Damita Jo (2004) – 83,000 equivalent albums

All Nite (Don’t Stop) – 250,000
I Want You – 100,000
Remaining tracks – 200,000

Interestingly, each 1993-2001 album has at least one song at 600,000 download sales or more unlike her previous four LPs. Even more surprisingly, the song which appears to be the best selling tune preceding the digital era is All For You. The song was still recent when downloads first arrived and it is also one of the few hits that had a global impact.

Damita Jo, the only album from this list released during the digital years – even if they were just getting started – has the worst results which is good evidence of its lackluster performance.

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?…
