Janet Jackson returns with her brand new single “Made For Now” released today!
by Mark Keen
Well I wasn’t expecting that? I’ve been the biggest fan of Janet since ‘Fame’ (I even have a copy of the seven inch 1984 duet with Cliff Richard, but don’t tell anyone), but perhaps I’ve always been more of a pop rather than R’N’B fan. So to see Janet reappear today (click image above to hear) with a fantastic track is music to my ears.
The new track and fantastic video appeared today and “Made For Now” ticks all the right boxes. The single is a duet with Daddy Yankee, the rapper (I’ve never heard of him either). It has a very tropical feel and the lyrics are uplifting and joyous. Janet looks stunning in probably her most exciting video in twenty years. The video filmed in New York appears to be filmed in one take, and whilst I am sure it isn’t I still love it. I defy you not to love it.
