Let’s take it back, wayyyy back, to the year 1990.
This week in R&B history, the legendary Janet Jackson scored her sixth of 15 No.1s on the Billboard chart! Growing up in the most iconic music family, Janet’s destiny was written for her at birth. Establishing her name outside of the Jackson Five may have beenm one of the singer’s biggest battles, but with this track she proved anything was possible.
Jackson released the hit single “Escapade” that climbed quickly to top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs on Billboard on March 10, 1990. Janet was unstoppable after she first reigned with “What Have You Done for Me Lately” on the March 22, 1986, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Janet is not only a powerful woman in music history, but also an accomplished actress and a dedicated philanthropist. Watch the full video to “Escapade” by Janet Jackson above!
