Michael Jackson Proves Invincible On Billboard
Singer’s first album of all-new material in almost
a decade sells more than 366,000 copies.
“While many may doubt Michael Jackson’s status as the King of Pop, the human
enigma is poised to rule the pop charts — for one week, at least — as
Invincible, his first album of all-new material in almost a decade, will
debut atop next week’s Billboard albums chart.
On the heels of a wide-reaching publicity campaign that included the
recording of a star-studded benefit single (see ” ‘NSYNC
Join Jackson’s Charity Single; Mariah, Celine Sing In Spanish”), one concert
for charity (see ” ‘NSYNC,Michael Jackson, P. Diddy, Mariah Stand United At D.C. Concert”) and two others for himself (see “Michael Jackson Smooth At Tribute, But Wait Was Criminal”), Jackson’s long-awaited studio follow-up to 1992’s Dangerous sold more than 366,000 copies in its first week in stores, according to SoundScan figures released Wednesday (November 7).” – 7th November 2001 MTV.com
