Janet Jackson’s Latest “No Sleep” Is An Anthem For The Grown And Sexy

Here is Janet Jackson’s single off her forthcoming album, which is due sometime in the fall. Great news: “No Sleep” is wonderful. Here is the Janet of yore, breathing silk over a Jimmy Jam and  Terry Lewis track, cooing sweet nothings, the perfect low-key makeout jam for hazy summer nights. It’s not too slow, but not too fast either — the perfect tempo for a light two-step, like a slowed-down cousin to Zhané’s classic, “Groove Thang.” Unlike other pop stars — ahem, Madonna — who keeping pushing buttons in a desperate attempt to maintain relevancy, Janet sticks to what she knows best — smooth, airy vocals intimating sexier times between the sheets. Listen to it. Did you hear she’s going on tour? Listen to it again. Get out your credit card. You won’t want to miss it. [Spin]
