Earlier today, I posted a little commentary and two videos of Britney Spears latest song.
Apparently a lot of you out there are music fans. I've gotten tons of requests to post Janet Jackson's new music video, "Feedback," from her upcoming "Discipline" CD. The song has received critical acclaim and the video I'm sure will receive that as well. I haven't seen anything like it, and there's a little tribute to her brothers' pyrotechnical "Victory Tour" in there.
The video has Janet dancing in space and on planets. Gotta admit it's kind of catchy.
The video looks expensive and is different than anything in current rotation on VH-1, BET or MTV, and I'd say the single is one of the better songs to come out in the past 12 months. Janet's music, of course, hasn't been much of an issue, since she got away from her "Dream Street" sound of the early '80s and released "Control."
Each of her albums after that then have been solid.
Since the infamous Super Bowl incident, Janet has struggled to get heard the same way she used to. Whether or not "Feedback" will get her into rotation on MTV or heavy play on major radio airwaves is still a question.
The quality of this single and the wonderment of this video -- which got the internet abuzz the way Michael Jackson videos that postponed prime-time programming got folks talking in the late '80s -- is certainly not.
So here you go:
