Alicia Keys, Estelle, LL Cool J, Monica and Ruben Studdard are also booked for the music festival to be held in New Orleans.

Janet Jackson has been named the headliner of this summer's Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana. The reclusive pop superstar will close the opening night of the weekend event on July 2.

It will be the "Nasty" singer's first full performance since 2008 - and her first since the death of her brother Michael Jackson.

Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys have already been confirmed as the other headliners. Arrested Development, Estelle, Lalah Hathaway, LL Cool J, Mint Condition, Monica and Ruben Studdard are also on the bill.

Janet Jackson has a new song called "Nothing" recently coming out in digital retailers. The track is recorded for her new movie "Why Did I Get Married Too?" and will probably be performed live during the upcoming gig.
