Queen of R&B, Janet Jackson, is back with “No Sleeep”, her first new song in six years.

Miss Jackson is clearly sticking to an area she is very comfortable with here: Sultry baby-making music. Produced by longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the slow-burner opens with the sounds of a rainstorm (think “Any Time, Any Place“) before it hits us with a plush, thumping beat.
“48 hours of love / It’s gonna be a weekend marathon / So you better get ready my king / Cause I’m gonna be the Queen of Insomnia” Janet is definitely going deep and getting no sleeep. This song would fit well on a sexy date-night playlist between “I Get Lonely” and the more uptempo “Throb“.
Listen to the song above!
“No Sleeep” will be released at midnight EDT (June 23) on iTunes.
