30 Years Ago: Our Favorite Hits From Janet Jackson's Control Album

Can you believe it has been 30 years since Janet Jackson released "Control," her third-studio album that set her apart from other artists during her time?!

After two low-profile albums, Janet teamed up with songwriters and record producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis to create an unconventional sound that boosted Jackson's career and influenced so many recording artists after. This album certainly brought out the moves, feminine independence and big hair in every girl of the 80's. There were so many iconic elements that played an amazing role during that era. Today as we celebrate the groundbreaking album, we decided to highlight some of our favorite tracks and videos from Control. We can't forget the moves from Pleasure Principle or her beautiful falsetto from Let's Wait Awhile.
