The visual is an homage to MJ’s music video for his early ’90s hit “Remember the Time.”
The original video starred Eddie Murphy and Iman as Egyptian monarchs.
In Janet’s version, the singer plays a gilded royal who oversees dancing auditions performed by eager fans.
Jackson’s latest single with Daddy Yannkee, “Made for Now” plays in the background.
The video was made in collaboration with Kwaylon “BlameItOnKway” Rogers, Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, and Diamond Batiste.

Ever since Michael passed away in June 2009, his music has lived on in more ways than one.
In fact, the Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage announced earlier this summer that they are developing a stage production based on the King of Pop’s life.
The musical is expected to debut in 2020 and comes after the estate worked with Cirque du Soleil to launch Michael Jackson One at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
As for Janet, the Grammy winner continues making new music and performing across the country. This September, the “All for You” singer will perform at the Global Citizen Festival and have additional shows in Atlantic City and Connecticut.
