Nový album nedosiahol 1 miesto..., ale Michael je prvý...

... napriek sklamaniu, že nový album Michaela Jacksona Xscape sa nedostal na vrchol albumového rebríčka v USA, MJ Estate vo svojom vyhlásení ďakuje všetkým fanúšikom na obrovskú podporu, ktorú vyjadrili za ostatné 3 týždne.

Podľa predajnosti sa z nového albumu Xscape predalo 157 tisíc kusov od svojho vydania 13.5., iba o 7 tisíc menej ako album skupiny the Black Keys.

Napriek tomu sa mu darí lepšie ako albumu Michael z roku 2010, ktorý debutoval na 3 mieste, aj keď sa ho predalo viac (228 tisíc za prvý týždeň).

Podľa Billboardu, skladba “Love Never Felt So Good” je pre Michaela už jeho 29 singel v TOP10, a Michael sa tak stal prvým umelcom, ktorý má v priebehu 5 dekád singel v TOP10.

(poznámka - viac TOP10 hitov mala iba Madonna /38/ a the Beatles /34/)

Michael mal svoj prvý hit v TOP10 v roku 1971 si skladbou Got To Be There.

Tu je odkaz od MJ Estate v pôvodnom znení:

“By now, we know that many of you have seen all of the charts around the world. We are so proud of the way that the MJ fan community has rallied to support Michael and his legacy by buying Xscape. The events that you organized were outstanding, and the posts, tweets, Instagrams, blogs, and other messages encouraging friends and family to buy, along with your purchases of multiple copies of the album were instrumental in selling as many units as we did. While we were disappointed that the record fell just short of claiming Michael’s 7th #1 on the Billboard chart, the album is number one in many territories and is the #1 album in overall worldwide sales, a feat we are extremely proud of. It’s a new world out there, and the fact that Xscape remains #1 on Spotify and Rhapsody and that the “Love Never Felt So Good” video is #1 on iTunes and in the Top 20 at YouTube cannot be ignored. The world has rallied again behind Michael’s music, and we, as a community, should be proud of the album’s performance this week. We’re only just getting started!”
