Janet Jackson has officially made her comeback into the music industry by releasing her first video in nearly seven years and paying tribute to her late brother Michael.

As Janet walks through the apartment in a video to her new single titled “No Sleeep,” she enters a room where childhood images of herself, with her father Joe and late brother Michael are projected onto the wall.

In a tribute to her brother, who passed away in 2009, she later takes to a staircase in the apartment wearing a wide brimmed fedora hat and flicks the it with a hand gesture and a quick head nod that had become a trademark classic move of Jackson's. The gesture is reminiscent of her brother‘s 1982 hit single Billie Jean.

It has been five years since Jackson’s last album and four since her last tour. She’s already announced a world tour and an upcoming 11th studio album, reported the UK's Daily Mail.
