Janet Jackson announced her upcoming Black Diamond album accompanied by a tour on her Instagram. Black Diamond is the 53-year-old’s first studio album since 2015’s Unbreakable.
Janet wrote on her Instagram: ”Hey U Guys! I’ve heard all your wishes and now from my lips to your ears. I’m working on my new album and going on a brand-new World Tour this summer! Both titled Black Diamond.
“Black Diamonds are the toughest of all the diamonds, the hardest to cut. I see that as the hardest to hurt or destroy. There is a lot that I have endured. I see myself as a Black Diamond in its purest form. I’m a rock, I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward. I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength.”
The “That’s The Way Loves Goes and Got ’til It’s Gone” singer will kick off the Black Diamond Tour in Miami, Florida in June and play a total of 34 dates in North America, before hitting Europe.
This tour is expected to promote her new upcoming album and with feature performances of the entire Rhythm Nation 1814 album, which recently marked its 30th anniversary.
