Some artists defy not only the passages of time, but the need to stay within one genre. Janet Jackson is one such artist.
An R&B, dance, and pop legend, Jackson needs no assists, but one would assume she appreciates the creativity behind tweaking a track to make it your own. Here’s a list of some of the best Janet Jackson songs remixed.
Janet Jackson – “If” (Kaytranada)
Between the added beat stutters and amplified bass, this rework of Janet Jackson’s song “If” is a slower jam for sure, but a jam nonetheless.
Janet Jackson – “Go Deep” (Tchami Remix)
From the beginning’s distorted vocals to the keys introduced at the minute mark, this “Go Deep” remix would get anyone hype.
Janet Jackson – “No Sleeep” (PKCZ Remix)
“No Sleeep” may be a relatively newer Janet Jackson song, but it’s easily just as good as her earlier works. Now with a remix, from the get-go this bumping track is begging you to get on your feet.
Off her 2009 album 20 Y.O. this arrangement’s quickened tempo and beat transition at the 2:30 mark take it to the next level.
Janet Jackson – “Alright” (Shep Pettibone Remix)
This re-imagining of Janet Jackson’s song is actually pretty close to the original — which is already an upbeat number — but gets enhanced by an added backing beat.
