Janet Jackson's First Video In For, Like, Ever Is Finally Here

If we didn't know better, we'd say it was 1993. Janet Jackson has a new video out, and she's looking as young and beautiful as ever. My, how we've missed her.

The 49-year-old singer has already released a lyrics video for "No Sleeep," her first single in seven years. Today she unveiled the official music video, which, in true Miss Jackson form, is sexy as hell, without being over the top. Given that the song itself oozes seduction, it's only fitting that the video — a collaboration with J. Cole — brings some heat of its own.

Shot in what appears to be the pop icon's home — judging by the family photos — the video shows a gorgeous Jackson making her way to the bedroom, as she croons about missing her lover. Nobody does a coy smile better.

Did we mention that this is her first video since 2010? Talk about a return to form.
