Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee

Pop icon Janet Jackson and rapper Daddy Yankee team up for Janet's bilingual dance track "Made For Now". The music video was filmed on location in New York City.

The video is filmed in segments that blend together in one seamless camera take, similar to Janet's music video for her 1986 hit single "When I Think of You", off her third studio album, Control.

The video features women, men and children dressed in vibrant clothing having a blast at a street party, while Janet weaves effortlessly around them.

"Made For Now" is Janet's first track since 2016’s “Dammn Baby,” Featuring Daddy Yankee. The track will be featured on Janet's as yet untitled forthcoming album off her new label Cinq Music.

  • what?why

    Janet's clothing is giving me Beyonce vibes.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Janet has done it again with the innovation,talent,sultry vocals,natural beauty,dance and unique style. This song is FIRE! Another Number One hit for her endless set record of catalog of hits in EVERY decade. I will FOREVER support her and lucky enough to have worked with her and she's still just as humble.

  • Nik

    I bet her ex looked at this video and said, "Cotdayummit, I let that get away??" Yes sir, you did.

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Alrighty Ms. Jackson.......

  • Eileen

    She is trying to catch up from her 5 years of imprisonment!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I'm not feeling the first pic of Janet. I felt better as I moved down the line though. The song is more her style. I do want her to take those cheek implants out so her face moves more when she sings. I'm probably asking for too much huh?

  • Nik

    Talk about it!

  • Coy little wink

    I am loving these eclectic colorful ensembles as opposed to those black baggy potato sack looks she wore with that ex hubby...welcome back Ms. Jackson ???

  • WhoKnew

    You're right. I watched the video again and her face is not moving that much and those implants seem to be the culprit. You betta not say that out loud tho because @KoolMusic who declares he knows EVERYBODY will go in on you for talking about his "don't nobody say nuffin about Janet" boo thang. But I liked the video and the song.

  • Anunnaki

    I like it, got that salsa feel

  • pure_rachet

    I loved it. The video looked so fun to film!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    This song made me feel good. It made me want to dance. It made me appreciate the now, not just tomorrow. I think Janet has a hit!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Everyone looked gorgeous!

  • Qiana Wilson

    That would be the other way around

  • WhoKnew

    It is a nice feel good song. Classic Janet style.

  • Li-Wright

    Is it me or is Janet looking like Lil Kim?
    JJ is now going Reggaeton?
    Good song, at least I can hear and understand what she's singing :) Which is "Made for now".
    I think her costumer is going to get the most notice, those costumes are smoking. After listening more it sounds like something JLO would sing.

  • Coy little wink

    Its you..lil Kim don't even look like lil Kim

  • the guest

    The spirit of the song and vibrant colors reminds me of Lionel Richie's classic All Night Long video. Janet's video is beautiful.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL
  • KLo

    love it

  • Li-Wright

    She looks like Lil Kim.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Mmm... that's an interesting and keen observation. Now that I think of it, the video does have a modern twist on Lionel's classic video.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    It's YOU! NOT EVEN A COMPARISON... JUST COULDN'T GIVE HER A COMPLIMENT and KEEP IT pushing! Smh

  • Dahl

    I’m glad the 50+ gals like Janet and JLo still have a lane. I like this, and Daddy Yankee can make any song even hotter...

  • Renee Bee

    That part!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    New music vs recycled just to get paid... (Ahem unlike Bey/Jay)

  • hottlanta

    You are a vaporer who smoke fake cigarettes and think you are not gonna get cancer.

  • tia

    Lol!!!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I like it......

  • IamAllnatural

    Beyonce has never worn that much clothing. Maybe if Janet had on a leotard then I’ll agree.

  • IamAllnatural

    Everything except the natural beauty!

  • IamAllnatural

    Janet still looks great. This is a fun song that’s easy to understand, unlike the other new stuff.

  • Junkanoo

    Her style game is ferocious .Thank you Janet for helping to redefine being in one's 50s making it look hip.The video reminds of Got Till Its Gone with Q-Tip a classic .

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Whew Chile I'm loving this fun song Ms. JJ!!

    "Made for now???????Everybodaday move ya bodday??Made for now?????Not tomorrow????Move ya bodday??Made for now???Look around???Made for now??Not tomorrow????

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    I love ALL the dancing in this video. The visual is stunning. The song is good too. But the dancing ??? and the wardrobe???

  • Real Talk With Kizzy Rock

    Age is just a number!! When you are going through hell, you look like hell and when you are happy, you look happy! Janet looks great!!! Keep pushing my friends!!

  • Kayke

    I dont think theyre implants.....Joe had those same high pointy cheek bone .She does look like she had botox

  • Peace

    All them rags and clothes. I don't J. Aimt no fountain of youth. Left the young artist or pass the baton. I caught her show in San Diego last year. She basically stood still walked and at times a cardio workout.

