Posthumous Michael Jackson Number One denied by Cascada

But the King Of Pop is at the summit of the albums chart again

Michael Jackson has been denied a posthumous Number One single by Cascada tonight (July 5).

The Euro-pop group’s ‘Evacuate The Dancefloor’ hit the top spot in the UK singles chart, with the late King Of Pop‘s 1988 song ‘Man In The Mirror’ at Number Two.

As was the case last week (June 31), Michael Jackson tracks – solo and with the The Jackson Five and The Jacksons – dominate the rest of the chart, with ‘Billie Jean’, ‘Thriller’, ‘Smooth Criminal’ and ‘Beat It’ all in the Top 20 and a further 22 songs featuring in the Top 75.

Meanwhile, his ‘The Essential’ compilation went to Number One in the albums chart, taking over from ‘Number Ones’, which went down to Number Three.

It was among five Jackson entries in the Top 10, which also saw La Roux‘s self-titled debut album debut at Number Two.
