Janet Jackson Releases “No Sleeep” Single: Misspelled, One Verse, Trance-like


Janet Jackson’s new single “No Sleeep”: it’s misspelled, has one verse that comes in at around 2:40, and is meant to put you to sleep. I think it works. Interesting choice by Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam Harris. Couldn’t they write more verses? Did they have a lot of spare ‘e’s around? Anyway, the beat is nice. It reminds me of Patrice Rushen’s “Forget me Nots.”
