Discipline is the tenth studio album by American recording artist Janet Jackson.
It was released on February 22, by Island Records. It is her only album released with the record label after her five-album deal with Virgin Records was fulfilled with the release of 20 Y. Jackson's long-time producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis did not contribute to the project. The album was executive produced by Island Urban president Dupri and Jackson.
The album received generally positive reviews, with critics arguing that it was an improvement on Jackson's two previous albums. It debuted at number one on the US Billboard , becoming her sixth to top the chart, and her first number-one album since All for You However, sales of the album quickly fell, and by June, the album's promotion had officially ended.
Jackson started her Rock Witchu Tour —with the support of Live Nation —in early September to positive reviews, but by the end of that month, Jackson parted with her record label due to the album's commercial failure. Four singles were released from the album: the lead single " Feedback " reached number nineteen on the US Billboard Hot , becoming Jackson's best charting single since 's " Someone to Call My Lover ",  while the following singles—" Rock with U ", " Luv " and " Can't B Good "—did not match the success of "Feedback".
In July , it was announced that Jackson had signed a recording contract with Island Records , after her five-album deal with Virgin Records was fulfilled with the release of her album 20 Y. Originally, Jackson wanted to go on a tour in support of 20 Y. Jackson's long-time producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, did not contribute to the project.
She did not write or co-write any songs on the album, a departure from her usual practice of co-writing and producing all of the songs on her albums. The deluxe edition of Discipline included a DVD entitled The Making of Discipline , split into five chapters which document the production of the album, its promotion, and the "Feedback" music video. She spent two days working on photos for the cover and credit booklet, revealing that she still feels uncomfortable in front of the camera despite two decades in the music industry.
In the second chapter, "The Studio", Jackson expressed her opinion on recording work, stating that although she usually enjoyed the experience, it was, at times, tedious.
She discusses further how her songs are built up in layers and parts, from melodies and background vocals or sounds. The DVD reveals that the eight dancers had been practicing for over a week before they started working with Jackson. The dancers then had three days to rehearse with Jackson and a further two days to complete the video.
Jackson described the video as a metaphor for sexual tension. Jackson told the director that she wanted a futuristic, moody concept, and he came up with the idea of jumping between planets. The final chapter is the lead music video in its entirety.
Lyrically, it explores erotic themes such as sexual fetishism and sadomasochism , along with other themes such as love and relationships. The album opens with a second spoken-word intro "I. Its lyrical composition is based on Jackson's sexual bravado, questioning the listener while responding with a chant of "sexy, sexy".
The song's chorus compares her body to instruments such as a guitar and amplifier, using metaphors to demonstrate sexual climax. Its lyrics see Jackson not wanting to end her relationship because she feels like her partner is "the one".
Like "So Much Betta", "The 1" sees Jackson trying to convince her love interest she's "the one" for him. The album was titled Discipline as an acknowledgment of Jackson's commitment, focus, and dedication to her career.
Jackson stated: "I wanted to name the album Discipline because it has a lot of different meanings for me, but the most important would be work — to have done this for as long as I have And to have had the success that I've had — not excluding God by any means — but it takes a great deal of focus. Discipline was released on February 26, by Island Records ; its deluxe edition, which included a bonus DVD, was released simultaneously.
Her performance on Total Request Live was her first MTV appearance in six years, following her being blacklisted by the network due to the Super Bowl halftime show incident in She was also scheduled to perform on Saturday Night Live but cancelled it due to illness.
Jackson had to reschedule nine dates on the first leg of the tour due to vestibular migraines. The album's lead single " Feedback ", was released for digital download in December Subsequent singles were promoted and released primarily in the US.
The song "2nite", although not released as a single, was featured on the second part of the soundtrack to the film Sex and the City , entitled Sex and the City, Vol. Discipline received mixed to positive reviews from most music critics. Just lie back and enjoy the sensations as pure aural auto-eroticism. Music UK gave it seven out of ten stars saying "Still, if not perfect, there's plenty to like on Discipline, and while none of it is exactly vintage Janet, there's enough here to keep the Jackson name on pop's A-list for a little while longer.
The Boston Globe music critic Joan Anderman criticized the album, saying "Jackson's decision to recycle the nympho routine one more time is just boring [ Instead, she has trussed herself up in vinyl to coo another batch of digitized porn.

I'm still mad that Feedback didn't smash - the perfect sound for her at that time. I like the album more than All For You as well. Mikal , Feb 20, My Discipline playlist looks like this: I.
All this needed was extra Darkchild tracks to beef it up and you have an album that could rival any Good Girl Gone Bad or Blackout. As it stands the album is marred with bland Dupri ballads in the midsection which drags it down. Darkchild was really onto something reviving his era "What About Us? I wanted more of that.
