Yesterday, Today, & FOREVER The King of Pop

Michael Jackson: 1 of top 20 best selling artists of 2008



With little to no promotion & with his old music that never really gets old, Michael continues to be a trendsetter and sets records, even under the radar.  Not to mention that he  publishes and/or owns rights to several of the other best sellers, so hey, he wins either way…and that’s why he is the one and only King of Pop!
