TOTD: Janet Jackson & Missy Elliott – “BURNITUP!”
INCOMING! Janet Jackson has set fire to the world with a thumping uptempo track.”BURNITUP!” is a slice of dance heaven. A man’s voice shouting for the track to burn the house up, escalates the situation to Missy Elliott introducing and hyping fans up for Jackson’s new sound and style. A one-eighty from previous released songs, “No Sleeep” and ” Unbreakable,” Jackson’s latest track has the dance floor well worn and in dire need of remodeling. The hypnotic sounds are matched evenly with a distorted post-chorus. Having debuted on Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour, the track is the latest offering of what’s to come from Unbreakable (out October 2nd!).
The singer’s latest LP is the first since 2008’s Discipline. Not only did she keep listeners mellowed out with “No Sleeep” and the title track, there was a surge of interest and enthusiasm in reviving the star’s musical career. As for the collaboration between Jackson and Elliott, the actress and rapper have been longtime friends and fans of each other’s work with Elliott last featuring prominently on Jackson’s 2001 single, “Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)” and on Discipline‘s “The 1.”
Catch Janet Jackson on her world tour, with the show starting off with this bangin’ track of the day! And be sure to hear Naughty Boy‘s remix of it soon!
