Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

Janet Jackson's 'No Sleeep' Leaks/ Rumored For Release On Tuesday?

What a grateful week to be a fan of Janet's as the singer shared both new music, and dates for her upcoming 'Unbreakable' tour. 

Recently, Janet's leading single off her upcoming project, "No Sleep" was leaked. 

The song actually sounds nice, and very sultry. Fans have been buzzing about the snippet, since its leaking.

No word on the official release of the single, but many fans have been saying on social media that the song will be hitting purchasing outlets on Tuesday. As for now, I'll be saving my coins. 

I'm glad that Janet Jackson is finally releasing mature content. I feel like an artist of Janet's age, always get confused at a certain period musically, because they want to please fans, but they never know the appropiate direction to go. Janet started in the 80s, meaning during her debut she had a different selection of competition, and a different sound at the time. Now, a few artist relatable to Janet's time are Mariah, Madonna, Jennifer, Mary, and Toni. When it comes to holding a particular set of credentials, I'm sure it's quite pressuring when it comes to releasing music still, because you are unaware of what may be the best route for you. Is it best to follow the current trend, or go by my heart, a singer may question. I mean, it is different holding many credentials such as Janet, because you get held at a higher pedstal? Regardless of the material so far, all ears are open for the new music from Janet. Why? She took a hiatus, leaving many to miss her.

Overall, Janet played it smart for taking a hiatus, because it really helped erase a lot of burdens for Janet, especially commercially. The singer noticed a decline commercially after her Superbowl Halftime performance, due to her wardrobe malfunction, which drew major controversy for the singer. Artist may fear of not being remembered after taking a break, but I think it'll really bring a positive return for the artist, because they aren't affected by their burdens, instead they are shown in a better light. And as previously said, 'You Don't Know What You've Got Till' It's Gone.'  Say Janet kept releasing material every two years, after the wardrobe malfunction. She would still be held down by that burden, because it's not like Janet is taking a break to sort of erase that burden. (..if that made any sense)

As for the snippet, it's very refreshing to hear Janet's voice again. I love Janet's silky tone on this snippet. It doesn't exactly sound organic though. In my opinion, it sounds quite similar to Janet's previous material from 'Discpline' or 'The Velvet Rope.' (mainly circa 1997) Still, I can't wait to hear the song in full. It seems like just the right quality for Janet's mature audience, and it's got a nice summer vibe. Sounds perfect for a evening hangout with your family. I'm sure this isn't what most fans were expecting, considering this is a slow mid-tempo jam.
