Janet Jackson Releases First Single In Six Years, Announces World Tour

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson has released her first single in six years. The singer shocked fans when she went back to the studio to record and now she’s announced her upcoming world tour.

Janet’s new single, which is titled  “No Sleeep” was released on June 22 by the singer. It chronicles the deep insomnia two lovers suffer when they finally meet after not having seen each other in a while, according to TIME. The song has a really slow tempo, much like Janet’s style. The lyrics are steamy and Janet even calls herself the “queen of insomnia.”

Janet took to Twitter to announce the release of her new song to the world. In the tweet, she wrote that the song is dedicated to “My Love.”

The tweet caused a stir online as fans congratulated her on her return to the music scene.

“No Sleeep” was produced by the singer’s long time partners, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. It’s her first single since “Make Me” was released back in 2009. The song was later released on Apple Music where fans were given the opportunity to hear Janet’s mellow voice after what has been a long hiatus from the music industry.

“No Sleeep” will be Janet’s first single from her oncoming yet-to-be-named album. The album, which is set to be released this fall, will be her first album since “Discipline” back in 2008. Her new album also marks her departure from Island Records, as it will be released by her new label Rhythm Nation.

In anticipation of her oncoming album, Janet announced a world tour that will kick off on August 31, 2015 and go on all the way through November of 2015. The tour, which is titled “Unbreakable,” entails 36 shows around the globe, all over the course of just three months hyping her new album and reintroducing her and her music to the world.

Tickets for the tour are available on Janet’s website along with pre-orders of the upcoming album.
