Following the tragic and sudden death of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson albums have been flying off the shelves. Compared to the 10,000 albums sold in the week prior to his death, over 300,000 albums such as Number Ones, The Essential Michael Jackson and Thriller sold this past week in response to this tragedy. It is expected, also, that those three albums will procure spots on Billboard's Top Pop Catalog chart and that Jackson may acquire over 5 spots in the Billboard's Top Ten, a feat that has yet to be accomplished by any musical artist.
