Janet’s European vibe

So a little thought occurred to me yesterday as I was listening to the Damita Jo album. Some of my favourite Janet tracks of recent years are European produced or written. Producers like Stargate and writers like Cathy Dennis have given Janet some of her best tracks in my opinion.

Now, does that mean that because I’m British I affiliate more with such songs? Or does it just mean that the songs are actually bloody good and have an international reach?

For those of you that aren’t sure which tracks I’m talking about, they include: 2nite, Island Life, All Nite (Don’t Stop) and Slolove.

In fact, I’d be bold enough to say that I think Janet should work with Stargate on a whole album of up-tempo stuff – because (in my opinion again!) that’s the best material she produces! But maybe that’s just because I’m a British/European music lover.

I’d welcome your thoughts – especially Transatlantic ones.

Yes I agree those track you listed are most definately the best from those albums. And it would be hot if JANET worked with STARGATE AND THE NEPTUNES BOTH on an entire album or atleast most of it.

I think it just comes down to exceptional writers and Cathy Dennis is one. I don’t think it has to do with them being from a specific place – it’s all about talent. And Slolove is SO GOOD!

I completely agree with you. Those songs sound distinctively different from the other songs on her recent albums. I actually would’ve thought that “rock with u” would be in that list, but that of course is by J.D.
