    https://www.instagram.com/p/BszKWWIhWk_/ Cinq Music (partner of Janets label) posted this. Is it me or are they making a strong suggestion that Jan is indeed releasing a full album? 👀

    Email to Janet (her team)

    There was a mail address provided! I actually sent some stuff to her... It's email@janetjackson.com
  4. Speaking on the tour in 2019: I asked Jan's A&R about the upcoming dates for Europe and normally he wouldn't even respond. Til now. I sent him a compilation of fans' comments and he responded 'Happy 2019 * 3 smiley faces*. Also, head of Janets digital team liked this tweet of mine asking about European dates. Seems like it's around da freakin corner. FINALLY.
  5. Festivals are very effective. Personally I'd prefer seeing Janet only with other fans at a regular show but in terms of gaining new fans and more media attention it would be best to play festivals. I hope it will be a combination of both.
  6. Okaaaay then!!! I'm here for it! (Especially China Love. And oh, add Love Scene!!!). I'm curious what she's gonna do regarding the 2019 setlist and the new material.
  7. European dates are still coming.

    Oh, I just made up my own setlist but I KNEW it was not going to turn out that way. Same with outfit changes and where I wanted them to happen but it was just fan fiction. Janet could never disappoint me cause I have no real expectations.

    Lol, I get it... ...And I still fantasize. For me fantasizing doesn't mean expectations. I fantasized about the SOTW tour months before it kicked off and the reality was way different than I fantasized but that was totally okay. I wasn't disappointed at all. But for a lot of people fantasizing might actually mean expecting...

    Not for me, but I get what you're saying. I have no expectations but that doesn't mean you can't fantasize a bit. 😏
  11. I just watched the entire show last night on YouTube. I love all the professional footage! I'm 1000% confident that, in case the tour wasn't cut short and went overseas in '09, there would've been a dvd-release of it. It must've been her last big production-tour. Outfits were great, choreography was lit. Stage was hella huge, song choices were awesome. Overall, it's an underappreciated tour but I think the main reason for that is simply because there were 16 dates total. If RWU had like 80-100 shows like her previous tours and lasted til late 2009 or so it would've been just as iconic and big as, let's say 'All For You'. Or 'janet.'.

    Am I the only one who has been fantasizing about the new album cover, the title, the artwork, the song titles, the entire sound, the lyrics and upcoming music videos? 👀

    Janet Hits #1 in Mexico

    YAASSS! This is really good news! There are not that many 52 year-old singers with #1 singles internationally . WHAT A QUEEN!
  14. It could be a smart move. Yet, I don't think she needs to do it. The Unbreakable Tour for Europe sold well. Plus, there has been quite some attention for Jan for the last 2, 3 years over here so I think she could sell out all by herself.

    What are Janet's Best Music Videos?

    Her most iconic video is Rhythm Nation (I think) and it's also in my top 3. But Made For Now is also becoming one of my favorite Janet videos. I love the way it was filmed and the diversity. Someone To Call My Lover has this great Summer vibe and will forever remain a personal favorite.
  16. We knew though. Her team has been hinting about international legs for like a year. Plus, Janet said that she was definitely gonna tour overseas with SOTW. But it's great to see the actual dates appearing...
  17. Even though mainstream radio didn't pick up MFN there has been a lot of positive feedback on MFN. Several tv shows in the Netherlands talked about the song and the video and it was doing very well on iTunes for like a week. So a new album will actually give her some exposure. People will be reminded of Miss Janet and yes, THAT will help selling tickets.
  18. I know that. Like I said, Asia is a big market for Jan. Plus, she has been in Asia with every tour (except for RWU). Janet skipped Europe several times so it's basically the die-hard JanFam who is buying tickets for a concert. A new album sure does help. Not that the songs will be played on the radio but there will be attention for it.
  19. Well, my little theory here... Asia is Jan's 2nd biggest market. She doesn't neccesarily have to release a new album or single first to sell out over there. I mean, she's doing two shows in a 14.000 seat-venue. Plus, she visited Asia more consistenly than Europe so she has a better connection with the fans. I think Janet is dropping her new project by March. Then announcing the European tour and possible other international legs (and hey, who knows but maybe she's wrapping up SOTW in the US eventually). She needs to promote a new album to sell out the bigger venues in Europe. I could be totally wrong but this is what I think might happen.
  20. I believe it's coming. Tickets for Asia go on sale in January but I don't believe those two shows are the only ones to be officially announced by her team next month.
  21. Okay this is good. But we need European dates as well!!! #SOTW2019
  22. I'm expecting the album to be announced in January/February with a release for the Spring. And international dates.

    Janet Named the 2018 MTV EMA Global Icon!!

    Truth is that while her team is still promoting MFN Janet is finishing the EP/album. It's a matter of time til there will be an official announcement. And around the same time the international leg will be announced. Outside Organisation is already working on the European tour, so. ??‍♂️

    Janet Named the 2018 MTV EMA Global Icon!!

    Well... Janet was suppose to play these big venues in 2016 and Unbreakable wasn't a big production either. It's no issue.

    Janet Named the 2018 MTV EMA Global Icon!!

    True, but as fans we kinda knew that she was coming because she said so in August & September and several fan groups shared that quote. And the official announcement should be coming from LiveNation and the promoters.
