Janet Is Back Serving African Vibes And We Love It
It's Janet, Miss Jackson if you're nasty! The legendary musician exploded back onto the scene with her latest song and music video, her first since 2015! You already know why we think Janet Jackson is iconic on another level, and 'Made For Now', her new bop, simply adds to that.
The certified banger features Puerto Rican superstar Daddy Yankee, generous helpings of Spanish, and an Afrobeats inspired sound that has us all on our feet moving!
Fans could not get enough of the proudly Afrocentric visuals and sound, and the message of harmony conveyed in a multicultural bloc party that features in the Jackson family star's video.
For someone who has been in this industry for this many years and has seen and done the things that she has and is still able to give us new and fresh vibes @JanetJackson I stan a legend!!!❤❤❤ #MadeForNow pic.twitter.com/YH39PvLQh0— Janet the Goddess (@1goddessrp) August 17, 2018
It may be the year we all went to Wakanda, but Janet Jackson has been serving Motherland realness for a long time, as one Twitter user happily pointed out.
A thread to educate the misinformed and remind some of you that @JanetJackson has been doing these visuals for decades: one-shot music videos, block parties, dancing in the street, eclectic music with influences from many cultures + vibrant multicultural visuals. #MadeForNow pic.twitter.com/R2EUdwzIPB— ░ ░ CH A M E L E O N ░ ░ (@Chameleon876) August 18, 2018
The moment in the music video where she turns down a hat in favor of her headwrap is A MOOD.
And of course Janet slayed in her first live performance of 'Made For Now' on The Tonight Show this past Sunday. Just like the music video, Janet and her dancers brought it and played homage to African cultures.
The new song has inspired a new social media challenge, because so many of us loved it! The #MadeForNowChallenge has seen people from all walks of life embrace the joy and message of Jackson's latest hit and try out the moves for themselves, with amazing results.
YAAASSS to all of this! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾— ░ ░ CH A M E L E O N ░ ░ (@Chameleon876) August 19, 2018
“Paying tribute to @JanetJackson’s #MadeForNow music video debut. The video featuring @daddy_yankee is such in alignment to what us as curvy/plus-size dancers represent.”#MadeForNowChallenge pic.twitter.com/spTX4zrj6S
