Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (1986)

When mentioning the names Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, usually the first thing you think about is Janet Jackson at her peak. That’s because the pop music duo helped turn her into a premier triple threat pop queen with her 1986 smash album Control. From there, Jam and Lewis continued to spew out the hits for Janet while also crafting some ill tracks for Boyz II Men with “On Bended Knee,” Usher with “U Remind Me,” and Mariah Carey with “Through The Rain.” To put things in perspective even further, the duo actually has more Billboard Hot 100 number ones than any other songwriting/production team in history.
