Rhythm Nation by recording artist Janet Jackson, released as the second single from her fourth studio album, Rhythm Nation 1814. James “Jimmy Jam” Harris III and Terrence “Terry” Lewis wrote, composed, and produced the song in collaboration with Jackson.
The music video for Rhythm Nation was directed by Dominic Sena, serving as the final inclusion in Jackson’s long-form Rhythm Nation 1814 film. It portrays rapid choreography within a “post-apocalyptic” warehouse setting, with Jackson and her dancers adorned in unisex military attire. It was filmed in black-and-white to portray the song’s theme of racial harmony.
