The song — which features Drake, features a sample of Janet’s 1994 hit “Anytime, Anyplace” and the song is named after the film that Janet starred in with Tupac Shakur. In an interview with MTV News, he said, “Yeah, she heard the message, so we’re still crossing our fingers right now. She heard it, she heard it.”
He continued, “That’s crazy to me to know that they’re aware of the music, but they’re actually listening to it and they can actually get something that I write on Twitter and everybody else around the world will spread it to them if I can’t reach it. That’s the powerful part about social media and the Net in general.”
