Control, the third studio album from Janet Jackson, is a unique fusion of rhythm and blues, funk, pop, disco and modern synthesized percussion. Originally released February 1986, it established Jackson and her co-writers/producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis as pop and R&B innovators. As a record of personal testament layered with hot grooves, Control announced Jackson as a liberated and noteworthy artist. She became a global star and a model for independent women.
Led by its five hit singles and their complementary, tightly choreographed music videos - "What Have You Done for Me Lately," "Nasty," "Control," "When I Think of You" and "Let's Wait Awhile" - Control was Jackson's first No. 1 pop album. Its run of singles in the top five made Billboard Hot 100 chart history, breaking brother Michael's record for longest continuous run on the Hot 100 with singles from one album: a record 65 consecutive weeks. It preceded the artist in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It has now sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Now available on black vinyl.
