The artist behind this week's featured announcement requires no introduction. She's a music industry veteran who's been making hits since 1982 and is a member of a show business family who first made a splash two decades before that. This week, Janet Jackson (Miss Jackson, if you nasty) finalized details on her upcoming 11th studio album, Unbreakable.
Now, this isn't technically a new announcement; Miss Jackson had already announced a new album for sometime in the latter half of 2015. She released the first single from the record, "No Sleeep," in June, confirmed the name in August, and this week she revealed the album artwork and release date.
Miss Jackson's first album in seven years will be released on October 2.
