On this day in 1993, Janet Jackson released her self-titled album, Janet. It was the album that sent Janet’s success into the stratosphere. Her two recent projects, Control and Rhythm Nation 1814 did what they were supposed to do; jump start her career the way she wanted and let the world know she was not a little girl anymore. But Janet. did that and then some. Janet. introduced the sex symbol to the world. It was the first chance to see Janet reinvent herself and step out of what the world believed to be her norm.
