A multi-platinum selling star with albums about
everything from social injustice to personal breakdown, Jackson channels
serious lyrical concerns through immediately gratifying pop songs. Even at her
most serious, she is never joyless.
After six years of relative silence, she has returned
with Unbreakable, referencing a song
from her late brother Michael’s final record. As the title track announces,
this is home territory for Jackson – an avowal of strength in the face of
hardship. Musically, the album is sleek R&B at its finest. Stand out tracks
like ‘No Sleeep’ and ‘The Great Forever’ build around moonlit grooves, slow-burning
their way into your consciousness.
On March 31st, Jackson plays O2 Arena: a
chance to hear a true icon, still very much at the top of her game.
