Welcome to Solid Gold Soul



Michael Jackson

As fully expected, Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” album enters the Billboard 200 albums chart with an impressive 373,000 copies sold, the fifth-best sales week for an album in the U.S. this year, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The companion album to the musical documentary film of the same name is Jackson’s sixth No. 1 on the tally and it arrives with his best sales frame for an album since 1995’s “HIStory” started atop the Billboard 200 with 391,000 copies.

Jackson’s first No. 1 album was 1983’s record-breaking “Thriller.” He later scored the pole position with “Bad,” “Dangerous,” “HIStory” and “Invincible.” Earlier this year, Jackson also notched a No. 1 on the Top Comprehensive Albums and Top Pop Catalog Albums charts with the 2003 greatest hits set “Number Ones.”

Meanwhile, the “This Is It” film is already the second-highest grossing musical concert film in the U.S. and Canada behind “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour” ($65.3 million).
