The Velvet Rope is the 6th studio album by Janet Jackson. The album was released on October 7, 1997 on Virgin Records. album, "The Velvet Rope" takes the concept of sexuality a step further, encompassing sadomasochism & same-sex relationships as well addressing social issues such as homophobia and domestic violence. The Velvet Rope debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming Janet's fourth consecutive album to top the chart.

Featuring Vanessa-Mae. Produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis & Janet Jackson. Album The Velvet Rope. We have a special need To feel that we belong Come with me inside Inside my velvet rope We have a special need To feel that we belong Come with me inside Inside my velvet rope. We're one of the special. This special need that's within us Brings out the best yet worst in us Follow the passion that's within you Living the truth will set you free. We have a special need To feel that we belong.

The Velvet Rope back then would become the equivalent of today’s Lemonade by Beyoncé. The Velvet Rope would introduce themes of self love, depression, masturbation, same sex relationships, BDSM, online/long distance dating, domestic violence, homophobia and celebration of the LGBT community. Janet coming from a dark place in life would release this gem to to the world for it to break into the Billboard 200 making it her fourth consecutive album to do so. The album would top over five major countries and sell over 10 million copies worldwide. It’s been twenty years since Janet released her iconic album The Velvet Rope and I wanted to celebrate that by posting this amazing impactful performance of What About from the Velvet Rope Tour.
