Jackson Still The King Of Pop In Britain

MICHAEL JACKSON is still the King of Pop in Britain - the tragic superstar is the top-selling artist there in the year since his death.
As fans gather to mark the anniversary of his death at California's Forest Lawn Cemetery, where Jackson was laid to rest in September (09), officials for Britain's Official Charts Company have revealed the Thriller singer has sold 2.8 million albums and 1.5 million singles in Britain since his passing.
Jackson's sales have placed him ahead of Canadian singer Michael Buble, who has sold just over two million albums in Britain during the same period.
The firm's researchers have also listed Jackson's top 10 biggest selling singles and albums in the U.K. since his death, to mark the year anniversary.
Hit song Man In the Mirror was the most popular track, while Billie Jean, Thriller and Smooth Criminal all sold more than 100,000 copies in the last year. The biggest selling album in Britain since the singer's death is The Essential - selling just over 600,000 copies in 12 months.
