And tour the world.

May 16, 2015

UPDATE 06/01/15 6.53 a.m.: Industry website Radio Facts is reporting that Janet's new single will "hit radio and/or online within 30 days." Prayer hands emoji at the ready, this is not a drill.

2015 just got real: Janet Jackson announced Friday night via a short Vimeo clip that she will be releasing new music and embarking on a world tour before the year is out. This will be her first new release in seven years.

In the video, she says: "I promised you'd hear it from my lips, and now you will. This year, new music, new world tour, a new movement. I've been listening. Let's keep the conversation going." On Twitter, she coupled this with the hashtag #ConversationsInACafe, so chances are that could be the title of an upcoming single or album. #Blessed.
