Music icon Janet Jackson has enjoyed a career that has lasted nearly five decades. The singer is getting ready to release another studio album and has teased fans with a new video of herself on Instagram.
Jackson, who is considered the blueprint for entertainers of today, uses the social media platform regularly and knows how to keep her fan base talking.
Keep scrolling to see why the saucy clip has been watched hundreds of thousands of times in less than 24 hours.
A Sex Symbol
For many years, Jackson has been named a sex symbol due to her sultry songs and seductive performances.
The “What Have You Done for Me Lately” hitmaker gave birth to her son, Eissa Al Mana, at the age of 50 and insists that being a mom hasn’t stopped her from expressing her sexy side.
“[Being sexy] doesn’t have to change,” she said.
“I think the first thought is, oh you’re a mother now, so that’s out the door. Why? For what reason? If you choose to [express that side of yourself] I don’t think there is anything wrong with it.”
54 Is Just A Number
Time and time again Jackson proves that age is just a number.
For her latest Instagram upload, the 54-year-old wowed her followers wearing an oversized black fur jacket that fell past her knees.
Underneath, the Grammy Award winner teamed the look with a crop top and silk pants of the same color.
Jackson displayed her midriff while tugging the top of her pants.
She pushed her long, dark dreads over her right shoulder and was captured in front of a red backdrop.
Jackson made her poses look effortless and was seemingly participating in a gorgeous new photo shoot that showcased her sexy persona.
How Did Her Fans React?
In the span of 21 hours, Jackson’s video made a huge impression on her 5.2 million followers, racking up more than 330,000 views, 74,000 likes, and over 2,500 comments from her fans — also known as the Jan Fam — who remain very loyal.
“Lawd, you making me hot,” one user wrote, adding numerous eye-heart face emoji.
“Everyone wishes they were that coat right now,” another person commented.
“OMG… My heart can’t handle this… Tooo much of a Friday “Mood”,” remarked a third fan.
“You are one of the greatest inspirations. Love you like a sister,” a fourth account shared.
“Black Diamond” Is Coming
Earlier this year, Jackson announced that she will be releasing a new studio album titled “Black Diamond.”
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it appears that the project had been put to the side for the time being.
Luckily for eager fans, producer Tommy Parker — who worked on her last album “Unbreakable” — discussed the upcoming album in a recent interview with Revolt. Along with stating that the record is still on its way, he explained that Jackson is “speaking very honest about things” and sounds “amazing” on the songs.
