There’s a new rhythm in the nation that’s getting people up and moving, as “Made For Now”, the latest single by Rhythm Nation/Cinq Music’s Janet Jackson, dances up the charts. The release is a collaboration with UMLE’s Daddy Yankee, and the combination of their two fanbases was certainly made for now and the future. By Friday evening, the tune was on the all-genre list in 73 countries, including its #4 peak on iTunes in the U.S., only behind three hits from the late Aretha Franklin. That rapid top five entry is one of Jackson’s highest peaks for an individual track during the digital era, and it’s still holding strong in the top 20. Elsewhere, the colorful music video for “Made” spent several days on YouTube’s Trending chart, which assisted the clip’s quick ascent in views, now in excess of 17 million at the platform. At Spotify, supported by New Music Friday playlisting, the tune is now well over 1.2 million streams, leading Jackson’s list of most popular songs currently at the service. Even on Shazam, the collaboration is nearing 19,000 tags in under a week with little to no U.S. airplay. As the single continues its chart run, its sync-driven sound and awesome visuals are sure to give Jackson her biggest numbers in years.
