Michael Jackson has made pop chart history in America from beyond the grave by becoming the only solo artist to score top 10 hits in five successive decades.

The King of Pop’s “Love Never Felt So Good” duet with Justin Timberlake rockets into the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 at number nine, giving Jackson an unmatched feat.

The new hit is the late superstar’s 29th top 10 – he scored his first in November, 1971, when “Got to Be There” landed at number nine on the countdown. In total, he has spent a record-breaking 42 weeks in the Hot 100 top 10.

His latest chart feat comes just days after Jackson appeared in hologram form for a show-stopping spectacle at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Meanwhile, John Legend’s “All of Me” lands a third week at number one, while Australian rapper Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” moves up a spot to two and Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” which features Azalea, returns to the top three.

Pharrell Williams’ former chart-topper “Happy” and DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” round out the new top five.
