Janet Jackson begint net als broer Michael al op jonge leeftijd met zangen en in 1979 is ze te horen op Michael's solo album Off The Wall en 3 jaar later ook op Thriller. Solo breekt ze op 20-jarige leeftijd door met het album Control. Veel hits komen van dat album waaronder Nasty, Let's Wait Awhile, Control, When I Think Of You en What Have You Done For Me Lately. Die laatste bereikt de eerste plaats in de Nederlandse Top 40. In 1989 verschijnt Rhythm Nation 1814. Ook dat album levert weer veel hits op waaronder het titelnummer, Escapade, Love Will Never Do Without You en Black Cat. In 1993 verschijnt het album Janet en scoort ze een enorme hit met That's The Way Love Goes wat in de Top 40 tot nummer 5 reikt. Daarna is het een poos stil en verschijnt er in 1995 alleen een verzamelaar. In 1997 komt ze sterk terug met The Velvet Rope. Veel hits en één daarvan Together Again wordt Janet's eerste nummer 1-hit. In 2004 is ze in opspraak als één van haar tepels te zien is nadat zanger Justin Timberlake een topje afrukt niet wetend dat daar niks onder zit. Het schandaal krijgt al snel een naam "Nipplegate".

Inmiddels is ze moeder, de 50 gepasseerd en maakt ze nog steeds platen. In augustus maakt ze met reggaeton-koning Daddy Yankee de single Made For Now.


Songtekst

[Spoken intro:]
What's up girl?
He stood me up again
Again?
Mmhmm
Well what's up with this guy?
Do you really like him that much?
Yes honey, I love him, he is fine,
he does a lot of nice things for me I know he used to do nice stuff for you,
but what has he done for you lately?

Used to be a time when you would pamper me
Used to brag about it all the time
Your friends seem to think that you're so peachy keen
But my friends say neglect is on your mind
Who's right?

What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah

Used to go to dinner almost every night
Dancin' 'til I thought I'd lose my breath
Ahh
Now it seems your dancing feet are always on my couch
Good thing I cook or else we'd starve to death
Ain't that a shame?

What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah

I never ask for more than I deserve
You know it's the truth
You seem to think you're God's gift to this earth
I'm tellin' you, no way

You ought to be thankful for the little things,
but little things are all you seem to give
You're always putting off what we can do today
Soap opera says, you've got one life to live
Who's right, who's wrong?

What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah

Get with it
Uh, let me know, and from the front
Let me know, and let me know from the
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah (yeah ha)
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah (yeah)
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah (yeah)

(No oh oh, no oh, yeah, mmmhmm
Da di da di, da di da da
Da
Mmmhmm
Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah ha ha, hey
Mmmhmm, yeah ha ha)

What have you done for me lately? (lately)
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
(Uh, uh, uh, da di di da, di da di da, a di do da da, yeah)
What have you done for me lately?
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
What have you done for me lately? (lately)

This is wild, I swear
