Janet Jackson’s first album in over seven years is finally here!
Unbreakable finds Janet back with longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis for what Vulture describes as ‘Her Best Album in 15 Years.‘
It’s easily her best album since All for You — and probably the best album by a veteran pop star this year. Unbreakable (Janet’s reunion with longtime producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis) avoids both the radio-hungry trend-pandering of Madonna’s Rebel Heart and the noodly self-indulgences of the most recent Prince albums in favor of a sound that’s both personal and palatable. Unbreakable is mature but fleet-footed, somehow as poignant as it is fun. Unbreakable explores Janet’s depths and despair, but it doesn’t stay down for long. Ballads about alienation and pain explode into confetti-flecked choruses of triumph.
We’ve been listening to Unbreakable over here on rotation, and an obvious stand out is the Dem Jointz-produced “Dammn Baby.” While the entire album is classic Janet, “Dammn Baby” is the by far the most current sounding of the bunch.
Listen to “Dammn Baby” below and when you’re done, check out the rest of the album via Spotify.
