      I’m almost certain it is. I’m sure this isn’t coincidental. Janet isn’t playing

      • Highbrowthis February 11, 2020

        I agree. This is almost confirmation that there will be a duet between Janet and Bruno. She certainly isnt playing tho this time around. Bruno alone will get her all the buzz she needs
