J. Cole joins the legendary Janet Jackson on the official remix to her single “No Sleeep,” which is currently No. 5 on Billboard’s Adult R&B airplay chart. After Janet shouts out “Cole World,” the Roc Nation rapper provides some stimulation with a charismatic verse about “friends with benefits” and even references Janet’s brother (“Butterflies like MJ”).
On Sunday, Miss Jackson was spotted with her girlfriends at Cole’s “Forest Hills Drive” show at L.A.’s Staples Center.
According to Billboard, the two recorded the remix in an L.A. studio two weeks ago. The remix is set to appear on Janet’s first album in seven years, due in late September on Rhythm Nation Records/BMG.
The pop icon will kick off her “Unbreakable Tour” on Aug. 31 in Vancouver. She and director Dave Meyers recently reunited to work on some visuals.
