In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the 43-year-old Diva disputed reports by ex-boyfriend, music producer Jermaine Dupri, who claims he’s working on an album with her:
Janet Jackson has two tracks in rotation—“Nothing” and her Pitbull collab “Heartbeat Love”—but she told Rolling Stone that she’s not working on the follow-up to 2008’s commercially disappointing Discipline, nor has she signed a new deal after parting ways with IDJ. “There was a time where I was actually in the studio and I was recording, but I’m not working on an album,” she says. “There have been a lot of record labels that have asked me to sit down and talk with them, but I don’t know if I want to do something completely independent, or go with a major… I haven’t decided on exactly where I want to go or what I want to do.” “Nothing” is a one-off she co-wrote and co-produced with boyfriend Jermaine Dupri for the new Tyler Perry film Why Did I Get Married Too? As for the second song, Jackson said she did it as a favor for Rodney Jerkins, for “fun.”
