Janet Jackson Leads Trending 140, Pentatonix’s Michael Jackson Medley Hits Top Five

The superstar siblings hit the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 with Janet's new single "No Sleeep" and a Michael Jackson-inspired Pentatonix medley!

Janet and Michael Jackson have reclaimed their high perches on Billboard charts.

Janet Jackson released her new single “No Sleeep” Monday and it quickly shot to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140, where it locked up four consecutive hours in the penthouse.

“No Sleeep” serves as the lead single from her forthcoming studio album — her first since 2008’s Discipline — and features production by longtime collaborators Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. The pair consistently partnered with Jackson from her 1986 breakthrough, Control, through 2006’s 20 Y.O.

Meanwhile, Janet’s brother Michael Jackson reaches the chart thanks to a video tribute medley from a capella superstars Pentatonix. The quintet unveiled a new video, the “Evolution of Michael Jackson,” which serves as a six-minute tour through the late King of Pop’s catalog. The track quickly strutted to No. 3 on the Trending 140.

In “Evolution,” Pentatonix revisits several Jackson tracks, ranging from his early material as a member of the Jackson 5 before sliding into some of his iconic solo records. Within the hits-packed collection, the group features 12 of his 13 solo No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and three of the four Jackson 5 tracks that reached the top. (Jackson’s tally marks the most Hot 100 chart-toppers by any male artist.)
