"Go Deep" is a song by American recording artist Janet Jackson from her sixth studio album, The Velvet Rope (1997). Written by Jackson, James Harris III, Terry Lewis, and René Elizondo, Jr., the song was released as the album's fourth single in June and July 1998 in the United Kingdom and the United States respectively

Chart performance[edit]

Although "Go Deep" was released as an international single, it received radio airplay in the U.S. and had success as a club single, peaking at number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart in early August 1998. The single entered and peaked at number thirteen on the UK Singles Chart in June 1998 and spent five weeks on the chart. It also charted inside the top forty in most other European countries and Australia, but fared better in the US and Canada. A hip hop remix by producer Timbaland also contributed to the song's success at U.S. urban stations.

Music video[edit]

In the single's music video—directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and released in July 1998, Ty Hodges makes a cameo appearance as a teen boy whose parents have left town for the weekend. The doorbell suddenly rings and it turns out to be Jackson and her dancers, who are asked to be let in. Jackson and company invite more friends over and a large house party ensues. The video climaxes with the young boy realizing it was all an elaborate daydream with his favorite singer. It appears on the DVD edition of 2001's All for You as well as the 2004 video compilation From janet. to Damita Jo: The Videos.[1][2]
