Prior to that, people used to buy albums.
    Very true. MJs singles [bar Earth Song and a few others] would never do that well. The first single from the album was always a smash, but that was because people didn't have the album yet.

    His singles would do well for that time period and in relation to his contemporaries. I guess if you are comparing the sales of some of his biggest hits to sales of some of the biggest hits of the 21st century, then of course his singles don't do that well. But if you are comparing him to his contemporaries such as Prince, Whitney, Madonna, Janet, Stevie, then his singles have done really well.

    In the 1980s and 1990s having a single that would achieve sales of more than 500,000 copies in the USA or The UK was a huge achievement.
    Single was not the main format and they were also on average SIXFOLD more expensive than a download.

    Singles were huge for a few years in the 90s in the UK. There were many big chart singles battles and it was an area that the younger demographic really owned. Comparatively I remember the US turning their backs on the single around the same time (maybe just after). It was quite 'unusual' to find a physical CD single of a hit song.

    US Charts:

    Billboard 200
    The Essential Michael Jackson: 47(41) 243 weeks

    Top Catalogue albums
    The Essential Michael Jackson: 1(3) 296 weeks

    The Essential Michael Jackson spends its 8th week on the Catalogue chart, 7 of which have come this year. It's nice to see Essential MJ replace Number Ones as the main greatest hits album in the US, as it has a better tracklist.

    Oh please. Don't go there. You may not like the song but that's definitely Michael's vocals on Don't Matter To Me.

    The way that tweet is worded made out its MJs work. Its not. It's a poorly filtered sample. It's obviously him, I'm not saying otherwise.

    Sorry if I came across as rude in my post.

    I completely agree with you. They should word as 'Drake featuring Michael Jackson' and not as 'Drake and Michael Jackson.'

    This is a fake account. 'Spotify News' yet it's only MJ related stories?
