MJ's iTUNES DOMINATION
It's just three days after the shock death of the King Of Pop and it seems fans the world over can't get enough of his music. He's infiltrating the top 100 over on the UK singles charts this week, will no doubt dominate the official Billboard charts this Thursday and already on iTunes in Australia, it's seems that Michael Jackson fever is well and truly alive. Here on a Monday morning, no less than 37 songs in the Australian iTunes top 100 are either by the singer solo or part of collaborations (either with the Jacksons, Jackson 5 or 'We Are The World'). He occupies a quarter of the iTunes Australia top 20 as we type (Nos.9, 10, 13, 16 and 19) with his biggest song being 'Man In The Mirror' at No.9. No doubt sales of his CDs and digital tracks will impact greatly on next weekend's official ARIA charts, with rumours of up to 100,000 copies of his CDs selling out of stores across Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Sony Music is frantically pressing extra copies of all of his back catalogue to keep up with demand and it's anticipate that stock will begin to trickle through into stores within the next week. We'll bring you all the sales next Monday morning.
