The “Rhythm Nation” singer is gearing up to release a

new single before years’ end, which will precede Black

Diamond, her first new album since 2015.

The album — on which Jackson, 55, will serve as a

producer and songwriter — is scheduled to drop in 2022,

and will be released through her label Rhythm Nation

Records.

 

The star has also teamed up with prolific producers and

songwriters Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who together

have nine No. 1 singles, as well as founding Earth, Wind

& Fire member Ralph Johnson, artist, songwriter and

producer Darrell Randle, Siedah Garret and Marcel East.

It’ll be the first new album for Jackson

since Unbreakable hit shelves, debuting at No. 1 on

the Billboard 200 albums chart and making Jackson, at

the time, just the third artist to notch No. 1 albums in

each of the last four decades.

 

It also marks the first new music since she became a

mom in 2017 with the birth of son Eissa.

 

The five-time Grammy winner has been teasing new

music over the past few months, and in early August

shared a photo of herself wearing headphones and

standing next to a microphone, hinting that she was in

the studio.

 

Black Diamond comes as Jackson is also preparing up

for the January release of JANET, a two-part

documentary set to air on Lifetime and A&E just in time

to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her debut album.

 

“Hey u guys. Excited to share the first teaser of my new

documentary with u. 😘 #JanetDoc,” Jackson wrote on

Instagram alongside the film’s first teaser trailer.

 

The documentary will feature footage from Jackson’s

legendary life and career, and interviews with stars

like Missy ElliottMariah CareyPaula Abdul and

Jackson’s older brother Tito Jackson.

 

“This is my story, told by me. Not through someone else’s

eyes,” she says in a voiceover. “This is the truth. Take it

or leave it. Love it or hate it. This is me.”

 

JANET was announced in March, and was filmed around

the time her father, Joe Jackson, died in June 2018. Fans

are eager for the release of her new project and look

forward to her magnificent stage shows that she is

famously known for.
