Michael Jackson Most Downloaded Artist of All Time

Michael Jackson continues to set records even after his death. According to new records, the King of Pop is the most downloaded artist of all time.

Musicologist Geoff Roberts from Nokia's Ovi Music Store that conducted the search says, "Michael Jackson has always been a pop music legend. But the anniversary of his death and upcoming birthday celebrations seem to have revived Jackson fever as fans rediscover his songs - making him the most popular solo artist of all time."

He beats out Lady Gaga, Elvis, the Black Eyed Peas and Rihanna for the most downloads. But the U.S. still isn’t where he’s the most popular—it’s India!

There, Michael accounts for 26 per cent of the country's entire Ovi downloads, followed by the UK, Germany, Netherlands and Finland.

They don’t call him the King of Pop for nothing! Other artists may be at the top of the charts right now, but it takes a superstar to stay there even after death.
