    Last year, Janet Jackson said that producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the team behind her critical release 1986 Control, would not be working on her next album. However, the pair is all over her latest, All For You--in fact, they co-write and co-produce each of the 14 songs on the album.

The complete track listing for the album is as follows: "Intro," "You Ain't Right," "All For You," "2wayforyou (Interlude)," "Come On Get Up," "When We Oooo," "China Love," "Love Scene (Ooh Baby)," "Would You Mind," "Lame (Interlude)," "Trust A Try," "Clouds (Interlude)," "Son Of A Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)" with Carly Simon, "Truth," "Theory (Interlude)," "Someone To Call My Lover," "Feels So Right," "Doesn't Really Matter," "Better Days," and "Outro."

    16/03/01 MuchMusic Article!

    "Sheís a popular icon who has placed her own undeniable imprint upon the musical landscape of the past two decades. Her music is timeless, her tours unforgettable and nearly 50 million records sold across the world firmly establish her as one of the true superstar elite. Janet Jackson is back and ready to add yet another chapter to a career that has given true meaning to the word superstar.
    Hereís the sequence that is sure to make your mouth water. A brand new single, "All For You" in March. A brand new album, the follow-up to 1997ís multi-platinum selling The Velvet Rope, entitled, All For You. As well as the start of a world tour in July, which will have the same spectacular production values of her Rhythm Nation debut tour, which set the arena tour benchmark back in 1990.
    April 23/24 sees the worldwide release of Janetís new album All For You, a tip of the hat to timeless soul and dance grooves and a glorious celebration of her roots. The set was recorded at Flyte Tyme Studios in Minneapolis, with co-production by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, her longtime songwriting and studio collaborators, with additional production by Rockwilder. The albumís melodic, upbeat and fresh sound is echoed by the title track, due as a single in March.
    Concurrent with her new music, Janet will be honored at the inaugural mtvICON celebration on March 13th in recognition of her place as one of the most influential and beloved tastemakers in contemporary pop and R&B. The show will eloquently demonstrate the impact that Janet has had, not only on her worldwide audience, but also on a generation of performers who will pay tribute by covering her songs. They include Destinyís Child, Macy Gray, Outkast and ĎN Sync. Janet herself is also slated to perform the shows finale.
    The new single, album and tour follow Janetís worldwide smash last summer with "Doesnít Really Matter" from the soundtrack of the "Nutty Professor 2", in which she starred alongside Eddie Murphy. The film took in more then $175 million at the worldwide box office. The song was an instant global hit, spending 3 weeks at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 Chart in August and September to take her total of U.S. chart-toppers to nine, a run stretching back to "When I Think Of You" in 1986.
    "Doesnít Really Matter" is included on All For You, along with music that overflows with pure Janet joie de vivre that include "Someone To Call My Lover", "New Beginning", "Come On Get Up", "Trust A Try" and the tantalizing "When We Ooo".
    Itís the latest landmark in an eclectic and audacious career that has touched audiences in pop, rock, r&b and hip-hop without ever compromising.
    Then, in the summer, Janet launches the long-anticipated sequel to the "Velvet Rope" tour, which packed arenas and knocked out audiences worldwide. That success pushed her album sales total to nearly 50 million, but itís never been just about the numbers for Janet Damita Jo Jackson, born May 16, 1966 in the Jackson family hometown of Gary, Indiana. "My parents taught us that you never give up," she says, and itís been a personal coda since she made her stage debut at seven.
    Janet went on to star in the CBS-TV sitcom "Good Times", and more high-profile television work soon followed in "Different Strokes" and "Fame". There were two teenage albums, a self-titled 1982 set and Dream Street two years later, but it was 1986ís Control that catapulted into the limelight and began her rise to stardom. Traveling from her Los Angeles home to Minneapolis, she began the association with Jam and Lewis, found herself as a songwriter and reinvented herself as a person.
    Control exploded, showcasing Janetís supple voice, warm humor and feisty attitude in a series of indelible hit singles and innovative videos shaped by Janet herself. Control was something that Janet extended to her entire life, becoming an astute businesswoman in the process. She makes the final decision regarding every aspect of her multi-faceted career.
    1989 brought the watershed album Rhythm Nation 1814, a record "reflecting real life and my real concerns," as she put it, wrapped up in a high-voltage funk-dance sound. It spent 4 weeks at #1 in America and, a few months later led to the Rhythm Nation World Tour 1990, which became the most successful debut tour in history, seen by more then two million fans.
    "Rhythm Nation contained my views about what was going on in the world and the problems we have trying to educate kids," she says. "The idea was to give them some hope." Janet remains a passionate humanitarian and spokeswoman on childrenís, civil and human rights issues, as well as education and AIDS research. Indeed last year, she received the Commitment To Life Award from the AIDS Project Los Angeles.
    In 1991, in her mid 20ís, Janet was given a new recording contract with Virgin Records, and soon thereafter rekindled her acting career with a starring role in the compelling 1993 release "Poetic Justice" directed by John Singleton. Then came janet. Overflowing with infectious grooves such as "Thatís The Way Love Goes" (#1 for eight weeks in the U.S.), "If", "Again" and the sultry ballad "Any Time Any Place", which logged ten weeks atop Billboardís R&B Chart. The album became Janetís third in succession to exceed 5 million in U.S. sales alone.
    In 1995, Jane joined her brother Michael for a massive hit single "Scream", featuring a stunning glam sci-fi video clip. The following year brought Janetís first retrospective, Janet Jackson 1986-1996 Design Of A Decade. It offered "Runaway", the 16th if her 21 gold certified singles and another memorable video in which she danced her way around the globe. In 1997, The Velvet Rope took her audience closer to Janet then ever before, as she bared her soul on the most intimate record of her career.
    In 2001, another chapter will be written and itís sure to be fueled by the same ingredients that have sustained Janet throughout her career Ė her undeniable passion, her determination and damn good music. "

    09/03/01 Janet Jackson Single Breaks Radio, Chart Records!

