Today marks the birthday of one of the most iconic visual artists in music history.  From Jackson's 1969 breakout performance of "I Want You Back" with the Jackson 5, to his 1984 landmark album Thriller (which became the first album to accumulate seven Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and held the number 1 spot for 37 weeks) Jackson's career was nothing short of extraordinary. Michael Jackson not only commanded the charts with his astonishing worldwide success throughout his career but went on to remain one of the most renowned music legends of all time through his iconic videos, performances, and style.

Jackson set the bar that every subsequent album, song, or musical act would measure itself against. Jackson's legacy still lives on as he remains one of the most—if not the most—transcendent musical performer of all time.  In honor of the late star's birthday, VMAN has compiled our favorite music videos of Jacksons over the course of his career while TIDAL has devised a stellar tribute video to honor the star's legacy.
