"Feel It Boy" is a song by Jamaican reggae artist Beenie Man featuring Janet Jackson from Beenie Man's sixteenth studio album Tropical Storm (2002). It was written by Beenie Man and Jackson, while being produced by The Neptunes. The song was released on June 25, 2002 as the lead single from the album by Virgin Records.

Song information[edit]

The song was written by Beenie Man and produced by award-winning duo The Neptunes. It was released as a single on June 25, 2002 peaking in the top 20s and 30s in most countries. It spent 12 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at #28. It also peaked at #9 on the UK Singles Chart. [1] In 2004, Jackson expressed her regret for the duet, saying "If I had known that (he was associated with homophobia), I would not have worked with him. It's shocking to me. We're on the same label, so I should have known. But at the same time, I wish someone from the company would have told me, knowing how... I feel about the gay community."[2] The song appeared in the Japan-only radio promo sampler We Love Janet in 2006.

The song was used as a DJ interlude on Jacksons 2015-2016 Unbreakable World Tour and her 2017 State of the World Tour.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Dave Meyers. Set on an island beach, it depicts different characters in their daily life with Jackson and Beenie Man on the beach enjoying the surroundings and different activities around them. Towards the end, Beenie Man pulls in a fourwheeler near Janet and begins to eye her with binoculars. The video ends with a party that was mentioned in the song. The video was filmed on Westward Beach in Malibu, California.
