Michael Jackson's Albums SOARING In Sales / by

The King of Pop, is still setting record, even after his death with his amazing album sales. Peep the article below...

Michael Jackson has three of the five best-selling albums in the U.S. for the second week in a row. Number Ones sold 339,000 copies this week and would have held at #1 on The Billboard 200 if catalog albums were eligible to compete on that chart. (The 2003 compilation sold a little more than twice as many copies this week as NOW 31, the album that holds the #1 spot.)

Thriller sold 187,000 copies and would have jumped from #3 to #2 if catalog albums were invited to the party. The Essential Michael Jackson sold 125,000 copies and would have dropped from #2 to #5. (Billboard excludes catalog albums from the big chart on the theory that new albums need the spotlight the chart provides more than past hits do.)

That's pretty dayum amazing. Even though it's expected, it pretty amazing. At my store we receive shipment 2 days of the week, sometime 3 and we get LOADED with Michael Jackson CD's & DVD's to sale. Most of the time we sell out that very same day we get them. GO head MJ! You're still living with us through your music.
