For obvious reasons, Janet Jackson has never ridden public transportation in New York City.
In celebration of her new single, “Made For Now,” the pop and R&B superstar ventured through the big apple with song collaborator, Daddy Yankee, helping lead the way.
“He is teaching me,” says Janet in the video from Billboard. “it’s my first train ride so he’s educating me.”
When asked about her 2001 video for single, “All For You,” where she’s seen riding the subway, she laughingly replies, “Yeah, but that one doesn’t count.”
Check out footage from the train ride below.
