Janet Jackson Streams Unbreakable Album to Loyal Fans
What an awesome time it is to be a Janet Jackson fan. Earlier in the morning we got an official album cover. In the afternoon we got the tracklisting. And now this evening we are being gifted with previews of several new singles, including the album’s title track.
Janet unveiled the Unbreakable single just moments ago via her official website, and called the song a “thank you” to her fans.
Janet Jackson Shows Off Unbreakable Album Cover, Sets Release Date
Pop icon Janet Jackson has set October 2 as the release date for her upcoming Unbreakable album, her eleventh overall, and first since 2008’s gold certified Discipline.
Janet has also blessed fans with the cover art for Unbreakable, which you can see to your right (click to enlarge). The image was photographed by Yu Tsai, and is one we’ve actually seen before.
Yu Tsai, the photographer tasked with helming the photoshoot for Janet Jackson’s upcoming Unbreakable album, uploaded a video to his Facebook page just moments ago that gives the singer’s fans an even more in depth look into the process of creating the pop diva’s next iconic persona.
Kimbo, Janet’s stylist for the cover shoot, called Janet’s new look “tribal,” and said it signifies her connection to her fans, her music, and even her culture. “We’re all just living on planet Janet,” according to Kimbo.
Rather than continue to update my last post on Janet Jackson, I’ve decided to just create a new one with all of the goodies her fans have been blessed with today.
First, the UK’s Metro newspaper gave us a glimpse at Janet’s photoshoot from her upcoming album. Then Janet herself dropped a snippet of her new single titled The Great Forever. That was quickly followed by the release of the first high quality image from this era (which you can see above). And now, ABC News has given us our first behind-the-scenes look at Janet’s photo session for the new album.
Janet Jackson Promo Images Finally Surface Online
It’s not much, but Janet Jackson fans have finally been given a glimpse at this era’s first set of promo images, thanks in part to an article written about the singer in the UK’s Metro newspaper.

Miss Janet Keeps it Grown & Sexy in Just Released No Sleeep Video
It’s finally here everybody- the video to Janet Jackson‘s new single No Sleeep featuring J Cole and directed by Dave Meyers.
The visually stunning clip feels like That’s the Way Love Goes redux and appears in some places to actually harken back to the song’s visual, as well as that of I Get So Lonely.
No Sleeep Video Coming Soon, Will Feature J Cole
Singer Janet Jackson and director Dave Meyers have teamed up again, this time to shoot the video for Janet’s new single No Sleeep.

Go Behind the Scenes with Janet Jackson in Lyrics Video for “No Sleeep”
Singer Janet Jackson has unveiled the lyrics video for her new single No Sleeep. The three-and-a-half minute clip takes fans behind the scenes of the recording session for the song, which Janet co-wrote and produced with longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
Like most celebs, singer Janet Jackson is looking to branch out and expand her empire. And while in this day and age for the average celebrity that would mean a clothing line- Miss Jackson, however, is no average celebrity, and thus has chosen to do things a bit differently.
Per NPR, Janet is getting into the diamonds business. That stunning yellow heart shaped necklace she wore at the BET Awards is reportedly a part of her new Janet Jackson Unbreakable Diamonds Collection, and will retail for the low-low price of only two millions dollars. The ring Janet wore however will be a bit more economical, costing a mere five-hundred thousand dollars.
Janet Jackson is an icon. How do we know? Because the singer has received recognition from no less than five sources bestowing the honor on her in the course of her near forty year career.
BET adds their name to the list for the second time, honoring Janet at last night’s show with their inaugural Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award, which you know they totally made up at the last minute to get the singer to make an appearance.
Corny ass name aside, half the people sitting in that audience wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for the smooth pathway Janet, and her brother Michael, paved for them. Because of that, no one is more deserving of yet another Icon award, than Miss Jackson herself.
There is a God and he has blessed us today with new music from singer Janet Jackson.
As promised, Janet delivered her new single No Sleeep bright and early this morning via her official website janetjackson.com.
I’ve listened to song a thousand times so far and it gets better with each play. Janet eschewed running after the “in” sound and the “in” producers, and instead returned to her musical roots, teaming up with longtime producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and it was the best decision she ever made. No Sleeep is everything it should be: a timeless classic that fans will surely love, and do based on my perusal of the internet.
Singer Janet Jackson thanked longtime fans and supporters earlier this week by releasing a forty-three second snippet from a new single, which she described via Twitter as a thank you to fans.
Janet announced her return to the music scene last month, and on Monday unveiled the first thirty-six dates of her upcoming Unbreakable tour, which kicks off in Vancouver, British Columbia on August 31.
Janet has been tagging all her recent tweets with the hashtag #ConversationsInACafe, leading to speculation that it may be the name of her upcoming eleventh solo album, her first since 2008’s gold certified Discipline.
It’s happening, Janet fans. It’s really, really happening this time.
Janet Jackson is back with a new single titled No Sleeep (yes, that extra ‘e’ is on purpose) and a just announced world tour that kicks off in Vancouver on August 31st.
Janet has so far announced thirty-six dates, with more scheduled to come in the next few days. Pre-orders for vinyl and CD copies of the album are also available today.
