You Said is the thirteenth studio album by US singer-songwriter Jermaine Jackson, released in 1991 as his only album released with LaFace Records, and his last with Arista.

Background[edit]

According to Jackson, he was the first major act to sign with LaFace Records. Released in 1991, the entire album was produced by "The LaFace Family", consisting of L.A. Reid, Babyface, Kayo, and Daryl Simmons.[2] Compared to many of his previous releases, You Said was a commercial failure, failing to peak within the Billboard 200. The original version of "Word to the Badd" gained significant controversy for its scathing lyrics directed towards his brother Michael.[3] Although this version was not included on the US edition of the album, both the original and re-written versions of the song were included on the international edition of the album. In 2009, all of Jackson's albums released with Arista Records were re-released on CD format, with new bonus tracks, in Japan.[4] The re-release of You Said was based on the international edition of the album, and thus contained the original version of "Word to the Badd".

Allmusic2.5/5 stars [5]

Ed Hogan from Allmusic gave the album a mixed review, saying "at times, You Said sounds derivative of LA Reid & Babyface's previous productions". However, he did also credit it as "one of Jackson's better post-Motown albums".[5]

Singles[edit]

"Word to the Badd!" was released as the album's lead single in 1991. Although it never was fully released, it was the most successful single from the album, reaching #78 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #88 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.[6] The second single from the album, "You Said, You Said", had more success on the Hot R&B charts, reaching #25. The third single, "I Dream, I Dream" reached #30 on the Hot R&B charts.[6]
