Janet Jackson has officially bossed up after announcing that she’ll be releasing her next album on her own label, Rhythm Nation Records, through a partnership and distribution with BMG this fall. The “Nasty” girl has a history of success at different record companies and has sold more than 160 million albums through her previous deals with A&M and Virgin. 

With her momentum in full throttle as she plans her Unbreakable world tour in August, Janet hit up Twitter yesterday to thank her fans for their continued support by singing to them a small snippet of her appreciation and stating, "I wanna tell you how important you are to me! Love J."

With devoted fans that have held down her singing career for over 30 years, it’s no surprise why she’s had so much success despite her label hopping. But she’s not the only artist who’s racked up sales recording for different companies. Peep some more members of the small illustrious club now. — Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
