Janet Jackson commemorated her late brother's birthday with a recreation of one of his biggest hits, "Remember the Time." She was joined by two comedic sensations in the video.


The 52-year-old shared the video to TMZ. It stars Kwaylon Rogers and King Bach. Rogers, better known as @BlameItOnKway, has 3.6 million Instagram followers.

Janet and Kway met at the Billboard Awards earlier this year. Janet apparently took a liking to Kway, who then proposed the remake idea of the hit video to be released on Wednesday, when the legend would have turned 60.

Sources told TMZ that the team rehearsed for only one day before shooting the video the next. Actor and director Diamond Batiste worked behind the camera.

In front of the camera, Janet played the queen who judged two dancers, Kway and Bach, as they desperately attempted to win over her approval.


Bach failed to do so, getting a lowered finger from Janet. But Kway got a smile when he danced to Janet's new song "Made for Now."

His routine included two female backup dancers. When they leave, Kway got Janet's approval and is ecstatic. He is still not allowed to approach Queen Janet in the scene though.

Janet Jackson released the clip, which is just over a minute long, along with the words:

"Happy birthday to my bro... He inspired my new vid!"


The fun tribute reminds us of the joy Michael Jackson left to fans and family members alike.

In 2009, the star died in his Holmby Hills home as a result of a cardiac arrest. Paramedics at the scene and UCLA Medical Center staff could not resuscitate Michael.

His doctor, Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 despite his continuous claims of innocence in the legend's death.
