Okay this is awesome! Firstly, it sounds like Janet is writing lyrics again and she's not 'whispering' her vocals as people have been bitching about for so long.

yes her rollout plan has been brilliant so far. im hoping this snippit is a full song.

If you were on her team, when would you recommend dropping "No Sleeep" online and radio?

you know what, im kinda on the fence with the single thing. part of me want her to release the album with no single. i guess if they are gonna drop a single it has to at least come out by the end of this month, the tour is fast approaching, i think opening date is august 31.one thing i would do is continue to use social media, drop the single on twitter and let the fan frenzy make radio play it. the news outlets pick up on everything she tweets, ive seen this song snippit reported all over already.she is getting alot of free pub for this project while remaining pretty much in hiding.janet was so far behind when it came to using social media but she/and her team seem to have figured it out and is using it better than ive seen it done so far.

i have a question about the album pre-order if anybody can answer for me. so when you pre-order from amazon or itunes you are not paying until the album comes out, but in this case fans are actually buying the album, so will these sales count towards her first week sales or will billboard have some rule disqualifying it?

The CDs or LPs are pre-ordered from her website janetjackson.com, and I don't think the time your card is charged changes the definition of a pre-order sale. They should be counted towards first week sales.

Billboard counts all pre-prders as a first day sales.

Looks like she getting back down to her "fighting weight" again. She must know exactly how many weeks or months she needs to slim down in time for promoting a project. I swear not long ago, her face looked more full. Her notorious abs would make headlines if put on display.

Are you afraid that the single wouldn't be a hit? Speaking of singles: What type of single would you want to release? In spite of Rhythm Nation being received as a social conscious record, it's first single was "Miss You Much". It wasn't until "Rhythm Nation" was released that the album theme was reflected in a single.

I would love to see her abs again!! But somehow I don't believe we will get to see them this time around. Janet is known for being heavy one moment and then being fit the next. I'm also curious about what her costumes this era will look like.

Really? Why? Yeah, she probably have it down to a science by now, she's only been doing it now since the "Love Will Never Do Without You" days.

nope its actually the opposite. im kinda past the 'hit single' thing, i mean i wouldnt be mad if janet got a hit single but i want a great album. what i dont want is her dropping a bunch of singles hoping one will become a hit. if there is a single i want something smooth mid-tempo and mature. according to entertainment tonight the album theme is 'the human spirit,her marriage, her family, her fans, her mistakes and the unbreakable bond that connects these things for her'. im here for this,im getting more of a velvet rope vibe than rhythm nation.

I guess I'm greedy. I'd like to see both a hit single that resonates with the masses and a successful album following that single.

-

I too hope there isn't the see what sticks approach to this. Janet haven't really done much of that as I recall though. But that was also a different era too. Nowadays, artists pull songs all the time in the name of "testing their market" or "it was just a buzz single."

What ET report are you referring to?

As a fairweather fan I would be so impressed with Janet Jackson if she snubbed radio airplay goals for this project. That would be a revolution.

That is what I am hoping too.

I hope she snubs BET, MTV, and the Grammys as well. Just promote her album herself and maybe go on X Factor ( or a similiar type of show). After the way the radio and the industry has treated her over the years, I think she should pay all of them dust and just promote herself. It will obviously be a lot of work but intergrity and dignity is worth more than anything.

I don't know why her having a hit in 2015 is even in the question. It's not outside the realm of possibility but it isn't something to hold breath for.

i agree, i wouldnt even try to cater to them. she wont have pressure from a record label so she can do what she want. its interesting that somebody on another forum said they played that little snippit she did for the fans on the radio, i bet if she snubbed them they would play her music.

I am not even thinking about that. I am more so interested in the quality she has to offer this go round with her album as a whole and the creativity of her tour lay out. I REALLY wish she would fire Gil. mad I think he is awful. Her choregraphy has been mediocre since he has been her main choregrapher. Hopefully, she at least incorporates some other choregraphers.

I was vibing to the Kaytranada remix of Whats It Gonna Be the other day, it would be so cool if she gave him a call he seems a talented fan. I love his If remix but his Jill Scott versions are my favorite. He adds texture to the vocals and goes with the lyrics direction.

So you think it won't be close to big enough to justify the hype?

LOL I meant commercially. But I think Janet will pull through for some reason. As long as it's not a bloated album she'll do good. But there is always that danger.
