While we were stuffing our faces with Turkey and Mac & Cheese, the debut of BAD 25, the documentary of the making of Michael Jackson’s BAD aired on ABC! The documentary features interviews from those that worked with MJ on the album, and others that were involved in what is arguably the album that propelled the King of Pop into international super-stardom. Not to mention, it was all done with the ‘Spike Lee Joint’ touch. To watch the documentary in full, hit the jump. (more…)Read More
Not everything in Chris Brown‘s recent trip to NYC was controversial; he broke his vow to not do interviews this year by sitting down with Fuse to converse about his upcoming album, Fortune, how aliens inspired the album’s cover art and the time where he almost got his hero Michael Jackson on a record with him.
Here’s the second part of the interview below:
1. Adele – 21 – 296,549 - Y’all thought I was joking when I said she has a legitimate shot at surpassing 10M albums sold? Well, I was. Forget “legitimate,” she will break that barrier some point very soon. She damn near sold 300K last week? Unreal.
2. Whitney Houston – Greatest Hits – 173,778 – For situations like this, I always refer to Jadakiss’ classic line. “Controvery sells, but not like death.”
4. Tyga – Careless World – 61,231 - Considering the success of “Rack City,” one would probably expect this number to be higher. Then you remember this number is based largely off digital sales because all of albums were taken off shelves, including Best Buy.
13. Drake – Take Care – 26,025 - I’m going to keep saying it until it happens (or doesn’t). A video for “Underground Kingz” would be dope.
14. Rihanna – Talk That Talk – 23,202 – Imagine the controversy that’d come if she and Chris Brown actually shot a video for their “Cake (Remix).” (Keep reading…)Read More
Earlier today, Dr. Conrad Murray was found GUILTY of involuntary manslaughter in the murder case of Michael Jackson who past away from acute propofol intoxication in 2009. The case has been ongoing since the top of the year. The former charge carries a maximum penalty of 4 years in prison and loss of his medical license, and the latter charge carries no criminal penalty. Conrad Murray was free throughout the entire trial but was taken away in handcuffs after the verdict was reached. His sentencing is not until November 29th and he will remain in prison until the sentencing. R.I.P Michael JacksonRead More
1. Taylor Swift – Speak Now – 276,000 - The holidays were kind to young Taylor as she moved over a quarter million units for an album that was released on October 25. I’m not sure of her total numbers are, but if there was any album capable of hitting diamond status, it’d be this one.
5. Michael Jackson – Michael – 150,000 – Mike should be gold in a few weeks. Somewhere, tears of joy stream down Joe Jackson’s face.
6. Jamie Foxx – Best Night Of My Life – 144,000 – This was actually Jamie’s highest debut ever and I’m actually surprised he sold this much. Still, I’ll give respect to him for it. He should have left the song “15 Minutes” to Mario though.
7. Eminem – Recovery – 137,000 - He. Just. Keeps. Selling. He’s now well over 3.3 million copies sold.
8. Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday – 133,000 - Guess who’s creeping up on platinum? Birdman and Slim win again.
9. Â Keyshia Cole – Calling All Hearts – 128,000 - Like Foxx, I’m surprised she moved this much. Especially after the lack of support she received after going with Nicki on the first single. (Keep reading…)Read More
3. Michael Jackson – Michael – 228,000 - I haven’t heard the album, but the word is it’s a train wreck.
5. R. Kelly – Love Letter – 154,000 - This is a win all the way around. Without nearly the amount of promo as some of his past albums, the Pied Piper still managed to release impressive first week numbers. And on top of it all, the album is pretty damn good. “How Do I Tell Her?” is a monster of a ballad.
7. Diddy-Dirty Money – Last Train To Paris – 101,000 - When Puff doesn’t attempt to rap, this is an enjoyable album. Good thing for the group though, there are more than its fair share of singles on here.
8. Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday – 97,000 - Nicki still moving close to 100K a week? Impressive. This time next week she should be at 700K. (Keep reading…)Read More
Speaking toÂ Rolling Stone, the Black Eyed Peas singer alleged that the posthumous albumÂ Michael features material that Jackson would have never made available to the public.
“I knew this man,” he said. “And he was very critical about every single detail. He stood in the studio himself, mastering and mixing everything. How can you release a record without that Michael Jackson? It’s not Michael Jackson.”
The star continued: “I heard the song that’s on the Internet now ['Breaking News'] and I’m like, ‘That ain’t Mike’. He wasn’t there to do his micro-Michael-managing that he did with ‘Thriller’ and ‘Billie Jean’. It disgusts me.”
Earlier this morning,Â Michael‘s producer Teddy RileyÂ admitted that he enhanced Jackson’s vocals on certain tracks.
