We’re way past the point of cryptic tweets and anonymous message board posts.
It’s press release official.
Janet Jackson is planning a major comeback for 2015, and we finally have the very first press release from the campaign.
On Wednesday (June 3), the pop titan’s official website announced that Miss Jackson (if you’re nasty) will drop her first new album in seven years this fall via BMG through her own Rhythm Nation records. While there’s no title or further details regarding the LP yet, it’s noteworthy to mention that this will also be her first release under her own newly formed Rhythm Nation record label, which is history in itself. According to the release, Janet becomes “arguably the first female African-American recording artist to form her own record label.”
BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch also chimed in on the JJ lovefest in a statement, sharing his excitement to working with the icon on her upcoming project.
Janet is not just a supreme artist, she is a unique cultural force whose work resonates around the world. It is an honor that she has chosen BMG to release her long-awaited new album. We look forward to collaborating with her across every platform.”
