Rhythm Nation – Janet Jackson

Hey, its “Flashback Friday,” it is minus 6C outside and we are moving into snow season. The white stuff should be coming down by tomorrow. This week I want to highlight the peeps that partied in the late 1980s and early 90s, to some of the best R&B, Soul, Funk and Hip Hop, music recorded.
This week we are starting off with Janet Jackson. So many of us watched this woman literally grow up on television. She started out, from what I recall, on the television show “The Jacksons.” Then went on to star in three sitcoms, “Good Times,” “Fame,” and Diff’rent Strokes.”
Her acting career started at the age of seven and peaked at the age of 29 with her movie debut with the late Tupac Shakur in “Poetic Justice.”
She has starred in other movies since then like “Why Did I Get Married,” and “For Coloured Girls.”
In between her acting career, she has carved a musical career that has the music industry recognizing her as one of the top Pop culture icons of all times.
The album this first song comes from “Rhythm Nation 1814,” was released in 1989, after her first major album hit “Control,” and in 1991, was recognized as the only artist to release not five but seven top five hits from a single album.
Let us rock to Janet Jackson and “Rhythm Nation.”
