Additionally, to honor Jackson, RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Peppermint filmed a recreation of Jackson’s 1993 “If” video.

Peppermint said in a statement, “I have always modeled my live performances after Janet’s, but up until this moment, most of those are just memories with nothing to show and no way to look back on. Now that I have the ability, I wanted to do those performances justice. I gathered a bunch of friends who are also big fans of Janet to put together a dance tribute video of ‘If’ from her 1993 album Janet. Happy birthday, Miss Jackson!!”
