Janet Jackson Solo Music Career
Under A&M Records and the management of her father, Jackson released two albums, “Janet Jackson” (1982) and “Dream Street” (1984). After her second album she terminated business affairs with her family, and released her third album “Control” (1986), which featured a more urban and mature sound than her previous releases. “Control” was an immense success, receiving six Billboard Awards, three Grammy nominations, and winning four American Music Awards from twelve nominations.
With the release of her fourth album “Rhythm Nation 1814” (1989), Jackson solidified her status as a star in her own right, away from the shadow of her famous family. It peaked at number one on the Billboard 200, and was certified platinum six times by the RIAA. It was the first album in history to produce number one hits in three separate calendar years. The music video for the single “Rhythm Nation” is considered one of the most iconic and popular in history, establishing Jackson as a fashion icon; the long form of the “Rhythm Nation” music video also won a Grammy Award. Furthermore, her Rhythm Nation World Tour of 1990 was the most successful debut tour in history at the time, and set a record for the fastest sell-out of Japan’s Tokyo Dome.
After fulfilling her A&M contract, Jackson signed a multimillion-dollar deal with Virgin Records. Valued at between $32 – $50 million, it was the largest female music recording contract of all time, up to that point. Her first album with Virgin, “janet.” (1993), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and included five number-one singles, including the Grammy-winning single “That’s the Way Love Goes.”
Her next two albums, “The Velvet Rope” (1997) and “All For You” (2001), also debuted at the top of the charts and sold a combined total of sixteen million copies worldwide. At the end of the 1990s, she was named as the second most successful recording artist of the decade after Mariah Carey by Billboard magazine. Jackson’s other releases include “Damita Jo” (2004), “20 Y.O.” (2006), “Discipline” (2008), and “Unbreakable” (2015). “Unbreakable” was actually released under her own record label, Rhythm Nation, which she launched in partnership with BMG Rights Management. In 2019, she embarked on the “Janet Jackson: A Special 30th Anniversary Celebration of Rhythm Nation” tour. In 2023, Jackson hit the road again on the “Together Again Tour.”
Decades into her career, Jackson remains an important pop artist with an impressive legacy. In 2004, Jackson became the most-searched news story in Internet history (as reported by the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records) when, during the Super Bowl halftime show, Justin Timberlake tore her shirt open, exposing one bare breast. Jackson called the moment an accident and refused to apologize to CBS.
