Dream Street

23/10/1984 (EUA) |/A&M RECORDS

The pressure over Janet coming from her family was growing. Her first album did not reach the expected level of success and comparisons were inevitable. For her, despite acting on TV being a greater challenge, it was also more comfortable, since there she could be Janet and not only the youngest sister of the Jacksons. The expectation was a huge weight on her shoulders. The family only cared about the #1 spot in the charts, something Janet was still far from achieving.

If the first album had a Disco feel to it, the next album, Dream Street, would go on to have the Bubblegum Pop sound. On the first time, Janet had avoided the direct participation of the family (precisely to keep the nasty comments away), but, this time, she conceded. Her brothers asked to be involved in the project. Marlon helped with the production and others, including Michael, helped with vocals. English superstar Cliff Richard and Italian producer Giorgio Moroder – the latter famous for having “innovated” dance music and having produced big hits for Donna Summer –, were also entrusted to help boost sales.

Dream Street had a less impressive performance than the debut album, Janet Jackson. Sales were lower and the singles had less impact. Whatever the mistake was, strategy-wise, the fact remained that Janet was still well behind her family. When asked whether she would, someday, surpass her brothers, she hesitated. She said he would act in movies – something they had not done. Little did she know that the year of 1986 would mark her name as a family powerhouse within the music market.

She began to realize that her musical success would come if she took control. She couldn’t let her father make all the decisions. This is why the Dream Street era represents the beginning of her emancipation. She married James DeBarge at 18 years old and moved out of the Jackson’s home.


In spite of this, Janet was still afraid to totally defy Joe and, against her will, accepted the role on the musical TV series Fame, where she promoted some of her songs, such as ‘Dream Street’ and ‘Two To The Power Of Love ‘.

JANET.br | Janet Jackson Brasil

JANET.br started in 2014 with two fans from São Paulo, Brazil, who had been keeping track of Janet Jackson's work since mid-00's.

We started on Facebook, grew out to other social networks, and then built a website with news and photo gallery. Since then, Brazil, who had never been an expressive fanbase, became one of the biggest hubs of discussion about Janet, and we became one of the biggest international communities about the star.

We're still here, bringing information to the JanFam and, maybe one day, we'll get Janet to come to Brazil.
