As crude as it is, few events could have propelled the Jackson clan back into popular culture more than the death of Michael. Janet could have used the re-founded popularity to rush release a Lady Gaga inspired electro-pop EP. Luckily, she didn’t, and the resulting track is ‘Heartbeat Love’ which features vocals from Pitbull, Machel Montano and Rock City (nope, I haven’t heard of the last two ever either).
The track is produced by R&B producing genius Darkchild (Lady GaGa’s ‘Telephone’, Destiny Child’s ‘Lose My Breath’, MJ’s ‘You Rock My World’, PCD’s ‘When I Grow Up’) and quite put, is utterly fantastic.
Unlike anything she has ever released before, ‘Heartbeat Love’ has a definite Latin-American influence and it a certain club banger. There don’t appear to be any plans to release this as a single YET, but if you go on Darkchild’s website, you can download the track in its entirety for free, legally.
