It wasn't minimum. She still scored singles and albums that were globally successful. And hit tours too.

I forgot to mention that I speak from a South America point of view, Brazil more specifically. As much as some older people recognize her stardom and of course the MJ association, she's pretty much unknown for her hit songs here.

It seems y'all do a "let's find a way to question the validity of Janet's legacy" thread every other month on this site and it's really weird. If she's so forgotten or such a non-factor why all the threads? It's not like the Jan Fam has a massive presence on this forum to bait and troll and this site also skews young in its demographics and its pop girl idolatry so I really don't get it. If you not in the know about Mutha Janet now then you likely never will be. Leave her alone.

They didn't forget. They don't know or don't care. They need a narrative. 

U have no idea how difficult is to go thru the thread...  the stupidity and ignorance.... its like being dead... you don't know your stupid, just people around you suffer... i mean some of them are honest, saying "I haven't head of..." fine, but making stupid statements like "Shes irrelevant" or "forgotten" projecting their narrative... its like disease...  

iam not American and i KNOW her classics. And my country....

 

And since when streaming is a stamp for classics? Seriously? So, obviously, most of the artists from 60-90's are forgotten and irrelevant....

LMAO

 

PS. Streaming means that the artist is introduced to the new generation. Streaming and sales are 2 different worlds. One artist can be best selling in sales during their prime, but tank in streaming in the future. Streaming is like counting how much you repeat a song on CD, or vinyl... how idiotic is to compare all this?

 

 

Lets not forget the Les Moonves plan, to destroy Janet, which a lot of ATRL's follow right now... a sheep...

When I listened to TVR for the first time as a teen some sections of songs sounded familiar to me but I couldn’t pinpoint it. To me this means I have probably heard them as a little kid (outside of US) many times. Classics or not, I think this is enough testament to her status as a legend.

Imagine thinking Together Again, TTWLG, and All For You aren't classics :rip:

Just because a song was a hit back in the day, won't make it a classic :rip:

Their streams proves they're forgotten and forgotten songs can't be classics:priceless:

but those songs aren’t just “hits”, they’ve broken records and contributed to a legacy that people still reference to this day :celestial3:

 

you can’t just look at streams and disregard other means of sales, the song’s influence and their impact to denote what’s a classic or not

And the same people will call her songs "classics" because of StrEAmS.... or that Taylor Swift is bigger legend than MJ....

Imagine, thinking all this.

Let's see what streams will do for their faves in 20 years from now when nobody remembers them. Not everyone will survive the industry long enough to become a legacy act, especially after radio and tv bans.

A song can be a classic even if you’ve never heard it. Please get that into your simple pea-sized brains.

Nobody moved the goal post. The thread itself is about Janet having no 100M songs.

Together Again and That’s The Way Love Goes would be her big songs.

A classic should be a remembered song.

If Janet's peers like Whitney and Madonna could cross that mark with multiple songs, why couldn't Janet? 

It's just that her discography didn't stand the test of the time and she has no classics known by the public

Imagine thinking  the only way to recall songs is by streaming.

 

God forbid things like Radio:juanny: Being used as inspiration by younger artists

Streaming is the most popular way of music consumption right now. You can't just tune into radio to listen to a Janet song when you desire. That's what streaming platforms are for. Looking at the streaming numbers, her discography isn't that remembered

And Buying her Records.
