The Blueprint

blueprint_destaq
30 years later, Control’s legacy holds strong. Its impact and influence extend over various aspects of our culture. People wanted to use key earrings, drop her catchphrases on conversations and artists adopted the ‘Janet Jackson microphone’. She redefined music with her use of intros and interludes, her dance breaks became mandatory for almost any pop video in the years to come, and her infusion of styles were the blueprint for contemporary R&B. Come with us revisit memories from the Control Era, and other reminders of its long lasting repercussion.

30 anos depois, o legado do Control continua firme. Seu impacto e influência se extendem por vários aspectos da cultura pop, em especial a norte-americana. As pessoas queriam usar brincos de chave, usar os bordões do álbum nas conversas, e os artistas adotaram o “microfone da Janet Jackson”. Ela redefiniu a música com seu uso de intros e interludes, e seus dance breaks viraram obrigatórios em qualquer clipe pop por muitos anos a seguir. Sua infusão de estilos foram a base do R&B contemporâneo. Venha conosco revisitar as memórias da Era Control, e outras lembranças da vasta repercussão do disco.
