest. The come-hithering begins with the excellent 'When We Oooo' and climaxes, in a very real sense, four songs later with 'Would You Mind?' and an extravaganza of panting that recalls the hot-under-the-collar comedy of 'Je T'Aime (Moi Non Plus)'.
    At a time when scrub-trashing, no-bullshit R&B women like TLC, Destiny's Child, Kelis and Pink rule the charts, 'All For You' is, effectively, Jackson reclaiming the empowered territory she established on 'Control' all those years ago, only with a peculiarly intimate, confessional spin. Musically, she and Jam & Lewis have a knack of hardly changing their slick formula, whilst still sounding contemporary. This is a much more satisfying album than 'The Velvet Rope', even if most of the songs are overlong and a few juggle satin sheet-cliches with self-help ones to numbing effect.
    Nevertheless, 'All For You' stands as a monument to the positive effects of divorce. And it sets a standard the forthcoming, reportedly ultra-modern opus by brother Michael will have to work some to match. Now, whatever did happen to LaToya?

    [...] Elliott is managed by Mona Scott for Violator and booked by Cara Lewis of the William Morris Agency. She will tour this summer, either opening for Janet Jackson or joining Timbaland, Aaliyah, and Ginuwine on a national trek. "I'd love to do either one," says the ASCAP writer, whose songs are published through her own Mass Confusion Music and administered by Warner/Chappell. "Going out with Ginuwine and Aaliyah would be special because they're family. On the other hand, I'm a big fan of Janet. She would make me work harder. I know her show will be so hot that I'll have to stay in the dance studio for five months straight." [...]

    The Billboard Hot 100 has been dominated by males all year, but leave it to Pop Queen Janet Jackson to change that around. Jackson's latest trip to the top of the Billboard Charts is with "All For You", her 10th #1 Pop single and 15th #1 R&B single.
    Janet's "All For You" makes the expected jump to No. 1 after just five weeks on the chart, while recent Grammy winners Destiny's Child "Survivor" is full of life, leaping two positions to No. 2.
    Janet's arrival at the top is no surprise, as her single is the fastest growing track at retail in its first week on sale. The retail release also propels the song to the top of the Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart, where it shoots 9-1. Ms. Jackson's s much-anticipated Virgin album, also titled "All For You," is due April 24, which looks like it could be Jackson's 5 #1 album following her last 4 times platinum "The Velvet Rope", which has sold 8 million copies worldwide.

    05/04/01 Janet Jumps To No. 1!

    The Billboard Hot 100 has been dominated by males all year, but now two female artists are controlling the top of the chart. Janet's "All For You" makes the expected jump to No. 1 after just five weeks on the chart, while Destiny's Child "Survivor" is full of life, leaping two positions to No. 2.
    Janet's arrival at the top is no surprise, as her single is the fastest growing track at retail in its first week on sale. The retail release also propels the song to the top of the Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart, where it shoots 9-1. The artist's much-anticipated Virgin album, also titled "All For You," is due April 24.
    The release of Destiny's Child's Columbia album, of which "Survivor" is the title track, is also a few weeks away, but the group's single continues to surge in anticipation of the set's May 1 release. Besides being the fastest-growing track at radio on the Hot 100, the cut shows a minor gain over on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart, rising two slots to No. 8.

    02/04/01 "All For You" Soars to No. 1!

    NEW YORK--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--April 4, 2001--Nearly 4 weeks ago Janet Jackson's latest single "All For You" exploded onto the charts as the highest debuting non-commercially available single in the land.
    It set a new recording industry mark by receiving airplay from every Radio & Records reporting radio station in the country. So when "All For You" takes over the top spot as Billboard's new #1 Hot 100 single this week it should come as no surprise. "All For You", Jackson's first release from the forthcoming album of the same name, set to hit stores on April 24th, marks Jackson's 10th trip to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart.
    "All For You" blasted onto radio stations across America last March, when it was added to every Radio & Record reporting CHR/Pop, CHR/Rhythmic, and Urban format station in its first week, a history-making feat never before accomplished by any recording artist. The single is #1 this week and the album All For You stands in the wings waiting for its highly anticipated release. Already the album has garnered critical praise from critics and appears poised to debut high on the Billboard 200 Album Chart.
    Produced by Janet, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, All For You is Jackson's first studio recording in three years and contains fourteen full-length songs (as well as six musical interludes). Among the songs are "Come On Get Up", "Son Of A Gun", a duet with Carly Simon, and "Someone To Call My Lover." Among the sultry ballads are "When We Oooh," "Would You Mind," and "Feels So Right." Also included is the #1 single "Doesn't Really Matter," from the hit film "Nutty Professor 2."
    The return of Janet Jackson has already been heralded by MTV, which just this past March debuted "mtvICON: Janet Jackson," a show dedicated to the music and influence of the singer.

    03/04/01 Mariah Carey Flies Over To Virgin!

    NEW YORK (Variety) - Superstar R&B chanteuse Mariah Carey has signed on at Virgin Records, leaving her longtime home of Columbia Records.
    Carey is slated to release her first record on the EMI imprint -- the soundtrack for "All that Glitters," her upcoming 20th Century Fox film -- in late summer.
    Columbia Records confirmed Monday that the multiplatinum-selling artist, who has been with Columbia for more than a decade, had left the flagship imprint of Sony Music.
    Carey has recorded six full-length records, plus an EP and a Christmas album, for Columbia. Her eponymous debut LP yielded four No. 1 singles, including "Someday" and "Vision of Love," and earned a best new artist Grammy.
    The singer went on to release more than a dozen No. 1 singles -- more than any other solo female artist in rock -- and to sell a total of 140 million albums and singles worldwide. Carey's top-selling LP, 1993's "Music Box," has moved more than 24 million copies to date.
    Virgin will now be home to two fo the world's biggest-sellilng female singers -- Carey and Janet Jackson, who signed one of the richest deals in recording history when she bolted A&M for the EMI-owned imprint. Jackson's next album, "All for You," is projected to be one of the year's blockbusters upon its release April 24.
