In the aftermath of Michael Jackson's death, global sales of his albums have soared, and there are rumors that unreleased songs and albums will generate millions of more dollars. But he's not alone. The music world is full of legendary recording artists whose popularity lived on long after them. Whole generations of listeners who weren't even alive when such stars as Elvis, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Buddy Holly died continue to buy their music, whether downloading them from iTunes or purchasing them from Amazon. In fact, many late musicians saw their sales spike after their death. What were the most popular posthumous albums? Read on to find out.
Editor's Note: The Highest-charting albums refer to the Billboard 200 ranking. The Album sales come from Nielsen SoundScan and only include sales after 1991 when the company began tracking sales figures. For Michael Jackson, the company provided sales figures starting after his death on June 25.
