Janet Jackson reveals she plans to release new music, but fans may have to be patient. In a new cover story for “Essence,” she says the wait may take a little longer because she’s focusing on being a mom right now.
The legendary singer-songwriter shares her five-year-old son, Eissa Al Mana, with her ex-husband, Wissam Al Mana. And before she heads back into the recording studio, she’s devoting her time to her child. Jackson knows fans are ready for new music, but she says, “My number one job is being a mama.”
“Even though it's something that I absolutely love, it still is my work, my job,” she explains. “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.”
