Is Janet Jackson Eyeing A November Release For New Album?

Published: Monday 11th Aug 2014 by Sam

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.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 11, 2014

      Me too

    • Mark111 August 11, 2014

      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

  3. You Stupid August 11, 2014

    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!!!

  4. MichaelJacksonStan August 11, 2014

    Plz let this be true. Its time to have some real slayage. All these b****** need to be schooled by the true Queen!… She is the only entertainer close to the grate King Michael Jackson. So Im here for this to happen!!!! Queen Jackson >>>>>> Every other femail artist!!!

  5. pat August 11, 2014

    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. Err… August 11, 2014

    I’m not getting excited until Janet tweets about it herself or
    something. She had to put our asses in check the last time, lol!

    • ~The Arcade~ August 11, 2014

      Right!!! lol

  7. Suicide Blonde August 11, 2014

    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.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 11, 2014

      And the name Madonna is t either. Look ho,just bcus madge last cd was a FLOPN mess in which she could not even GIVE that crap away. I think u say shyt TO get dragged

    • janet1814 August 11, 2014

      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.

      • career ender August 11, 2014


      • janet1814 August 11, 2014

        @career ender I don’t believe I know you.

    • Mark111 August 11, 2014

      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…

        Don’t call the queen a hag respect musi

  8. Greg_N_Greed August 11, 2014

    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).

    • JOHNVIDAL August 11, 2014

      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?

  9. SipTheTruth August 11, 2014

    My body is ready.

  10. Jose August 11, 2014

    from those pretty lips!!! 🙂

  13. Brian310 August 11, 2014

    She said anything new involving music we would hear from her so I will not get excited or think much of this but hopefully there is some truth to these rumors I need a new Janet album.

  14. Dem Lessors August 11, 2014

    Queen Janet I’m ready when you are! Already got the coins.

  15. Spunkypoop August 11, 2014

    come on Miss Janet. we are starving and craving for a hotttttt new album!!! We know u can deliver and service these b******. You are the QUEEN of POP and Madonna ain’t got S*** ON YOU!!!

  16. Royalkev August 11, 2014

    Can’t wait for the legendary Janet’s return! When she does …
    *plays Kanye’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing* …

  17. lets be real August 11, 2014

    Not gonna get excited until she says something, I’m ready for it if its true but i’ve been burned by Janet project talks since 2009 so I’ll keep blasting her classics till otherwise

  18. tits mcgee August 11, 2014

    I hope her confirmation comes in as, her dropping
    the 1st video(dance heavy), performing on a high
    profile show, and putting out the album the same week
    by surprise, ala prince/Beyonce!

    That would be awesome!

  19. Lolz August 11, 2014

    Come thru Janet!

  20. Dossome August 11, 2014

    Arrrrrrgggggh…you m************ need to support this album and make the queen tour the universe next year…I need to watch this woman live

    • Royalkev August 11, 2014

      Yessssss! I totally agree 10,000%! 🙂

      • Dossome August 11, 2014

        Make it 1,000,000% 😀 …After 6yrs,the world deserves a dose of new Janet.I know this album will be a masterpiece.She’s never disappointed

    • MichaelJacksonStan August 11, 2014

      Yes Gwoooodd! *Glues my wig tighter*

  21. FutureCIARA August 11, 2014

    She’s definitely COMING!
    The Icon herself would have never made a statement to discredit rumors if there wasn’t a Lil truth to it.
    I’m here for it, and I will be shopping for a new Lace Wig soon

  22. Dossome August 11, 2014

    I know i shouldn’t get excited until i get confirmation bla bla bla but this is motherfuckin Janet Jackson…Any possibility of getting new music from this woman will always excite me

  23. tits mcgee August 11, 2014

    I feel you!! It always gets me too! Kii!

    • tits mcgee August 11, 2014


      • Dossome August 11, 2014

        Lol thank you…Thank God i ain’t the only one

  24. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 11, 2014

    Y’all already know that I’m ready for the Legend and Icon to come back. I’m just scared to get my hopes up.

    But I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOO ready! 🙂

  25. Kris August 11, 2014

    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.

    • ~The Arcade~ August 11, 2014

      She’s the real deal, classic after classic, which is very rare these days. I know she will execute a great album; she strikes me as a ‘perfectionist’ never mediocre. Ever!!!

  26. vfb August 11, 2014

    Janet……..please come through with a new album….already got my coins….I don’t care if her album cost 30.00 dollars , I’m straight over dosing on Janet in 2015

  27. JOHNVIDAL August 11, 2014

    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)?

  28. Career Ender August 11, 2014

    this poster —> “truth (icki is the QWEEN OF
    PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her
    scuured honey. #IckiAFlop)”
    can be iconic in TGJ but s/he chose to be reductive in all his/her comments
    it is always in each and every post but no one takes it serious
    milli vanilli of tgj

  29. Career Ender August 11, 2014

    I don’t know most of her music

    I don’t see her as a stage blazer anymore , she’s much of a mature woman (body wise)
    anyway she’s one of the best. all the best

    • Dossome August 11, 2014

      I hope it’s true

      • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

        Me too. It looks to be true. Too many people
        saying they are working on music/choreography
        with her for something not to up.

        I guess we will know soon enough.

      • tits mcgee August 11, 2014


  30. Dossome August 11, 2014

    Speaking of comeback,do you remember the likes of Pop Royalty,White Girl Mob (lol),Mobwife,Virtuoso Intellect,Benron,MC,etc?..They really lightened up this blog tbh

    • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

      Yass!! They all added some spice on here.
      I think Virtuoso Intellect is @Richie_Rich, tho.
      I think. Lol.

      • Dossome August 11, 2014

        Lol,really?All i know is @Richie_Rich was called RichandBlack before.I think Virtuoso is different.I could be wrong considering i just discovered @Suicide was ONYX just a few weeks ago

      • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

        I could be wrong about Richie. I also miss that
        young light skinned Mariah fan. I think his name
        was Jake, and Taylor Swift’s #1 fan was kewl too.

      • Dossome August 11, 2014

        Yeah,i remember Jake,he could be dramatic at times.That Taylor Swift #1 fan was so sweet,he/she hardly attacked anyone,lol..oh,you remember @BitchICan’tSpellWelfare?definitely one of my favorites too

      • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

        BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare is still around!
        I love her too! Scroll up on this post, she
        has her classic Janet ‘Velvet Rope’ avi! 🙂

      • Dossome August 11, 2014

        Lol,my bad…i hardly read comments these days.She used to have a Prince avi before as well but lately not as active as before.At least the likes of RoyalKev,Richie,JohnVidal,Suicide Blonde,you and a few other veterans are still around,otherwise this place would be sooooo boring for me

      • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

        Thanks!! I feel the same about everyone
        you mentioned, and you of course! 😉

  31. UrbanLoveBae August 11, 2014

  35. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! August 11, 2014

    Taylor Swift Holding Worldwide Live Stream on Aug. 18

    • tits mcgee August 11, 2014

      Speaking of the devil, lol. Nice to see you
      around. 🙂

  36. Amanda August 11, 2014

    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.

  37. Isaiah ogua August 13, 2014

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! I’m like her biggest fan and I’m 15 yrs old and to see Janet in action promoting and doing a world tour would be a dream come true as soon as it’s released I’m buying it I already have every Janet CD their ever was I’m so ecstatic can’t wait at all I love
    Janet Jackson!!
