This is still my favorite album of all time. 

 

It is is kind of crazy to think she made such an iconic and legendary album at an incredibly young age.

It was a lot of activity on Twitter for the 30th anniversary of RN..It was glorious for the fanbase as a whole.  There is no denying RN impact and influence..and how it still applies today.  And to think she was only like 23/24 creating it.

I don’t like how I’m older than this album!!!! 😏😝😡🤬🤪

So are we gonna list this legendary album’s Unbreakable (yup! 😝) achievements?!?? 🤔

-The only album to produce 7 top 5 hits off of one album.

-One of a handful of albums to produce 4 #1 hits.

-The only album to place multiple #1s in three consecutive calendar years: 1989-1991.

-Swopping the first annual Billboard Music Awards with 15 wins including Top Pop and R’n’B Album of 1990. Also, the first female artist to swipe a major award show in TV history!

-Janet was the first black female nominated for Producer of the Year at the 1990 Grammys.

-the Rhythm Nation Album made Janet the first and ONLY artist to top the Pop, R’n’B, Rock and Dance Charts with multiple singles from the album.

-The biggest selling album in America for 1990.

-The Rhythm Nation World Tour in 1990 still remains the biggest debut tour in history with over 2 million concert goers around the world.

-6x platinum with over 14 million sold worldwide to date.

-The Rhythm Nation military uniform is STILL regarded as one of the most iconic visuals in pop history; starting the militaristic black suit and key earring trend of the late 80s/early 90s.

-Place on MANY “Best of” lists including “Best Albums of the 80s” and Rolling Stones’ “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. 

Should I go on.....😳😱👀🤷🏾‍♂️

I’m surprised the Grammys said something considered they didn’t give the album its just due when it was time.
