Extensive Definition

"Enjoy" is an R&Bpop song written and produced by American singer-songwriter Janet Jackson and American songwrite-producers James Harris III, Terry Lewis, Bobby Ross Avila, and Issiah J. Avila for Jackson's ninth studio album, 20 Y.O. (2006). An online petition made by fans was created for the song to be released as a single worldwide, which failed to happen as it was only released in Japan for promo and airplay. Virgin Records released another song from 20 Y.O., "With U", to American R&B radio as the third American single, while there was no third single for any other country. Subsequently, no video was filmed for "Enjoy".
