    Janet Jackson has announced the release of a new studio album called Black Diamond, along with a supporting world tour.

    Black Diamond marks Jackson’s 12th album to date, serving as the follow-up to 2015’s Unbreakable. In a statement, Jackson explained the meaning of the album’s title, saying, “Black Diamonds are the toughest of all the diamonds, the hardest to cut. Isee that as the hardest to hurt or destroy. There is a lot that I have endured. I see myself as a Black Diamond in its purest form. I’m a rock, I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward. I want to show you my strength as well as give you strength.”

    Jackson’s supporting 34-date arena tour will kick off in Miami on June 24th. With dates running  through the end of August, she’ll play high-profile shows at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta; Madison Square Garden in New York City; and Staples Center in Los Angeles, as well as headline the Essence Festival in New Orleans.
