It’s been eight years since Janet Jackson released a full length album, but the day is finally here as Unbreakable is officially in-stores and available for digital download (and sitting #1 on iTunes Pop Charts currently!). To celebrate the album’s release, Ms. Jackson premiered the lyric video for “BURNITUP!,” a club banger that features the incomparable Missy Elliott.
For the lyric video, Ms. Jackson enlisted her dancers, tour crew, bodyguard, and even fans to display lyrics to the song via hand written cards/posters. And yes, a giddy Ms. Jackson makes a few cameos throughout the video along with tons of backstage concert footage. The lyric video is an fun, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the crew’s life on the road during the Unbreakable tour.
Without question, Unbreakable is proving to be one of the more personal projects Ms. Jackson has released in recent years and we can all thank her longtime collaborators and friends Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for helping to bring the vision to life.
