July 31, 2001, may not seem like a special date to many, but some Top 40 aficionados will remember it as the day Now That's What I Call Music 7 hit shelves and enlivened music lovers of all tastes with their favorite summer jams. Released just a few months before the arrival of the first iPod, this is the last Now album to find its home solely in the slot of Walkmans and CD players across the country.
Thirteen years later, we're up to Now 51 and can get any song we want on our smartphones, but that doesn't mean we should forget the pre-selected simplicity Now 7 brought to teen drivers, road trippers and daily commuters back in 2001. To celebrate this compilation's birthday, we checked up on each of the 19 artists that contributed to this mix of boy bands and pop queens.

It was 10 years ago that the wardrobe malfunction seen around the world – or at least the country – occurred on the halftime stage of Super Bowl XXXVIII.
At the end of Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's performance of "Rock Your Body," the now-solo 'NSYNCer pulled off a section of Jackson's dress, accidentally revealing her breast to roughly 140 million viewers.
The slip was paused, rewound and replayed endlessly over the following weeks, becoming fodder for every TV host and the source of outrage for thousands of moms. Even a decade later, the infamous halftime show is cited more than almost any other Super Bowl moment, but Nipplegate goes further than nostalgia.

Janet Jackson is off the market!
The singer, 46, and Qatari businessman, Wissam Al Mana, tied the knot last year, the couple's rep confirmed to PEOPLE on Monday.
"The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true," they told ETOnline, which broke the official wedding news. "Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony."

Forget Paris Jackson's ultra-famous father – or her equally famous family, for that matter. The teenager wants to be taken on her terms.
"I love my dad, and I'm proud to be his daughter," Jackson, 14, tells Glamour for its October issue. "I just don't think the title 'M.J.'s daughter' fits me."
Jackson maintains an active Twitter presence, and has already booked her first movie role – in the upcoming film Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.

Just days after matriarch Katherine Jackson was reported missing – and then located in Arizona – the Jackson family seems to be facing more drama after police were called to the family home on Monday.
The L.A. Sheriff's department responded to a family disturbance call at Katherine's home on Monday afternoon after Janet, Randy and Jermaine Jackson reportedly tried to take Michael Jackson's children Prince, Paris and Blanket from the compound.
"Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred of misdemeanor battery," said L.A. Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore. "It involved members of the Jackson family. A report was taken. No arrests were made, and the investigation is ongoing."
Whitmore confirmed that the altercation involved "two people," although he did not specify which two. He did add, "If we thought an arrest should have been made, we would have made it."

After years of yo-yo dieting, Janet Jackson is finally at the size she wants to be. Just don't ask her how many pounds she's dropped.
"I don't know how much weight I've lost, only because I stay away from the scale," Jackson told PEOPLE at Marco Glavianos "Supermodels" exhibit in New York recently.
"I don't think [stepping on the scale] is healthy. You're setting yourself up to fail and women's bodies fluctuate every month – certain time of the month in particular – we bloat a great deal," she says.

First Janet, now Britney?
Less than a week after Janet Jackson sparked speculation that she may be joining The X Factor as a judge, Britney Spears is now the subject of casting buzz.
"Are we flattered that there could be interest? Yes," Simon Cowell told reporters on a conference call Wednesday, but wouldn't discuss what he thinks Spears would bring to the show as a judge. "I've learned a big lesson: keep your mouth shut. Don't give it all away."
