Janet Jackson says she has listened to new music and loves Kendrick Lamar's "Poetic Justice," and she is also working on a new project.
The most radio-friendly single on Kendrick Lamar's debut studio LP, good kid, m.A.A.d city, was the Drake-featured "Poetic Justice" which had a smooth sample from a classic Janet Jackson joint. Now, Miss Jackson says she is actually working on a new project, and says she has been listening to recent music including K.Dot's single.
Janet has taken a five year hiatus from music, and who would blame her as she has recently married a Qatari billionaire, but this year marks the 20th anniversary of her immensely successful album janet, so she is making the media rounds and talking music. While not offering up much information, the R&B sensation says that she has begun conceptualizing the new project, "I am working on a new project now. We are creating the concept and initial thoughts on the music."
Eager fans shouldn't get overly amped to hear new music soon, as Janet plans to take her time in creating this album, "I am excited about the direction we are taking. I don’t want to rush it… I don’t want to put a time constraint on the creative process.”
Scoop Deville made incredible use of her voice on the track "Any Time, Any Place," for Kendrick's cut on GKMC, and the Compton rapper has openly reached out to Janet before saying he wanted her part of the music video. The good news for the rising hip hop star is that Jackson has heard his track, and is a big fan, “I have listened to the music that is out there and I love Kendrick’s ‘Poetic Justice.'"
