All for You is the seventh studio album by American recording artist Janet Jackson, released on April 16, 2001 by Virgin Records. All for You is a concept album rooted in Jackson's separation from husband and collaborator René Elizondo, Jr. and sees Jackson heavily incorporating pop and dance-pop music. Unlike The Velvet Rope, which saw Jackson tackling darker issues like domestic violence and depression, All for You showcased a fluffier pop sound targeting a younger audience and with lyrics talking mostly about her then-recent divorce, music industry and sex.

Throughout All for You, Janet incorporates different moods, with the first songs being more dance-oriented; such as "You Ain't Right", "All for You" and "Come on Get Up", while the following tracks are openly about sex, including "When We Oooo", "Love Scene (Ooh Baby)" and "Would You Mind", with the latter being forbidden in some countries for its raunchy lyrics. Jackson also explores her divorce in "Truth", "Trust a Try" and "Son of a Gun", while the closing tracks are carefree and aimed at a bright direction; such as "Someone to Call My Lover", "Feels So Right" and "Better Days".

All for You was very well received by music critics, who praised its freshness, also calling it one of her sexiest and best albums of her career. The album received three Grammy Awards nominations, including one for "Best Pop Vocal Album", winning "Best Dance Recording" for its title track. Billboard and Sputnikmusic placed the album on lists of the Best Albums of 2001. Commercially, All for You was a commercial success. In the U.S., it became her fifth straight number one debut in the United States, and the biggest opening week sales of her career, selling over 600,000 copies. It has sold over 3 million copies in the U.S., and over 7 million worldwide. To further promote the album, Janet embarked on her All for You Tour during 2001-2002.

Three official singles were released from the album; despite "Doesn't Really Matter", which was a single from the soundtrack of the comedy film Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, and "Come on Get Up", which was a single in Japan, being promotional singles. The official lead-single, "All for You", was released in 2001 and became one of Janet's most successful singles, topping the Billboard Hot 100 charts for seven weeks. The following singles, "Someone to Call My Lover" and "Son of a Gun", attained moderate success on the charts; with the first being more successful than the latter.

Background and recording[edit]

In 1997, Janet released her sixth studio album The Velvet Rope. The album, which deals with themes of domestic violence and depression, spawned the number-one hit "Together Again" and the top-three success "I Get Lonely", besides being acclaimed by music critics and being certified 3x platinum, solely in the U.S..[4] Between 1998 and 1999, Janet embarked on her third world tour, The Velvet Rope World Tour, and did some collaborations with other artists such as Shaggy on "Luv Me, Luv Me", and Busta Rhymes on "What's It Gonna Be?!".[4] In 2000, Jackson contributed with a song for the soundtrack of the 2000 comedy film Nutty Professor II: The Klumps,[5] while her then-husband Rene Elizondo filled for divorce.[6]

Amidst her divorce, Janet started recording her upcoming seventh studio album. During an interview for MTV in September 2000, producer Jimmy Jam intimated that Janet has completed several tracks for her new disc, one of which includes a guest performer by rapper Jay-Z.[7] In February 2001, MTV News reported Janet was wrapping up work on an "upbeat, fun and carefree" follow-up to her dark and sexually explicit The Velvet Rope (1997) and that the "as-yet-untitled effort" should hit shelves at the end of April.[8] Jim also revealed: "In the history of Janet, the records that are the happy records, that make people smile, have always traditionally been the more successful records, ... going back as far to songs like 'When I Think of You' to [her most recent hit] 'Doesn't Really Matter.' This continues that tradition, with kind of a nod to the dance music of the '80s. 'All 4 U' should be ready for radio in the next couple of weeks, and an accompanying video will be shot shortly thereafter", the producer said.[8]

According to producer Jimmy Jam, "This record now, even though it may not be the best of times in her personal life, she feels that the future is bright. ... She's excited about music and about life in general. She's excited about what the next year will hold for her, and that's the tone she's set for herself and [the album]."[8] Besides Jam & Lewis, known as the Flyte Tyme team, who have produced all of Jackson's albums since her third disc, the breakthrough Control (1986), Jackson has enlisted additional producers, collaborating with Rockwilder (which Jackson is a fan of the Method Man and Redman songs he produced) and The Neptunes.[8] However, the songs Janet did we The Neptunes ("Boyz" and "Ectasy") didn't make the album's final cut.[9] Actually, the song "Boyz" was later recorded by Britney Spears under the title "Boys" for her third studio album, Britney (2001).[10] It was also released as a single in remix form as a collaboration with Pharrell Williams, and it received frequent comparisons to Jackson (including the "get nasty" shout in the end of the song; a reference of Jackson's single "Nasty")[11] and is said by Spears to be her favorite song to perform.

