Note to JJ: Stop whispering, I can't hear you!

Check out the video for the second single, "Rock Wit U." Janet Jackson's Discipline debuted at number 1 on The Billboard 200 with 181,000 albums sold the first week, followed by Erykah Badu's New Amerykah.

Her last two Virgin albums, 2004's "Damita Jo" and 2006's "20 Y.O.," both debuted and peaked at No. 2, though "Damita" started with 381,000 while "20 Y.O." began with 296,000.

Did you catch that! So your number one with a fraction of your last album sales and those weren't event on top...In just a few years, the industry has declined just that fast. Can I get a ROI on the amount of promotional dollars poured into this album?
