‘Unbreakable’: Janet Jackson Rockets To #1 On iTunes

Published: Friday 2nd Oct 2015 by Sam

If the iTunes chart is any indication, Janet Jackson is back. Officially.

The iconic diva uncaged her hotly anticipated ‘Unbreakable’ album today and it’s currently besting the competition. The ‘No Sleeep’ led set is the star’s first LP in seven years.

Details below…

As at writing, the project – which is executive produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis – sits atop of the tally of the US digital retailer:

janet-1-itunes

It comes as quite the coup for the returning songbird, who is releasing the project on her newly launched Rhythm Nation record label (in partnership with BMG).

Showered with copious amounts of praise from critics, many are hailing the LP the diva’s definitive “comeback” – a stance its current standing certainly lends credence to.

With an innovative “pre-order-album-for-tour-exclusives” program also in the mix, it should be interesting to see how this compelling narrative shapes up come next week’s final count.

Exciting times!

      • Lala October 5, 2015

        Listen, we all make mistakes! Nobodys perfect! That happened 10yrs ago! So what she went from Jehovah witness to Muslim!

        As long as shes happy, let her live her life in peace with her husband Wissam. #NamasteJanet

    • Tea4Daze October 2, 2015

    • #TeamTinashe Stan October 2, 2015

      And btw TGJ (Sam, Dave, Rashad) I love the site right now. It looks great with all these Janet adz. Next week it would be awesome if you add Tinashe’s “Player” along with these Janet adz.
      HASHTAG: #MOTHAandDAUGHTA 😉

  3. Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 2, 2015

    Yassss all the REAL LEGENDS releasing music this reminds me…..

    Lil Kim’s new single will be out October 24th under La Face records and her highly anticipated 5th studio album will be released the very beginning of 2016. The new single is penned by Ester Dean and is said by insiders to be the hit that will bring her career to higher levels than before. Are you ready?!

    • maurice October 2, 2015

      receipts?

    • Arianator Barb October 2, 2015

      Would you stfu and stop with the delusions

    • Dingaz October 2, 2015

      La Face Records dont even exist anymore !! lies!!!

      • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 2, 2015

        This is what her baby father said in his recent tmz interview. A credible source. I see and understand why she would want to keep it a secret because all of her past projects have fell. I know La Face doesn’t exist. She will be one of the many artists who sign to the re-launch of La Face owned by 50 Cent.

  4. Quinton251 AKA Lil Wayne Stan October 2, 2015

    When will Madonna? Congrats Janet????

    • Sean October 2, 2015

      Last Decenber. Her tour is always slaying Janet’s too and the critics say she is at a level all her own

      • Marcus October 2, 2015

        Lies! Is that when RH came out? I only liked two songs dear. RH is almost as bad as American life. Wait it is! Nothing Fails and Nobody Knows Me shits on RH. Unbreakable album and tour both s*** on RH.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

      I love that! If it was a Mariah post, you could’ve added “to infinity” after #1. I just love our legends.

  5. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

    Yes! I’m here for Sam standing down! Go ahead and let them know!

  6. pat October 2, 2015

    I wonder will Vince buy Tamar the number 2 spot.

    • joints October 2, 2015

      I wonder IF JANET JACKSON’S billionaire husband bougfht her way to the number 1 post on itunes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i wonder

      • Chilebye October 3, 2015

        Guess you haven’t seen all the people posting pics with their cd and the empty shelves at target…bye

      • Shitting on dummies October 3, 2015

        Have a seat, IDIOT, I mean, hater. This album has received massive rave reviews and she has a rather large fan base. I just got back from two targets because the racks were empty at the first target. I got lucky to get one from the back. The clerk called her manager and said, “we are out again.” Bahhhh. Let her have her number 1, she doesn’t need it and already is a billionaire. This project is all for love of music, her fans, and even the haters who have negative things to say. She has a message for you, alright.

  7. .::Centurion::. October 2, 2015

    How much has Beyonce’s September Vogue issue sold? Get to work TGJ and make us LAUGH if you can. 🙂

    • Legend B October 2, 2015

      How many albums has Hoeianna sold in the US, with her 13 #1s??? Anybody else with 13 #1s would be around 20 million albums sold. Post Hoeianna #s. Ready to LMFAO ????????????????????????????????????????????

  8. Maudey October 2, 2015

  9. Keri Qween October 2, 2015

  10. Queen Molly October 2, 2015

    • Arianator Barb October 2, 2015

      Future’s baby daddy didn’t have major competition and wasn’t even close to number one so don’t even talk. How much has crackie sold?

  11. Taylor Lover October 2, 2015

    Bye…… Let’s see her try to do the same on Billboard 200
    .
    let me go buy What a time to be alive 3 more times…….

