After a brief stint at Island Records, R&B/pop superstar Janet Jackson is terminating her deal with the label. Jackson's departure shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering the diva expressed some discontent with the promotion of her last album, 'Discipline.' "I'm trying to figure out a way to say this, but just to say it and to be quite honest, they just stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album, so I don't think you're going to hear another single off this album," the singer said in an interview.

Jackson's rep made the announcement today and it seems that with singer's decision to sever ties with Island without another deal in place means that she's a free agent. "At her request, the record label has agreed to dissolve their working relationship," Jackson's rep said in a statement to People. "Now more than 20 years after the release of her iconic album, 'Control,' Janet will have autonomy over her career, without the restrictions of a label system."
