New Video: Beyonce Run the world (Girls)

These are some exciting times people. Finally the debut of Beyonce’s long awaited video for Run the World (Girls) has premiered on American Idol earlier tonight and can be seen in it's entirety on vevo. Just when you we’re wondering if Beyonce had disregarded the single that has been rumored to have leaked prior to its scheduled time, the airing of this video is  a strong confirmation that Ms. Knowles hasn’t abandoned the single. It’s garnered pretty strong reactions thus far, which may come as a result of doing a first single that is so risky and bold. However, now that things are being kicked into high gear, it may prove that something different can become something worthwhile. The song is a great break from what’s on radio. This video is certainly a wonderful visual and if nothing else, a bridge to allowing people to identify with the song and put everything in perspective. We commend Beyonce on a job well done!

Happy Birthday Janet Jackson, “The Page Celebrates a Queen”

We honor the Queen of pop, who we unanimously adore here at “The Page”. Janet is not only a remarkable artist with great classic albums and unforgettable ground breaking performances, but she’s an accomplished musician with unparalleled highs in a career spanning almost 3 decades. We want to highlight Janet’s accomplishments and celebrate her work as fans that are uplifted by her music. She’s exceptional in so many areas and we credit her for being such a well rounded artist that has displayed genius in her songwriting talents as well as her other musical gifts. She impressively plays the piano, drums and sings in foreign languages. Janet is a video Goddess and known to be a dynamic master of commanding a stage.

Janet is one of the few artist that have contributions to the music world that are still infused into today’s crafting of artistic expression in the industry. Janet’s material had substance and themes that were so relevant and historical. These songs have impacted lives. Rhythm Nation’s take on addressing prejudice, homelessness and illiteracy was not only allowing pop culture to evolve into  a more conscious state it was shedding light on issues that were constantly being swept under a rug. The "Janet" album became an album were people discovered and embraced their own sexual liberation. Janet was fearless and unapologetic in her approach to giving women a voice in demanding what they want when it came to what was taboo or unfathomable for them to express. Finally “The Velvet Rope”, laid a foundation for most artists that do introspective albums and really cracked open all of the inner conflicts that people have on a daily basis. It explored the feelings of inadequacy, sexual preference and confronting your demons. It was a vulnerable place for Janet and such a brave and empowering statement made with that album. These are the events that secured Janet’s place in the music world we live in.

Janet’s track record certainly speaks for itself, her Rhythm Nation tour went down in history as the biggest debut tour ever seeing over 2.5 million patrons. Janet has sold over 100 million albums, scored 10 #1 hits on the Hot100, 16 #1’s on the R&B songs chart, she’s also obtained 20 #1 dance hits. Janet has won 33 billboard awards (the most by any artist) and 6 Grammy’s. Outside of breaking records in music she is also quite successful in her other endeavors. Janet started out on the sitcoms “Good Times”, Different Strokes” and “Fame”.  She has 3 #1 movies (Poetic Justice, Nutty Professor II: The klumps and Why did I get Married), not to mention a Times best seller for her first book as an author, “True you”. Janet is a big part of our lives and her mark on the world is certainly nothing short of phenomenal.
