"All for You" is a song by American recording artist Janet Jackson, released as the lead single from her seventh studio album, All for You (2001). Written and produced by Jackson and Jam and Lewis, "All for You" is a dance pop song about flirting with someone on the dance floor. It received positive reviews from critics, and was noted for its transition to a brighter and more optimistic sound from the darker tone of Janet's previous album The Velvet Rope.
Jackson was titled the "Queen of Radio" by MTV as the song made radio history, becoming the first single to be added to every pop, rhythmic, and urban radio format within its first week of release. It also set the record for the highest debut of a song, which was not commercially available in both the United States and France. The song peaked atop the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks, making it the longest reigning hit of the year, and notably reached number one in Brazil, Canada and Japan, also peaking within the top five and ten of the majority of the charts worldwide.
"All for You" is considered one of Jackson's signature hits, and received a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording, ASCAP Award for Song of the Year, and Teen Choice Award for Best Single, as well as several sales awards in the United Kingdom and Japan, and certifications in Australia, France, and New Zealand. The song's music video received several accolades, including a nomination for Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards.
