Solo Musicianship

Jackson released two albums under A&M Records and her father’s management, “Janet Jackson” (1982) and “Dream Street” (1983). (1984).

With the release of her fourth album, “Rhythm Nation 1814,” in 1989, Jackson cemented her place as a solo artist, independent from her famous family.

It was the first album in history to have three consecutive number one singles. The music video for the single “Rhythm Nation” is considered one of the most memorable and popular in history, helping to establish Jackson as a fashion icon; the lengthy version of the “Rhythm Nation” music video won a Grammy Award. Her Rhythm Nation World Tour of 1990 was also the most successful debut tour in history at the time, breaking the record for the fastest sell-out of Japan’s Tokyo Dome.
