According to the publication, the sultry jam has become Janet’s 27th hit on Adult R&B Songs and she’s now tied with Faith Evans for third-most visits among women — Mary J. Blige leads with 51, followed by Mariah Carey with 33.
In addition to being her highest entrance ever on the chart, “No Sleeep” marks her first entry on the list in five years. Janet last appeared with her 2010 hit, “Nothing,” which peaked at number 15.
“No Sleeep,” produced by longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, is the lead offering from Jackson’s upcoming studio album, due in the fall. The set will serve as the follow-up to 2008’s Discipline.
