Janet Jackson Scores Seventh No. 1 Album With ‘Unbreakable’
Janet Jackson is on fire. After a seven-year absence from the music industry, the pop icon proves she can still top the charts with her latest effort, Unbreakable, which debuted at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.
According to Billboard, Unbreakable sold over 100,000 albums including streams in its first week of release. And the "Pleasure Principle" singer went to Twitter to thank her supporting fans (whom she also dedicated the title song "Unbreakable" to.)
"Never for a single moment did I ever go without your love. You made me feel wanted. I wanna tell you how important you are to me. Truth is I wouldn't be here without the love I stand on... Thank you," she tweeted.
The "Together Again" singer is the third act to reach the top spot in each decade from the 1980s until today after Barbara Streisand and Bruce Springsteen. She's also third on the list for woman with the most No. 1 albums. Streisand leads the list with 10 No. 1 LPs while Madonna follows with eight No. 1s of her own.
Jackson isn't too far behind with a total of seven albums to reach the No. 1 spot including Control (1986), Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989), janet. (1993), The Velvet Rope (1997), All For You (2001) and Discipline (2008).
Her latest album is certainly worthy of the honor. Even comedian Kevin Hart couldn't help but show off some hilarious moves to the Missy Elliott-assisted single, "BURNITUP!"
"Too funny Kevin! Dance like no ones watchin indeed!" tweeted the 49-year-old entertainer before asking her fans to join in with their own versions.