Composition and themes[edit]

John Mulvey of Yahoo! Music noted that "'All For You' is a concept album of sorts, rooted in Jackson's traumatic separation from husband and collaborator René Elizondo, Jr.. It begins tremendously, with a bunch of party tracks illustrating a newly-free woman checking out men on the dancefloor. Soon, the action moves to the bedroom, and some amusingly explicit shagging tracks, before a virulent suite detailing what a bastard her ex is. Finally, there's a soppy phase heralding a new life and the prospects of new love."[12] According to Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic, 'All for You' is "an album that is as about sex as much as 'The Velvet Rope', yet there's a key difference -- it feels sexy, not pornographic."[3] For him, the album has three main themes: divorce, industry, and sex.[3] Jon Pareles of New York Times described the album's storyline as "Girl beds guy, girl dumps guy, girl moves on."[13] Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine named it a "chockfull of '70s influences and her own '80s catalog as well.[14] Shaheem Reid of MTV News perceived that the album is "dominated by two themes: the liberation that comes with ending a bad relationship, and sex." Reid also noted that "the production on the album doesn't stray far from Jackson's previous outings, blending together elements of funk, pop, R&B and rock.[2]

The album, like many of her other albums, is full with spoken interludes, starting with its "Intro", which finds Jackson doing a Fran Drescher impression.[1] The opening song "You Ain't Right" is a scathing attack on a gossipy girlfriend,[14] with piston-like rhythms, drum machines and synths,[1] while the title track is a chirpy computer pop[1] and disco song,[15] about an erotic fantasy, with Janet admiring a man’s "package" and wanting to "ride it".[16] "Come on Get Up" follows with a "synth-frenzied splendor" reminiscent of Control,[14] and marries tribal house to FM pop,[17] while the "feel-good" vibe of "When We Oooo" is a cross between 'When I Think of You' and 'Love Will Never Do (Without You)',[8] where Janet describes sexual encounter.[16] On "China Love," which begins with the sounds of traditional Oriental chimes, she rhapsodizes about past-life love connections and other new age ambiguities,[14] while "Love Scene (Ooh Baby)" offsets a groove with her Smokey Robinson-like falsetto to exquisitely carnal effect."[1]

The ninth and eleventh tracks are both co-producers by Rockwilder, with Jimmy Jam stating, "We thought Rock was going to bring us a bunch of funky stuff, and all of a sudden he hit us with a ballad track. We were blown away." While "Would You Mind" has Janet running down a graphic list of her myriad sexual desires,[1] with the singer moaning, "I'm gonna kiss you/Suck you/Taste you," as she instructs her lover, "Oh, yeah, baby, just like that",[15] "Trust a Try" mixes rock elements with a funky, Dirty South beat,[8] laced with theatrical vocal arrangements, electric guitars and cinematic strings.[14] The following track "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)," features Carly Simon and interpolates Simon's hit "You're So Vain", in a mean-spirited duet that rails against enemies, with Jackson laces into a guy for his "sleazy one-track mind",[16] exposing anger with the lines, "Ha ha, hoo hoo/Thought you'd get the money too/Greedy motherfuckers try to have their cake and eat it too."[14] On the slow groove "Truth",[3] while discussing a failed romance, Jackson states, "Truth will set you free".[16] The following track "Someone to Call My Lover" is built around a guitar motif from America's 1972 folk hit 'Ventura Highway',[3] with lyrics about yearnings for love and togethernesss.[18] The 80's fluffy track "Feels So Right" follows,[14] while "Doesn't Really Matter" looks past physical appearance, choosing to love the person inside.[16] The ballad "Better Days" ends the album on a note of uplift,[15] featuring a strong vocal with a guitar solo and striking strings.[14]

Release and promotion[edit]

