Thirty years ago, Janet Jackson released the song “If,” the second single from her game- and career-changing album, janet. If the first song, “That’s the Way Love Goes,” first cast her in a sultry new light, this song, and its accompanying video, confirmed her to be a consummate performer who was all grown up and had the moves and charisma to prove it. Day and night, night and day, I hear this song in my head, and so should you. It’s a major bop. Give it a listen now!
