Her music has won her 5 GRAMMY® Awards, 2 Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and a nomination for an Academy Award, along with dozens of American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, and Billboard Music Awards. She has also received accolades as an actor, including the NAACP Best Supporting Actor award. Janet is a published author, dancer, businessperson, philanthropist, and one of the biggest-selling artists in the history of popular music. With sales of over 180 million records worldwide, Janet Jackson stands as one of the best-selling artists of all time with a string of hits that have left an indelible impression on pop culture. She is the record holder for the biggest-selling debut tour in history and is the first woman to debut in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 charts. She also stands as one of only four artists to have a #1 album for four successive decades, alongside Barbra Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, and U2. Even today, she continues to make an undeniable impact. In 2018, her single, “Made for Now” with Daddy Yankee, released by her own Rhythm Nation Records, hit #1 on the Dance Clubs Songs chart, making it her 20th single on the chart in the span of her career. In 2019, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside her brothers. That same year, her critically acclaimed Las Vegas residency, “Metamorphosis,” closed out to record-breaking ticket sales with only 18 dates at the Park MGM’s Park Theater. As reported by Billboard Boxscore, the legendary singer, dancer, songwriter, producer, and actor is among the most prominent Vegas performers of this decade, ahead of Celine Dion (2011), Britney Spears (2013), and the Backstreet Boys (2017).
On February 4, 2021, Janet Jackson’s iconic mega platinum-selling third album, Control, turned 35. The album also returned to the top of the charts, hitting #1 on the Apple Top 40 US Pop Album chart. Led by five chart-busting hit singles — “What Have You Done for Me Lately,” “Nasty,” “Control,” “When I Think Of You,” —with their complementary, tightly choreographed music videos — and “Let’s Wait Awhile,” Control became Jackson’s first No. 1 Pop album. The album also made Billboard chart history for having the longest continuous run on the Hot 100 with singles from one album, ultimately tallying a remarkable 65 consecutive weeks from that perch. To date, Control has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
