20 Y.O. is the ninth studio album by American singer-songwriter Janet Jackson. It was released on September 20, 2006 by Virgin Records. Its title references her third studio album, Control (1986), which commemorated its twentieth release anniversary in 2006. The release would represent Control's "celebration of the joyful liberation and history-making musical style". For the project, Jackson enlisted a variation of producers to work with her, including LRoc, Manuel Seal, The Avila Brothers and No I.D., in addition to her longtime partners Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and then-boyfriend Jermaine Dupri. Its musical style globalizes R&B and dance music.
