Video: Janet Jackson feat. J. Cole - 'No Sleeep (Remix)'
Recently, Janet Jackson unveiled the visuals for 'No Sleeep.'
The clip, directed by Dave Meyers, opens up with the singer bundled up, as it rains on her windowpane. Janet makes her way through the house, as she stands in front of a childhood photo with her father, Joe Jackson. After dancing up the staircase, she heads to the bedroom before meeting J. Cole.
I didn't expect this, though I think it captures the mood well for the single. As I had said previously, the single is a sultry, quiet storm tune from Janet. Of course, during the first watch I was a little underwhelmed as I had expected more from the singer, but the video blends well with the single's sound. It's raining outside, the candles are lit, the singer is chilling around her house. Very simplistic, and laid-back. I would've loved to see more choreography from the singer, instead of just the staircase scene, though that remains one of my favorite scenes.
I think the singer looked very alluring, especially in the scene with the red light surrounding the room. Overall, still a smooth video, and it suits the vibe of the single very well.
