Janet Jackson Announces New LP ‘Black Diamond’ And 2020 Tour

Janet Jackson is back!

The singer has announced her new album, Black Diamond, the follow up to 2015’s Unbreakable.

Jackson explained the meaning behind the album title in a statement saying “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.”

She also announced a supporting 34-date arena tour that kicks off in Miami on June 24th and wraps up August 23rd in Tacoma, Washington. Along with new music, Jackson will perform her groundbreaking 1989 album Rhythm Nation.

Tickets go on sale February 13th at 12 PM local time. Check out all the dates below. European and other international dates will be announced at a later time.
