Michael Jackson Possibly Releasing Eight Posthumous Albums, Singer's Estate Confirms
This May's hologram performance of late icon Michael Jackson might have been just the beginning of King of Pop's numerous posthumous efforts, as the singer's estate has announced plans for releasing as much as eight new albums.

"We got more surprises coming," said producer Rodney Jerkins, who worked on MJ's latest effort, "Xscape."

As Rolling Stone further reports, "an even deeper excavation" of Jackson's vaults should be expected in the years to come. Although Estate representatives didn't say how many unreleased tunes are usable, Michael was very well-known for over-recording.

Sony Music's former CEO Tommy Mottola revealed that the vocalist used to work on up to 20 or even 30 songs for each album, leaving "tens and twenties" of tunes in the vault. In conclusion, Jerkins added, "I'm sure there are a few more great things out there and, hopefully, we'll all have a chance to hear them."

As for "Xscape," the album did initially top the charts, but had a big second-week drop to No. 2. In the words of former Epic Records executive Dan Beck, "After a while, a certain part of the audience stops listening."
