25th Anniversary of Janet Jackson’s ‘If’

On this day in 1993, Janet Jackson released ‘If’.

The bold track was controversial to mainstream audiences at the time, as Janet had not previously embraced her sexuality so publicly in this way.

‘If’ won numerous awards including a Billboard Award, BMI Pop Award, MTV VMA, and Soul Train Music Award.
