Janet Jackson’s highly anticipated new single Made For Now is out now. A collaboration between the iconic singer and Reggaeton superstar Daddy Yankee and you watch the video for it above here.
Jackson is also set to perform the song for the first time live with Daddy Yankee on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35 p.m. EST.
The iconic singer set off a social media frenzy among her fans when she posted the single’s artwork on her Instagram page late last night. This marks her first new music since her eleventh studio album and seventh No. 1 album, Unbreakable, released in October 2015.
‘Made For Now’ was inspired by Janet Jackson’s personal love of music from around the globe and was produced by Harmony Samuels, who has crafted tracks for Ariana Grande, Mary J. Blige, Maroon 5, and Jennifer Lopez.
The song is meant to move people to enjoy their lives and seize opportunities today, not worry or wait until tomorrow. Shot in Brooklyn, New York, the music video was produced by Jackson’s long-time collaborator; and Grammy-Award winning Director, Dave Myers and is intended to transport fans to a neighborhood dance party filled with cameos from a contingent of international dancers from Ghana, Nigeria, Grenada, Trinidad and the US who were hand selected by Jackson and her long-time Creative Director Gil Duldulao.
Made For Now caps an incredible summer for Janet Jackson, who headlined major festivals including Essence Festival in New Orleans, the largest crowd in its 24-year history. She had press and fans buzzing about her first ever New York festival performance at Panorama, where Billboard said, “Turning out flawlessly executed choreography for over an hour and a half… Jackson is an unstoppable dynamo on stage.”
It was also recently announced that Jackson would headline the Global Citizen Festival on 29 September in New York’s Central Park.
