New Song: Janet Jackson – ‘Made For Now [Latin Version] (ft. Daddy Yankee)’

Published: Tuesday 27th Nov 2018 by Sam

As one of the world’s biggest superstars, Janet Jackson is fittingly taking a global approach with current single ‘Made For Now.’

Originally unleashed this summer, the song and its video received praise aplenty and, at 50 million views, has re-integrated the diva in the current musical mix.

Now, Ms. Jackson is cranking things up a notch with the arrival of an all-new Latin version.

Daddy Yankee joins J in an expanded role, which sees the pair trade verses on the new flavorsome take of the dance jam.

Listen below…


In a time when songs such as ‘Despacito’ have bulldozed the language barrier and dominated on a global scale, this could actually do something. Maybe even more than the original.

Whatever the case, kudos to Janet for veering out of the box with this one. We remain buzzed for what’s to come in the New Year.

      I LOVE this song and I LOVE this version!!!!!!! This is hot!

    Big Janet fan but this is kind of a fail. It’s time to move on from “Made for Now.” It doesn’t help that Daddy Yankee is a Republican and is merely a fraction of the star that Janet is. Perhaps a Janet & Ciara collar is due?

        Daddy Yankee has yet to address his support for a Republican candidate in 2008. Some ppl just have moved past the issue and forgotten because it was a while ago. bUT its still questionable af for him to have done so and if I were Janet, I would’ve steered clear of him

        Politics has nothing to do with music ability. Beyonce performed for Bush’s Republican inauguration and she got no backlash. You are acting like being Republican is the equivalent of being a murderer or p*** when it is not. It is your choice to join or endorse whatever political party you want to.

      • Candy Nitez November 27, 2018

        But his music is mediocre at best and Destinys Child performing for Bush in 2001 isn’t even comparable to his entire endorsement of McCain in 2008. Political affiliation is more than just a choice, it’s a public declaration of your values and where you stand on American and international issues. I’m sure DC got paid to perform while Yankee actually DONATED money to McCains campaign. There are things that flew back in 2001 that didn’t fly in 2008 and certainly won’t in this political climate. If it were as simple as you say it is, no one would’ve condemned Daddy Yankee for his personal “choice.”

        I get your point but I also see the reality of what took place. Daddy Yankee is not that educated nor was he a thriving artist in 2008. He had one hit song total. Now, his team tried to use the election to boost his career. They approached Obama’s team first for a celebrity endorsement and got turned down so they went with McCain. Daddy was holding on to his career by a straw because he was really just a one hit wonder. Fast forward to present day and he got another hit called Despocito this year after that bad decision regarding McCain cooled down. I do not think it is fair to punish people their whole careers for a stupid mistake. This is ten years later and I am ready to forgive. Why can’t you forgive?

      The song and vocals are tired. Love Janet and her Icon status — but this was weak

      • daclassyman November 27, 2018

        Bye… move one with your weak comment

    I’m ready for the impending album orEP or whatever mutha decides to give us! I’ve heard some great things about it and I can’t wait! I also love this nod to her rhythm nation era! Its always great to see the new artists show love and pay homage to the greats!

    Go head Queen Janet


    What about daddy? The child abuser where are his award you not sht without daddy..

    • High Price November 27, 2018

      Trick! STFU! You say this in every post about her..

  6. eric November 27, 2018

    Neither version was made for me, but perhaps it will work some way in Janet’s favor. Time for the new album.

  7. Gee November 27, 2018

    This song never really grabbed my attention but nonetheless I am grateful that Janet is still around and doing her thing.

    This has been still trying give it grandma, Rihanna will be back soon to save music, as she always do

    • Rasputia Latimore Is ANNOYED by GUTTER TRASH F.AGGOT ‘JasMAN Da Bi Asian’ Talking to her every day! November 27, 2018

      Shut up. Rihanna is great at 30. Janet was BETTER at 30. They do not even make similar music nor do they belong in the same sentence. You would NEVER hear white people whining about Britney, Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Madonna making music because they are not similar at all. You lowkey stan for everything Janet which is why you are on ALL of her posts! Go restrict yourself to RiRi posts is you are so bothered.

      • Caleb November 28, 2018

        Actually I hear whyte people say all the time that “Madonna should retire. She’s too old.” They’ve been saying that since she was 42!

  9. The Truth November 27, 2018

    Why do her vocals sound like a robot here? Is this her “new” voice … a robot?


  10. John November 27, 2018

    I can’t understand jack all of what she says in the original song other than “made for now”. Thank God I know spanish and I can at least understand what DY is saying. Was Janet drunk when she sang this?

  11. dee November 27, 2018

    The song was kinda cute but its now time to move on.

    • Rasputia Latimore Is ANNOYED by GUTTER TRASH F.AGGOT ‘JasMAN Da Bi Asian’ Talking to her every day! November 27, 2018

      I agree. I think she should record some songs like Anytime Anyplace, I Get Lonely, and Miss U Much.

  12. Selah November 27, 2018

    Song is WACK……..

    • Rasputia Latimore Is ANNOYED by GUTTER TRASH F.AGGOT ‘JasMAN Da Bi Asian’ Talking to her every day! November 27, 2018

      It charted at #1 on the dance charts and still gets radio play. The video has over 50 million views. It’s a great song. I just wish her vocal delivery was not so autotuned.

  13. High Price November 27, 2018

    Well… I’m excited! I love it too!

  14. madbrax November 27, 2018

    girl bye, hang it up.

  15. Ropeburn November 27, 2018

    It’s cute but it should have been released back in August when the original came out. It might do something in the Latin music market. Who knows? I just hope she moves on from this song and doesn’t try to squeeze a whole year’s worth of performances out of it. Thank you, next!

  16. Keith November 27, 2018

    I like this and bought a copy, but Im not sure about the timing. At this point, they should just try to get it licensed for commercials. This should have been released closer to the original. Janet keeps quietly working, though, and for that I’m grateful…
