Janet Jackson’s label, Def Jam, has reportedly bailed on the pop icon’s latest release Discipline. Execs ad the label have ceased promoting the album and there are no more single releases planned. The CD produced just one lukewarm hit with the single “Feedback.”
“We started off with Feedback and the label and myself haven’t quite seen eye to eye since the Feedback single so they’ve kind of basically stopped all promotion,” Jackson wrote in an email to a media outlet. “I’m trying to figure out a way to say this, but just to say it and to be quite honest, they just stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album, so I don’t think you’re going to hear another single off this album.”
Janet has had no luck with her recent releases: Damita Jo and 20 Y.O., both of which were considered flops. By contrast, at her peak, Jackson scored 19 hit singles from just three albums. She still holds the record for successive #1 hits in the U.S.
