Janet unveils new socially conscious song “Shoulda Known Better”


Perhaps the highlight of last night’s first show of the Unbreakable World Tour was Janet unveiling her new socially conscious song Shoulda Known Better with simple and striking choreography and imagery.

A modern day Rhythm Nation, the track examines the state of the world today with lyrics such as “We won’t accept excuses. We don’t need no abuses. Just can’t feel casual about casualties”.

The song repeatedly asks “Why” and hopes that the world can be made “a better place”.

The song performance was accompanied by striking imagery of those who have fallen on hard times.
