Love Will Never Do (Without You)

"Love Will Never Do (Without You)" is a song by American R&B/pop singer Janet Jackson.

Song information

Released in 1990, it was the seventh single (final in the U.S.) from Jackson's fourth studio album, Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989). It topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for one week, and became her fifth number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the final of seven top five singles from the album, making her the first and only artist to achieve seven top 5 singles from one album. In 1996, the song was remixed by Roger Sanchez. The Single Edit was included on the international release of Jackson's first greatest-hits compilation "Design of a Decade 1986/1996".

Music video

The video was directed by photographer Herb Ritts. Jackson originally planned to wear a dress for the video, but Ritts envisioned Jackson in nothing more than a black top and a pair of jeans. The video features cameos by Calvin Klein underwear model and actor Antonio Sabàto, Jr. and a young Djimon Hounsou, then a fashion model.

Jackson won a MTV Video Music Award for "Best Female Video" and was nominated for "Best Choreography" and "Best Art Direction" in 1991. The video ranked thirteen on Rolling Stone's "The 100 Top Music Videos", seventy-two on VH1's "100 Greatest Videos", and eighty-eight on MTV's "100 Greatest Videos Ever Made".

Two versions of the video were produced, one in black-and-white, and the other colorized, both which appear on the Design of a Decade 1986/1996 video compilation. On April 27, 2007, the video was made available on iTunes.
