According to the Miami Herald
, Pop superstar Janet Jackson is in Miami recording a new album. The ‘All for You’ singer has booked 3 months of recording time at Circle House Studios. Interestingly, Def Jam head LA Reid has accompanied Jackson on the trip. Though boyfriend Jermaine Dupri has yet to been seen with them, he is slated to produce on the project.
It’s great that Janet is already recording the follow-up to ’20 Y.O’. I’m guessing LA Reid’s presence confirms the speculation that she has signed with Def Jam. As one of the few that enjoyed Jermaine’s contribution to her last CD, I’m glad that they’re collaborating again; though, it may be in her best interest to keep his presence on the CD to a minimum. This new album really will be ‘make or break’ for Janet – whose career has been struggling since the Superbowl incident a few years back. I’m hopeful she’ll make a spectacular comeback. If Def Jam put as much money/promo into the project – as they did for Mariah’s last CD and Rihanna currently – then I’m sure Janet will do great.
Are you anticipating Janet’s new CD?
