Janet Jackson then
Janet Jackson has been a part of the entertainment industry long before the nineties, but that’s when she became famous as a solo artist. She started her career as a child in the mid-seventies, with the popular variety show The Jacksons, alongside seven of her siblings. While her brother, Micheal Jackson, was seemingly the star of the show, Janet was also discovered through the show as a talented singer.
Entering the nineties, Janet already had four studio albums to her name. In 1993, she released her fifth and arguably her most popular album, titled Janet. She made history when her record won first place on the Billboard 200 chart. In 1997, Jackson released her sixth album, The Velvet Rope, where she sang about some of her personal issues, including clinical depression.
