Janet Jackson shared a video on Twitter Saturday saying she is “thankful” for God and fans after her album “Control” charted at No. 1 35 years later after its release. “I was at home just the other day by myself and I began to cry. I was crying because I was so thankful for all that God has blessed me with, all that he has given me,” she said.
On Feb. 4, the pop artist’s “Control” album turned 35. The album was Jackson’s third studio album and included five chart-making songs like “What Have You Done for Me Lately.” After the anniversary, the album rose to the No.1 spot on Apple’s Top 40 US Pop Album chart. After its release “Control” spent 91 weeks on the Billboard top R&B and hip-hop album chart, peaking at No. 1 for the first time April 19, 1986.
I want to thank all of you for making Control number one once again after 35 years,” she said in the video. “I never, never, in a million years I would never think that this would happen. I really appreciate you and I love you so so much.”
