Watch Janet Jackson pay tribute to her brother Michael in new video

The singer's tribute references her late brother's clip for 'Remember The Time'

Janet Jackson posted a short video in honour of her late brother Michael Jackson on what would have been the King of Pop’s 60th birthday yesterday (August 29).

The minute-long clip can be seen below, and sees Janet sat at a throne judging dancing auditions while the music of her recent single ‘Made For Now’ plays in the background.

The clip is a tribute to her brother’s 1992 video for ‘Remember The Time’, which starred Iman and Eddie Murphy as Egyptian royalty, with Jackson as a dancer trying to impress the queen.

Janet Jackson also uploaded a short snippet of the new video to her Instagram, mentioning the clip’s directors Diamond and Kway as well as Daddy Yankee, who appears on the single.

‘Made For Now’, which has its own separate music video, is Jackson’s first new material since 2015’s Unbreakable.

She performed the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which marked her first live television appearance  in fourteen years.

Last month, Jackson paid emotional tribute to her late father Joe during her first show since his death.

Joe Jackson died on June 27 following a battle with cancer. The family’s patriarch, who managed Janet, her brother Michael, and the Jackson 5, was 89.

“Quite honestly, it was really hard for me,” Jackson reportedly told the crowd. “I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know how to move forward, if I should cancel this festival or cancel the entire tour.”
