Is Janet Jackson Eyeing A November Release For New Album?

Singer Also Reportedly Set For 'X Factor' Performance

janet jackson comeback 2014 Is Janet Jackson Eyeing A November Release For New Album?

With anticipation for Janet Jackson‘s comeback at fever pitch, fresh reports have whipped buzz into overdrive.

The Pop queen recently attempted to quell speculation that she’s been working on a new album in stealth mode. However, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that “something” is nigh.

Now, a British newspaper have further poured fuel on the flames of excitement.

See what we mean below…

Yesterday, The Sun On Sunday reported that the diva has been working on a new LP, which is slated for release before Christmas. As yet untitled, the set would be her first since 2008’s ‘Discipline’.

The piece went on to add:

The label are really pushing Janet and have made her a priority act for the year, which means a big budget.

If it sells well she will look at doing a world tour in 2015.”

What’s more, it was reported (by multiple sources) that the singer and her team were in London last week on business, with one of the stops being a meeting with Simon Cowell to discuss a performance on The X Factor (which remains one of the biggest shows in the UK).

The said sources also touted November for the project’s release date.

**************

We… are… ready!

Granted we have been during each of the years that have passed since her last album, there’s something about the current climate that just feels…right.

Indeed, Jackson’s six-year hiatus has created the perfect storm of anticipation that she can very much use to her advantage. And, if leveraged the right way (see: epic music, videos, promotion, performances), could quite easily put her back atop of the charts.

She has a legacy and skill-set that are legendary. As such, it’s time to show the modern music market why both her first name and last name are so iconic.

Your thoughts?

      That’s what I said! lol No one knows a THING and I mean not one THING about Janet. Hell the girl could have 10 kids and house under the sea and we would never know. He was married for 10 years and we had no clue and was married again for a whole year before she LET us in on it. lol

    Mrs. Jackson better not be playing wit my emotions bc I am so excited about this possibility! I LOVED Discopline but so many people slept on that album for some reason. I STILL vibe to “Rock Wit U” and thought the video was PERFECTION… Classic Janet!… hopefully this hiatus does give her the leverage needed as stated above. LOVE SOME JANET… Oh… MRS. JACKSON IF YA NASTY!!!

    ugh I can’t take this!! i agree tho…the climate is definitely right for her to drop…..she made us miss her…not just her fans, but the general public….she’s on “untouchable” status again with her billionaire husband and elusive behavior ,(jermaine had her too reachable)….she will be able to book literally whatever show she wants to promote, she can record popular music without looking dated unlike other 90’s divas known for power ballads

    6 years without releasing new material could hurt her more than it could help, i think her hardcore fans are super excited but i don’t think the gp is, it would be very hard for her to have a good era or a decent one, it’s 2014, the name of Janet Jackson is not what it used to be, in comparison to other divas from the past, her name seems to fall short, even if the same divas aren’t on top anymore. Janet is always placed in a lower category.

      I don’t agree. A lot of my friends used to drag me when I said I was a Janet fan, putting her in the “freak” box that the rest of the family is in. But that hasn’t happened for a while, and whenever I bring her up or one of her big hits comes on the radio they totally jam out and are receptive to her making a comeback.

      As Pat said above, ducking out of the public eye has made her seem elusive and intriguing to the GP, and made them miss her. She needs to play it right though. The mass public want happy, dancy Janet, not super sexed up breathy Janet.

      Disagree. Janet’s problem last decade was that she DIDN’T let the GP miss her. She kept releasing albums every two years and each era was “a comeback” as promo. Hell her flop gold, so the bar is so much lower than what it was 6 years ago. Hell if she can do 300K and tour (where the money is at) then she’s good. I mean, look at your old hag. Her flops are just promo for her tours. So…

    God, plz let this be true. I’m tired of all these rumors, but then again, she did say, if their is a project you’ll hear it from her own lips. I know Janet is good at keeping secrets but damn, I need all these speculations to stop already because it’s hurting my feelings! lol.. I just can’t wait till she comes back and show us what a true artist is. She’s the last of the big original 5, that being (MJ, Madge, Whitney & Mariah).

      What is that original 5 you are inventing now? LOL Talking about talent? About sales? I don´t know. It´s weird that you consider the best those 4 females and then Michael with them? Don´t you know the huge amount of males and groups who have been more successful or more talented than these females (and I´m the biggest fan of these ladies)? If you talk about sales: Are you forgetting Madonna, Whitney, Mariah and Celine Dion are the top 4 by an important difference?

    Wow! Janet Damita Jo Jackson is coming back… I’ve always liked her. Such an Icon. Out of all of the “divas” she’s the only one that really made consistently made strong album for almost two decades straight. “Control” – “Damita Jo”. I am looking forward to hear return especially after six years.

    It´s going to be soooo interesting to see this. What direction will she take musically? Will she promote or will she just release the album and not much more like most of the artists her age? Will it have any impact singles wise (remember it´s been years, I doubt it)?

    Like, Sam (and the rest of the team @ ThatGrapeJuice), I.Am.So.Ready for Janet’s new album but, I won’t believe anything about its release until Janet says SOMETHING or the first single drops. And, yes…it’s time for Janet to show these b****** (females AND dudes) who’s REALLY BOSS!!! I’m ready!

    Sidenote: The main reason I like this site is because folks like Sam support Janet. Y’all talk major s*** about Sam cuz he/she can see through someone like Rihanna gimmicks and can see that the girl has ZERO talent but, Sam is cool with me. Just thought I’d through that in there.
