Today In Michael Jackson History (July 2nd)

1984 – “Victory”, by the Jacksons, was released. Epic Records set a record as two million copies of the Jacksons’ “Victory” were shipped to stores. The album became a hit and was also the last album of The Jacksons as a group. It was the first time that such a large initial shipment had been made.



1988 Michael’s single “Dirty Diana” from the “Bad” album becomes the 5th consecutive single to peak at #1 on the Hot 100.

The feat made him the first artist to have five #1 singles from one album. The hard-rock song was written by Michael & co-produced with Quincy Jones; features guitar solo by Steve Stevens. Michael is featured in The Guinness Book of World Records as the artist with the most number one hits in the eighty’s

    Hi Bonnie, just one important piece of history you left out. The Jackson 5 performed in Sydney at the Hordern Pavilion also on this day (2 July) in 1973 as part of their first Australian tour.

    Hope you’re OK. 🙂 <3
