michael_jackson_123

Six years ago today, the late great King of Pop Michael Jackson passed onto eternity aged just 50.

And while he may be gone in the flesh, his legacy remains everlasting.

To celebrate his indisputable impact on Pop music and culture, That Grape Juice are spotlighting some of our favourite underrated MJ gems. Because, despite the trailblazing success of cuts such as ‘Billie Jean,’ ‘Bad,’ and ‘Remember The Time,’ even Michael wasn’t exempt from releasing songs that – for one reason or the other – went under the radar.

Weigh In: Billboard Compares Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Era To Michael Jackson’s ‘Dangerous’

prism katy perry michael jackson dangerous covers thatgrapejuice

There are only two artists in music history to lift five Hot 100 #1s from a single LP – Michael Jackson and Katy Perry.  Via their ‘Bad’ and ‘Teenage Dream’ albums respectively, the duo launched a quintet of chart-toppers to the coveted tally on the hems of awe-inspiring music videos and very dedicated fanbases.

Jackson’s iconic hits spent a collective 7 weeks atop the charts while Perry’s forgettable modern pop offerings spent nearly triple that time reigning.  But, while the latter has his name etched in history books as the ‘King of Pop,’ Billboard thought it time to  remind fans that this pop princess’s impressive sales performance is by no means anything to downplay.

Indeed, it’s no secret that her domination of today’s charts knows few rivals.  But, just as the diva’s takeover of Superbowl XLIX’s halftime show approaches, the music Bible stacked up the pop titans’ follow-up records, ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Prism’ to see how well they compare to their respective preceding releases as well as each other’s.

Weigh In: Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

Top Three Selling Albums of The Year Were All Released In 2013

The year’s fourth quarter is being greeted with dismal news:  not one single album released this year has been certified platinum.

Indeed, despite at least 60 songs shifting over 1 million copies, their parent albums cannot proclaim such.  We thought things were bad last year when only five albums went platinum, led by Justin Timberlake‘s ’20/20 Experience’ (which had sold over 2 million copies by last year’s closing).  But, this year’s looking to be much worse.

To add insult to injury, 2014’s best selling album by a solo act is Beyonce‘s self titled fifth album…which was released in December 2013.

We’re waiting on Rihanna, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift to save the day.
