Janet Jackson will be crowned a BMI Icon on Aug. 30th at the 2018 BMi Hip-Hop/R&B Awards. This is a historical feat for the songstress. Others who have be named BMI Icon are Patti LaBelle, Nile Rodgers, James Brown, Snoop Dogg and Al Green, among others. Ms. Janet has sold 160 Million records worldwide and has 7 chart topping albums. Just saying that to myself gives me the chills.
