Janet Jackson’s ‘Unbreakable’ Is Here, She ‘Hopes You Enjoy’
Janet Jackson's Unbreakable title track has arrived, and it's a chilled-out declaration of gratitude for all the love she's received in both her personal and public life. She even shared the lyrics with fans on September 2, so you can easily sing along in the comfort of your own home.
"Unbreakable" has an instant-classic sound that's very Janet — particularly that spoken word outro, plus the harmonies on the chorus as she sings lyrics that could frankly double as a hymn: "What I share with you / Ever sacred, everlasting / The greatest love for me, I love you / And it's pure, and it will endure." Her words of praise could apply to a loving partner, faithful fans, and possibly God. It must be noted that it sounds absolutely nothing like the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song, either.
Listen to "Unbreakable" below, and don't forget to pre-order her album on iTunes.
Janet revealed the track list for her first studio album in seven years yesterday (September 4). The 17-song release features a song with Missy Elliott, "Burnitup!," which she's already debuted in her live show, as well as her "No Sleeep" single with J. Cole. The album's drop date comes on the 30th anniversary of Jackson's landmark Control album with longtime producers and songwriting partners Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Fans who catch the first leg of her Unbreakable World Tour may hear even more new songs in coming weeks.
Can't get enough Janet? Check out all the features from our month-long celebration of her return to music — and like the icon herself, we're "glad you're here, hope you enjoy."
