Janet Jackson will (most likely) not release an album this summer

Standard
There won’t be a Janet Jackson record released this summer through Atlantic Records.

That’s news on Monday because of an article posted by Hip Hop Vibe last week which claimed
Jackson was slated to release a new record on July 10. The news was
based on an uncredited photo of upcoming releases the site assumed to be
an Atlantic Records calendar (because the other artists listed
– iLoveMakonnen, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill and more – are part of the
Atlantic roster). But as an Atlantic Records representative confirmed
to EW (as well as other sites such asStereogumFactJackson will not release an album on Atlantic Records this summer.

So what happened? It’s possible that the photo was of a distributor’s
calendar, and Ms. Jackson will release a record this year (Walmart spoiled the Kendrick Lamar news,
though the date was ultimately incorrect). But with a profile as high
as hers, it’s hard to imagine we wouldn’t have heard a few more
rumblings about the project before now. (Still, as Stereogum pointed out, Sia’s manager tweeted that he heard Jackson was releasing a new album this year.)

Jackson’s last release, the regrettably-named Discipline, came in 2008 via Island Records, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group. (Atlantic Records is owned by Warner Music Group.)
