    Dancehall Megastar Elephant Man collaborates with Pop Star Janet Jackson

    Pop star Janet Jackson has decided to spice thing up a bit by asking VP Recording artist and dancehall megastar Elephant Man to collaborate with her on a track from her latest album. In a bid to draw more attention to her Gold album Damita Joe, Janet and her label have decided to focus on the urban market which has embraced the lyrical stylings of ‘The Energy God’ Elephant Man. The result is an urban remix of her upcoming single, ‘All Night’, done in tandem with Elephant Man. The remix was recorded on Monday, April 26th just five days after VP Records Representative Willie Daniels was contacted by representatives at Virgin Records (Jackson's record label).
    Willie Daniels, A&R at VP Records in New York who has responsibility for Elephant Man, Tanto Metro and Devonte, Lady Saw and Lexxus among others, had this to say about the initial contact "I got a call from representatives at Virgin Records last Wednesday, and they said that Janet requested that Elephant Man be featured on the track. It was recorded on Monday at the Hit Factory in New York City, with Jermaine Dupri handling the production," Daniels said that Jackson's label had considered an urban remix of the track, based on the fact that there was already a pop mix, and they didn't want to ignore the urban market.

    Daniels explained that the remix could do well for Jackson in the urban market, due to the fact that Elephant Man is currently enjoying some attention in the urban marketplace. Elephant's latest single Jook Gal was number 61 on the R&B chart up to two weeks ago. It is currently number 95 in its second week on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Elephant Man has also been gaining some mainstream exposure through a Puma TV ad campaign, which uses Elephant’s track “All Out” from his VP Records release ‘Good To Go’. One particular ad shows Elephant Man in the studio with Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt, where the relay runner passes the “Stick” and fails in an attempt to continue the recording process.

    "It's going to help both of them. It will no doubt open Elephant Man to the pop audience. The label is also looking at a music video for the song, and there is the possibility that Elephant Man will be performing with her at the BET awards in June," Daniels said Elephant Man is no stranger to remixes with American recording artistes. He was featured on a remix of a Mariah Carey song last year. Late last year he also teamed with Lil' Jon and the Eastside Boyz, Ying Yang Twins and Busta Rhymes for a remix of Get Low.
