Today in MJJ HIStory
1995 – 5 days after its release “HIStory” entered the Billboard Chart at #1 in US, and debuted & peaked at #1 in 12 countries around the world. Michael indeed made history with “HIStory“! The album becomes the best-selling double album of all time! Also the fastest-selling album in Michael’s career. Unprecedented 7 million copies were sold worldwide in the first week!
With “HIStory” – without a doubt his most personal album – Michael told “His Story” about the false allegations, the lies, the avaricious people, and the tabloids while the song’s themes included environmental awareness, isolation, greed, and injustice. “HIStory” became a tremendous success all around the world (with worldwide sales of over 20×2 million copies) and clearly answered the question: “Will he make history or is he history?” The album proved once more why Michael is the world’s greatest entertainer and the undisputed King of Pop!
