Janet Jackson Comeback Album Due In October?

Buzz. Janet Jackson‘s comeback campaign boasts it earnest.

The diva has the world waiting with bated breath for details on the set, the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Discipline.’

And with her ‘Unbreakable Tour’ set to kick off in 12 days and current single ‘No Sleeep’ soaring on Adult Contemporary radio, it was only a matter of time before more tea on the LP was poured.

Cups ready? The fill awaits after the jump…

Multiple sources confirm that during an interview with Donnie Simpson on radio last night, the project’s executive producer Terry Lewis revealed that the set is due for release “around October.”

The hitmaker’s statements come as retailer F.Y.E’s in-store pre-ordering system was updated this week with a listing for a Janet album titled ‘Unbreakable’ –  with a store date of October 2nd.

Of course, the 49-year-old has insisted that official details will come from her lips.

However, the correlation between the two occurrences above is difficult to ignore.

If indeed dropping on October 2nd, we envision a staggered release of sorts – with perhaps the digital coming before retail.

Why, you may wonder?

Well, upon the debut of ‘No Sleeep,’ a highly placed exec at BMG (who Jackson has teamed up with to release and market the project) confirmed with firm certainty that the album would arrive before the September 30th deadline of the 2016 Grammy’s.

Given how close the alleged October date is to the cut-off, it’s entirely logical for the LP to impact digitally a week prior to ensure eligibility and hit stores physically the following week. Adding fuel to the fire, Janet has no ‘Unbreakable’ shows after September 30th until October 9th. Album promo window, perhaps?

Time will tell.

Your thoughts?

    I can’t wait!

      This comes as no surprise to those who already purchased ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ tickets during the pre sale… Presage came with a Tshirt and the album, and stated in the confirmation that said items would ship in October….. This news is soooo LATE!

  5. Brazio August 18, 2015

    I want this album!!!!

  6. Rosie August 18, 2015

    If true then I think she has a chance at a #1 debut. Everyone releasing that month is currently announcing their albums and so far no other major artist is releasing that day, though that might change.

  7. RoyalKev August 18, 2015

    I really cannot wait for this album to drop. Something tells me it will be her best since TVR. Janet definitely have my coins. I’m almost at the point where I’m starting not to care how much I spend on her.

    • Ka August 18, 2015

    Yes Queen of Music. I am ready for the album the tour and whatever else she baking in that kitchen. I believe she doing what she wants to do we just have to be patient and Mother is trying to hit the Grammy stage next year too…This album must be Grammy worthy if they pressed on hitting the deadlines. **As I sip CoffeeBeans**

  12. Keri Qween August 18, 2015

    • Barb-wire August 18, 2015

      Wasn’t Janitor Hilson releasing her mixtape this month? Or was that one of her lies to stay relevant?

      • Keri Qween August 18, 2015

        Isn’t plastic minaj still struggling for platinum with 1500 singles? Still selling those tickets on groupon for $20 sis and still struggling to fill 48% of her seats?

      • Black power August 18, 2015

        When will one of Onikas projects ever go platinum again??? Wait for it ….. NEVER

      • Keri Qween August 18, 2015

        The Welfare Barbz need to focus

  13. Barb-wire August 18, 2015

    The Queen better come through, this will be the first album I buy this year. The only worthy one since the The Pink Print last year.

  14. ratedxxx August 18, 2015

    Not a huge Janet fan….but no sleeep is my jam…..I’m actually waiting to see what the album is going to sound like..

    • Janatic August 18, 2015

      You sit right there and wait while I wait for my copy to come in the mail. I ordered it months ago on the day I bought tickets to her show. I will buy at least one more copy so I have one for the car.

  15. Navy Nick August 18, 2015

    Yes lord, amen!!!! Too excited…

  16. Lake Erie August 18, 2015

    Yes Yes Yes! I am so excited. I’ve been bumping her past albums heavy lately. Haven’t listened to 20.Y.O in years, I almost forgot how good that album was. Nothing dated about her music. Sounds like it couldve been released today.

  17. Maudey August 18, 2015

    I cannot wait!!!

  18. Cake like Lady GaGa August 18, 2015

    • Ka August 18, 2015

      PREACHING!!!

  22. Qaz August 18, 2015

    Comedy. Gonna enjoy watching this album not sell as much as 100k first week. Janet’s laughable “comeback album” is GOING to flop. Bookmark it!

    • jjsrb August 18, 2015

      100k is great for veteran artist, or any artist nowadays 🙂

  23. Janatic August 18, 2015

    Well I’ve been a fan a long time and I knew this album was coming by September 30th. I think the digital version will drop September 30th and the physical on October 2nd. Also, I think she is cooking up something because that is almost 6 weeks away. Expect the real 1st single to come soon. I bet she already shot the video and did both videos around the same time. I’m ready. Slay me from Fiji to Iceland.

    • Walker August 18, 2015

      LOL@”the real first single.” The “real” first single is already out and failed to become a real hit at a significant format. Stans and their spins. Gotta laugh.

      • Janatic August 18, 2015

        The single did what it was supposed to: promote the tour. I laugh at people who say the single failed when it did make the Hot 100 and went #1 on the AC chart. Janet did not perform or promote it at all. The execs at BMG said they were surprised at the success of the single because it was only meant as an introduction to the era. Now sit down watch Janet slay these arenas sweetie.

      • XoMoDe August 18, 2015

        Whenever a single doesn’t do well enough, delusional fans try to act like it wasn’t a ‘real’ and was just some promo thing. No Sleeep was sent to radio, has two videos, features a popular rapper, and most of all is commercially available to the public for purchase. It most certainly *is* the ‘real’ first single. It just wasn’t that successful.

      • Janatic August 18, 2015

        Well let me put this in a language you can understand. She was never planning to release her album with “No Sleeep” as the lead single.

  24. JanStan August 18, 2015

    When I bought concert tix they said the album would be received by 9/30 so this all makes sense. What the real question though is what the hell is the deal with touring prior to even announcing any album deets. Fortunately her tour is doing well depite that fact but it was definitely a risk. Cant imagine how much better the tour would do had she actually been promoting it outside of a few Facebook posts. Guess the JanStans are out in force this era.

  25. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig August 18, 2015

    No Sleeep has significantly grown on me, especially after I played it in my car with the bass up – the background is reminiscent to a chopped and screwed version of Blackstreet’s ‘No Diggity’
    _____
    Moreover, I’m laughing at you spiteful hœs thinking that J gives several fvcks about your critiques. She’s not going anywhere bïtches, and I dare you hœs to look like her when your her age.

  26. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) August 18, 2015

    She’s so beautiful, inside and out. But she will flop… But honestly that’s ok because she’s Janet.
