Janet Jackson Releasing New Music, Going on World Tour in 2015 (VIDEO)
Janet Jackson is releasing new music, and going on a world tour in 2015! The singer made the surprising announcement on Twitter at midnight on Saturday, which also happens to be her 49th birthday. “I promised you’d hear it from my lips, and now you will,” says Jackson in the video as music plays in the background. She continues, “This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening, let’s keep the conversation going.” Watch the video below.
Last year, it was rumored the singer was working on a new album but she shut down the speculation writing on Twitter, “If there is a new project, you’ll hear it from my lips.” Well, Jackson kept her promise when she shockingly made her announcement early Saturday morning. She also included the Twitter hashtag, “#ConversationsInACafe,” which is rumored to be the title of her new album.
The younger sister of the late Michael Jackson hasn’t released an album since 2008’s Discipline, and has been relatively out of the spotlight since marrying billionaire Wissam Al Mana in 2012. Last month, Jackson’s fans made a “Missing Person” poster as a joke begging the singer to come back to the music industry and release new music. The poster, which Jackson retweeted, read: “Seriously, Janet, where the hell are you? We NEED you back. We miss you. Your fans miss you. The MUSIC INDUSTRY NEEDS YOU. Come back and show these young whippersnappers how it’s done! We’re not asking. We’re BEGGING!” Check out the video below to see Janet Jackson’s announcement that she’s working on new music and going on tour, and tell us what you think.
