After the sad death of Michael Jackson the other day, I couldn’t help but wonder what was going to happen with his music on the charts. I had a feeling that it was going to re-enter, but didn’t think it would have the impact that it has.
As of this posting at 2am on Satuday, the King of Pop holds 7 of the Top 10 singles on iTunes – No.10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, as well as the No.1 song with “Man In the Mirror.” Additionally, he is holding all Top 10 music video spots on iTunes at the moment.
Also interesting is that he holds the top 9 albums in the Top 10 as well! Depending on Black Eyed Peas sales of their newest album “The E.N.D.” this week, there is a chance that Michael Jackson will hold the top 10 albums on Billboard next week, something that has never happened in the history of music.
