Janet Jackson, ‘Nothing’ — Video Premiere
The R&B superstar’s newest video for ‘Nothing’ encompasses the message of the song, with a stark blackness acting as a backdrop to Jackson‘s emotional release. The song is featured in Tyler Perry’s newest flick ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ The film, which is a sequel to the original, stars Jackson as a woman struggling through the hardships of marriage.
In the song ‘Nothing,’ Jackson sings about the ups and downs that occur when two people are in love. The overall message is that when it comes to love, nothing can stand in the way of making things right. Directed by Tim Palen, the video features several shots of Jackson in mirror-like projections accompanied by powerful and passionate clips from the film.
Jackson — who is still coping with the loss of her brother Michael — drew inspiration from her grief for her theatrical performance. ‘Nothing’ also reflects the deep pain Jackson has felt over the past few months — transferring her sorrow beautifully into a moving and deeply heartfelt ballad.