About a month before its release, MTV aired a special entitled MTV Icon, and its first honorary icon was Jackson herself. Many artists paid tribute to Jackson on that night and commemorated her success since Control, such as Britney Spears, producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Christina Aguilera, 'N Sync, Usher, Mýa, OutKast, P!nk, Aaliyah, Jennifer Lopez, and brother Michael Jackson. Jackson performed "All for You" at the end of the special.[19] "All for You" was released on April 23, 2001, in the U.S., and its cover features Janet lying nude in bed, covered only by a sheet.[15] A deluxe edition of the album was released in November 2001 as All For You: DVD Edition with a bonus DVD featuring music videos (some of which had been previously unavailable on home video), interviews and behind the scenes footage, spanning from the promotion of the album janet. to the promotion and making of All For You.[20]

Tour[edit]

To further promote the album, Janet embarked on her fourth world tour, the All for You Tour. In April 2001, the singer announced the first dates, between July and October, in Canada and the United States.[21] The North American tour wrapped in November 15, 2001 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She also lined up Japanese dates for January 2002, despite cancelling an extensive European tour over safety concerns. An appearance at the 2001 MTV Europe Music Awards was also canceled.[22]

Controversy[edit]

Despite strong language and extremely strong sexual content and themes, first pressings of the album did not contain a Parental Advisory warning on it, and thus, a clean version was not offered.[16] In mid-2001, the album was re-released with a Parental Advisory warning on it, along with a bonus track; the remix of "Son of a Gun". With the re-release, a clean version was then issued, which retained the "Son of a Gun" remix, but omitted the track "Would You Mind", while also censoring "Love Scene (Ooh Baby)", "Trust a Try", "Better Days", and the original album version of "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)".[23]

The album was banned in Singapore, since they decided that the lyrics of the album, particularly one song, "Would You Mind", were "not acceptable to our society". Singapore officials also banned Jackson's previous album, The Velvet Rope, because three of its songs contained lyrics about homosexuality. However, Jackson's management refused to remove the track from the album.[24] The Wherehouse record chain affixed its own explicit content stickers to the album. "We don't think retailers should have to do that," said RIAA president Hilary Rosen. "That's the label's responsibility, and EMI [Virgin's parent company] has assumed that responsibility." [23]

Upon its release, All for You received generally positive reviews from most music critics.[25] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 73, based on 14 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[25] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic favored All for You over her last studio album, The Velvet Rope, stating, "[...] This is her sexiest-sounding record, thanks to Jam and Lewis' silky groove and her breathy delivery, two things that make the record palatable throughout too many spoken interludes and songs that just don't quite click."[3] Tom Sinclair of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a 'B' rating, noting that, "Despite a few missteps, All for You is about as good as modern diva-pop gets, with a higher ratio of worthy-to-mediocre songs than might be expected. Granted, that's not saying much. But it adds up to a lot more than most female singers have done for us lately."[1]

Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone gave the album a three-and-a-half out of five star rating, declaring that All for You "admittedly does not break much new ground, but it's just as fresh, familiar and appealing as you've come to expect from Jackson, and that's no small achievement."[15] Gene Stout of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer called All for You "one of the best of her career",[18] while John Mulvey of Yahoo! Music UK referred to the album as "her most unnerving and plausible character thus far."[12] He went on to say that, "This is a much more satisfying album than The Velvet Rope, even if most of the songs are overlong and a few juggle satin sheet-cliches with self-help ones to numbing effect. Nevertheless, All for You stands as a monument to the positive effects of divorce."[12]

With a three-out-of-four star rating, Steve Jones of USA Today commented that "on this fifth collaboration with producers James 'Jimmy Jam' Harris and Terry Lewis, the singer is in a sexy, fun-loving mood [...] While she overdoes the between-song interludes here, she never fails to get you to move. When it comes to burning up a dance floor, she is still Ms. Jackson."[28] With a five-out-of-ten star rating, Piers Martin of NME named it "another over-produced album of predictable designer funk in the Prada bag."[17] The New York Times music critic Jon Pareles realized that the album "isn't as immediately melodic as Ms. Jackson's previous albums, but it compensates for lost catchiness with unabashed strangeness."[13] Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine was less favorable of the album, rating it two-out-of five stars, calling it "a generally banal and unchallenging collection of songs."[14]

