Janet Jackson leaves Island Records

Posted on

Janet Jackson has announced her departure from Island Records, the label she’s recorded on since 2007. Jackson’s most recent CD, Discipline, was released on Island last February and debuted at No. 1. “Now, more than 20 years after the release of her iconic album, Control, Janet will have autonomy over her career, without the restrictions of a label system,” Jackson’s publicist said via a statement. The singer is presently performing on the “Rock Witchu Tour,” which kicked off on Sept. 10 in Vancouver and makes stops across the U.S. and Canada.
