Album Review

An abbreviated version of the 34-track anthology Number Ones, this contains 12 tracks, only ten of which were actually number one U.S. hits. For whatever reason, there's "Make Me," an exclusive track thrown onto Number Ones to bait collectors, as well as "Nothing," Janet Jackson's contribution to the soundtrack for Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? Neither one of those songs charted at all. Otherwise, this offers less than a third of Jackson's number ones, including "What Have You Done for Me Lately," "Miss You Much," "Escapade," "That's the Way Love Goes," and "All for You." [In some territories, this was released as Icon: Number Ones.]

Customer Reviews

Part of the Icon series

I love how people are blindly assuming Janet decided to do this album all on her own. It's part of the new ICON series by Universal along with about 50 other UMG artists. And EVERY icon album is restricted to having 12 songs-again, something Janet has nothing to do with. If you don't need the album, don't buy it.

Short but Sweet...

Although she just released a Great Hits album last year, and this is obviously a way for the record company to make money, this a nicely packaged greatest hits collection. It's great to see "Make Me" and "Nothing" on here as I think both songs are fantastic! One gives a fun danceable Janet track that we love, while the other is reminiscent of "Again" which shows off her softer side.


These hits are from one of the greatest artists of all time. A true Diva. Can't wait for more hits!

Few celebrity siblings can emerge from the shadows of their already famous relations to become superstars in their own right and with their own distinct personalities. That's exactly what Janet Jackson did in becoming one of the biggest female pop and R&B stars of the '80s and '90s. Since her breakthrough in 1986 with the album Control, Jackson's career as a hitmaker has been a model of consistency, rivaling Madonna and Whitney Houston in terms of pop chart success over the long haul.
