"Janet Jackson`s new record company may be losing sleep over her first release for BMG Records. Her new single, No Sleeep, got a lot of media attention when it was launched a couple of weeks ago. But so far, it`s not selling on iTunes and isn`t getting much radio play. Janet is having the same problems as Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and other older singers who are trying to stay in the game and be relevant.
No Sleeep has met with indifference at radio stations. According to MediaBase, which tracks airplay, No Sleeep is not keeping anyone awake at but a few urban stations. The single hasn`t crossed over into pop, and hasn`t caught fire at R&B stations. "
Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna and Janet Jackson were hot in their 20s and 30s, and they moved a lot of product when they were young. But all of the aforementioned divas look suspect in their 40`s and 50`s, even with a lot of cosmetic surgery, and they`re not selling any records.
It may be sexist and it may be unfair but female pop stars plummet in the charts when they lose their youth and vitality.
Even if Janet Jackson had an "accidental" wardrobe-malfunction, exposing her nether regions, it wouldn`t help her move merchandise.
Jackson`s single No Sleeep is a snoozer, and the album from which it comes from is as effective as Propofol in inducing sleep.
Jackson might as well fall into eternal sleep, she`s a tired and played-out old lady.
