It comes after Janet – who’s sold over 100 million records – recently gave fans an update on the status of her long-delayed 12th studio album, Black Diamond.

‘It’s so funny because I see the fans asking, “When are we going to get Black Diamond? Will you please release?”‘ the Oscar-nominated songwriter told Essence in June.

‘Sometimes things happen that you don’t expect to happen, and you have to figure things out – or you’re in a space in your life when you have to take a step back and take a break for a minute. Even though it’s something that I absolutely love, it still is my work, my job.

‘There will be music at some point. Exactly when? I can’t say just yet, but there will be. I love it too much not to do it. This is all I know. There’s so much that I want to do – but my number one job is being a mama.’

Janet was referring to her five-year-old son Eissa from her five-year marriage to third husband – Qatari billionare Wissam Al Mana – which ended in 2017.

The All For You singer has been based in London in recent years, as she’s raising her little boy there.

Even after looking back at all she had accomplished throughout her career, the performer said she wasn’t one to put much stock in professional accomplishments.

‘I’ve never been that person to have my awards on display. There’s nothing wrong with it, that’s just not me. Being able to wake up and see my baby another day. The space I might be in at that moment within my soul. What I’ve accomplished within myself. How far I’ve come from that child there to the woman that I am today. That’s success,’ she explained. 

‘If you came to my home, you would never know — if you did not know who I was — that I am an entertainer. I don’t have one award on my wall.’
