You'd be officially a HATER if you aren't the least bit excited about Janet Jackson's new music video "So Excited" from the highly anticipated cd 20Y.O.
Yesterday BET premiered the new video on "Access Granted." Janet reunited with director Joseph Kahn for not only an homage to her past music video legacy but also to continue to trailblaze in the artform by incorporating a new x-ray technology never before used by the director.
Fuck Hype Williams. This precisely the type of video fans are accustomed to from Janet; a highly stylized, forward-thinking, envelope-pushing unique visual experience with a sex appeal only Ms. Jackson can deliver. A sex appeal that is no doubtedly the point of reference for up and coming sex sirens like Ciara, Beyonce, Lil Kim and Ashanti.
After seeing the premiere of "So Excited," there is no doubt every step team, aspiring dancer, voguer, choreographer and talent show contestant will be trying to recreate the choreography for their own presentations. AHHHH! Take that and rewind it back!
And while you are still at the water cooler talking about Whitney Houston filing for divorce, we were compiling our

4. Robin Thicke feat. Faith Evans - "Got 2 Be Down"
3. Tank - "Freaky"

Y'all got the album by now.
1. Danity Kane- "Right Now"
And in case you haven't seen my interview with Danity Kane check it out. They do a hot acapella to "Ride With You" at the end.
Lastly, since we were talking about remixes earlier this week. One of my favorite bootleg remixes is Alicia Key's "Karma" remixed with Stevie Wonder's "Superstition". Have a listen.
