The Leaving Neverland documentary, which chronicles rather shocking sexual abuse allegations from two alleged victims against Michael Jackson, seems to have caused the former king of pop’s music
The intense 2-part film was broadcast globally, and features interviews with Wade Robson and James Safechuck. They have both accused the late singer of molesting them as children.
Jacksons tracks are available on Apple Music, Spotify and other music platforms and as an unintended consequence, they have seen a steep climb after the documentary aired.
Jackson’s Number One’s, the 2005 collection, The Essential Michael Jackson, 1987 Bad as well as Thriller have all reportedly entered back in the top 200 chart!
Loyal Michael Jackson Fans
Jackson has some die hard fans. They have in fact vowed not to stop listening to his music even after the controversial documentary aired whilst on the other hand, some radio stations have gone as far as removing his music from their playlists.
Since the Pop Star’s death, his estate collected a reported $2.1 billion from his music catalogue as well as other musical endorsements.
Huffington Post also reported that a jukebox musical based on the making of his 1992 world tour is going to open on Broadway in 2020, which is being developed by his estate.
Leaving Neverland Documentary
Following the documentary airing, the Jackson family have denied all of the allegations against the late singer, claiming that the HBO as well as Channel 4 film is “all about the money”.
The documentary is not an easy one to watch and has certainly painted the musical icon in a new light for some.
