Janet Jackson took to Instagram to announce her upcoming project, “Black Diamond,” her first release in five years. In an added bonus, she also revealed that she will be hitting the road this summer, beginning in Miami on June 24th to promote the album.
“Hey U Guys! I’ve heard all your wishes and now from my lips to your ears. I’m working on my new album and going on a brand new World Tour this summer! Both titled ‘Black Diamond,’ she wrote in the lengthy IG caption.
Jackson’s last album, Unbreakable, was released in the fall of 2015 under her independent, Rhythm Nation record label. The album was Jackson’s eleventh studio album. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming Jackson’s seventh album to top the chart in the United States, and making her only the third act in the history of the chart system to have a number one album in each of the last four decades, according to Billboard.
While there is no release date as of yet, it’s great to see Miss Jackson back in the studio.
