Single Review: Janet Jackson – Dammn Baby
Gregory Robinson gives his verdict on Dammn Baby, the latest single from Janet Jackson.
The track is the third single taken from Janet’s eleventh studio album Unbreakable, and like many of Janet’s career highlights, is produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. ‘Dammn Baby’ combines the best elements of Janet’s musical roots; heavy basslines, light synths and intricate samples while also fusing futuristic electro and contemporary trap elements. Fans will also note that the song features a sample from Janet’s very own single ‘I Get Lonely’ during the breakdown.
“Fans can rest assured despite a seven year long break, Janet has not lost her melting pot approach to crafting great pop music...
While ‘Dammn Baby’ never reaches the colossal highs of ‘If’ or the lyrical prowess of ‘Rhythm Nation’ it is a strong song which brings about a sense of nostalgia as well as assurance for Janet’s future singles. Fans can rest assured despite a seven year long break, Janet has not lost her melting pot approach to crafting great pop music.
