Janet Jackson celebrated her 49th birthday last month by revealing some exciting news. She tweeted a video promising fans “new music, new world tour, a new movement.” Rumors about a comeback surfaced after an uncredited photo hinting at upcoming releases via Atlantic Records hit the Internet. But as quickly as they came, they passed as a rep for the label denied she’d be releasing an album through them. Fans were left confused. What gives Janet?
Well, it turns it they weren’t lying…and neither was she. Janet Jackson officially confirmed news that her first album in seven years will release this fall, but via BMG and under her newly-formed label Rhythm Nation.
