At 15th May of 1993, Janet Jackson started a eight week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'That's The Way Love Goes', her sixth US No.1.
Included on her fifth studio album "Janet", this single saw Janet transitioning to sensual territory and themes of romantic lust, considered a shocking contrast among critics and the public. The song's slow tempo fused pop, R&B, and funk with flourishes of downtempo music. It received positive reception from contemporary music critics, who praised it as "iconic," "hypnotic," and an "extravaganza" for its production and vocals.
Like many of Janet's hits, this song was written and produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (she also has a writing/producing credit). It was the first single released under Janet Jackson's record-breaking $32 million contract with Virgin Records, the largest recording deal in history until Janet's brother Michael signed a whopping $50 million deal with Epic not long after.
By 1993, only sharp-eyed fans of 'In Living Color' would recognize a fresh-off-the-block Jennifer Lopez as a Fly Girl dancer on the sketch-comedy show and, even then, they probably didn't know her name. That year, Lopez also made a cameo appearance in this music video as a backing dancer and even got to speak a line of dialogue.
She cites Janet's video for "The Pleasure Principle" as inspiring her to get into the music business. "I was a little girl trying to do every single move that she was doing," Lopez said in a tribute to Janet.
"That's the Way Love Goes" received a Grammy Award for Best R&B song in addition to Billboard Awards, BMI Pop Award for Most Played Song, BPI Sales Awards, American Music Awards, and Soul Train Awards. Its accompanying music video received several nominations at the MTV Video Music Awards, including Best Female Video. It has sold over three million copies worldwide.
