Janet Jackson woke up the world with her new single, â€œNo Sleepâ€. â€œI dedicate this to My Loveâ€ she said referencing her husband, Wissam Al Mana when she posted the new track on TwitterÂ on Monday.
If you loved her 1993 Grammy Award winning song, â€œThatâ€™s The Way Love Goesâ€ then youâ€™ll enjoy â€œNo Sleepâ€ which was produced by the legendary duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
According to Page Six, Jackson will be making her long awaited return to music on stage at the upcoming BET Awards. She last performed a tribute to her brother, Michael Jackson at the BET Awards in 2009. Ciara is said to be one of the performers that will pay homage.
Some may have questioned if Jackson, 49, could stake a successful return to music when fellow legend, Mariah Carey, 45, has had trouble connecting with a younger generation. Though her Vegas residency is said to be doing okay, Careyâ€™s latest album,Â #1 to InfinityÂ sold a mere 15,000 copies.
Jackson, however, seems to have the formula for success. In a matter of hours, â€œNo Sleepâ€ is #1 on Billboards â€œTwitter Trending 140 Chartâ€. She out ranks Taylor Swiftâ€™s â€œBad Bloodâ€ and Selena Gomezâ€™s â€œGood For Youâ€ featuringÂ A$AP Rocky.
