Michael Jackson's "Xscape" has been knocked off the top of the British album charts by the British rock band, Coldplay after just one short week. In America, the dead Michael Jackson failed to go number one. It looks like Sony's extra promotion for the dead clown was completely wasted as the new posthumous album quickly falls down the Billboard charts around the globe in record time. The results of Sony's massive campaign was a failure and apparently, very short lived. Next up is Wade Robson's and Jimmy Safechuck's child molestation trial against the Michael Jackson estate. The bad press continues five years after the clown's pathetic demise as we finally learn more dark secrets of Wacko Jacko's perverted, sexual lust beyond the soiled gates of his disgusting pleasure palace inside his locked bedroom at the disgraceful Neverland Ranch and amusement park, all those years ago. There should be some interesting bombshells just waiting to be revealed as we count the days ahead.

Haha! It only took one week to knock Xscape off number one. And Coldplay isn't even all that great either.

Difference in sales is staggering:

Coldplay: 168,000+
MJ's estate: 47,000+

Biggest first week sales for albums released in the UK belong to Paolo Nutini and Pharrell (100,000+ and 70,000+).

MJ's estate released their leftover MJ album in a dead week.

Amazing! Not even remotely close to what the f'loons must have been expecting.

Hmmm, is it possible SONY tried to have other outlets not release anything at the same time?

If this turns out to be the case...

*laughing at SONY!*
