Is Janet Jackson’s ‘Unbreakable’ On Spotify? Here’s How You Can Stream It Right Now
I grew up obsessed with the big pop divas we've come to know by first name only, from Mariah and Celine to Whitney and Janet. I'd spend hours singing their songs at the top of my lungs in my childhood bedroom, and even into middle school, I was still putting their most iconic tracks on mixtapes I'd made for my crushes that I'd never actually give them. In particular, I remember being head over heels for Janet Jackson's "That's The Way Love Goes", a smooth, sultry track that I swore I understood deeply and profoundly, even though there's no way I could have, considering I was barely 13. This decades-long love affair was rekindled when I heard that she was finally planning to release a new album, her first since 2008's Discipline. Thankfully, we don't even have to wait for it anymore - you can stream Unbreakable on Spotify in its entirety right now.
It's pretty safe to say that we've all been anticipating this album since the moment we even heard it was happening, and the release of amazing singles like "No Sleep" and "Unbreakable" hasn't helped when it comes to maintaining any level of patience. Thankfully, those amazing tracks aren't even the highlights of the album — the other 16 tracks on Unbreakable are just as good, and it's an all-around killer album.
While I totally recommend buying the album in digital form on iTunes or even a physical CD copy from Amazon or your local music shop, if you're like me and prefer instant gratification, just open up Spotify and press play. Simple enough, right? However, I recommend you set aside a decent chunk of time, because once you start listening to Unbreakable, you're not going to want to stop — it's just that good. With collaborations from the likes of J. Cole and Missy Elliott, it couldn't be anything but, right?
Unbreakable is, without a doubt, one of the best albums of 2015 — I feel confident in saying that even though the album came out less than 24 hours ago. I promise that once you listen, you'll feel the same. Janet Jackson's still got it, and boy am I glad she's sharing it with us.
