Michael Jackson had dozens of hits, but it turns out his most popular song was not "Beat It" or even "Billie Jean." It was a song with another music icon. Billboard says "Say Say Say," is the most popular Jackson song.

The 1983 duet with Paul McCartney stayed in the top ten of the Billboard singles chart longer than "Billie Jean", which is the second most popular Jackson hit. That was followed by the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There," "Beat It" and "Rock with You."

Billboard is releasing the statistics to mark the first anniversary of Jackson's death on June 25. The King of Pop died at the age of 50.
