MJ's Heaven Can Wait just became a worldwide hit ( part 2)

Almost exactly two years ago, I opened a thread about the fact that Heaven Can Wait was gaining a lot of popularity on streaming services.

As a reminder :
https://prince.org/msg/8/...?&pg=1

At the beginning of the thread, HCW had 14 million streams on Spotify.
Two months after it reached the 20 M mark on Spotify, 6 M on YouTube.

Now, the song enjoys a 82,890,799 streams on Spotify, where it ranks at the #37 best streamed songs of MJ solo catalogue !
That is huge, with
an enduring interest for that song with still 100k streams a day.

It beats two Thriller songs ( Baby be Mine, Lady In My Life), Blood On The Dance-Floor, Jam, Rockin Robin, Give in To Me...

Where will it stop?
For months, It s just behind Ben 84 millions, but with an average of only 27k streams a day, so Heaven Can Wait has a better dynamic and will rank higher eventually.

I don't get why MJ Estate doesn't do a singles reissue campaign similar to Janet, Madonna, Mariah etc.

.

I want things like Remember The Time Silk Hurley remixes, Black or White C+C Remixes, YRMW remix with Jay-Z, Butterflies remix with Eve, Blood On The Dancefloor remix single with Fugees Remix.

.

It so odd to me that the estate has not focused on sharing with the world his actual released music.

if it was just a dream, call me a dreamer 2

You Re damn right.
They could have done for years record store days with vinyl reissues of rare singles, like Smile, Is It Scary, Ghosts, This Time Around, Butterflies, Unbreakable, so yes they could do Heaven Can Wait too...

So fuck MJ estate, and fuck Prince estate.
Both artists have estate that suck a lot compared to what they could do.
