SAY SAY SAY, Michael Jackson's 1983 duet with Paul McCartney, has emerged as the late King of Pop's most popular song in the U.S. following an in-depth study of the pop superstar's chart statistics.
Billboard magazine fact checkers have been compiling the ultimate Jackson hit list to coincide with the first anniversary of the singer's death next week (25Jun10) - and Say Say Say has edged out Billie Jean, the Jackson 5's I'll Be There and Beat It to claim the top spot.
According to the researchers, although Billie Jean spent seven weeks at number one in America - one week longer than Say Say Say - the MCCartney duet spent more time in the top 10.
