Today marks the 25th anniversary of the King of Pop setting a record that only one artist has matched since
Twenty-five years ago today (July 2, 1988), Michael Jackson made history as the first act to achieve five No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 from one album. On that date, his "Dirty Diana" climbed from No. 2 to No. 1, giving Jackson his fifth and final leader from his album "Bad," his follow-up to 1982's "Thriller," the all-time best selling studio album (29-times Platinum, according to the RIAA).
"Dirty Diana" followed four prior chart-toppers from "Bad": "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" (with Siedah Garrett), the title track, "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Man in the Mirror."
