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

This week&#8217;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&#8217;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&#8217;s &#8220;Santa Claus is Coming to Town,&#8221; which appears for the first time at No. 46. The song is by no means really &#8220;new,&#8221; 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 &#8220;Santa Claus is Coming to Town&#8221; 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 &#8216;70s and early &#8216;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 &#8216;80s and &#8216;90s. His output slowed in the &#8216;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&#8217;s entered yet another decade with &#8220;Santa Claus is Coming to Town,&#8221; which appears on the ranking dated January 2, 2021, 52 years after his first smash on the ever-changing list.

It really is amazing how well he still sells.

That just goes to show you how timeless his music really is. There are times that I will hear one of his songs and have to look at the release date to even realize how old the song is. Do you think any of the new artists music will remain that timeless 30 or 40 years down the road?

That's a hard question. most kids today seem to be in the newer stuff. i mean i wouldn't be surprise years from now these kids be talking about michael jackson. i mean there some kids today who talking about michael so i don't know. older artists still get love today by younger audiences so i guess it up to the person.

I think the big acts - Elvis, Beatles, Queen, Madonna, Michael Jackson - they are so huge that of course the music is amazing, but they are also part of history somehow, so they will forever be played on the radio. - To know their music is like knowing the history of music.

I think maybe Beyonce has a bit of that, Lady Gaga has an amazing voice - but I am not quite sure their music is as timeless - and if their impact on music history is enough to secure them imortallity.

The Way You Make Me Feel platinum record in England...

The British Phonographic Industry, better known by its initials BPI, has just updated its certifications including the title The Way You Make Me Feel now certified Platinum Disc with the sale of 600,000 units.

Note for BPI certifications that since 2014 (Singles) and 2015 (Albums), the sales count has reflected consumption via audio streaming and in April 2018, certifications were renamed the BPI Awards at the BRIT Certified Awards, with eligibility for video streams added shortly thereafter.

When a single or album has reached the appropriate sales level as measured by Official Charts, the tracks are now "automatically certified" by the BPI. Streams are now counting towards album and single certifications and are measured according to the eligibility rules of the charts established by Official Charts.

Yep which puts MJ ahead of Billy Joel in the US and back to the 6th best selling musical act in US history.