Accolades[edit]

All for You and its tracks received numerous awards and nominations. In 2001, Jackson accepted Billboard's 2001 award for "Artistic Achievement", due to the success of the album.[29] Jackson also received four nominations on the same award ceremony.[30] Also in 2001, the singer won a special American Music Award, being the 28th recipient of the "Award of Merit", given each year for "outstanding contributions to the musical entertainment of the American public."[31] Janet received three nominations on the 44th Annual Grammy Awards, winning Best Dance Recording for the song "All for You", and receiving nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album for the album All for You and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Someone to Call My Lover".[32] Janet also received the American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and was nominated for Favorite Soul/R&B Album, losing to Aaliyah's self-titled album.[33] Billboard magazine ranked All for You at number 141 on the magazine's "Top 200 Albums of the Decade".[34] Sputnikmusic placed "All for You" at number 43 on their "Best Pop Albums of 2001" list.[35]

Commercial performance[edit]

All for You debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, selling 605,128 copies in its first week.[44] It was Jackson's fifth straight number one debut in the United States, and the biggest opening week sales of her career.[45] In its second week All for You fell to number 2 with 310,000 copies sold. In its third chart week, the album fell to number 3 with sales of 215,000 copies,[46] and in its fourth chart week, the album fell to number 5 with sales of 149,000 copies,[47] achieving an estimated total of 1,279,128 copies sold in its first month of release. Outside of the United States, the album was a commercial success, debuting at number one in Canada (with 37,200 copies sold at the first week[48]), becoming the first of her career in Canada,[49] and in the top five in Australia,[50] The Netherlands,[51] Europe,[52] France,[53] Germany,[54] Japan,[55] (with 63,450 copies sold at the first week[55]) Norway,[56] Sweden,[57] Switzerland,[58] and The United Kingdom.[59]

The album was first certified gold by the RIAA on May 18, 2001 denoting 500,000 units shipped within the United States.[60] The same day, the album's certification was raised to platinum, denoting 1,000,000 units shipped[60] then double platinum denoting 2,000,000 units shipped.[60] In Denmark, the album was certified Gold, and is her only certified album in the country.[61] It's also certified Gold in Finland,[62] New Zealand,[63] and Belgium.[64] As of September 2009, All for You has sold 3,107,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.[65] According to the artist's website, it has sold over seven million copies worldwide.[66]

Singles[edit]

On May 27, 2000, Jackson released the single "Doesn't Really Matter" from the Nutty Professor II: The Klumps soundtrack. It was a number-one hit in the United States, reaching the top of the Hot 100 charts for three weeks.[4] Though it was initially included on the film's soundtrack, it was later included on All for You, albeit with a slightly different intro, a shortened outro and two dance breaks added towards the middle of the song. Janet also performed the same version of the song at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.[67] The album's title track was released as the first official single associated with the album on March 23, 2001, and became Jackson's most successful hit single in the United States since 1993's "That's the Way Love Goes", reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and remaining there for seven weeks.[4] Elsewhere, the song reached the top-ten in most countries it charted.[68] Its music video was nominated for 4 MTV Video Music Awards including Video of the Year and Best Female Video.[4]

The album's second single, "Someone to Call My Lover", was released on June 26, 2001, and was also a success, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and remaining there for three weeks. Elsewhere, the song became a top-twenty and top-forty hit[69] The song earned a nomination at the 44th Grammy Awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, but lose it to "I'm Like a Bird" by Nelly Furtado.[32] The following single, "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)" (which features Carly Simon and interpolates her 1972 hit "You're So Vain") did not meet the same success as the album's previous singles; peaking at number twenty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100 charts[4] and the top-forty in some countries.[69] As opposed to the original album version being released as a single, the song was remixed and added rap verses by Missy Elliott and P. Diddy (on some versions). It was later included as a bonus track on the album's re-release.

There were plans to release "Come On Get Up" as a commercial single in 2002 and a video was to be shot for the single, but it was canceled. Instead, promo CDs and vinyls were issued to DJs in Japan and America only in November 2001.[70] It was a success in Japan, reaching the top-ten in early 2002.[71] Also, on MTV's TRL in Spring 2001, Janet had told Carson Daly that "Trust a Try" would be a future single, but there were no plans for the single release.
