Janet Jackson began her Unbreakable World Tour in Vancouver on Monday night, and opened the show up with a new track featuring Missy Elliott. Little is known about the song, though its title was reported as “Burn It Up,” and it’s expected to be on Jackson’s forthcoming album, Unbreakable.
Before Janet performed, Elliott tweeted “positive vibes” for Jackson, but kept the track a secret. Later in the night she called it a “clubbanggger.”
The show included new songs like “No Sleeep” and “Unbreakable,” but relied heavily on Jackson’s extensive catalog with renditions of “When I Think Of You,” “Rhythm Nation,” and “Miss You Much.”

Unbreakable is due out this fall, and will be Jackson’s first album since 2008’s Discipline. Producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who worked on Jackson’s 2006 record, 20 Y.O., spoke to EW about the album earlier this month, and Jam said, “I think it’s totally different from any of her other albums. But it feels like her. At the end of the day, I go back to that. The thing about this album is there’s a lot of different places that it touches, but at the end of the day, it’s pure Janet.”
