Pop superstar Janet Jackson is gearing up to release her upcoming as-yet-untitled album in February. Jackson is currently working on the album in Atlanta, while longtime boyfriend, producer Jermaine Dupri, lends a hand to Mariah Carey's forthcoming project.

In addition to dropping a new album, Jackson also plans to pen a book about her personal weight struggles. "[I'm] really coming from the soul with it," Jackson said of the project, "and what I was going through at different times in my life, and what possibly brought it about for myself."

The 41-year-old has also been keeping busy with movie roles, including her recent role in Tyler Perry's film ' Why Did I Get Married?'
