For many, Pop icon Janet Jackson is a rarity, a deity, and a bonafide legend in music.
Now, after launching Rhythm Nation Records, she can also add label head to her lengthy list of titles.
Beyond orchestrating the release and roll-out of her own new album ‘Unbreakable,’ Jackson’s latest executive move sees her pair up with British hitmaker Naughty Boy for rumoured new single ‘BURNITUP! (ft. Missy Elliott).’
Speaking with the UK’s Mirror newspaper this week, Naughty Boy revealed:
“I’m about to start work on a track with Janet featuring Missy Elliott. It’s set to be another massive collaboration. It’s very exciting times for the both of them.
I’m going to be remixing the track for the UK and I look forward to meeting up with Janet soon.”
The news comes on the heels of the producer’s success with recent Beyonce collaboration ‘Runnin’ (Lose It All).’
Needless to say, beyond being a smart play, we can’t wait to hear what they cook up. Janet’s success narrative precedes her, while Naughty Boy’s recent smashes with the likes of Sam Smith and Emeli Sande only heightens our excitement.
