Kaytranada On How COVID-19 Hindered His Contribution To Janet Jackson’s New Album

Published: Saturday 13th Mar 2021 by Sam

Janet Jackson excited fans in earnest last year when she announced her new album ‘Black Diamond’ and shared dates for a like-titled tour.

As fate would have it, the pandemic hit and took with it one creative’s chance to contribute to the hotly anticipated LP.

That creative being Kaytranada.

Full story below…

In an excerpt from the star’s new Elle Canada feature, it was revealed that the global health crisis marred his plans to work with Jackson. A point that is particularly notable given how viral he went his modern reimagining of her classic jam ‘If.’

“In January 2020, he was in discussion with Janet Jackson about working together on her forthcoming album. “It never went through,” he says. “She didn’t play games with COVID. She was talking about how it was going to take over the world.” And then it did.”

Here’s hoping the pair manage to collaborate sooner rather than later. They are such a sonic fit and a mesh of their sounds is exactly what we’re salivating for when it comes to ‘Black Diamond.’

    Janet & Kaytranada would be an interesting pairing. Particularly if she has some things to say lyrically coupled with his phenomenal beats. Hope something can still be worked out as the world slowly evolves into this “new” normal…

    I don’t like the remix posted above. IN fact I own the “If” remixes CD and I am not a fan. I LOVE ALL REMIXES from the Control album!!! I also love remixes of DIAMONDS, a Herb Alpert song with Janet’s vocal.

    Miss Jackson if ur nasty, how about an album produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis? All funky music please, a la Ryhthm Nation.
