Michael Jackson: The World’s Greatest…Still.


Bittersweetness: Michael Jackson’s ATV Music Publishing

Initially, the news broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes.

He worked so hard and suffered so much for it.

What a great investment it was.
He said he would never sell it…and HE never did. But he is no longer here.

So perhaps cashing out is for the best now, nearly seven years after his passing. His children will all be grownups soon and I can’t help but to think that he would not want them to have to carry the burden that goes along with being co-owners of the largest music publishing catalogue in the world; though it was one he proudly and bravely carried himself for various reasons, including as a business example to other artists.

Music History will forever have to acknowledge the fact that Sony/ATV came to be because of Michael Jackson, the investment and deal he was wise enough to make.

Rest easy Michael.

The King Of Pop Is On Top Of The World With XSCAPE!

XSCAPE LIGHTS UP THE CHARTS GLOBALLY – #1 IN 52 COUNTRIES, TOP 5 IN 87

#1 STREAMING ALBUM IN THE WORLD

“The tracks remind us of the musical genius that was Michael Jackson,” The Guardian UK

“Timbaland’s transformations are masterly,” NY TIMES

“…you want to push your jacket sleeves up and get down,” (“Love Never Felt So Good”) SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

“The magic continues,” The Washington Post

Michael Jackson’s new album XSCAPE took over the top spots on the global charts this week, hitting #1 in 52 countries and Top 5 in 87 other. It is #1 on Amazon and #1 on Spotify, taking the throne from Frozen, which has had the top spot on Spotify since January. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard album chart and #1 on Hits.

Curated and produced by Epic Records Chairman and CEO LA Reid, XSCAPE got off to a thrilling start with the Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake first single, “Love Never Felt So Good” which rocketed into the Top 5 position in the U.S. and lit up the iTunes charts globally peaking at 17#1 and 67 Top 5 positions, and hitting the #1 spot on Spotify U.S. and the world this week. The video for Michael Jackson/Justin Timberlake duet of the song is #1 on iTunes.

To date, Jackson has sold one billion records worldwide, so it’s no surprise that XSCAPE has gone #1 in all four corners of the world, including Australia, the UK, France, Malaysia, and South Africa. “Love Never Felt So Good” lit up the iTunes charts around the world, peaking at #5 in the U.S., #1 in 18 countries and #5 in 89 countries netting Michael his highest Billboard chart bow since 1995 and fourth-highest debut ever at #20 — marking his 49th hit single.

The worldwide launch of the album included the “Slave to the Rhythm” dance performance at the Billboard Music Awards which was created for fans by the Estate of Michael Jackson as a tribute to the King of Pop and to capture the essence, the excitement and the magic that is Michael Jackson. Good Morning America called it “Michael Magic”. It took over a year and a team of 104 cast and crew, to create an entire stage on which to produce the performance that showcased Michael’s moves, took up the entire stage and was bigger and better than anything that has gone before. The audience swelled to 11.5 million during the half hour of the highly anticipated performance, proving again that Michael Jackson remains the biggest entertainer of all time.

Released on May 13 by Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, XSCAPE features a long awaited collection of 8 new songs originally recorded between 1983 and 1999, and showcase why Michael Jackson remains an indelible influence on contemporary artists today. The songs were curated by Reid, and then ‘contemporized’ by lead producer Timbaland and some of the hottest production talents in the world including JRoc, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Giorgio Truinfort and John McClain, co-executor of the Estate of Michael Jackson.

Epic’s rollout of XSCAPE has been massive. Songs from the album were premiered on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and featured on Dancing With the Stars, the Today Show, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, and every major entertainment news show around the world. SiriusXM launched a Michael Jackson channel this week, and the album’s first single was premiered on the iHeart Radio Music Awards.
