Michael Jackson Rules The Pop Charts

Michael Jackson Rules The Pop Charts

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Rapper Fabolous ruled the Billboard 200 album chart for the first time in his career on Wednesday, but a Michael Jackson`s hits collection sold more copies and becomes the year`s second-best selling album.

Since Jackson`s `Number Ones` came out more than 18 months ago -- in 2003, to be exact -- it is ineligible for the Billboard 200, and instead leads the Comprehensive Albums chart, which combines catalog and current releases." Reuters

Fabolous may be Ghetto Fabolous, but Michael Jackson appeals to all generations and demographics. More than a month after his death, Michael Jackson fans are still buying his albums in record numbers.

The singles in the compilation disc "Number Ones" are decades old, but this CD stands an excellent chance of becoming the top-selling album of 2009.

Fabolous may rule the pop chats today, but in ten years nobody will remember him. The music of the King of Pop is not only fabulous, but it`s eternal.
