Janet Jackson fans, if you’re waiting for the singer to announce the release date of her next album, don’t hold your breath.
According to her ex-boyfriend, producer Jermaine Dupri, the singer is calling it quits.
“She is through with recording full-length albums and will focus on putting out singles and securing quality acting roles for the remainder of her career,” states Dupri.
Disappointing album sales are speculated to have played a large role in Jackson’s decision to put her music career on hiatus.
“We just did the one song, ‘Nothing,’ for the Why Did I Get Married Too? soundtrack,” says Dupri. “Last time I heard, she really didn’t want to do an album. She wanted to just do singles every once in a while.”
After a stellar performance in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too? it is quite clear that Jackson’s focus has shifted to acting. –christian johnson
