Did You Know? 

According to sources it cost $30 Million dollars to make Michael’s Invincible album. Making it the most expensive album ever produced and made. Also, Did you know the album is dedicated to  the 15 year old Afro-Norwegian boy Benjamin “Benny” Hermansen who was stabbed to death by a group of neo-Nazis in OsloThe dedication reads,

This album is dedicated to Benjamin ‘Benny’ Hermansen. May we continue to remember not to judge man by the color of his skin, but the content of his Character. Benjamin … we love you … may you rest in peace."

Michael started writing for the album in October 1997 and ended with the song "You Are My Life" which was recorded eight weeks before the album’s release in October 2001.

Overall Invincible sold 363,000 units in its first week and sold a total 13 million worldwide without promotion. 

When promotion was dropped Michael 
accused Sony and also the record industry of racism saying they deliberately were not promoting or where actively working against promotion of his album. Sony’s response to Michaels accusation was that they fully promoted his album with energy but their reason for dropping it “early” was because Michael refused to tour in the US.
