The single has been one of Janet Jackson’s most signature songs, particularly due to the line, “My first name ain’t baby, it’s Janet – Miss Jackson if you’re nasty,” which has been cemented in pop culture as a catchphrase. It was ranked number 30 on VH1’s “100 Best Songs of the Past 25 Years,” and listed as number 79 on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Pop Songs.”
