Janet Jackson Does Janet Jackson With "Dammn Baby" Visuals

Janet Jackson is supposedly now with child, but that didn't stop her rhythmic self delivering in the visuals for latest single Dammn Baby.

Like many of her videos in recent years, this one is shot entirely in black and white- making it all classy and shiz. It's still classic Janet, choreography-wise, but there are modern flourishes mixed in. She ain't Hitting the Quan or Milly Rocking- thank god- but there's enough in there to keep it feeling fresh, without obviously pandering to the new gen.

Song's great too. :D

[Music Video] Janet Jackson - "No Sleeep"

Maybe a little late to the party, the video for Janet Jackson's No Sleeep has hit YouTube.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the muted visuals are simple. However they're kept from being snooze-inducing with some interesting computer trickery and a feature in the form of J.Cole. It's in no way as spicy a video as we'd expect from a Janet slow jam, but it's effortlessly seductive nonetheless.

Welcome back, Ms. Jackson!

[Vocal Profile] Janet Jackson

Vocal Type: Light-Lyric Soprano
Whistle Register:No
Vocal Range: C3-D6 (3 Octaves 1 Note )
Vocal Pluses: Janet Jackson is a Diva who knows her instrument, working its strengths and weaknesses to best effect. The voice has an overarching sweet and warm timbre that carries throughout the range, which works beautifully to create layered harmonies [Discipline/ What's It Gonna Be].

The lower-range isn't often used by Janet, being mostly weaved into harmonies[Take Care]. When she does showcase it, it sounds to be comfortable, dark and surprisingly solid [Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)].

The mid-range is where Janet's voice begins to shine, and is where she finds herself most comfortable. Here Janet shows her versatility, being able to play with texture and weight to create contrasting tones. Most often used is a soft, breathy and warm colouring [Rock With You], but she she can also solidify the sound, adding attitude and character to her delivery [Black Cat]. Both styles can be heard used brilliantly in tandem in domestic abuse song What About.
