Will watch this later. All for you reached 3 million and could have reached 4 million had more singles been released, it’s aged well too, which I didn’t expect.

Damita jo is a nice album too, could have easily done a minimum of 2 million in the us, I also think her not touring Europe hurt her career overseas

Imo

All for you was superior

Cheerful and full of hope for a new millennium

9/11 happened in the middle of that tour

Damita Jo was fine but not as cheerful. It didn't capture the mood. Superbowl incident was also a media out to get any Jackson they could as mj was not doing the wrong they wanted to do him for.
