Janet Jackson is celebrating another year around the sun!

On Tuesday, Jackson marked her 57th birthday with a social media post including a fierce solo shot and a video from her birthday festivities.

"Thank you to everyone for all the beautiful bday wishes. They all made this bday extra special for me 😘😘😘 I love you guys," she captioned the post, which featured a stunning photo of her in a leopard, bodycon dress and white sneakers.

In the next slide, the "Rhythm Nation" singer included a video of a strawberry-covered birthday cake being presented to her inside a nightclub as the crowd cheered.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Grammy-winner celebrated inside the Divine Lorraine Hotel, where the Roots' Questlove hosted a party for her.

Jenna Dewan wrote, "Happy birthday we love you! 😘❤️❤️."

Earlier this week, Jackson hung out with pal Tom Cruise during her Charlotte, North Carolina stop on her Together Again Tour. She posted a photo with him on her Instagram.

Cruise isn't the only star to show up for a Jackson gig, as plenty of celebs have posed for pictures with the pop great during her latest trek, including Angela Bassett, Ciara, Katie Holmes, Questlove and more.

"Sooo good seeing all of you," the "Scream" singer wrote to the attendees after a Madison Square Garden show last week. "Thank you for coming to the show…I really hope you enjoyed it. I can't wait to spend some quality time soon! ♥️ #TogetherAgainTour 🫶🏽"

The Together Again Tour kicked off in Hollywood, Florida back in April as Jackson took her show on the road for the first time in nearly four years and brought a massive, 40-song setlist with her.

Her show (named in honor of her The Velvet Rope hit), focused on her decades-long catalog — with live debuts of a few deeper cuts and performances of essentials, such as "All For You," "That's the Way Love Goes" and of course, "Together Again."

Jackson announced the tour back in December when she shared that the 33-date trip around North America would include hip-hop heavyweight Ludacris. It follows Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 anniversary tour, and her Metamorphosis Las Vegas residency from the summer of 2019. Before that, she promoted her Unbreakable album during the three legs of her State of the World Tour from 2017-2019.

"You guys, I miss you so much, I am so excited to see you," Janet said in an Instagram video revealing the news. "You guys have no idea, I've missed you so much, so much, and I can't wait to be with you. I'm so excited."
