1984 Janet Jackson – Dream Street

Dream Street is the second studio album by American musician Janet Jackson, released on October 23, 1984, by A&M Records. More pop than her debut album’s “bubblegum soul” feel, the album wasn’t the runaway success that Janet’s father Joseph thought it would be, peaking at number one hundred forty-seven on the Billboard 200 in 1984. The album did have one modest hit for Jackson, the top ten R&B single, “Don’t Stand Another Chance”, produced by brother Marlon. Also, the video for the song “Dream Street”, her first music video, was shot during the shooting of the TV show Fame.
