Janet Jackson will receive the first-ever Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award at this weekend’s BET Awards.

Before she accepts her award, the 49-year-old singer will receive a dance tribute from today’s biggest stars including Chris Brown, Ciara, Jason Derulo, and Tinashe.

The BET Awards will also include performances from Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, Ne-Yo, and the cast of “Empire.”

Janet released her new single “No Sleeep” to digital retailers this week, and her first album in seven years is due this fall on Rhythm Nation Records/BMG.

Here is her iconic duet with Michael Jackson "Scream" which is still the most expensive music video ever made at a whopping $7,000,000
