    Well, it depends on how the records are counted. They changed the rules during the run of the game, that's the reason why f.e. Bieber-Baby, sorry Bieber's "Baby" is said to be more successful now than "Candle In The Wind". They're now counting the online streamings as "sales". That's why I believe that the same way Jacko's record will be beaten. The sad truth.

    Nope. And I don't think it will ever be broken. That era when people used to buy records has passed, and Michael Jackson was the most popular of that time and still is. It is highly unlikely this will repeat for another artist.

    I don't want to believe it but yes.Adele managed to beat Michael's record..When I read it in an article on the Internet I couldn't believe it because I didn't and I don't think that anyone can beat The King Of Pop.But eventually Adele beat him:(

    Here's the article that I found out that Adele beat MJ:

    No and I don't think anyone will, other than Yahshua when he comes back! As far as MJ goes, he is undoubtedly the most impactful entertainer this world has ever seen and, THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!! BTW, please vote for MJ as the world's most famous person. Google Most Famous Person Award 2013 and it will show you the site.

    Beyonce just beat an MJ record. She is now the highest paid black artist of all time. And I'm sure she has just beaten his Wembley record on ticket sales. Sold out Wembley 2 nights in a rows so far. 90,000 people per night. Sold out in 10 minutes
