In the wake of Michael Jackson’s death, fans are lining up to listen to his music in record numbers. In fact, the current iTunes Top 25 has songs from the Jackson’s songs 19 times. Nine of the top 10 albums are also Michael’s. No previous artist, living or dead, has achieved that level of popularity on the music service since it opened in 2003. Oh, and he is 15 of the top 15 on Amazon.
Love him or hate him, he could sell albums.
