Yuh huh, that ain’t a typo – Janet Jackson’s new track really is spelled as, “No Sleeep”.
Earlier in May, Janet announced that she’ll finally be making a comeback with a full-length album, a first since the death of her brother the late “King of Pop” Michael Jackson. It was said that the 6-time Grammy award-winning artiste had called her surprise announcement “Conversations in a Cafe”, presumably the title or at least the theme of the upcoming album.
In the past, Janet sold more than 140 million albums and last released a studio album in 2008, the electronic-driven “Discipline”. She briefly retreated from public view to grieve after Michael Jackson died in 2009, but has since returned to acting and went on an 80-date tour in 2011 to promote a greatest hits collection.
And now, with a new record label, full-length album, and world tour in the pipeline, Janet has given her fans a new single titled, “No Sleeep” to whet their appetite. This would mark Janet’s first collaboration with long-time producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis in almost a decade. We’ve just heard it and truth be told, we love how sultry and sexy it is. Kinda like wrapping yourself up with silk ;)
Mmhmm, she’s still got it, peeps! If this doesn’t gently ease you into her long-awaited comeback, we don’t know what else will.
“No Sleeep” is Janet’s lead single from her upcoming new album, which should be out before the year ends.
