"2300 Jackson Street" was the final album released by American band The Jacksons. For most of this album, Jermaine, Jackie, Randy, and Tito Jackson comprised The Jacksons. Michael Jackson and Marlon Jackson appear only on the title track, along with their other four brothers, and their sisters Rebbie and Janet (middle sister LaToya was, at the time of this album, estranged from the family and therefore does not appear on the song).

The Jacksons decided to enter new territory by working with New Jack Swing producers Teddy Riley and Gene Griffin on "She" and the title track (first collaboration with Michael, before the album "Dangerous") and the team L.A. & Babyface on the single "Nothin' (that compares 2 U)". The Jacksons co-produced four tracks with Attala Zane Giles, three songs were produced by Michael Omartian (one co-produced by The Jacksons), while "Maria" was produced by Jermaine Jackson.

The album's title and cover photograph represent the Jacksons' boyhood home in Gary, Indiana. "2300 Jackson Street" received some notice in R&B venues (alongside the title track), but was largely ignored by pop audiences. The Jacksons formally disbanded after its release, with Jermaine returning to his solo career, and Randy, Tito, and Jackie going on to become noted session musicians. To date, it is the lowest-selling album. The group disbanded in 1990, following the album's commercial underperformance.
