J. Cole Wakes Up Janet Jackson’s ‘No Sleeep’ Remix
Over the original slow-grinding beat, Ms. Jackson coos about a 48-hour love marathon with her devoted boo. "You better get ready my king / 'Cause I'm going to be the queen of insomnia," she sings.
Then the R&B icon name-drops “Cole World” and the North Cackalacky rapper delivers lyrics about their complicated love affair and suggests that maybe they should just be “friends with benefits."
"Our time together has inspired a song or two or three / Or four, or more, mi amor, I’m sure / Either you’re the one or I’m caught in the matrix / Staying up for hours while we talk and get wasted / Not from weed smoke or this cheap wine / Drunk off love we both feel deep down," he raps.
According to Billboard, Janet and J. Cole recorded the remix in Los Angeles about two weeks ago. The remix will appear on the "Control" singer's first album in over seven years, which is still untitled. The collection is due to hit stores in September via Rhythm Nation Records/BMG.
