Janet Jackson Announces New Music and World Tour

by | PopCrush

Janet Jackson has been staying under the radar for a while now. But now she’s back and has a big announcement for everyone.

The “That’s the Way Love Goes” singer posted a video to Twitter on Friday night (May 15), the day before her 49th birthday, sharing the news we’ve been waiting for a long — a new album!

“I promised you’d here it from my lips,” she said with a smooth R&B groove playing in the background. “This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement.”

She added, “I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.”

The visual was simple and focused on sound equipment in a recording studio. Aside from the beats, you can also hear a lot of background chatter going on — leading to the hastag in her tweet, “#ConversationsInACafe.” Whether or not that is just something she added to the post or could possibly be the name of a new track or the album, only time will tell.

Fans all over the world have been waiting for new music from the R&B pop star since 2008’s Discipline. And although there were speculations that she was working on something in the past, Janet squashed those rumors last August when she tweeted, “If there is a new project, you’ll hear it from my lips.”

Before this announcement, Janet has been out of the spotlight for the most part and occasionally attended events with her hubby Qatari businessman and billionaire Wissam Al Mana, who she secretly married in 2012.

Who’s glad to have Janet back? We know we are!