  12. Sundayluv October 2, 2015

    I am not surprised, it’s a really great album plus janet has a lot of fans even if they don’t a lot of time on social media. We exist!

    • Sandra October 2, 2015

      Janet has less than 500,000 fans left worldwide.

      • eric October 2, 2015

        U r insane.

      • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

        And you know this how, exactly? Because you are aware that your opinion doesn’t count as fact, right?

      • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

        Lol 500,000 fans in the world. Yeah, right! And I’m Beyonce

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

    Yes, it is the Queen’S release day indeed, but there’s another lady that deserves recognition too. Sam, David, Rashad, and Pina, can we PLEASE also get at least one post on Tamar? It would truly make the Tamartians happy. I’m so excited for both ladies and I want them to be on the forefront of the news today.

    • JanStan October 2, 2015

      Hey Chile!!! Omg isn’t the album awesome. My fave changes with each listen. Lovin. It.

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

        Hey, JanStan! Have you seen how the girls were pressed today that the queen is slaying hard? I don’t know why they thought she wouldn’t do well? Oh well! Poor them! But yes! She simply DELIVERED ON A SILVER PLATTER and there’s not a damn thing I’m gonna do about it but support and encourage others to purchase the album. Right now, I’m just trying to memorize all of the lyrics by heart so that I can sing and scream out when my tour dates come up. She served with this one! It’s amazing what time can do for artistry!

      • Chill Will October 3, 2015

        Yasss! She went in! This album is giving me LIFE!

  14. Shady81 October 2, 2015

    Congratulations to Janet for taking the number 1 spot and Congrats to Tamar for holding down the number 3 spot.

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

      I wholeheartedly agree, but I really need Tamar to snatch the no. 2 spot at least. I need both ladies BLOCKING and holding down those two spots for the entire week. They deserve it and it’s their time.

      • Shady81 October 2, 2015

        Yelp I agree with you @Chile.

  16. DIABETES UNBOTHERED October 2, 2015

    Blah! This is not news ofcourse its gonna go #1 on the first hours of release. Doesn’t mean it will on the 200. Poor so called legend won’t even pull rihanna #s. 98k 1st week at best. No sleep was ironic in title since it puts me to sleep… lol I still haven’t heard it in full or BOTHERED to watch the video. & lol @ BET shading tranet by airing beys special the week after janets Android the week of her alleged comeback album.

    • why u mad October 2, 2015

      Why you so mad!? Worry about your diabetes and let’s not be negative cuz Tranet is not thinking about you!

    • BIG MAD October 4, 2015

      Put the whopper down and get the mayo off the corner of your lip before you try to discard Janet when she clearly doesn’t have to make any music at all considering her billionaire status. Who cares if these KIDS buy Janet’s album but she’s selling out a World Tour but all you’re doing is depriving your local gas station of its’ stock in Hostess products you blocked-artery ass b****.

    • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

      And yet…you took the time POST A COMMENT ABOUT HER. NEXT

    • Queen Molly October 2, 2015

      The shade is rihannas punk ass will be doing the same numbers when her album gets released.

      • LB October 2, 2015

        Girl, Lana is flopping ????????????
        ,
        Did Rosie make it to the Hive, or did the tidal wave sweep her away? ????????????????

    • Rosie October 3, 2015

      At you running in here thinking I give a s*** when 99% of the artists I listen to haven’t even sold 100K to date in the US with their last albums. LMAO! I keep your fäg ass bothered. More concerned about Lana’s drop than your slave ass fave basically retiring to become a sock designer.
      Didn’t it have to lie about having 7 million more viewers for Rock In Rio than it actually had to make it seem like anyone except the Navy still cares about L8? Really surprising since they told me she was “da biggest supastar of all time since mad0nna!!1”

  18. Hannah October 2, 2015

    I think well travelled can be a huge hit (it is my fave), same with burn it up- will be interesting to see how well it all sells- it should be a definite number 1 hit on the album charts anyways.

  19. JanStan October 2, 2015

    At the end of the day Janet is Janet whether #1 or #1000. Your faves preordered it already so get off her nuts.

      • Queen Molly October 2, 2015

        We already know this sis Janet can’t compete with King Bey.

      • JanStan October 2, 2015

        Hey there. Just wanted to remind u that Bey said she learned everything from Janet. Seethe on that b****!

    • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

      If she wasn’t significant…BET wouldn’t have bothered to focus on Janet at all…they would’ve gone straight to Beyonce. Common sense and people with it…are often ABSENT IN THESE POSTED COMMENTS.

  21. Sandra October 2, 2015

    This album will flop! MJ’s little sister was popular in the “90s, but we’re in 2015 now people.

