It’s Janet Jackson’s 47th(?!) birthday today so here’s a video megamix of her 1993 album janet. for our Throwback Thursday.
Can someone explain to us how Janet Jackson is 47 years old? The American pop icon may or may not be sipping from a secret fountain of youth but regardless, she celebrates her birthday today and in conjunction with Throwback Thursday, we bring you a video megamix of her fifth studio album, janet. Rhythm Nation had already continued the momentum of her breakthrough album Control so by 1993, it was time for a rebirth and it came with a raunchier Janet Jackson. Tracks like If, That’s The Way Love Goes and Any Time, Any Place perpetuate the sexual nature of the album, but with a slant towards freedom in ones sexuality. In the megamix, you get to see some tour footage and rehearsals blended in with her music videos from the album to cap off a 90s audiovisual extravaganza.
Stream it below.
EDIT: The original video was taken down so enjoy this one instead!
