Many of you may already know about this but there's a concerted effort to try and get Billie Jean to 1 Billion views - on Michael's official You Tube account - before his birthday

The current lock down is a unique opportunity to take advantage of, please watch/play Billie Jean as much as you can ;)

If you search the hashtag #1billionformj on TikTok, Twitter & Instagram you'll see fans dancing to Billie Jean to help promote the cause. Maybe you'll post your own video as well?

It's great to see the worldwide MJ fam get together for this, maybe with this effort we can get one of his albums back onto the Top 10 like Janet's fans recently did with 'Control'? :yes:

I hate to be negative, but it's unlikely that Billie Jean will get to a billion views before his birthday. Don't get me wrong, it will eventually get to a billion views, but it will take around another 12-15 months, in my opinion.

Regarding Janet's fans getting Control back into the iTunes top 10, it isn't really that big of a deal, as sales don't really have much impact on the main charts like Billboard 200. This is the day and age of streaming and MJ's streams are significantly higher than Janet's streams. Because of MJ's streams, he has two albums each week featuring on Billboard 200, whereas Janet has none.

And Thriller (song) got to number 1 on iTunes in the past two years during the Halloween period.

Is it true that you need to play one other video between every time you play Billie Jean to make each view count? Meaning you cant put Billie Jean on repeat as that would not count. If the campaign is serious that issue should be adress, but I have not seen a mumbling word about it. Like with Spotify, if you turn off the volume the plays dont count.

I assume its this video that is targeteted?

I really don't care if this short film don't get 1 billion views. this short film legacy no matter what. but I join in just for the fun of it. it's gonna happen one day. maybe not for his birthday this year but probably next year or so.

Congrats to Janet. Thriller always be 1 number during the Halloween season.

Yup, Thriller will probably go through the roof this Halloween, when all the YouTube views of the official short film are counted in. :D

Looking at current views it would have to take around 2m views per day on average. Since I have no life I observed numbers for the past 2 hours and in order to hit 1 billion before MJ's birthday people would have to watch it 3 times as often as they do now. Unless I just happened to observe not very "viewable" hours of course.
Despite slim chances it's still a nice idea, especially since it can boost the Billboard charts :)
