Not literally you perverts (lol). For those of you who are lovers of 80’s music, you probably realize I am talking about the song Janet recorded back in 1987 with Lisa Keith. The song actually appeared on Herb Alpert’s album and was a monster hit on R n’ B radio, even though I don’t believe it was ever released as a single. Well some 20 years later Janet and Mariah Carey forums are running rampant with rumors of Janet re-recording this song with Mariah. If the rumors are true, this is obviously the brainchild of Jermaine Dupri who has been trying to get the two divas in the studio together for some time now.
I admit when rumors of a Janet- Mariah callabo were first introduced I balked at the idea. Vocally the two singers are miles apart and not in Janet’s favor. However, MLITR would be the perfect song for these two ladies to record together. The song is absolutely beautiful and would be an instant crossover hit- making waves on pop radio as it did on R n’ B stations so many years ago.
I’m sure many of you have heard the song by now but for those of you who haven’t, I found a clip of it on Radio Blog here.
I just got my hands on new pics of Janet and Mariah. Janet attended a Grammy event to celebrate producer Jimmy Jam being added to the board. While Mariah attended a stamp ceremony designed to highlight the importance of jury duty.
