Janet Jackson Announces Upcoming Tour

Courtney Rose

Even though today is Janet Jackson’s birthday, she gave her fans an exciting surprise.

The songstress took a major announcement to twitter at midnight EST. May 16th, when she linked a video of her speaking in what seems to be a studio setting. “I promised you would hear it from my lips, and now you will,” she began. “This year: new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.”

The 49 year old accompanied the video link with “My Conversation” which we can presume that it has something to do with the upcoming album. Jackson also hashtagged another possible album hint  “#ConversationsInACafe.”

Producer Jimmy Jam, who has been a longtime collaborator of the pop sensation, dropped several hints of his own via Twitter hours before the surprise was revealed.

This will be the first we’ve heard from Janet Jackson musically since she released “Discipline” in 2008.
