56-year-old ‘Together Again’ artist Janet Jackson covers the latest issue of Essence Magazine, lensed by photographer Yu Tsai.
In her accompanying piece, Jackson talks about upcoming new music saying: “It’s so funny because I see the fans asking, “When are we going to get Black Diamond?” “Will you please release?” 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.”
