Singer Hadar Covers Janet Jackson’s Pleasure Principle In Honor Of The Icon’s Birthday
With the world celebrating the birthday of music’s most beloved and influential legends, Janet ‘Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty’, Israeli-born singer songwriter Hadar pays homage to the icon with a vocally and rhythmically refreshing cover of Jackson’s classic hit ‘Pleasure Principle’.
In this performance you will hear the songstress’ personal take on what is one of her favorite songs by the pop icon. Most of Hadar’s musical inspirations come from 80’s artists such as Prince, Michael Jackson and more obscure acts like Vanity 6 and The Time. Hadar describes the 1980’s as “the most liberated decade of music”, adding, “musicians finally felt like they could push the envelope and be uncensored, like they could create in the most authentic way”.
Rising pop star Hadar has embarked on an online musical journey, paying tribute to artists who influenced her own artistry, as part of a growing series of acoustic performances on her YouTube channel. The series was kicked off with an emotional cover of Prince’s ‘Diamonds and Pearls’, following a lighter, sensual take on Bruno Mars’ ‘That’s What I Like’.
