Janet Jackson announces new album, tour

Happy Birthday Janet Jackson!

And she closed out her special day with a big announcement for her fans in the video below — a new album and tour promised for this year. This will be her first studio album in 7 years. I think we’re all at least curious to see what new music (and which big new stars) she has up her sleeve…


Nicole Scherzinger f/ T.I. “Electric Blue”

Flash back to 2007 for a second when T.I. & Nicole Scherzinger were on top of the charts (and each other) in the steamy music video/single for “Whatever U Like”. That’s where the above image was captured and brought back today as a #TBT of sorts with a new single from the two for Nicole’s upcoming album, Big Fat Lie, now below, 7 years later. (Seven years ago? Feels like yesterday…)

“Electric Blue” is a smooth Janet Jackson inspired single that is definitely different than their previous collab. Will it top the charts the same? That’s remained to be seen, but for fans of either artist I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
