Janet Jackson To Perform New Single ‘Made For Now’ On ‘Fallon’ / Music Video Details Revealed

Published: Monday 13th Aug 2018 by Sam

Janet Jackson is lining up a week of excitement for the launch of her new jam ‘Made For Now.’

The Harmony Samuels production serves as the first taste of fresh material from the megastar in over three years and she’s treating its release like the event it is.

Fresh from announcing its release and unveiling its cover, Jackson has revealed that the cut’s Dave Meyers directed video will arrive simultaneously (on August 17th).

And, as if that wasn’t titillating enough, she’ll be taking to the stage on a major platform on the same day to perform the song alongside Daddy Yankee.

Details below…

In a press release issued moments ago, it was confirmed that this Friday Jackson will be taking to the stage on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to perform the track.

‘Made For Now’ encourages people to enjoy their lives and seize opportunities today, not worry or wait until tomorrow.

Sonically, it’s touted as being inspired by Janet’s personal love of music from around the globe.

For its Brooklyn shot visual, fans will be transported to a neighborhood dance party filled with cameos from a multitude of international dancers from Ghana, Nigeria, Grenada, Trinidad and the US. All of whom who were hand selected by Janet and her longtime Creative Director Gil Duldulao.


We’re all sorts of buzzed! Song, video, and performance all on the same day?!

After a somewhat tour-focal promo of 2015’s ‘Unbreakable,’ this feels like a welcome return to the all-out, no stone unturned approach promo that Janet herself helped pioneer in the 90s.

Suffice to say, roll on Friday!

    This is incredible! I am shocked she is releasing new music about 3 years since her last album. She is notorious for having huge gaps between albums. I know she will deliver something great.

    A commented above said she is notorious for having huge gaps between her albums but that’s not true. She only started that after the super bowl fallout

    I’m so happy that our Legends are still performing and putting out music and I pray that this is something that will put Janet back on top of the charts or at least the top 10. and in addition to this new single and performance and video, the MTV Video Music Awards will air on the 20th, if I was on Janet’s team that award show would be a great platform for her to perform at as well

    I’m here for it! I’m glad that Janet & Ciara have gotten back to what we know & love them for which is their incredible dancing & performing skills. I hope that this song at least becomes a top 20 hit for her. I also hope that Kendrick Lamar & Bruno Mars will also be featured on her upcoming album.

    So excited! Love Janet. This is how music used to make the listeners feel — the anticipation gets the fans going. I can’t wait to see and hear the new era of Ms Janet Jackson. 🙂
