The Janet Jackson Sales Thread

Those three along with TVR are Janet's career defining albums. AFY was just the nail on the coffin that solidified her status. TOF has no clue what he's talking about. In order for an album to be great, it needs to have great singles and great album tracks. TAT is one of the strongest album tracks on AFY, and it needed to stay that way or AFY would've been an album of singles. SMH @ TOF thinking that's okay. If that were the case AFY would've been no better than Good Girl Gone Bad. :sigh: YAR, TAT, Truth, FSR, WYM, and maybe CL are the best album tracks on AFY. Take away the singles, and you still have a decent album.

DJ, even if Superbowl didn't happen, was only gonna sell like 5 million max. There was no massive hit on the album. The fact that it did 3 million with no hits or a tour is nothing short of a miracle.

RN1814 is an album full of singles (literally) and it's still a classic... :unsure:

Total = 1,400,000

Total UK sales (based on [dated] certifications) = 3,160,000

UK Mix puts Janet at 4,359,645 singles in the UK as of 2005.

Going off that figure:

= 6,119,645

From 04Wayne on UK Mix

UK:

Some 1996-onwards single sales:

Got 'Til It's Gone - Janet featuring Q-Tip and Joni Mitchell - 190,000

Together Again - 360k (1997) + 381k (1998) = 741,000

I Get Lonely - Janet Jackson - 122,000

What's It Gonna Be? – Busta Rhymes featuring Janet - 141,800

Girlfriend/Boyfriend – BLACKstreet featuring Janet - 84,900

Doesn't Really Matter - Janet Jackson - 126,000

All for You - Janet Jackson - 160,470

Feel It Boy - Beenie Man featuring Janet Jackson - 48,000

= 1,614,170.

That's since 1996 only, she probably sold more than that before 1996.

Other figures I have for her:

Best Things In Life Are Free: 295,000

Thats The Way Love Goes: 187,000

Any Time Any Place: 51,000

Scream: 245,000

= 678,000.

When you factor in her other single sales, I think you'd manage to push her towards and probably even over 4,000,000 single sales in the UK
