The R&B pop icon also revealed she’s coming out with new music, and that she’s bringing the three-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist and “Fast and Furious” actor Ludacris to join as her special guest.
“Yes, there will be new music,” she said before closing out the video.
The tour will celebrate Jackson’s 50th anniversary in entertainment and will highlight two of her critically acclaimed albums, The Velvet Rope and Janet.

Four years later, she released The Velvet Rope in 1997, which is her sixth studio album. It became Jackson’s fourth consecutive to reach the top of the Billboard 200. The project is certified 10x Platinum and included her 1998 Grammy-winning single, “Got ’til It’s Gone.”
