First week sales only resulted in a pathetic debut of #23.

I expect to see sales in its second week nose dive off the charts.

MJ can't get into the top 10 in the continued declining market.

Even with all the hype and promotion by Sony, it generated low sales.

Very little interest.

The results of Michael Jackson's ruined legacy reflected in numbers.

More declining music sales with every new Sony MJ product.

Death, child molestation, drugs, racism towards Jewish people...

All part of his fading legacy in the eyes of the general public.

@octo.You really hit the nail on the head.Sony reps must be so disappointed with the very low sales of the first three releases since way over paying his estate for a ten album deal.Certainly they know now that it will not get any better.

Sony was thinking in terms of selling an x number of copies per CD.

They simply under estimated his loyal music buying fan base.

It was certainly a good deal for the estate but a loser for Sony.

Did they really hope that with his death, people were going to buy?

He is a dead pedophile.

I know of no one that thinks about MJ as they once did.

I know quite a few people.

MJ is considered to be a dead child molester.

Second week sales of "Bad 25" continues to slide.

It it down from #23 to a disappointing #52.

Looks like Sony's mass promotions "Bad 25" failed.

Very little resulting new sales for this release.

Of course, the original "Bad" sits unsold in stores.

The used CD bins are full of MJ's entire catalog.

Very telling.

Bad was the fifth highest selling record of all time.
It sold 30-45 million copies. I hardly consider that hype.
I hardly consider that little interest.

MJ's legacy was set many years ago. He is still receiving awards, even after his death. It sounds like his legacy is secure to me.

Thriller is still the highest selling record of all time.
MJ made popular music videos what they are today.

All the current music videos with dance, and stories all follow MJ's legacy.

Before MJ, videos were basically the artists singing their songs live.

MJ revolutionized the music video. Yes, his legacy is secure.

He was immortalized like no other single artist.

MJ is a testament to the American Dream.

All recording artists strive for MJ's success.
He is the goal. Therefore, his legacy will live forever.

MJ is still the King. Only one other artist has been crowned as such. And, he is the King Of Rock 'n Roll.

Nobody will ever touch Elvis's throne, and no one will ever touch Michael's throne.

So, dream on haterz.

MJ sold big in the eighties and marketed to the kiddie crowd.

I saw his videos on MTV in the eighties and still ignored them.

I was too busy listening to hard rock and heavy metal at the time.

Just because something sells a lot, doesn't make it good.

In fact, I think it hurts his legacy cause he didn't record much.

In all those years, The Jackson 5/The Jacksons never reached #1.

Thriller was MJ's first #1 record album.

Selling massed produced albums hurt future sales of the same songs.

Just because MJ crowned himself king, doesn't make it so.

Because he sold too much, he did not make enough solid music.

People aren't going to buy over what they already own, right?

I think MJ's post death releases are certainly reflecting that.

You mean the lousy "I Am An Elvis Fan" ???

Why would any Elvis fan buy common Elvis material they already have?

There is no unreleased Elvis demos on it.

"Prince From Another Planet" is next in line for Elvis on Sony.

It is stuff I've had for years.

Laugh all you want, Jermaine. Sony is garbage.

I buy only Elvis imports to get my fix.

So how many other artists have made it to the top of the charts after their deaths? I don't think people used to expect a deceased musical artist to go on selling even more music even after he was dead and buried.

Everyone is entitled to their musical tastes, and just because you were unimpressed and uninterested in MJ doesn't mean that everyone has to share your opinion. I personally think the Beatles are highly overrated, but I don't go around complaining about them.

Artists with #1's or top tens after their deaths:

Hank Williams
Patsy Cline
Buddy Holly
Jimi Hendrix
Elvis Presley
The Doors
John Lennon
Roy Orbison
Tupac
Biggie Smalls
Johnny Cash
Frank Sinatra

Of all those deceased artists, only Elvis did it 25 years GONE.

Amazing, isn't it?

Figures you would think The Beatles are highly overrated.

If only MJ hadn't molested Jordan Chandler in 1993.

Still looking towards insult and ridicule to give you validation. Give it up. You are only impressing yourself with your ignorance. Except maybe other ignorant people.

More insults and still no validation. Insulting MJ and his fans will not give you validation. You are just a nothing hater. You are ignored and shunned in society. So, you come to a haterz forum seeking recognition and validation by spewing your haterz verbose.

Feel anything but emptiness in your soul?

I definitely feel the emptiness in your soul. I'm so sorry for you that you can't feel it. If you did, you might change, for the better.

Evil Walks by AC/DC comes to mind when I think about you. So sad.

Thanks, reverend. If not for your ugly accusations and ponderous preaching, I'd not know anything about the meaning of life.

As a musician I appreciate classical, blues, reggae, country, disco, heavy metal, classic rock, and many other forms of music.
Lots of racists are stuck liking or appreciating only country music. Other racists only like heavy metal or hard rock.
Still, even they have to appreciate guys like Jimi Hendrix or Charley Pride.
Just because you are a racist and can't appreciate other genres, doesn't mean the music is bad. It only means that you are an ignorant, close-minded racist.
But Chas...I do appreciate the talents of other musicians and genres.

Just because MJ destroyed his own legacy, doesn't make me racist.

I'm just pointing out the failure of the new CD.

Had MJ kept his nose clean in life, he would've been more honored.

That was his own doing and I think his low sales are showing that.

I do have black artists in my CD collection:

Prince
Jimi Hendrix
Fats Domino
Chuck Berry
Curtis Mayfield
Robert Johnson
BB King
The Temptations
Marvin Gaye
Stevie Wonder
Thin Lizzy
Snoop Dogg
Dr Dre
Tupac

I'm far from a closed minded racist.
