Michael Jackson's most popular hit wasn't a solo smash or a tune with his brothers, but a track with Paul McCartney.

Billboard says Say Say Say, the late King of Pop's 1983 hit with the former Beatle, is the most popular Jackson song.

That was followed by Billie Jean, the Jackson 5 hit I'll Be There, Beat It and Rock With You.

Billie Jean was at No 1 for seven weeks, while Say Say Say held the top spot for six weeks. But the McCartney-Jackson hit stayed in the top 10 longer.

Billboard is releasing Jackson statistics ahead of the first anniversary of the music superstar's death. He died on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50.
