No New Albums Planned As Label Embraces One-Off Singles Model. 12-11-'18

The Estate Of Michael Jackson
The Estate Of Michael Jackson.

After the statement from the Michael Jackson Estate in Las Vegas during the Diamond Celebrations, we knew already that no new album is in the pipeline.

With the success of 'Don’t Matter To Me' with Drake, the industry is looking at a different way to put Michael Jackson unreleased material out there!

Sony Music CEO, Rob Stinger, revealed over the week-end they are planning to release unreleased Michael Jackson in a more one-off songs rather than full albums.

“We’re constantly scouring the catalogue for ideas, but there are no plans at the moment to put any more full-fledged albums out.

“We are looking at one-off songs. In this streaming world, that works because it’s a track-based world. There are a few gems out there that we may unearth individually over the next months and years, but we’re also very, very careful to make sure the fanbase doesn’t feel like they’ve been asked yet again to buy material they have. We are very careful about repacking and extremely cognisant of the fanbase that has everything.”

“What’s interesting with Michael is that not all artists have managed to bridge the gaps from the physical world to the iTunes world to the streaming world, but with Michael that’s not the case.

His streaming numbers are incredible. The technology at the moment enables us to do something different and highlight different songs and create concepts that will lead people to a greater understanding of the wider catalogue of Michael’s work.”

By going the route they did with Drake, the Estate and Sony will keep the momentum of anticipation going among the general public and the fans.

Not ruling out the repackaging of existing material but Sony is looking at a clever and more sensible repackaging like the 'Scream' compilation done last year for Halloween.

The mega-star lineup featured over 800 historical items of music legends Prince, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Aretha Franklin, Bernie Taupin, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, The Beatles and more.

Michael Jackson’s 'Bad' tour jacket, which was being sold for an amazing $298,000. Prior to the auction the jacket was expected to sell for $100,000, which means it almost reached three times more than the asking price.

The item is considered the one of the most recognized jackets worn by The King of Pop and was part of nearly 100 items collected by acclaimed philanthropist and businessman Milton Verret, who owns a world renowned collection of some of the most important pieces of rock-n-roll memorabilia, including Michael Jackson’s 'Thriller' jacket. Another 'Bad' item, a pair of custom created black spandex, fingerless forearm gloves with covered thumbs, worn by Jackson while performing on his 1987 to 1988 Bad tour sold for an incredible $41,600 more than four times its original starting estimate of $10,000. A portion of the proceeds from Milton Verret’s auction will benefit the Recording Academy’s MusiCares that works to help musicians and music-related people in need.

Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' Returns To Hot 100, Thanks To Halloween Gains. 06-11-'18

Thriller Album CoverMichael Jackson's horror pop classic 'Thriller' re-enters the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 31, thanks to its annual Halloween gains.

'Thriller' returns with 15,000 downloads sold, surging by 189 percent from the prior week, and 15.2 million U.S. streams, up 198 percent, in the week ending Nov. 1, according to Nielsen Music. The gains also help the song re-enter both the Digital Song Sales and Streaming Songs charts at No's. 11 and 30, respectively.

'Thriller' peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100 on March 3, 1984, and has returned to the Hot 100 thrice before during this decade. With its No. 31 re-entry, the track reaches its highest point since April 7, 1984, when it stood at No. 23.

(How is an over 30-year-old single eligible for the Hot 100, which ranks, almost exclusively, current hits via a blend of streaming, airplay and sales data? Songs not in a current release cycle can re-enter if they log notable gains in chart metrics and rank in the top 50.)

Further, Jackson's iconic 'Thriller' LP earns Greatest Gainer honors on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as it vaults from No. 102 to No. 42 (up 83 percent to 14,000 equivalent album units), also thanks to Halloween gains.

In the 62-year history of the Billboard 200, only the 'West Side Story' soundtrack has spent more weeks at No. 1 (54) than 'Thriller'. Jackson's signature set ranks at No. 3 on Billboard's Greatest of All-Time Billboard 200 Albums recap, behind only Adele's 21 and 'The Sound Of Music' soundtrack.

Katherine JacksonMichael Jackson’s Mother Katherine Suffers Another Stroke. 05-11-'18

Katherine Jackson has suffered another debilitating stroke, RadarOnline.com has confirmed exclusively with multiple sources.

This is her second major health setback since April, when the Jackson family matriarch suffered a previous stroke, Radar first reported.

Now, her famous family is preparing for the worst.

“Katherine had another stroke several weeks ago,” said a source. “Everyone is just bracing for her passing at this point.”

According to another source, the most recent stroke landed her in a Los Angeles-area hospital for about a week toward the end of the summer. Shortly after she returned home to recuperate, she had to see her doctors again.

“She’s not in good condition and is still struggling to speak. She has said she’s ready to be in heaven with her son,” added another source, referring to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who died in 2009.

Sadly, Katherine’s husband Joseph died from an aggressive form of cancer in June of this year.

As Radar has reported, Jackson family members have grown increasingly concerned about the 88-year-old’s health since Joe’s death.

And it turns out, their worst fears are coming true.

“Her health has rapidly declined since Joseph’s death,” said a source. “She’s been in such pain, both internal and external. Katherine seems to have given up on even trying in the past month, and it makes her family very sad to see her like this. She was always such a strong, strong woman.”
