Sixteen finalists will win Jackson’s complete album discography on CD. Each design uploaded to the contest site ( will be assigned a unique link that can be shared.

“20 Years Old” is due Sept. 26. The set was produced by Jackson’s boyfriend, Virgin Urban president Jermaine Dupri, as well as longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis.

The single “Call on Me” is currently No. 16 in its fourth week on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
