We first got a taste of Janet and Missy‘s collaboration “BURNITUP!” when Janet launched her Unbreakable World Tour weeks ago. And now, the highly anticipated track is finally here in its full mastered glory as a special treat before her 11th LP Unbreakable drops next week (October 2).
Produced by Thomas Lumpkins, Jimmy Jam, Dem Jointz and Terry Lewis, “BURNITUP!” is exactly what one would expect to come from two legends who have brought us an endless supply of dance smashes over the years. It’s a straight-up club banga all about turning it up, dancing, and burning it up . . on the dance floor (of course). “When the DJ play this we gon’ dance like no one’s watching/ Hey Mr DJ, bump the track and won’t you turn it up?/ I’ma dance all night and I don’t care who’s out there watching us/ Just give me that fire and I’m gonna show you how to burn it up.”
It’s pretty simple – literally anyone could’ve written those lyrics, but there’s really nothing better than having two legends together on a hot fiya booty poppin’ jam, and that’s exactly what we have here. I say WIN – Happy Friday y’all!
