As many as eight posthumous Michael Jackson albums could be released following the success of 'Xscape' earlier this year, reports suggest.

With Jackson renowned for recording a wealth of different songs for consideration on each of his studio albums, there is believed to be lots of material in the vaults and Rolling Stone reports that "eight more albums culled from outtakes and repackaged material could be released".

"We got more surprises coming," says producer Rodney Jerkins, who worked as a producer on 'Xscape' alongside Timbaland and Stargate. "I'm sure there are a few more great things out there," says Jerkins, "and, hopefully, we'll all have a chance to hear them."

'Xscape' became Jackson's 10th Official Albums Chart Number One album in the UK upon its release last month. However, the album failed to reach the top spot in America and was pipped to the post by The Black Keys and their album 'Turn Blue.'

Meanwhile, a Michael Jackson hologram appeared at the Billboard Music Awards last month (May 18) in Las Vegas. The hologram was 'wearing' a white and gold jacket and red trousers and performed the song 'Slave to the Rhythm'.
