New: Janet Jackson – No Sleeep (ft. J Cole) (Video)
In preparation for her comeback, Janet Jackson premieres the J Cole assisted clip.
Janet proves less-is-more in the video for her comeback single “No Sleeep.” The simple Dave Meyers-directed visual features the superstar inside a mansion late at night during a rainstorm performing the sultry jam. Background images of the singer’s childhood photos are dispersed throughout and she pays homage to Michael Jackson with a scene where she tips her hat in a dance move.
The inclusion of J. Cole on the track is a perfect choice as his laid-back, chilled style perfectly compliments the sensual slow-burning groove. This version of the song will appear on Janet’s as-yet-untitled 11th studio album, due in late September on her Rhythm Nation label via BMG and on Aug. 31, Janet will kick off the first leg of her “Unbreakable World Tour”.
“I hope u enjoy watching this as much as we enjoyed making it,” said Janet, and Cole tweeted, “No Sleeep. Classic!”. Catch the clip below:
