Michael Jackson death triggers record Songs sale on iTunes

Friday, June 26, 2009  |  0 comments
Following Michael Jackson's unfortunate sudden death at the age of 50 on Thursday, Apple has inadvertently found itself profiting from this through the iTunes Store. It is being reported that a staggering nine out of ten top albums came from the 'King of Pop'.

Also six out of the top ten songs being purchased on the US store belonged to the legendary singer. About 19 of the top 25 music videos were either for Jackson specifically or else one of his collaborative projects, such as the "We Are the World" charity song.

No previous artist, living or dead, has achieved that level of popularity on the music service since it opened in 2003.
