Background

The song was the lead single from the Universal Pictures film Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, in which Jackson co-starred with actor Eddie Murphy and was used as the official theme song for the movie. It became Jackson's ninth number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and first in the 2000s, staying atop for three weeks, and also making Jackson the first artist in history to score number-one singles in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. An alternate mix of the song was later included on Jackson's seventh studio album, 2001's All for You. Jackson performed this version at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards. The song was used in the dance video game Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova, and was covered in Japanese by Hitomi Shimatani and re-titled "Papillon" (Jackson's character's name). Jackson performed the song on her All for You Tour and Rock Witchu Tour. It was included in her current tour, Number Ones: Up Close and Personal.

Music video

The music video, directed by Joseph Kahn and choreographed by Shawnette Heard, shows Jackson in an abstract anime-based, futuristic Japan, featuring an AIBO dog, morphing clothes, levitating platforms, and a futuristic Acura vehicle (Acura CL-X Concept Prototype) . Also, behind her and her dancers screens show various scenes from the Dreamcast games Jet Grind Radio and Shenmue. It was featured on MTV's Making the Video on June 28, 2000.[2] The video was only available on the enhanced CD single, and on the Nutty Professor II DVD as part of an extra feature. It was not released on any of Jackson's video compilations. Janet Jackson discovered the lyrics in a notebook she found lying around. She thought it would go well with the movie. She didn't change anything about the song except the beat. The lyrics stayed the same. The music video was featured on a VHS release on Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.
