It's been 7 years since Janet Jackson has released a studio album.
Unbreakable marks both her return to the studio and her renewed collaboration with her longtime producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, which has already proven a successful move. The album's first single "No Sleeep," featuring J. Cole, has become Janet's longest-running #1 on Billboard's Adult R&B Songs.
It seems as though as the years go by, Janet's voice parallels that of her brother Michael's more and more, and that is especially evident on this album now more than ever. We're especially partial to the "The Great Forever," which sounds to us like a track Michael would have recorded or, better yet, would have sang alongside Janet, creating a mega, chart-topping hit.
Unbreakable features 19 tracks, including the fiery "BURNITUP!," featuring Missy Elliott, and the more mellow but impactful "Well Traveled."
