JHP World is mourning the heartbreaking loss of Michael Jackson and sharing in the same tear-jerking grief that’s affecting millions of his fans all over the world.
“Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight, here one day, gone one night. Like a sunset dying with the rising of the moon… Gone too soon.” – Michael Jackson
With that said, Publicist Jonathan Hay has had both the honor and privilege to work with Michael Jackson’s producer, Teddy Riley, historically known for his production on Michael Jackson’s Dangerous album, which has astonishingly sold over 32 Million albums to date — and still counting.
Teddy Riley also worked with Michael Jackson on the HIStory release, which is the best-selling multiple disc (Double Album) ever released — over 40 Million Units.
Michael Jackson and Teddy Riley reunited in the studio for Blood On The Dance Floor, which has sold over 6 Million albums to date, making it the best-selling remix album to date. And then finally, Riley worked on Michael Jackson’s final and remarkable studio album, Invincible, which has had over 10 Million in sales.
Teddy Riley’s legendary work with Michael Jackson will truly live forever. It will continue to sell and will always be an important artifact in the history of the King of Pop.
In 2007, super-producer Riley was being attacked by the media due to a string of rumors and speculation surrounding his financial stability at the time. Jonathan Hay went to his defense by posting a much talked about article on BallerStatus, which quickly circulated the internet and put some of the rumors to rest.
Check back with JHP World, as here in the future Hay will share some of his own personal experiences in and out of the recording studio with Bruce Swedien – the engineer and mixer of all of Michael Jackson’s solo albums, including Thriller – the best selling album of all-time.
