Dream Street is the second studio album by American recording artist Janet Jackson, released in 1984 (see 1984 in music).

More pop than her debut album's "bubblegum soul" feel, the album wasn't the runaway success that Janet's father Joseph thought it would be, peaking at number one hundred forty-seven on the Billboard 200 in 1984. Today, this is Jackson's rarest album and is much sought after by fans, though it is still available as an expensive Japanese import. The album did have one modest hit for Jackson, the top ten R&B single, "Don't Stand Another Chance", produced by brother Marlon. Also, the video for the song "Dream Street", her first music video, was shot during the shooting of the TV show Fame.

This would be the last of Jackson's pre-stardom albums. She would break out of her squeaky-clean sounds with her Control album in 1986.

It was made available to iTunes on May 15, 2007.
