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

Back on the road again
Feeling kinda lonely
And looking for the right guy
To be mine

Friends say I'm crazy 'cause
Easily I fall in love
You gotta do it different, J
This time

Maybe we'll meet at a bar
He'll drive a funky car
Maybe we'll meet at a club
In fall so deeply in love
He'll tell me I'm the one
And we'll have so much fun
I'll be the girl of his dreams maybe

Alright maybe gonna find him today
I gotta get someone to call my lover
Yeah baby come on
Alright baby come in
Pass my way
I gotta get someone to call me love
Yeah baby come on

I E YI
I E YI
I E YI
I E YI

I spoil them when I'm in love
Given them what they dream of
Sometimes it's not a good thing
But I'm blind

I love hard with everything
Giving my all
More than they
I'll take my friend's advice this time
I'll do it differently

Maybe we'll meet at a bar
He'll drive a funky car
Maybe we'll meet at a club
In fall so deeply in love
He'll tell me I'm the one
And we'll have so much fun
I'll be the girl of his dreams maybe

Alright maybe gonna find him today
I gotta get someone to call my lover
Yeah baby come on
Alright baby come in
Pass my way
I gotta get someone to call me love
Yeah baby come on

I E YI
I E YI
I E YI
I E YI

My, my
Looking for a guy, guy
I don't want him too shy
But he's gotta have the qualities
That I like in a man
Strong, smart, affectionate
He's gotta be all for me
And I'll be too
You see happily

Maybe we'll meet at a bar
He'll drive a funky car
Maybe we'll meet at a club
In fall so deeply in love
He'll tell me I'm the one
And we'll have so much fun
I'll be the girl of his dreams maybe

Alright maybe gonna find him today (2*)
I gotta get someone to call my lover
Yeah baby come on
Alright baby come in
Pass my way
I gotta get someone to call my lover
Yeah baby come on

I E YI
I E YI

Maybe we'll meet in a bar
He'll drive a funky car
Maybe we'll meet in a club
In fall so deeply in love
He'll tell me I'm the one
I'll be the girl of his dreams maybe

Alright maybe gonna find him today
I gotta get someone to call my lover
Yeah baby come on
Alright baby come in
Pass my way
I gotta get someone to call my lover
Yeah baby come on
