I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THROW BACK VIDEO: YOU WANT THIS BY JANET JACKSON



"You Want This" is a song by American singer Janet Jackson from her fifth studio album, janet.(1993). Released as the album's seventh single (sixth and final in the U.S.) in August 1994, the track was written and produced by Jackson and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The single version, also used in the music video, featured an additional rap verse from MC Lyte.

The single peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and number nine on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and was moderately successful internationally, making it to the top twenty in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. It is Jackson's least successful single in Germany to date, peaking at number ninety.

The video was directed by Keir McFarlane in August 1994. Loosely based on Russ Meyer's 1965 film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, it centers around Jackson and her friends encountering two men. Set at a motel on the desert and featuring car chases, it also contains a dance routine towards the end. Two versions of the video, one black-and-white and the other colorized, are available on the 1994 video compilation janet. The colorized version is featured on the repackage of 2001's All for You as well as the 2004 DVD From janet. to Damita Jo: The Videos.
