Janet Jackson teases upbeat new song 'The Great Forever,' confirms album title

Janet Jackson Announces Unbreakable World Tour

Janet Jackson's return continues! After giving us the moody, laid-back "No Sleeep" earlier this year, Janet (or Ms. Jackson if you're nasty) is teasing a second song from her upcoming album. And this one steps up the energy quite a bit.

Called "The Great Forever," Jackson uploaded a 24-second snippet of the enticing tune and shared a photo of the lyrics as well. The lyric sheet seems to confirm suspicions that her album is called Unbreakable, which isn't surprising since that's also the name of her impending world tour. With strong shades of brother Michael, "The Great Forever" is co-written by her longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
