    1. Don’t worry Mat. An article for Michael Jackson will definitely come soon. MJD is a huge MJ fan so just wait. 🙂

  1. Hi MID,

    Could you do Diana Ross and the Supremes, similar to how you did Beyonce.

    I am certain that the Supremes are still the top selling female group ever.

  2. I bet this long pause and wait is because the next artist that MJD analyzes is Cher or he is on holiday vacation !!!
