Eight months after giving birth to her first child, Eissa, the "Love Will Never Do" singer showed off her unbelievable post-baby body on Thursday, September 7 at the opening night of her "State of the World" tour in Lafayette, Louisiana.

A source told Entertainment Tonight last month that the singer, 51, has lost over 65 pounds in preparation for her State of the World Tour and "has her pre-baby body back and then some". The choice of opening song, a socially conscious tune which calls out prejudice, ignorance, and bigotry, was particularly special for fans as Janet hasn't performed The Knowledge, or her follow-up track State of the World, since 1990.

Jackson gave some genuine '90s vibes for her Lafayette, Los Angeles, visit stop and even paraded her mark all dark look.

On Friday, Jackson is arriving in Houston for her Saturday show but will spend the day extending a helping hand at several shelters to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. This is her eighth concert tour.

The settlement, in which fans received an undisclosed amount for the postponement of her tour after she became pregnant with son Eissa, is one legal worry off of Janet's plate as she sorts out her divorce from billionaire ex-husband Wissam Al Mana. Jackson holds the record for the most consecutive top 10 hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart by a female artist, with 18 hits.
