  • Lyrics
  • In 2009, Janet Jackson had to deal with the unexpected death of her brother Michael. This track finds the singer paying tribute to her late sibling as she reminisces about a childhood full of singing and laughing together as well as the pain of having an abusive father. In the chorus she looks forward to being reunited with him in the next life. It marks the first time that Janet has opened up about Michael in a song.
