I wonder if this official chart company released a press news when Adele overtook The Queen.
In order Adele to overtake Michael, she had to overtake The Queen first, so was there any news about that?
I'm quite sure if Adele climb up to number four on that list, they are not going to say, she over took DS, Oasis or PF.
They are only going to say that she overtook Michael
We should take it as a compliment to Michael. They obviously don't consider other bands or singers on that list as important as MJ or consider him as the only one worthy enough to overtake.
Anyways, I think all this have to do with how many more readers they get when they insert Michael's name with what ever
they are trying to promote.
From Madonna's producer coming up with this nonsense, Katy Perry tie with Michael and now Adele.
I read it somewhere that Michael Jackson still gets 17 million google searches/month.
So lets say if Adele normally gets 10 million searches/month, but if her promoters add Michael's name in the "news",then her numbers would add up to 27 million. The same goes with Katy Perry or anyone else trying to promote something.
All these sort of news come up when they have something to sell to wider audience.
Btw, I have nothing against Adele and love her 21 album which I also own.
