"Any Time, Any Place" is a song by American singer Janet Jackson from her fifth studio album, janet. (1993). Released as the album's fifth single on May 23, 1994, it reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and became another R&B chart-topper for Jackson. R. Kelly made the well known remix of this song.
"Anytime, Anyplace" was sampled by Kendrick Lamar in his song "Poetic Justice", which featured Drake and became a Top 10 hit in 2013. Kendrick asked Janet to appear in the music video saying it would be "a blessing [if Janet Jackson were to appear in the video]" and he's "a young boy that looked up to you for years". Although interest was expressed she was unable to make an appearance. The song's producer Scoop DeVille recalled several artists wanting the song based on the Janet sample, including rapper 50 Cent, before he ended up giving it to Lamar.
DeVille discussed the idea for the sample, saying "The way that 'Poetic Justice' came about, we were in the lab, working. I heard the record on the radio. When I hear certain things, it moves you in a certain way. It's like emotion," he explained. "When you hear a certain song come on the radio, it's like, oh my goodness, this is crazy for it to be around that time. That record is one of the sexiest records of our time. Growing up, it was just a big record. Hearing it the way I did, I thought it would be crazy if I flipped it."
The song held the number-one position on the BillboardHot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for ten weeks (a record at the time) and became Jackson's biggest hit on the chart; it also peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 (behind All-4-One's "I Swear"), while it saw limited success in Europe and Australia. With the song reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100, Jackson became the only artist to release 3 consecutive albums with at least 5 top-ten singles in the U.S.
The video for "Any Time, Any Place" was directed by Keir McFarlane. Jackson is depicted playing sex games with a man across the hall. The video acted as a safe sex campaign. An alternate version of the video with the R. Kelly Mix was also shot with more explicit footage. At the end of the video, the screen fades to black, and a message fades in: "any time, any place ......be responsible".
