This week in history, 1983 to be exact, Michael Jackson went to number one on the Billboard Charts for seven weeks with “Billie Jean.”
In honor of that, here are five facts you might not know about the song “Billie Jean.”

- The UPC bar code on the album cover apparently had seven digits that were rumored to be Jackson’s telephone number.
