Is Janet Jackson back in the studio working on a new album?
Are 'Nothing' and 'Heartbeat Love' indicators of where she's headed musically?
So when will we get a new album from Janet Jackson? It turns out it could be quite some time.
Although she has two songs out there right now, “Nothing” and her collaboration with Pitbull,” Heartbeat Love,” Miss Jackson has no plans since leaving Def Jam following 2008’s commercially disappointing “Discipline.”
“There was a time where I was actually in the studio and I was recording, but I’m not working on an album,” Jackson tells Rolling Stone. “There have been a lot of record labels that have asked me to sit down and talk with them, but I don’t know if I want to do something completely independent, or go with a major.”
“Nothing” is featured in the new Tyler Perry film, “Why Did I Get Married Too,” which features Jackson, and “Heartbeat Love” she tells Rolling Stone she did as a favor for producer Rodney Jerkins.
You can check out Ms. Jackson in "Why Did I Get Married Too" when it opens this nationwide on Friday.
