Janet Jackson Confirms on 'Fallon' That 'Black Diamond' Tour Will Come With New Album!

Janet Jackson made a rare late-night appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (February 10) and had a pleasant surprise for her fans!

The 52-year-old entertainer announced that along with her just revealed Black Diamond World Tour that she will also release a new album called Black Diamond, her first in five years since Unbreakable.

“It’s the toughest of the stones, of the diamonds, to cut. I heard that immediately. It’s hard to hurt, to destroy. And in my last few years, I’ve come to realize that I’m incredibly strong,” Janet explained to Jimmy about the title. “I see myself as this rock, you know, rough around the edges and just want to share some of my strengths and stories.”

Janet Jackson also talked a bit about recording her 1986 breakout album Control and told a story about how a catcalling man inspired the now iconic “Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty” line from her hit “Nasty Boys.”
