Visit Janet Jackson's 'Rhythm Nation 1814' | For The Record
Take a look at how the GRAMMY winner's 1989 masterpiece made music history.
Despite its 1989 release, Janet Jackson's iconic album, Rhythm Nation 1814, has political themes that are just as relevant today as when the album was still hot off the presses. In addition to its 30-minute long-form music video that featured "Miss You Much," "The Knowledge" and "Rhythm Nation," Rhythm Nation 1814 was a smash success, earning a record-breaking seven Top 5 hits.
Jackson also earned her first career GRAMMY win at the 32nd GRAMMY Awards for Best Music Video — Longform for Rhythm Nation 1814, and earned seven total GRAMMY nods for the record between the 32nd and 33rd GRAMMYs, including for Producer Of The Year (Non-Classical), making her the first woman to earn the distinction.
