"Janet" (stylized as "janet.") is the fifth studio album by American Dance-Pop artist, Janet Jackson. The album was released on May 18, 1993 by Virgin Records. Prior to its release, Jackson was at the center of a high-profile bidding war over her recording contract. Her original label A&M sought to renew her contract, while others, such as Atlantic, Capitol, and Virgin all vied to sign her. After meeting with Virgin owner Richard Branson, she signed with the label for an unprecedented multi-million dollar contract, making her the world's then-highest paid musical act. The album "janet." debuted on the Billboard 200 albums chart at # 1 with the largest first-week sales in history for a female artist at the time. It also peaked at #1 on both the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums, Canadian Albums Chart and the UK Albums Chart. The album includes the hit singles "That's The Way Love Goes", "If", "Again", "Anytime, Anyplace", "Throb", "You Want This", "Whoops Now" and "What'll I Do."
