Janet, Daddy, and a slew of fabulously dressed, multi-cultural dancers show off their funky dance moves as they party down in Brooklyn. And, oh, if only this had come out earlier in the season, it could have been THE summer bop. It feels slightly like it’s all chorus, but WHO CARES? It’s Janet, returning to form, doing what she does best – making perfect pop music and looking adorably bad-ass.
Jackson and director Dave Meyers have selected an international dance crew, who hail from Ghana, Nigeria, Grenada, Trinidad and the U.S. to populate the streets, rooftops, apartment and various other locales here and trust me, the dancing is pure bliss and brings to mind classic Janet videos “When I Think of You,” “Escapade,” “That’s the Way Love Goes” and “Runaway.”
“Living for the moment/ Don’t stop/ Celebrate the feeling/ Go up,” Jackson sings. “If you’re living for the moment, don’t stop.”
“We’re made for now/ Not tomorrow,” she sings on the chorus. “Made for now/ Look around/ We’re made for now.”
Daddy Yankee beckons, “Everybody, move your body, everybody,” while Jackson intersperses his lines with “we’re made for now.”
Do I…. suddenly think Daddy Yankee is hot? 2018 just gets crazier and crazier….
