Here For It: Bruno Mars Joins Forces with Idol Janet Jackson To Collaborate on Her New Album

Posted June 11, 2018

Just days ago Janet Jackson shared snaps of her in studio recording new music for her forthcoming album. She also dished vaguely on the project in her latest interview with Billboard Magazine, and now the pop titan has secured some backup for her return project in one of her biggest fans, Bruno Mars.

The singer who recently presented Janet with her Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards last month, is said to be penning an upcoming single and more for Janet and her new album according to Metro UK.

This is the collaboration that many of us didn’t even know we needed – but it makes all the sense seeing as Bruno is a huge fan of Janet’s and has been influenced by her work for years. Janet – who recently delivered her first live TV performance in over nine years at the Billboards Music Award – is in the studio recording her next album and is enlisting the help of the 24k Magic hitmaker, our source tells

The insider exclusively told Metro.co.uk that Bruno was over the moon when he found out his icon was a fan of his work. The source said: ‘The pair have been friends for a while but decided now is the perfect time for them to collaborate after catching up at the Billboard Music Awards. ‘Bruno was raised on Janet’s music and was floored when he found out that she was a fan.

‘They speak on the phone often and have pencilled dates in to record tracks for Janet’s next album.’ Janet, who recently revealed Bruno’s music is the first her one-year-old son Eissa connected with, currently lives in London and is expected to record the single with the singer in the city with Grammy Award-winning producing duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. ‘Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are to produce and it’s set to be a single,’ the source added. ‘Janet lives in London so some of the recording sessions will take place here.’

We’re so here for it!
