About this Episode

In this edition of #JCsMusicology, we explore Janet Jackson's The Velvet Rope album, track by track.

Following a three-year world tour and the release of a greatest hits album, Janet Jackson began writing her most personal and introspective songs. Detailing depression, domestic violence, and early incarnations of social media, this collection of songs would be configured into what many regard as her greatest work, The Velvet Rope.
