Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation record label and its distribution partner BMG set an October 2, 2015 date for the wide release of the superstar's first studio album in seven years. "Unbreakable" is available now on iTunes. The initial single release, "No Sleeep," raced to #1 on Billboard's Adult R&B chart where it is currently reigning for a sixth week, breaking Ms. Jackson’s previous record on this chart (Her “I Get Lonely” led the chart for five consecutive weeks in 1998). The Queen of Pop surprised her fans last week by releasing through social media another track from the album, “BURNITUP!” (Feat. Missy Elliott). Dance floor-jam “BURNITUP!” opens Janet’s UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR show, which continues to sell out as dates go on sale.
The Unbreakable album constitutes a historic re-teaming of the iconic performer, now a holder of 46 record chartings with producer/songwriter superstars Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The Unbreakable release comes on the 30th anniversary of their groundbreaking collaboration on Ms. Jackson’s "Control" album.
