"Sometimes, I still have to pinch myself when I call her…because she is still Janet Jackson!" Missy Elliott said in a statement.
We know what you’ll be listening to on repeat this weekend.
E! Online reports that Janet Jackson and Missy Elliott have teamed up and released the hottest new collabo of the year, “BURNITUP!”
“Working with Janet is unbelievable,” Misdemeanor said in a statement. “Although we are great friends and have been for so long, I am still her biggest fan. 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.”
The record dropped last night, though Janet has been performing the song, which features a verse by Missy, on her Unbreakable World Tour.
We think we can all agree that a collaboration between these two legendary artists is long overdue!
