Janet Jackson - Best Of Number Ones: Wikipedia Album Entry
Official release title: Janet Jackson: Number Ones: Icon (musicbrainz release title style)
Janet Jackson: Number Ones: Icon (A&M/UMe), brings together 11 of the artist's #1 hits - 10 of them gold or platinum - and the newly released “Nothing” from the 2010 motion picture, Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?, which Janet stars in. One of the biggest-selling recording artists in the world, the ASCAP and Grammy winner's previous compilation albums and CDs have been giant hits, her 1995 double platinum Design of a Decade: 1986-1996 and 2009's Number Ones.
“Nothing”, which she composed, was recently cited by the trade paper Variety as one of two motion picture songs of 2010 to date considered as strong contenders in the running for Oscar nomination. Jackson was previously nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song with “Again” (from the film Poetic Justice) and also for the Golden Globe.
Janet Jackson: Number Ones: Icon spans more than 20 years, from 1986’s gold "What Have You Done for Me Lately" spun off from her blockbuster breakthrough Control to 2009’s “Make Me”, a song which she debuted that year in tribute to her brother Michael at the MTV Video Music Awards and which quickly shot to #1 on the Dance chart.
Also heard from Control are the gold hits “Nasty” (#1 R&B/#3 Pop) and “When I Think of You” (#1 Pop/#1 Dance). 1989’s Rhythm Nation 1814 yielded the platinum Pop #1s “Miss You Much” and “Escapade”, and gold Dance #1 “Alright.” From 1993’s janet., Janet Jackson: Number Ones: Icon culls the platinum Pop #1 “That’s the Way Love Goes”. In 1997, The Velvet Rope included the platinum #1 Pop “Together Again”. The title track of 2000’s All For You and the album’s “Doesn’t Really Matter” were two more platinum #1 Pop smash hits.
Continuing her acting career, Jackson reprised her starring role in 2007’s Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? for the 2010 sequel. She also recorded “Nothing” for the soundtrack. On this year's season finale of American Idol, she performed a medley including "Nothing" - and the clip rocketed to #1 on the iTunes music video chart.
Janet Jackson: Number Ones: Icon is part of the new Icon series of albums from Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) featuring the greatest hits, signature tunes and fan favorites of the most popular artists in music history.
