Janet Jackson Leaves Def Jam Records

Janet Jackson cut ties with Island Def Jam Music Group and is officially a free agent, super producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins tells Rap-Up.

“We didn’t get the support from the record company,” Darkchild discloses. “[Janet] felt like it wasn’t pushed. I felt like it wasn’t pushed correctly. She just didn’t get her just dues as an artist of that magnitude.”

Darkchild also shared that he’ll probably be involved in Janet‘s next record: “I could make an album with her, possibly me, Jimmy Jam, and Terry Lewis. Keep it real simple. They focus on what they’re great at, I focus on what I’m great at. We come together and make a classic Janet record.”
