Janet Jackson can’t forget her older brother, Michael Jackson.

The legendary Michael Jackson would have been 60 on Wednesday. It prompted his sister to provide a special birthday wish released on Wednesday.

Janet joined with Kwaylon Rogers — commonly known as @BlameItOnKway to his more than 3.6 million followers on Instagram — in this special 71-second clip.

Janet Jackson plays a queen in the video passing judgment on dancers who clearly seem to be inspired by some of the dancers inspired by some of Michael Jackson’s videos.

It’s clearly a nod to Michael Jackson’s legendary “Remember the Time” video that was released in 1992.

TMZ.com reports the project involving Janet Jackson and Kway came together after they met at the Billboard Awards earlier this year. Later, Kway told Janet Jackson of his idea to reimagining her brother’s hit video and releasing on Wednesday, when he would have turned 60.

The original Michael Jackson video was hailed as iconic soon after its release. And it remains important today with cameo appearances by Earvin “Magic” Johnson and Eddie Murphy.

Kway and King Bach appear in the new video as dancers who hope to earn the queen’s approval. Janet Jackson features her new song “Made for Now” in the video.

It’s a memorable way for Jackson to honor the memory of her big brother, as well as all who enjoyed his entertainment talents and his music.

Micheal Jackson died on June 25, 2009, after going into cardiac arrest at his Holmsby Hills home in Hollywood. Paramedics on the scene and staffers at UCLA Medical Center were unable to resuscitate “The King of Pop,” who died at the age of 50.
