Jackson Returns To Old Label For New Success

JANET JACKSON has reportedly returned to her first record label in a bid to revive her career - after previously vowing to go it alone.
The superstar split from Island Records last year (08) after executives failed to promote her 2008 album Discipline and she subsequently confirmed plans to ditch labels altogether to manage herself.
But according to the New York Daily News, Jackson has released a new greatest hits compilation, Number Ones, with powerful industry help after secretly signing a new contract last month (Oct09) with A&M Records, the firm she first signed with at the age of 16.
And A&M executive Jimmy Iovine is hoping Jackson's next album, expected to hit shelves in 2010, will be a success after recruiting top producer Rodney Jerkins to work with the pop star.
A source tells the publication, "Jimmy has given the mandate to make this Janet record a success. He believes that he has the right team in place to finally take Janet back to the top of the music charts. It's a top priority for the label."
The pop star has failed to match the success she found with her best-selling Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 with A&M in 1989. More recent projects, including 2004's Damita Jo and 2006's 20 Y.O. with Virgin Records, proved to be critical flops for Jackson.
