Janet Jackson Enters The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame
Janet Jackson proves that you can't mess with a legend. The singer is the newest inductee in The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
Although this win might not be a surprise, it's been a while since we heard from the R&B queen. But despite the seven-year break between her last album, 2008's Discipline, and her new single, "No Sleeep," it seems that fans' love for Janet has never wavered.
"No Sleeep" has a slow, sultry groove reminiscent of the material on her 1997 album, Velvet Rope. On the track, Janet details how she’ll have sleepless nights with her man because their time in each other’s presence is pretty few and far between. This is clearly a great song for anyone in a long distance relationship.
“Forty-eight hours in love / It ought to be a weekend marathon / So you better get ready, my king / Cause I’ma be the queen of insomnia / Stay wide awake / For every moment we spend together / ‘Cause every second you’re awake / Feels like forever,” the pop star sings on the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-produced track.
Janet's road to the Hall of Fame seemed to be a quick one as she dominated the polls and never received less than 86 percent of the fan vote. First, she knocked T-Pain's "Make That S--- Work" off its pedestal followed by OMI's "Cheerleader," Miguel's "NWA" and Majid Jordan's "My Love."
Jackson joins Rawyals, the Weeknd, Fetty Wap, Chris Brown, Tinashe, Michael Jackson, Trey Songz, Lil Durk, T-Pain and the most recent inductee, Kid Cudi, in The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