    Janet and Ciara need to evolve. Tell a story create a movie in music or onstage in videos.

    Beyonce just slay. SalutetonBlackness at Coachella then went Apeshit. Beyonce stay creative.
    Its a no for me. Love J though.

  • Solstice

    ????!! ??

  • ~~eb

    I will be incorporating this in my Zumba class for sure!

  • Kimocha

    Love It! Love Her! She looks so wonderful for her age... and I like her style....she's always been amazing and incomparable.... I gotta go try and see her in concert before it's too late.... Like it's too late for me to see so many other greats... It's a must to see Janet and Beyonce for me...

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    If I had not seen the video I don't think I would have like the song. I have to say this people went on and on about Beyonce so called Visual Album. This video put them all to rest . Everything about this video was right from her looks to the Bold and vibrant colors and patterns. Good job Janet. This was an awesome come back

  • TransMichelle

    I like this. Janet is a mother and a mature woman. She don't need to be wearing clothing with her ass and tits out. Very respectful video and nice song. Good going Janet.

  • Ozad

    why do we drag Lil Kim about her nose job, but give Janet a pass?

  • Miss Thang

    Boring Beyonce ?

  • Marlika

    I can’t stand that bullshit reggaeton and I refuse to listen or support this crap!!????

    Janet’s needs to stop making this new b.s and just tour off of her hits. ???????

  • Phillybruh

    you didnt go to No Janet show on this current tour and she just stood still..lol

  • datjerk

    No one drags Kim over her nose jobs. We drag her for alllll the work shes had done when she was fine the way she was...plus some how shes an Asian woman now.

  • Tee

    I'm sorry....this song is horrible.

  • ?? ?ee?? ???

    She performed somewhere recently and I swear she just mumbled and whispered through the entire song

  • Logan Roberts

    Janet face is pulled tighter than my belt on my pants.

  • Trace da Ace

    congrats on her comeback....that is all I have...its monday.

  • brendah

    Exactly! The entire family have those cheeks that they inherited from their father.

  • JENNYJONES1

    B/C JANET HAD MULTIPLE NOSE JOBS(LAST ONE WAS BAD) BUT KEPT THE REST OF HER FACE. LIL KIM MESSED UP HER ENTIRE FACE OVER & OVER AGAIN. SHE UNRECOGNIZABLE. HER NOSE IS JUST THE CENTRAL PROBLEM WITH LIL KIM'S FACE BUT IT'S ALL BAD AND SHE'S 12 SHADES LIGHTER TO BOOT. EWW!!!.........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    DANG I WAS THINKING THE SAME THING. ARTIST THINK IF THEY PUT A REGGAE, AFRICAN AND/OR HISPANIC BEAT AND RAP ON A SONG AND PRETTY IT UP WITH BLACK CULTURE ATTIRE THEN WE'RE INSTANTLY SOLD. NOT!!!! AND THE WARDROBE WAS HORRIBLE ...........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    SORRY BUT IT JUST ALL SEEMS FORCED. THE REGGAETON, THE LATIN RAPPER AND RAP, THE MASSIVE OVER DRESSED OUTFITS ESP ON JANET AND THE FAST DANCING IT ALL JUST DIDN'T MESH FOR ME AND SEEMS FORCED............JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    JANET CAN STILL DANCE LIKE CRAZY BUT IN THIS VIDEO I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE DANCED SOLO B/C IN THE MIDDLE OF THOSE OTHER DANCERS SHE LOOKED SLOW AND OLD; BY HERSELF THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANYONE TO COMPARE HER TOO AND SHE WOULD'VE JUST SLAYED..........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    I CAN'T STAND HER EYEBROWS AND NOSTRILS BUT SHE'S STILL PRETTY AS HELL.......JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Phillybruh

    I don't think this was to recapture her black audience this was to get the mainstream audience back. And its working the song is Number 10 on billboard after 3days. The festivals weren't for her black audience maybe essence was but the others were for the younger demo. And kudos to her team because she killed panorama had all those white kids singing along.

  • the guest

    Both videos have beautiful African tributes. Janet wears the African Inspired Garb and remember Lionel Richie had the African music/dance segment in the video.

  • the guest

    And Dancehall too. Reallly nice song for dancing.

  • sjames

    her recent pics she looks like her old self. I think she just had her makeup artists drawing on Asian face. but now that her daughter is getting older (and looking very much like a lighter version of the old Kim) she is adjusting how she presents herself.

  • Peace

    She is slow and old. Tracking towards 60. She used a stool in San Diego and walked and sizzled slowly on her dance tracks. Good show but her dancing at 50 on stage played out.
    Ciara need to sitvher ass down half naked all the time. Record do shows and videos but act your age.
