Saturday Slingback: #AllForYou20-#JanetJackson ‘All For You’ [LIVE from Hawaii]

On this day we are celebrating 20 years of Janet Jackson’s now ICONIC ‘All For You’ album!

All for You is the seventh studio album by American singer Janet Jackson. It was released on April 16, 2001, by Virgin Records. The album’s development and theme were rooted in Jackson’s separation from husband René Elizondo, Jr. as she was getting to know what dating is like for the first time. Unlike The Velvet Rope, which saw Jackson tackling darker issues such as domestic violence and depressionAll for You showcased a mix of upbeat dance-pop and slow R&B sounds, incorporating rockdisco, and funk, as well as soft rock and Oriental music. Its lyrics focus on passion, romance, and intercourse, also discussing themes of betrayal and deceit. The explicit language and sexual content of several songs drew media controversy, causing the album to be banned in several countries.

Lead single “All for You” was one of Jackson’s most successful singles and broke multiple airplay records. In the US, it was the biggest hit of the year, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks and became a top ten hit on the majority of singles charts worldwide.

WAKE UP JAM: #Beyonce ‘Run The World (Girls)’ [vid]

beyonce--runtheworld-thegamuttWAKE IT UP!!
10 years ago on August 21 2011, Beyonce DROPPED ‘Run The World’!
It was written by Terius “The-Dream” Nash and Beyoncé, while heavily sampling “Pon de Floor” by Major Lazer written by Nick “Afrojack” van de Wall, Wesley “Diplo” Pentz, David “Switch” Taylor and Adidja “Vybz Kartel” Palmer.  Production was handled by Switch, The-Dream, Beyoncé, and Shea Taylor.

The song’s development was motivated by Beyoncé wanting to do something different: a mixture of different cultures and eras, a new sound, and a message which would give women strength. An unedited demo of the song, then thought to be titled “Girls (Who Run the World)”, was leaked on the internet on April 18, 2011. “Run the World” premiered on US radio on April 21, 2011, and was digitally released the same day.
The song’s accompanying music video was directed by Francis Lawrence and was filmed in California over a three-day span. The video won Best Choreography at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards and Best Dance Performance at the 2011 Soul Train Music Awards.
