She’s back! Well, almost, anyway. The ever-elusive Janet Jackson was all smiles when she was seen arriving at an L.A. rehearsal studio on Thursday, May 28. The “Nasty” singer, 49, is preparing not just a world tour this year, but also a new album, her first in seven years.
The Grammy winner was dressed to fly under the radar in a black one-piece hooded sweatsuit and black cap. Though she had the hood up, her curly locks flowed and she smiled for photogs as she entered the rehearsal studio, no doubt to work on what will be some amazing dance moves for the tour.
The superstar last toured in 2011, and her most recent, 10th studio album, Discipline, was released in 2008.
Jackson has not yet revealed the title of her new record, but she may have dropped a hint with the announcement of new music earlier this month, using the hashtag #ConversationsInACafe.

Though Jackson may be busy preparing for the upcoming tour and album release, she did have a bit of fun recently. As Us Weekly previously revealed, her husband, businessman Wissam Al Mana, threw a surprise birthday party for her on May 16, and the singer partied until 1:30 in the morning. A source also told Us that the Poetic Justice star had “two beautiful cakes” at the shindig held at L.A.’s Hyde Lounge, which 30 of her closest friends and family attended.
