Janet Jackson's New Album Drops In October And Features A Missy Elliott Collaboration

What has she done for us lately? A lot.

Prepare the way, rhythm nation: Janet Jackson's comeback is all the more official. 

A video of the opening number from Jackson's newly launched world tour appeared online on Tuesday, showing Missy Elliott projected onto the stage's screens. Now the tracklist for the singer's new album, "Unbreakable," has been released, and it confirms that the duo do indeed have a collaboration on the horizon. They previously teamed up for a gritty remix of the 2001 song "Son of a Gun," featuring Carly Simon.

Produced and co-written by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who have worked with Jackson since 1986's "Control" album, "Unbreakable" is a 17-track collection with a J. Cole cameo and a few titles that boast creative spellings. One of those is "No Sleeep," the single she released to promote the fresh material. The album drops Oct. 2.
