Watch: More from Janet Jackson & Daddy Yankee’s ‘Made For Now’ Music Video [Behind the Scenes]

Published: Tuesday 31st Jul 2018 by Rashad

It’s a great time to be Janet Jackson right now.

At 52, the pop icon is proving herself to be hot as ever with a whirlwind touring itinerary, headlining a number of world renown festivals (including ‘Essence Festival’ and a recent stop at New York City’s ‘Panorama Festival’ as we reported here), and now the filming of a new music video.

As we reported here last week, the song – titled ‘Made For Now’ – is believed to be one of many gems set to line the Pop royal’s new album (the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Unbreakable’).  Featuring rapper Daddy Yankee, ‘Made’ has yet to be officially announced by members of the artists’ respective camps, but with behind the scenes footage of its accompanying Dave Meyers-helmed video shoot unearthed (including new footage seen after the jump), it’s clear the release is imminent!

Keen to see more of what Mama Jackson is cooking up on set?  It awaits inside:

    She is an ICON. Janet. Aretha. Madonna. Mariah. Celine. Patti. Gladys. Gloria Estefan. all should be celebrated and adored and protected. Cherished.

  2. 👧 + ✈ = 💀 July 31, 2018

    • Jj July 31, 2018

      Ciara hired white dance crew wearing hip hop clothes and hair. Now janet hiring a latin rapper for african themed music. I cant with our self hatred today. These races are notorious for excluding us and calling us names. Watch telemundo smh

        Y’all ain’t even heard the song. STFU y’all are so retárdèd and dumb.

      • Tom August 11, 2018

        Its not self hatred…its about getting her career back on track. Daddy Yankee is HUGE… she needs a radio hit. Radio blacklisted her and this is an attempt to get back to where she should be. Stop trying to turn this into a racial thing. Has NOTHING to do with her blackness.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ July 31, 2018

      Further to show how dumb you are, Ciara’s dance crew had Latin, white, Asian, mixed heritage and black girls in them. Those are not Ciara’s hand picked dancers those are the choreographers dance crew. Ciara met them the day before the shoot. U just sound like an idiot tbh

      • I said what I said July 31, 2018

        I’m still looking for those black dancers in Ciara’s video…okay…and your rude with your responses 👎🏿

      • JJ July 31, 2018

        No, SHE HAD A CASTING FOR AFROBEATS. Featuring a race that is notorious ANTI AFRICAN is a bad move. Do you leave or work amongst Latinos? Wake up.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) July 31, 2018

      Everything is not about race. According to your logic, if you are black you can only work with black musicians and black dancers. Everyone does not and should not subscribe to your racist ideology.

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) July 31, 2018

        Hocus you dumb ass everyone on here knows I model, I am popular on instagram, and I am successful in business. Are you jealous? You can’t provide a receipt of something I already provided and everyone already knows. Keep trying queen.. I model couture too…too bad you can’t afford it broke queen.

    • pat July 31, 2018

      janet has a black female media strategist, put black plus size female dancers on display first, has a black female trainer…i can go on and on… calm down sus

    • Martaevia La’wayne July 31, 2018

      Why does race matter? That’s so stupid! If you’re talented then you’re talented and no one can take that away no matter what race. Smh

      • JJ July 31, 2018

        YAWN! I said what I said. I do not stand for appropriation.

    • Tom August 11, 2018

      Sorry, but no one in mainstream know the artists you mentioned. Daddy Yankee is an international mega star. Which one do you think will make more of a splash on mainstream radio?

  5. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ July 31, 2018

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) July 31, 2018

      Jealous. You should get out there and do something instead of hating on others. They are living their lives. Are you?

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ July 31, 2018
