Overview

Even without her Super Bowl 2004 "wardrobe malfunction" (a.k.a. Boobygate), Janet Jackson has proven to be one of pop music's most titillating performers -- from her coming-of-age breakout, Control, to 2001's oversexed All for You. And her eighth studio album, Damita Jo -- Jackson's middle name -- follows in the same libido-driven tradition. As the hip-hop-propelled title track surmises, Ms. Jackson is "sexy, quiet, shy, but down for a good time," and all those moods are reflected here. The disc captures Janet in love (the melodic "Spending Time with You"), in lust (the self-explanatory "Moist"), and enjoying leisure time at the club (the frenetic, Britney Spears–reminiscent "All Nite (Don't Stop)." Although many of the 37-year-old singer's graying fans might be longing for more substantive revelations from the diva than a sneak peak at her ample bosom, diehard fans won't be disappointed as Jackson moans, purrs, and sings barely above a seductive whisper on the album's 22 polished tracks. What the album lacks in hearty lyrical content, her signature production duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis compensate for with a few age-appropriate tunes, including "R&B Junkie," which picks up where All for You's eponymous, Luther Vandross–sampled single left off by borrowing the beat of another old-school R&B jam, this time Evelyn Champagne King's disco classic "I'm in Love." To spice things up, hot producer-rapper Kanye West adds a welcome dose of new-school flavor with the Jay-Z–assisted "Strawberry Bounce" and the breezy "My Baby," Jackson's valentine to her fiancé, pint-sized producer Jermaine Dupri. With Damita Jo, Janet gives fans a glimpse into her everyday life, but her challenge for the next album is to reveal more and show less.
