    In 1981, Janet and her two older sisters LaToya and Rebbie had wanted to start their own musical group, but disagreements between the older sisters forced the group to disband before ever making a record. Although she was asked by her father Joseph to start a singing career, Janet was uncomfortable with being in the recording studio feeling she wasn't as talented vocally as her brothers, particularly brother Michael, who was becoming a pop superstar thanks to his albums, Off The Wall and Thriller.

    Nonetheless, at the age of sixteen, she released her debut album simply called Janet Jackson though the teenager protested that her last name shouldn't be on the cover. Produced by soul singers Angela Winbush, Rene Moore and Leon Slyvers of the famed Slyvers family music group, the album reached #6 on the Billboard R&B album charts, and spent 45 weeks in the Top 50 and hit #63 on the Billboard Pop albums chart.

    ...and then came Control.

    ...


    Janet remains the only artist to be nominated in the Pop, R&B, Dance, Rock and Rap singles charts simultaneously at the Grammy Awards.


    Janet led the way for many black females to break through in the pop music industry, long before 'Formation', there was 'Rhythm Nation'.



    Singer, songwriter, producer, actress, dancer, performer, icon, nipple flasher, concert delayer, feminist and mother.


    Janet Jackson.

  2. This rate ultimately is a celebration of the Control album turning 30, it was such a groundbreaking album in so many ways so what better way then to start a rate?!

    I will be splitting this mammoth thing into two parts, this first part is a celebration of Janet's work from Control through to All For You...​

  18. I think I already know what I'm going to 11 (though if I discover something that beats it, I will live), and what I'm probably going to get in trouble for. Excited for this!

  20. Great work so far already @P'NutButter! I am ready for this, and think I have my 11 down. Can't vote on my favourite album yet, it constantly changes, so I'm going to do it scientifically, i.e. by best average.

    ...I also need to add just how pretty those album covers look together... poor second part of this rate!
