We gave it a B+

This ”No Scrubs”-ish tune gets no points for originality, but that doesn’t really matter; ”Doesn’t Really Matter” delivers in just about every other way. Produced by longtime Janet collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the first single from the soundtrack to Nutty Professor II: The Klumps slides nicely from a half-time, stutter-beat verse to a memorably singsongy chorus, on which Janet’s restrained cooing lets the melody do all the work. B+