  22. Skyfall October 2, 2015

    I prefer Calling All Lovers

    • Sandra October 2, 2015

      Yes I love Calling All Lovers. Now that’s a quality album. Well done Tamar!

      • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

        I agree, excellent album, Tamar. Well done. But its clear…you just don’t like Janet.

  23. Skyfall October 2, 2015

    Calling all lovers is out of stock in best buy online.

    • Queen Molly October 2, 2015

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

      I’m so proud of Tamar. She might have all of those crazy antics/gimmicks on TV, but her talent is definitely undeniable and her daycare KNOWS how to show up and show out for their queen. Now, let’s get her to sell out Walmart online and in the stores for at least one state.

      • Alex October 3, 2015

        I’m Beyhive all the way. However, Tamar has created a masterpiece!!! I love EVERY song on that album and she deserves to be #1!!! #Madrespect

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 2, 2015

      They better support Mo when she releases her new album too. That’ll be my third purchase.

  26. Arianator Barb October 2, 2015

    How much you wanna bet Madonna’s gonna be doing something “controversial” sometime this week to try to get attention? She had the summer on lock starring in Jurassic World but now it’s Janet’s time.

    • #TeamTinashe Stan October 2, 2015

      Nice try honey Madonna is a T-Rex(predator) and Tranet is a t***** or in this case a Triceratops(prey)…….. Figure it out h** like you on the movie Jigsaw part 4…….

    • Lorena October 4, 2015

      Well she doesnt need! She makes headlines by jus existing! Thats because she is a worldwide icon! I guess u dont know what that means: its like being famous selling albuns and tours on all continents. Try to google biggest selling female artist ever! And learn!

    • dyno October 2, 2015

      Thats harsh and not true

      • dyno October 2, 2015

        What remains true is janets paved the way for artist

    • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

      Why do people compare two extraordinary talented ladies and pit them against each other. I love Beyonce, but on real.. Beyonce been doing this since 2003 solo? Its 2015. Lets compare them again when Beyonce has lasted for 4 decades. In true…Janet has been successful and in the game since Control. Admittedly , she’s not selling what she once did, but she’s 50 yrs! When I think of You hit #1 when she was 18! How long does she have to be in the game b4 she proves she’s the real deal?! All due respect to my girl Beyonce is most undeniably the Queen of this Era! But what does Janet care? She’s been there and done that. Nobody stays Queen forever.

  32. CI BEY October 2, 2015

    She’s too old tiered.btw bes runnin thes ho3s

  38. MsYonce October 2, 2015

    Sammm do a post about rihanna posting inaccurate receipts …..

  39. MsYonce October 2, 2015

    “Rihanna claimed her Rock In Rio appearance had 7.5 million viewers and bragged about it being more than the VMAs.

    Looking into the detailed report of the event ratings, we can see the number is completely false.

    “”With 2.1 points higher than the second place Adam Lambert and Queen, Rihanna had the show with the highest audience of RIR. In third place was Katy Perry, also a pop artist, with 4.7 rating points.”, the report says.

    1 rating point is equivalent to 67.000 people watching.

    This means Rihanna only had 502,000 people watching.””

  48. Regina George October 3, 2015

    Not surprised… Slay down QUEEN MOTHA… Thought this was a game?!

  49. MRLondon October 3, 2015

    I love Janet’s new album!!…but enough with the childish Madonna bashing..Rebel Heart is close to selling 1million copies worldwide even after being leaked in full 2 months before release. She received mostly positive reviews and her tour is kicking ass!! There is no need to bring a Legend down to praise another one( Janet). They are both amazing artists and completely different in style and sound.

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 3, 2015

      Both are Queens of Pop in very different ways to be honest.

      • Slim Cortez October 11, 2015

        Thank you!

  50. Elyte Brother October 3, 2015

    Janet is slaying the damn world. #1 album on iTunes in the U.S. and the #2 album on the WORLDWIDE ITUNES Chart. With no promotion or Interviews. Snatching all the haters wigs, leaving third degree burns. #1 National Tour. Selling out tour dates and hasn’t done an interview yet. Slaayyyyy Queen Janet slaayyyy

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 3, 2015

      Predictions is that she’ll do 90k t0 105K and be #1 on the BB chart. Tamar is up to do 45k.

  51. iloveJanet October 3, 2015

    This album is pure perfection. i love it.

  52. isi October 4, 2015

    Janet Jackson (BMG) 90-105k albums, 93-108k SPS
    Tamar Braxton (Epic) 38-43k, 42-47K SPS

    Rebel heart did 116K in pure sales!! We already knew Tamar was going to flop but the “Queen” can only muster 108K at the most with 8 years away and the masses supposedly adoring her. Queen of Pop my ass, Madonna is still queen!