    Her brother may have appointed himself King of Pop, but Janet Jackson earned her crown as Queen of Radio this week. The title track from the R&B superstar's upcoming seventh album, All for You, made radio and chart history when it was added to every pop, rhythmic and urban radio station that reports to the national trade magazine Radio & Records. No other song has conquered all reporting stations in its first week at radio, let alone mastered three formats in one week, R&R's Kevin McCabe said. "All for You" also debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at #14, the highest debut ever for a single that wasn't commercially available. Jackson's seventh album is due April 24. Co-producer Jimmy Jam said last month that the dance number is indicative of the upbeat, carefree vibe of the disc, which follows up 1997's The Velvet Rope. The video for "All for You" premieres Friday (March 9) on "Total Request Live." Jackson is also the subject of the inaugural "mtvICON," a special honoring artists who've influenced music videos and who've had a significant impact on fans and other artists. "mtvICON: Janet Jackson" will air on Tuesday.

    09/03/01 Pick Up The New Billboard!

    In addition to the full page for "All For You" in in this weeks Billboard, dated March 10, 2001, there is also a review.

    "Calling all radio formats! The title track from Janet Jackson's forthcoming All For you is a verible vitamin shot in the arm for the airwaves. As playful and joyous as the best from Jackson's deep uptempo catalog, "All For You" audaciously ignoes top 40's current trend toward strict R&B inflection; this is mainstream party pop at its best. The groove, which borrows from Change's disco-era hit "The Glow of Love," is at the helm here, with a beat that jingles like a pocketful of loose change, while Jackson's shiny vocal features puffy layers of her signature harmonies. It's hard to know exactly what went on in the studio with longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, but the sun just shines on Jackson's performance, which feels at once loose and inspired. This offers the promise of good days ahead for a career that has never stalled, but at times has felt more deliberate than others. Expect instantaneous across-the-board act-ion on this from adult, rhythmic, and mainstream top 40s, as well as AC and R&B. It's going to be a rhythm nation this spring, indeed. Quite likely another No.1 for Janet."

    09/03/01 Tidbit From Source!

    "Chad and Pharrell's differences have made them especially effective at culling the best work from the artists they produce. Though it would seem that a veteran like Janet Jackson would come into the studio with an ego and a set plan, Pharrell was impressed by her youthful demeanor and openness to try new things. Pharrell promises that Janet's new album will be dope, but he doesn't want to spoil the surprise. "Janet is very, very receptive and very smart," he says. "I don't like to talk about that too much because I want to keep everything a mystery, so when that @#%$ hits the radio, it's bonkers. Sometimes the veiling adds to the impact."

    08/03/01 New Billboard Article!

    Joe's "Stutter" featuring Mystikal once again holds off Crazy Town's "Butterfly" to earn a fourth week at No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100. Joe can't rest easy, as his single should face a challenge in coming weeks from Janet's "All For You," which bolts straight to No. 14 to become the highest debut of any title in more than two years. The grip of "Stutter" is also slipping in pure R&B markets, as the single falls to No. 3 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.

    This week's only movement in the top-10 of the Hot 100 is spurred by 112's "It's Over Now," which is the fastest-growing track at retail. The hip-hop-influenced R&B quartet reaches No. 1 over on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, as "It's Over Now" skips 3-1 on that tally. The Hot 100's greatest gainer at radio this week is Nelly's "Ride With Me" featuring City Spud, which shoots 43-32. Beyond Janet, the strongest debut is Destiny's Child "Survivor," which safely lands at No. 43 several months ahead of the group's similarly titled Columbia album.

    08/03/01 Janet In The Sun!

    Next to the new cover, Sunday's issue of The Sun wrote: "HERE'S Janet Jackson looking bedder than ever on the cover of her new single. "

    Her brother Michael may have broken his foot but his sister is clearly all in one piece, as my exclusive snap shows. The song - All For You, from Janet's unnamed new album out on April 24 - features samples from Change's huge disco hit The Glow of Love and is a funky little number. But I reckon it's worth buying for the cover alone...

    08/03/01 Janet In The Daily Star!

    JANET JACKSON plans to be even raunchier than Britney Spears in her new video. Sexy brunette Janet plans to raise the gasp factor even further than 19-year- old Britney's latest raunchy promo. The singer, from the most famous family in pop, releases her new single, All For You, on April 9. The cover of the CD features a naked Janet lying on a bed - with only a white duvet protecting her modesty. And the video is going to be every bit as sexy, sources close to Janet have revealed. The red-hot footage is being shot in America's sweltering Arizona desert later this month. But there will be a tight ring of security around the X-rated action - ensuring that no lusty fans try to sneak a peek at Janet. One source raved: "Forget Britney's video, Janet's is going to be even hotter. "
