Will Janet Jackson's "Feedback" fuel a comeback?

Jj_l Could Janet Jackson have the comeback story of 2008? She certainly has my vote based on her new single, "Feedback," which was released to radio last week. Breathy with a propulsive beat, it’s exactly how I like my Jsquared. I only hope the marketing of this album involves her keepin’ her clothes on. We get it Janet: You’re proud of your body. Your weight fluctuates. But, you’re like 40 now and it’s time to cover up. I’m not talking muumuus; just a little less bust, and a little more bustin’ a move would be nice. What think you, PopWatchers? Listen to the embedded clip, after the jump, and then give your feedback about "Feedback."

    Not her greatest song, but damn catchy. She so deserves to go back on top. but I have to agree, with some clothes on!! !!Take a look at the new promo picture, perfect!!!

  • Sally

    The problem w/ JJ is that she sounds like Britney with all the voice filtering.

  • Sally

    Showing some skin is her MO and there’s nothing wrong with it, but at 40 shouldn’t she be in a different arena — like acting? or producing? or even a charitable give-back?
    The production is what gives that tune its bounce, because let’s face it any light weight singer can do what she does.

    Not the best, but even sub-par Janet is better than Britney

    Not the best Janet track, but light-years better than her previous ones. I love Janet as much as the next guy, but I do think the overt sexuality is getting a little old. Also, I would love a little more social commentary from her which we haven’t seen since the “Rhythm Nation” years. She is a decent pop-song writer so a little more depth would be appreciated.

    Love the song (although I’m confused as to how, exactly, Janet has “Asian persuasion.”) Here’s to hoping that Janet doesn’t muddle the rest of “Discipline” down with the warmed-over, easy listening/pillow-talk inertia that plagued “20 Y.O.” and “Damita Jo.” If we can’t have the sheer brilliance and depth of “The Velvet Rope” or genre-defining R&B zeniths like “janet.,” “Rhythm Nation” or “Control,” I’ll take the pure pop (and, radio-friendliness) of “All For You” any day.

    Fantastic… Janet’s best single since All For You, I think. Deserves to do amazingly well.

    Finally! A Janet Jackson song with a catchy tune! It actually sounds like a song instead of a breathy voice set to a electronic beat which dominated her last 3 albums. I miss the pop/dance perfection she created with Control, Rhythm Nation and janet. Hopefully, the disappointing sales of everything after that has finally awaken her to the fact the her fans want to hear her voice to songs that will stick in their head and they can dance or sing to.

    sweet! sooo much better than anything I’ve heard from her in a long time.

  • nunya

    THIS SONG IS HOT!! FORGET THAT HAS-BEEN WHO CONSTANTLY LEAVES THE HOUSE W/O UNDERWEAR, JANET OWNS HOT DANCE POP! COMEBACK 2008!!

  • sarah

    I love it almost as much as this kid!

  • gtownguy

    This is banging. I found it online and downloaded it just to hear it in my car and DAMN! (And I never download-Really!) This is pretty close to what I’ve been waiting for from Janet. She finally has people around her talking some sense to her after the last 2 fiascos (JD anyone)! I love me some breasteses but it’s time for Janet to be more subtle, mysterious even, with her body. Tease me. I todays instant video age, we’ve seen and heard it all. Janet should go in the opposite direction. Love the new promo photo and art work. Please let this be the comeback we are praying for so she can tour again. “Feedback” is a winner!!!!!!

  • Sally in Chicago

    Love the beat, love the drums….but it almost sounds like a girl group singing and not one person…but otherwise, good dance beat.

  • Roman

    The song is fierce! Much better than any of her recent efforts, and it deserves to be a big hit. Ditto to Sally in Chicago about the girl group; I thought the exact same thing the first time I heard it too.
