Finally! After years away from the music biz, pop queen Janet Jackson has blessed impatient fans with a taste of what’s to come on her new album. And we absolutely ‘Love’ it!
Right after announcing the forthcoming release of her new LP Unbreakable and a supporting world tour, Janet Jackson, 49, has granted the Rhythm Nation’s wish by releasing new music as well. On June 17, the superstar introduced a track to her 3.1 million Twitter followers called “Love” — and it’s everything. Listen to it here!
Janet, who has a well-known penchant for song interludes, has proved that she’s still the same singer in her short and sweet 43-second masterpiece, “Love.” Judging from the lyrics in this clip, we can tell that Unbreakable will have a very personal vibe to it. Check it out below:

“I lived through my mistakes, it’s just a part of growing. And never for a single moment did I ever go without your love,” she coos in her signature, silky-smooth voice. “You make me feel wanted, I want to tell you how important you are to me. And I, love.” And we love YOU, girl. Hearing this has made the excitement for even more Janet tunes (not to mention her upcoming concerts!) so real right now.
After a 2012 overseas migration to marry Middle Eastern business magnate, Wissam Al Mana, 40, Miss Jackson is readying up to speak out after hardly uttering a word for almost three years. Using music to express herself, Janet acknowledges the darker times she’s gone though on this fresh track. However, she attributes her perseverance to “love” — which has helped her through life’s most painful moments.
On May 16 (Janet’s 49th birthday), life got a little bit — actually a whole lot — better when the “All For You” singer first disclosed that she’d be making her long-awaited comeback.
“I’ve promised you’d hear it from my lips and now you will,” Janet said in a video, released on Vimeo. “This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening, let’s keep the conversation going.”
It’s been seven years since Janet’s last album, Discipline, was released — so this news couldn’t possibly be any more exciting for fans of the 6-time Grammy winner! Earlier this year, it was reported that a new JJ album was on the way after an alleged photo of Atlantic Records’ upcoming releases hit the internet. All we can say is, thank goodness those rumors ended up being true!
