Singer Janet Jackson has topped the charts once again. Her comeback album Unbreakable has made history by making it to the top of America’s Billboard 200.
The R&B icon debuted Unbreakable, the follow-up to 2008’s Discipline, in pole position, earning Jackson her seventh US number one. Only Barbra Streisand and Madonna have more chart-toppers for a female artist, with ten and eight, respectively.
Jackson knocks Fetty Wap’s eponymous debut album from the top – the rapper’s project falls to four, behind The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness at two, and Drake and Future’s What a Time to Be Alive at three.
Her brother’s sudden death led her to withdraw from the spotlight to grieve but she re-emerged in 2011 with an 80-date tour to promote a greatest hits collection. Jackson is also the third act in history to have a No. 1 album in each of the past 4 decades.
Thanking fans for their unwavering support on Twitter.com, the singer writes, “Never for a single moment did I ever go without your love. You made me feel wanted. I wanna (sic) tell you how important you are to me. Truth is that I wouldn’t be here without the love I stand on… Thank you”.
Jackson knocked Fetty Wap’s eponymous debut album from the top – the rapper’s project fell to four, behind The Weeknd’s “Beauty Behind the Madness” at two, and Drake and Future’s “What a Time to Be Alive” at three. Singer Tamar Braxton rounded out the new top five with “Calling All Lovers”.
