This Thursday We Celebrate Michael Jackson’s Unprecedented Album; BAD

Tune in to hear an exceptional track from Michael Jackson's album, 'Bad' all day this Thursday.

 

Known as the “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson is a legendary icon. He delivered number one hits from the albums ‘Off the Wall’, ‘Thriller’ and ‘Dangerous’. With his remarkable dance moves, unforgettable outfits and most importantly his cherished songs, we celebrate 30 years of arguably one of the best albums ever created ‘Bad’.

This was his seventh studio album produced by the legend himself along with Quincy Jones. The album continued Jackson’s commercial success and led to him receiving two Grammy Awards.

Thirty years on and the results of the album speak for themselves with timeless hits, the album has paved the way for many within the industry today.

The album is a representation of Jackson himself – bold, creative and confident. Michael Jackson left behind a legacy and his notorious music videos will go down in history.

There would be no better way to celebrate the thirty year milestone of ‘Bad’ without providing some of the most iconic music videos.

To mark the occasion and celebrate his legacy, Mi-Soul will be playing a classic Micheal Jackson track on each show.
