    Cool Michael Jackson Has Now Charted Hits On The Hot 100 In Seven Different Decades

    This week’s Hot 100 is filled to the brim with Christmas favorites, almost all of which are years or even decades old and which now return to the tally every December as millions of Americans rush to stream and buy those seasonal smashes they can’t get enough of. A handful of holiday-themed compositions debut on the latest edition of the chart, with one of the most successful acts of all time collecting one more very important win.

    New on the latest Hot 100 is The Jackson 5’s “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” which appears for the first time at No. 46. The song is by no means really “new,” but it does find its way to the tally 50 years after it was first released. In doing so, the most famous of the brothers manages a feat that few in history can claim.

    With another hit on the Hot 100 in the current decade, Jackson extends his tenure as an artist whose legacy never seems to stop expanding, even years after his passing. Because “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” appears on the chart when it does, as opposed to only two years ago, the legendary vocalist has now landed at least one new placement on the tally in each of the past seven decades.

    Jackson first appeared on the Hot 100 alongside his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5 in very late 1969. They wasted no time sending their introductory smash "I Want You Back" first into the top 10 (in December of that year) and then to No. 1 in early 1970. Once that track came and went, the band was off and running, and they would go on to send quite a few hits to the list throughout the ‘70s and early ‘80s.

    Once Jackson went solo, the Hot 100 wins kept on coming, and he had no trouble landing successes on the all-genre tally throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. His output slowed in the ‘00s, but he still managed to send several cuts to the chart.

    Since his passing in 2009, Jackson has landed just a handful of new Hot 100 placements, including at least three between 2010 and 2019 alongside stars like Justin Timberlake and Drake. Now he’s entered yet another decade with “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” which appears on the ranking dated January 2, 2021, 52 years after his first smash on the ever-changing list.

    This means he has charted for a span of 51 years on the charts which is more than his lifespan indicating that his music really will live forever!

    Also, MJ is the only artist with a Billboard Top 40 hit across 5 decades (6 decades if we include the Jackson 5). When Thriller hits the top 40 this decade (last reached Top 40 in 2018), he will expand the record to 6 decades!
