Janet Jackson is an American singer, known not only for her undeniable artistic talents but also for the fact that she is the ninth and last child of the famous Jackson tribe.
His childhood dream was to become a jockey.
But her father, with a reputedly violent character, quickly redirected her on the same path as her brothers.
This is how she found herself on stage from the age of 7 alongside them.
She will spend a large part of her childhood and adolescence appearing either in comedies or in television series.
But once again, her father will systematically redirect her towards a musical career.
She got married at the age of 18. Marriage that will last only 6 months !
His first two musical experiences, "Janet Jackson" and "Dream street" were not very successful.
It wasn't until 1986 and the release of the album "Control" to see it take off in record sales with the singles "What have you done for me lately" and the iconic "Nasty".
She immediately stood out from other popular singers with her choreography and attention to detail.
But it was especially the year 1989 and the release of the album "Janet Jackson's rhythm nation 1814" which propelled her to the rank of star with no less than seven titles which reached the top 5 of the famous Billboard Hot 100 !
In 1990, she even became the biggest record seller of the year and the awards rained down.
In 1991, change of record label. She goes to Virgin.
In 1993, the album "Janet" was released, which in turn exploded sales and from which the flagship single "That’s the way love goes" would be taken.
It took four years to see the release of the next album "The Velvet rope". New success despite a controversy in the United States linked to her “bad girl” look.
Album from which the giant “Together again” will come.
Marking the culmination of a career that will decline somewhat thereafter. But the singer will have made a good place for herself in the sun and will remain in history as an extraordinary artist.
And this despite the omnipresent shadow of a brother with even more exceptional gifts ...
