The set list even offered a glimpse of her upcoming album of the same name by way of a Missy Elliott collaboration that opened the show. While you can only hear the unnamed collab through fan-footage thus far (h/t Stereogum), it definitely sounds more Jackson than Elliott. It’s a high-ish energy smooth jam with confident verses from Missy, who appears onscreen but not in person during the song.
Jackson’s DJ then plays a bit of Elliott’s “Lose Control,” which segues into Janet’s own “Control,” a connection that the Internet made at least three years ago.
Watch footage of the new song below.
