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.
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!

What why will you make me wait so long for the CD??? and can we please stop calling it her comeback album.. She ever left.
I cannot wait! I have my money ready. I already bought my ticket to the tour. Bring it on Janet!
I want this album!!!!
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.
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.
The one of best due to JD not trying to put his fingers on it, and when it false makes excuses ie the recompense didn’t allow me to…. (the company didn’t tell you to make a wack song then put Khia on it) i’m so geek about this album jj and tl are running it now like back in OOOOOWWWEEE!!!!
Come thru Queen ????
I bet it will outsell Ciara’s last 3 albums combined
Wtf ciara have to do with this you are a hating ass mess and,janet music,sucks I’m no ciara,fan but her songs and voice are better,than whispering,ass janet she married a billionaire and still not happy this family,loves the limelight,go have,some kids and enjoy life with your husband
Hating much boy your bitter Rosy and her husband’s not a billionaire so there I rest my case.
Can’t wait I will definitely add this album to my Playlist come on through Queen of Pop & Secrets Janet show them how a legend really does it the Three Musketeers are back Terry, Jimmy & Janet yes!
Can’t wait love no sleep
And Janet Jackson is the best if you seen her live than you know what I’m talking about .
so shut the from door , and let miss jackson do what she does best rock us out.
buying multiple copies
Yall h*** on here be lyin!
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**
The queen coming to snatch y’all bald..but some of y’all balding b****** don’t have much hair left anyways kii
Wasn’t Janitor Hilson releasing her mixtape this month? Or was that one of her lies to stay relevant?
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?
When will one of Onikas projects ever go platinum again??? Wait for it ….. NEVER
The Welfare Barbz need to focus
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.
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..
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.
Yes lord, amen!!!! Too excited…
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.
I cannot wait!!!
The canadian t***** coming up with excuses already as to why Janet is gonna outsell lana fad rey. Is west coast gold yet?
People are still checking for this so called “comeback”
Yas @ Keri snatching that barb up
Post in the wrong slot like I said above I will certainly add her new album on my Playlist she’s definitely a legend doing her own thang and glad that Janet, Terry, and Jimmy are back together again the original three Musketeers Janet is definitely the Queen of Pop & Secrets!
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!
100k is great for veteran artist, or any artist nowadays 🙂
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
She’s so beautiful, inside and out. But she will flop… But honestly that’s ok because she’s Janet.
