Janet Jackson Album Jumps Into iTunes Top 5 Ahead Of Tour Launch This Week

Published: Monday 4th Sep 2017 by Sam

As Janet Jackson readies the Thursday launch of her ‘State Of The World Tour,’ the public are showing an appetite for her classic catalogue.

Details below…

Ms. Jackson’s greatest hits collection, ‘Number Ones,’ is currently sitting at #3 on the US iTunes chart.

So, what caused the sudden surge?

Well, it’s likely the pairing of its recent price slash (to $6.99) and buzz surrounding the 56-date North American trek, which kicks off in Lafayette September 7th.

It’s worth noting that Janet’s album wasn’t the only discounted, yet it is the highest charting.


Awesome stuff.

Janet boasts a talent and hit list that are ever-enduring.

That said, we are amped to hear some of the new music reportedly in the works.

Your thoughts?

      • Troy September 5, 2017

        Whisper your ass out and go get her Unbreakable cd, she’s not whispering there, you smart ass troll. Her whispers got her millions of dollars in record sales though….what are you sitting on.

    I can’t wait to see how different the tour is. I hope she has more costume changes, better choreo, and better production.

    • ka September 4, 2017

      According to Gil there is outfit changes, so far liking change just need boss choreography and visuals!

      • Bam September 4, 2017

        I really liked the choreography and change ups/remixes they did on the first leg of the tour. The remixes made many of the older songs sound more current and the choreography was just perfect as it was high octane yet still manageable for a pro entertainer Janet’s age.

    “Alright miss Jackson if you nasty

  5. The Wig Snatcher September 4, 2017

      • Electrikblue September 5, 2017

        I bet she won’t Troy. You’re such a vile negative person. Janet and Queen Bey are living their dreams. How about you?

  6. Suicide Blonde September 4, 2017

    So this is a new tour or a continuation of the last one?

    • Boytoy1814 September 5, 2017

      New tour

  7. Jeans September 4, 2017

    She will slay!

  8. AmericanDream September 4, 2017

    She is so nasty. Cancelled her European tour last year, and now she is touring the US again, instead of treating her EU fans… disappointment

    • Mark Davidson September 4, 2017

      When she see how good her shows are she will tour the world

    • Jasmine September 4, 2017

      She is still touring the UK. What are you talking about?

      • Leon September 5, 2017

        What dates? Thought so.

      • Jasmine September 5, 2017

        She is booked through the end of December in the states and then the tour continues overseas in February. Why do you think it is being billed as a “World Tour”? Call live nation or ticketmaster in december for the confirmed dates. I think you want to be shady but everyone knows all dates for a world tour are not going to be available at the same time. It is country by country the same way other artists do it.

    • Troy September 5, 2017

      Chill…..she was pregnant…she`ll get there.

  9. Mark Davidson September 4, 2017

    Only the Empress Of Pop can do this ?

  13. none none September 4, 2017

    There are tons of seats still available for her Lafayette, La concert on Thursday, and the prices are dirt cheap, too.

    • Caleb September 4, 2017

      “Tons” Is an exaggeration, but I got great seats for $54
