On this DAY in 1989, Janet Jackson released her hit single ‘Miss You Much’!!!

“Miss You Much” is a song co-written and recorded by American singer Janet Jackson, released as the lead single from her fourth studio album Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989). The single spent four weeks at number-one on the US Billboard Hot 100, making it the longest running number-one single of 1989. “Miss You Much” was the second-best selling single of 1989 and the biggest radio airplay song of the year. Billboard later listed “Miss You Much” as Janet Jackson’s all-time biggest Hot 100 single.[2] It is Jackson’s third longest running number-one single, behind “That’s the Way Love Goes” (1993) and “All for You” (2001), which spent eight and seven weeks, respectively, at number-one.

Its music video is considered iconic for its choreography and chair routine, and has been referenced by various artists. “Miss You Much” has inspired videos from Britney Spears, and was covered in the Korean film 200 Pounds Beauty, also being sampled by artists such as 50 Cent.

“Miss You Much” received two Grammy Award nominations, and was awarded the Billboard Award for the Top Hot 100 Single of the Year and two American Music Awards.
