Thank you for posting this - I saw this on Twitter last week but couldn't find an "official" notice.

There are very few artists who have achieved this feat - but what is amazing is that this is from his solo career so the records sold from his J5 days aren't counted. That is incredible to me.

What would be interesting for me is to know how much has been sold since June 25, 2009.

I am really glad that Michael continues to be recognized for his achievements. He deserves to be. It's my hope that all of the stupid talk about "the next King of Pop" will cease. There is only ONE King of Pop - and that is Michael Jackson. Now and forever!!!

Blessings to you :)

I dare say many of us have at least one of his albums, lol.  Isn't it cool to think we are actually a physical part of Michael's record-breaking success....I think so anyways :)

Blessings Always
