We wish Janet Jackson a very Happy Birthday

The American singer, song writer and actress Janet Jackson is born on 16 May, 1966. As she is the pop icon Michael Jackson’s little sister, she had it in her genes to be a star. When she first entered the music industry, she was a young teenager who sang songs dedicated to young love. After ten years, her records became more provocative and sexual. She became the sex symbol every man dreamt of.  Her brothers Michael and Jermaine were her primary influences who helped her to become a better vocalist.

Having sold over 140 million records, she is ranked as one of the best-selling artists in the history of contemporary music. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) lists her as the eleventh best-selling female artist in the United States, with 26 million certified albums. In 2012, Billboard declared Jackson the seventh most successful female artist of the past twenty years, the ninth most successful overall, and was previously ranked second during the mid-decade. In 2010, the publication declared her as the fifth most successful R&B artist of the past twenty-five years. She is currently the third most successful artist on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart. Jackson has a total of five albums among the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's "Definitive 200 Albums", Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and The Telegraph's "120 Essential Pop Albums", considered among the most influential in popular music.

Her Top 5 songs are:


1. Nasty

2. Rhythm Nation

3. That's the Way Love Goes

4. Together Again

5. All for You


We wish her a very Happy Birthday!
