Janet Jackson has some new music coming down the pipeline and she’s gearing up to go on tour this summer. More inside…

R&B legend Janet Jackson is making a come back.

Damita Jo has some new music coming down the pipeline AND a new tour, so gather your coins. There was drama in 2016 when she kept delaying/postponing her "Unbreakable World Tour." Then, she decided she would delay the tour again to "start a family" and welcomed a baby boy in January 2017. In April 2017, she split from her billionaire BAE Wissam Al Mana. There was drama following their split, so she was busy dealing with that. In September 2017, she hit the road for her "State of the World Tour."

Now, she’s ready to give her fans another tour. 

The "Rhythm Nation" singer will be hitting the road this summer to bring her new “Black Diamond World Tour” to the masses. The tour will feature music from Janet’s coming alum titled, Black Diamond, as well as “a special performance of Rhythm Nation 1814,” according to a press release.

The 53-year-old entertainer will kick off her tour in June in Miami, Florida. She’ll hit major cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles before wrapping up the tour in August in Tacoma, Washington.

The five-time Grammy winner - who was inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last year - appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” where she talked about her album’s title and how she came up with it.

”I’ve come to realize in recent years that I’m incredibly strong. I see myself as this rock,” she said.

By the way, we're loving her braids and she looked amazing.
