Today in 1986, the Queen Janet Jackson earned her first #1 hit with the third Control single, ‘When I Think of You’ . The gushy, gooey pop song about losing control and submitting to the power of love was a quiet slay for Jackson landing her long awaited seat at number one. ‘When I Think of You’ was hybrid of R&B and pop dreamed up by producers and co-writers James “Jimmy Jam” Harris III and Terry Lewis.
Now 30 years later Janet has since notched nine additional chart-toppers on the Hot 100, the most recent being 2001’s “All For You,” which was also produced by Jam and Lewis.
Lewis was quoted saying, “Though many are great, none — not even “Escapade,” can match the sheer exuberance of “When I Think of You.”
With a baby on the way, Jackson has halted her latest tour and album promotion. We can all agree the Queen has earned her some time off.
