It's the moment we've all been waiting for!

Janet Jackson debuted her highly anticipated new single "No Sleeep" to much fanfare Monday morning. The 49-year-old singer, who is recording her first album in seven years and will kick off a world tour later this year, worked with veteran producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the laid-back track. "I dedicate this to My Love," she tweeted, referring to husband, business magnate Wissam Al Mana.

(Yes, she spelled the title with three e's.)

Jackson teased fans with a snippet over the weekend.

The track opens with Jackson crooning the chorus: "You're missing me / I'm missing you / Wherever we meet / We ain't gonna get no sleep / You came to me to get back with you /'Cause we are complete / We ain't gonna get no sleep."

"A vision rolling round in my head / But I don't really talk about it / I'm loving what you're doing to me / And I don't wanna talk about it / Day and night, I dream of us doing whatever / But I guess I'll have to wait until that day comes," she sings in the first verse. In the second verse, Jackson sings, "Stay wide awake / For every moment we spend together / Cause every second shows away feels like forever."

Jackson's vocals are especially impressive in the bridge. "Thought I told you sleep away can't dream so fade outside the box, my baby," she sings. "No matter how much you are missing me, I read between the lines / And touch and hope it rains."

Jackson's world tour begins Aug. 31 at the Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
