Entitled ‘BURNITUP! (feat. Missy Elliott)’, the song is currently setting up at Rhythmic and Pop radio formats.
“Working with Janet is unbelievable. Although we are great friends and have been for so long, I am still her biggest fan,” says Missy Elliott. “Sometimes, I still have to pinch myself when I call her and she picks up the phone or texts me because she is still Janet Jackson! The superstar that I would run to the TV to watch her videos and dance moves, so for me I’m honored to be on any Janet record. I’m humbled whenever she asks because she inspires and continues to inspire me, always!”
“It is always great to work with friends and Missy is a dear friend. It was only natural for the two of us to record a song together. We had a great time and we hope you guys enjoy it,” says Ms. Jackson.
“Janet and Missy working together is a case of one plus one equaling ten,” say legendary producers/songwriters Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who re-teamed with Janet on Unbreakable.
