When I penned the article of Janet's top ten songs, this was my number one, and for good reason. Here's what I wrote about the song back then:
This irresistible charmer from 1991 was an unprecedented fifth Top Five single off of the previous year's "Rhythm Nation" album. Coupled with the typical Minneapolis sounds made popular by Prince, (taken to further heights by Prince alum and the album's producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis), and Janet's nasally vocals, was a memorable black and white video (produced by Herb Ritts) and featuring Antonio Sabato Jr. and Djimon Hounsou, two popular male models of the time. The video was stylistically produced and is as memorable as the song.
If any of you were around back in 1991, there's no way you don't know (and probably love!) this song. Unfortunately, there weren't many links to the original video out there, and the best one I did find is a little grainy. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
