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

Friday morning and all my work is done
I've packed my bags I'm on the run
I got a feeling that I'm gonna have
Some fun in the sun with my friends
And he's got me goin'


(chorus):


Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Sorry I can't sorry I can't go now


Friday noon and my boss is on the phone
He's telling me that I can't leave home
An extra hand at work is what he called for
He said
We need you here
To my friends I'm goin'


(chorus):


Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
I don't know why
My job has called me in
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
I don't know why
My job has called me...


It makes no diff'rence if you're off work or not
You dream your weekend
Hand on the doorknob
Out with your friends
Hey, fun in the sun now
That's when the phone rings


Friday evening and I'm all alone at home
I know my friends are having fun
I'll plan my weekend, damn it
Leave the machine on
Next time he calls he'll hear my voice sayin' loud and clear


(chorus):


Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
I'm out having fun in the sun with my friends
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
Whoops now
Sorry I can't go
I'm out having fun in the sun with my friends


SONGTEKST WHATILL I DO

What'll I do for satisfaction
Honey who'll take care of me now
If you leave I can't make it
Darlin' please don't you put me down

'Cause what'll I do for satisfaction
If you take away your heart
What'll I do for satisfaction
When that funny funny feelin's gone
Oh what'll I do

I can't take no more of missin' you
I don't know just what I'm a gonna do
How I can't love another
You don't know just what you mean to me

What'll I do for satisfaction
If you take away your heart
What'll I do for satisfaction
When my nights start to gettin' long

Boy I love you
Wanna hold you
You're love's strong that's no lie
And I hate, I hate to put to down
But if you, if you leave me now
You won't want, want me hangin' around

'Cause what'll I do for satisfaction
If you take away, away your heart
What'll I do for satisfaction
When that funny feelin's gone
Oh I need you now
