There’s not much to say about Janet Jackson’s post-2004 albums as the physical singles market was truly weak by then, a situation getting even worse with largely unsuccessful songs. The interesting category is the Orphan one which contains several hits from different years.

Herb Alpert duet Diamonds was a US hit in 1987, just like The Best Things in Life Are Free with Luther Vandross in 1992. A series of Orphan Top 10 singles continued in 1995 with the duet alongside her brother Michael, Scream, then Busta Rhymes’ #3 smash What’s It Gonna Be?! in 1999.

All those successes brought the artist a total over 40 million physical singles sold, a fairly huge tally in an era which favored albums.

With all nepotism and help she had, her numbers are nowhere in big 4 league. Even Enya, tina turner outsold her. And new mpgs are already ahead. The way her fans claim her in league of whitney is beyond me

why so speed negativity to every comment sections it’s so annoying. You don’t like Janet okay cool

I am talking numbers. If u cant digest the fact that her numbers are low, considering how people try to put her in league of big 5, they can be called out. Stating facts = negativity for fans and its fact she had career, bcoz of her brother. There is reason nepotism is called out everywhere.

Morning,
I’m still wondering why her album “Discipline” doesn’t appear on any Spotifyl streaming tally? Is it a glitch or something?

I don’t know if these are worldwide sales but it’s wrong

Control = 14 Million
Rhythm Nation = 14 Million
janet. = 20 Million
The Velvet Rope = 10 Million
All For You = 7 Million
Damita Jo = 3 Million
20 Y.O. = 1.5 Million
Discipline = 1 Million
Unbreakable = 400K
Black Diamond = TBD

Don’t know how much Janet Jackson & Dream Street sold and Design Of A Decade sold 10 million.

HI,
Is it normal that the album “Discipline” is not on her Spotify number tool? As well, do we know what’s the “official” reason for most of her music videos not being available on Youtube when everyone’s else are?…
