Nelly and Janet Jackson are set for a spectacular reunion.

On Tuesday, Jackson announced that she will be bringing her hugely successful Together Again Tour back to North America this summer with Nelly as a special guest.

Nelly and Jackson linked up in 2006 for the song "Call On Me," which featured on Jackson's ninth studio album "20 Y.O."

The track was a chart success all over the globe.

Jackson's Together Again Tour is celebrating her 50th anniversary in entertainment.

Produced by Live Nation, the original 2023 leg of the tour was the highest selling of Jackson's career, featuring 36 sold-out shows.

The new leg of the tour kicks off on June 4 and consists of 35 shows, including stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Brooklyn, Denver, Cleveland, and Phoenix.

According to Variety, Nelly will be "showcasing his greatest hits spanning the last two decades."

Janet Jackson isn't the only person Nelly is reuniting with this year.

The "Ride Wit Me" rapper and his beau Ashanti are also set to drop their first track together since 2008's “Body On Me" with Akon.

Earlier this month, producer Jermaine Dupri gave fans a teaser of the new track on his TikTok account.

“Boy, I really want to stay. So we can play this little game we play,” Ashanti can be heard singing in Dupri's video.

Dupri said that the song will feature his upcoming EP which is set to be released sometime later this year.
