Janet Jackson new single ‘I Want You’ is a nostalgic trip back to the soulful Motown Jackson era. A love song full of sweet melody, nice backing vocals and laid back groove. It makes a change from the upbeat tempo and modern r’n’b progression we’re used to with Janet these days. The lyrics are simple. She just wants her man and she’s telling it straight.
The track builds up towards the end. There’s nice strings to give the
song feeling, a cool groove from the bass, backed by the drums and there’s even a triangle thrown in there for good measure. A blast from the past, with sweet serenity for those candlelit moments.
