Jackson has been in the entertainment industry for decades and has given us some of the best classics like “Control,” “Nasty,” “Doesn’t Really Matter” and so many more.

Jackson will join the Hall of Fame along with Radiohead, The Cure, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leppard, and the Zombies. She will also be joining her brothers, Michael and the Jackson 5, as members of the prestigious group. In a social media post, Janet wrote, “We did it u guys,” she wrote with a purple heart. “Thank U for all your love and support. #RockHall2019.”
This year Jackson performed at the 2018 Essence Festival, Billboard Music Awards, Panorama Music Festival, and the Global Citizens Festival. She also dropped a new hit song with Reggaeton artist #DaddyYankee. “I’m deeply humbled and grateful for this award.
