Someone to Call My Lover" is a song by American singer-songwriter Janet Jackson from her seventh studio album, All for You (2001). Written and produced by Jackson and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the song was released as the album's second single on June 26, 2001 by Virgin Records. Using a guitar riff from America's "Ventura Highway", and the melody from Erik Satie's "Gymnopedié No. 1", "Someone to Call My Lover" talks about being determined to find a perfect match.
"Someone to Call My Lover" received positive reviews from critics, with most praising its innocence and sweet aura, picking the song as a standout track on the album. The song was a success on the charts, reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while reaching the top-ten in Canada and the top-twenty in Australia and the United Kingdom. A music video was directed by Francis Lawrence and centers on a jukebox. Another video for the "So So Def" remix was also released. Jackson has performed the song on two of her tours, most recently on her 2017 State of the World Tour. And to date it's her last top ten hit.
