The first single from Janet Jackson's as-yet-untitled new album is expected to hit U.S. radio outlets in May 2006

Virgin Urban president told Billboard that the first single from 's upcoming album will be released to radio in May. Elsewhere, the album itself will then be released at the end of September.

Janet reportedly is once again working with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the new set. "It's a milestone year for us and for the collaboration," Jam said while adding "It'll be 20 years since the release of (Jackson's 1986 album) 'Control,' so there's definitely a little bit of a nod to that on the new album."

Asked on Dupri involvement on the new set, Jam simply remarked "You'll hear my voice on some songs. But I don't know if Jermaine Dupri the artist exists anymore. I'm not into that right now. It's far on the back burner. It's probably in the cards somewhere down the road. But it's the last thing I'm thinking about right now."
