Janet Jackson and Missy Elliott collaborated on a new single called “BURNITUP!” that was released on Thursday. The song will appear on Janet Jackson’s upcoming album, “Unbreakable,” due out on October 2nd.
“Working with Janet is unbelievable. Although we are great friends and have been for so long, I am still her biggest fan,” Missy Elliott said in a statement.
“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. I’m humbled whenever she asks because she inspires and continues to inspire me, always!” she added.
