    Oh definitely, I personally think it should have done better in the US though, its a complete masterpiece!! I always thought Dangerous deserved to outsell Thriller.

    Anyway compared to her contemporaries at the time though Rhythm Nation sold extremely well, Madonna's Like A Prayer is 4x Platinum, Whitney's I'm Your Baby Tonight is also 4x Platinum, only Mariah Carey's self titled album which is 9x Platinum is similar in sales.

    I agree with you up to a point, don't forget the Dangerous era was literally cut short because of the first allegations. And only Black or White went to number #1 Janet had a flawless era with RN & Janet. For a while she was the "alternative to MJ" aka the "normal one"

    I agree. I think if he had toured the states the sales would have went up. Oh, I often wonder how things would have been if 1993 didnt happen.
    Also, I dont know if youre American or not but this time period in the states, New Jack Swing was kinda on its way out. He was late to the party. If he had released the album a year earlier it would have done much better hear (like Janets Rhythm Nation).

    If you compare anyone to Michael they will fall short so it's not really fair to.. lol!!

    Janet has proven a force to be reckon with on her own, she's a HUGE success in retrospect of reality..


    Michael was NOT reality, he was in a league of his own.. It's only crippling to anyone to be compared!

    This is from the Chartmaster-Analysis for Janet Jackson:

    The gap in performance in streaming of Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson is so big that a low song from the latter is one of the biggest streamers from the former. Scream is close to 10 million plays, enough for the 6th spot among Janet Jackson’s list but barely Top 50 inside a similar Michael Jackson ranking.

    People can say what they want about her being Michaels sister and how it helped her career.. truth to it? sure! but people bought her albums because they were good.. stack her sales up to any other Jackson aside from Mikes and see how far the name got them in a solo career.. Need I remind people she wasn't even part of the Jackson 5 or Jacksons group.. she was "just" the little sister. Did not have the notoriety all the other brothers had to launch a solo career.
