People Are Still Willing to Shell Out for Michael Jackson Albums

Michael Jackson's estate is well on its way to raking in $200 million this year, and the recent release of the This Is It soundtrack is only helping to stuff the coffers. Consumers snapped up roughly 373,000 copies of the record last week, making this Jackson's first album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 100 since 2001's Invincible. [Rock & Roll Daily/RS]
