About King of Pop

King of Pop is a compilation album by American recording artist Michael Jackson, released in commemoration of his 50th birthday in 2008. The title comes from the moniker Jackson acquired approximately 20 years earlier. The track listing of the album differs significantly across countries because fans in each country where Sony BMG operated national offices were allowed to vote on which songs would appear on that country's edition of the album. The initial pool of songs, which also differed across countries, were selected from Jackson's back catalogue and also included a new "megamix" of five songs from the Thriller album that was created by Jason Nevins. "Billie Jean" is the only song to appear on all versions of the album. As of 2019, King of Pop has been released in a total of 28 versions; it has not been released in North America. The album's launch was made public on June 20, 2008, with the official announcement of the Australian version. The first version actually released was in Germany on August 22, 2008, with an identical Swiss version released on the same day. The final release was China's edition on December 18, 2009, following Jackson's death.
