Music royals are a rarity in today’s blink and you miss it Pop culture climate.
However, last night Janet Jackson showed and proved that her crown not only remains in intact, but also that it hasn’t lost any of its shine.
The Queen of Pop took to the stage in Vancouver, Canada to perform the first show on her hotly anticipated ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ — and Ms. Jackson did not disappoint.
Her past jaunt saw the singer journey through the hits, yet this trek smartly does that while laying the foundation for her eagerly awaited new album, ‘Unbreakable.’
So while the likes of ‘All For You,’ ‘If,’ and ‘Nasty’ were delivered with fine finesse, new numbers such as ‘No Sleeep’ and the LP’s title track were introduced live. The Missy Elliott assisted opener, believed to be titled ‘Burn It Up,’ received an especially roaring reception. [Editor’s note: it’d be almost criminal if this isn’t a single. Preferably the next single. But we digress…]
In other Jackson news, the superstar’s current single ‘No Sleeep’ returned to #1 on the Billboard Adult R&B songs chart — coincidentally on the the same day the tour kicked off.
Check out what the diva had to say about the honor below, where more snaps and footage from the show awaits…
Hey you guys, Thank you for making No Sleeep #1 again & for showing so much love at last night's show in Vancouver. Love Janet ???? #NoSL333P
