Once news of Janet Jackson's musical return broke on May 16, her die-hard fans, who put out a social APB alert to find their "missing" icon, shared their excitement and have not stopped since.  As the youngest of the Jackson dynasty continues to release new information about her upcoming album and Unbreakable World Tour, her fans have been even more excited than they have since her last album in 2011.

Janet, who is very active on her social media, wanted to acknowledge her gratitude for their unwavered support.  True to Jackson's mysterious aura, she released footage of a notebook with handwritten lyrics on Twitter.  In it, new recorded vocals from Ms. Jackson are heard for the first time in four years.

She also released a video from her dance auditions for her upcoming tour but again, the Damita Jo singer was not seen in the video.
