Janet Jackson To Drop First Album In Seven Years
Woohoo, Janet Jackson fans rejoice. After years of anticipation, Jackson is finally ready to release another album.
What will be her first LP in a whopping seven years, Janet will drop the project this fall through her own Rhythm Nation Records. BMG will release the record and according to a press release obtained by HipHollywood, the singer’s partnership with BMG “makes Janet Jackson the biggest worldwide superstar yet to quit the traditional record label system for a so-called artist services deal, designed to put artists in the driving seat.”
Jon Cohen, EVP of Recorded Music at BMG Chrysalis US said, “Janet is a cultural icon and pop star like no other. The release of her long-awaited new album will undoubtedly be one of the musical highlights of 2015. It is an honor to work with her.”
Jackson said in a statement, “Thank you to the talented team at BMG, my new artistic home. The opportunity to be creative in music and every form of entertainment has great potential here.”
Last month, the 49-year-old announced in a video that she will also be heading off on tour. “I promised you’d hear it from my lips. And now you will.
This year, new music, new world tour, a new movement,” she said in the clip. “I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.”
