Daily Boom 90's Nostalgia: Janet Jackson - 'That's the Way Love Goes'

"Like a moth to a flame
Burned by the fire
My love is blind
Can't you see my desire
That's the way love goes"

Janet Jackson returned to the airwaves in 1993 with a totally different vibe and it was fantastic. "That's The Way Love Goes" was an introduction to a smoother, sexier Janet and we all loved it. Her self-titled album remains my favorite and the series of videos that were born from it are some of the best of that decades. "That's The Way Love Goes" just sets the tone for the rest of the album. Watching Janet with "the kids" (her dancers) always made me want to be one of them. It was a great girl squad before girl squads were officially a thing.

The song slayed commercially too. It sat at number one on Billboard's Hot 100 for a record eight weeks and won a string of awards including a Grammy. Check out the video below. Let Janet take you on a journey back in time. Ya know, 24 years ago when life seemed a whole lot simpler!
