Like a '90s dance track 8-)
VIDEO. 8-)
That remix is a fabulous and works so amazingly with the music video, especially the dance scene. :D
Agreed! The video reminds me of Madonna's 'Ray Of Light' video by the way :)

And is it just me or is the video just slightly out of sync with the audio at times?
Pretty much the whole performance, which is sad.

Still, the fantastic Eric Kupper remix improves an already good summery song!
They need rappers like me
So they can get on their ****' keyboards and make me the bad guy, Chun-Li

Tracks of the week reviewed: Janet Jackson, Calvin Harris, and Alice in Chains (The Guardian)
Proof of Janet Jackson’s divinity has been mounting lately. A miracle baby at 50. The capacity to lose 70lbs overnight. Whatever it was that happened to her forehead. Now, the rarest of holy relics: a comeback single as good as her prime. As the most bankable name in 2018, Daddy Yankee earns his globe-pop keep, but this is no oldie throwing herself at a passing bandwagon. Janet reaches through; the voice of an old friend, somehow unscarred by time, beaming, beatific.

After such heavy promotion I thought the payoff would be greater than #88. No sleeps was 25 places higher based on pure buzz alone, not a scrap of promotion. Was it simply down to streaming??

No I was referring to that mention in the article:

It's just typical British journalism where they're ridiculing her appearance (in this case, botox)

Sales are down. Way more than in 2015 and streaming definitely plays a bigger part nowadays.

So happy to see this showing stability on iTunes!

This should be featured in some sort of back-to-school Target commercial. The soccer moms won’t know what hit them.

The fact that it debuted in top 10 of Digital Sales Chart is a success itself.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

Yes. Plus Daddy Yankee is not really big in America.

To me, this is already a great start of an era. It actually feels like an era, unlike in 2015.

The solo version of the single debuted on the Hot 100 at number 67. She didn't need him, imo.

Janet hasn't released anything groundbreaking in a few decades, but I don't care that this is the basic Janet I've come to expect, because it's nice enough.

The live performance of this on Jimmy Fallon is still the sh*t. She's still killing it.

A few is typically at least 3-4, which is basically her entire music career.
