It's been a minute since I've professed my love for the greatest entertainer in the world(in my opinion) on this site, but when I heard Ms. Janet Jackson is officially releasing her new album in February 2008 and a new single this Saturday(December 15th) online I could not contain my excitement!
The yet untitled album is due to be released overseas on February 20th with an American release following shortly thereafter.For those of you wondering if longtime boyfriend Jermaine Dupri is producing the new album the answer is no. Janet is currently signed with Island Def Jam and the album is being spearheaded by music guru L.A. Reid. The new set will feature songs penned by Ne-Yo and Pharrel Williams along with a duet with Maroon 5.
The haters were ready to write Ms. Jackson off three albums ago but she's still here and showing no signs of disappearing. Despite harsh criticism of her last two albums they all went platinum and garnered hit singles. If Madonna can still make music so can Janet. I don't think the world is ready for the new Janet in 2008. I have no doubt she's going to prove why she's still in CONTROL!
