WE were so proud and happy when Whitney Houston’s signature song “I Will Always Love You” and theme song to her movie “Bodyguard” garnered over one billion views on Youtube in 2020. This is an amazing feat for an artist who is no longer here to promote her music and we respect this wonderful artist and her fanbase.
This was very encouraging for Michael Jackson Global Family who implemented a #1Billion4MJ campaign initiated by a steadfast fan @TudoPeloMichael in May of 2020, focusing primarily on Billie Jean YT video. See original post.
We would of course want all of Michael’s video to hit One Billion and with time, many will achieve that designation, but it is important for us to prioritize our attention on achievable goals. We are focusing on the top viewed FOUR Michael Jackson Youtube videos, for the Phase I, of this #1Billion4MJ campaign.
Billie Jean hit the 900,000,000 mark on Jan 2nd, 2020 and as serendipty would have it “Billie Jean” was released as the Thriller’s second single on January 2, 1983. The World Music Awards tweeted about this accomplishment and we are thrilled, to say the least, but it will take a continued effort by dedicated Global fans to reach ONE BILLION by August 2021.

We encourage all fans to develop a daily routine of searching on Youtube ALL Four of Phase I Titles and watching EACH video all the way through. As we continue to build the views on these four topped viewed Michael Jackson Youtube videos we suggest you watch some of the titles in Phase II in between viewing these four:
Smooth Criminal, Remember The Time, The Way You Make Me Feel, Black or White and Bad have views that range from 250Mil to 470Mil and as time passes their individual views will increase and our focus will shift and be concentrated on them as ALL FOUR in Phase I, will have already reached One Billion or are nearing it. This is a continous campaign as we want MULTIPLE Youtube videos of Michael Jackson to reach ONE BILLION.
Smooth Criminal views are moving at a fast pace –
Jan 1, 2021 470,454,344 – Feb 1, 2021 – 485, 926,426 – March 1 2021- 502,137,435
We will be updating views Monthly-
As always we appreciate the love and respect for Michael Jackson and your concerted efforts to give him the designation of MOST Youtube videos with One Billion Views of any deceased artist. It’s within our hands to make it a reality –
Much love and light to you all –
