Janet Jackson released “No Sleeep,” her first single in five years, on Monday. Listen below!
With no warning, Jackson tweeted a YouTube link to the audio at 9 a.m. Eastern Time. “I dedicate this to My Love,” she wrote. The singer added the hashtags, “#NoSL333P,” and “#ConversationsInACafe.”
Jackson’s “love” is likely her husband, Wissam Al Mana, whom she married in 2012. As Gossip Cop reported, “Conversations In A Café” is believed to be the title of Jackson’s upcoming album, though it could actually be called “Unbreakable,” which is the name she is using for her world tour. Jackson announced in May that she was working on new music.
The official album announcement came in early June, followed by the touring schedule last week. While no release date for the record has been revealed yet, Jackson is set to hit the road on August 31, with dates currently scheduled through November. The superstar has been hyping the concerts on Twitter, posting videos that introduce fans to her new backup dancers.
“No Sleeep” (which is purposefully misspelled) will be available for purchase as a single at midnight on Tuesday. Listen to the full song below. Does it sound like old Janet Jackson to you? Does the track meet your expectations?
