The singer broke down during the first show in Vancouver, which included a tribute to her brother Michael, who would have turned 57 years old the day before.

“I love you so much, so much, so much,” she told the audience as she wiped tears from her eyes. “And I’ve missed you!”

Janet, who hasn't toured in four years, performed to a nearly sold out crowd. The singer will also be putting out a new album soon, although a release date has not been set.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, her longtime collaborator Jimmy Jam, who also worked with Michael, opened up about the record.

"The thing about this album is there’s a lot of different places that it touches, but at the end of the day, it’s pure Janet,” he said.

Missy Elliot has collaborated with her on a new song, “Unbreakable” which made its debut at the Vancouver tour opener.
