Michael Jackson Becomes 1st With Top 10 Singles Over 5 Decades
With the new top-10 single, Jackson becomes the first artist in history to score top-10 hits in five different decades - all of which were consecutive. The King of Pop's streak dates back to 1971, when he reached the top 10 for the first time with "Got to Be There" at No. 4.
Since then, according to Billboard, Jackson has now had 29 singles hit the top 10, third most in history. His most fruitful decade was the '80s, when 17 of his songs reached that plateau. more on this story
