The King of Pop is regaining his chart crown.
Michael Jackson 's new single "Love Never Felt So Good" has entered the Billboard Hot 100 at #20, giving the late singer his highest charting single since 2002, when "Butterflies" reached #14. Since his death in 2009, Michael's been on the chart twice -- with "Hold My Hand" in 2011, and then again in 2013, when "Thriller" returned to the chart -- but this is his biggest posthumous hit. It's from the forthcoming album XSCAPE, due May 13.
"Love Never Felt So Good" is available both as a solo Michael song, and as a duet with Justin Timberlake , but Billboard notes that 80 percent of the sales are for the duet.
Meanwhile, Michael will be featured in some way at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards. It's been announced that the singer's estate has "created a Michael Jackson world premiere experience" which will make "television history," and which is described as "Michael Jackson like you’ve never seen him before."
There are no further details, but sources tell Showbiz411.com that MJ will appear "through an amazing new technology." Could it be some sort of Michael Jackson hologram? An insider tells the website that describing it that way "is not wrong." You'll just have to tune in and see when the Billboard Music Awards air Sunday night, May 18 on ABC, live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
