Janetjacksonalbum

Janet Jackson is the self-titled debut album by Janet Jackson. The album was released on September 21, 1982 on A&M Records.

Janet's career as a singer was established by her father & manager, Joseph Jackson, who arranged her record deal with A&M Records. Prior to her record deal with A&M Records, Janet was known for her television roles on "Good Times" as Penny and "Diff'rent Strokes" as Charlene.

Janet didn't want any of her family members to participate in the making of the album because she wanted it to be her own project judged by its own merits. The album cover of Janet was taken in the swimming pool of the Jackson family residence.
