Invincible is Michael Jackson's 10th and last studio album, released on October 30, 2001.

Promotion

Jackson wanted to promote the album more than it had however due to the negligence of Jackson's record label Sony Music the album received only small promotion. It only had 2 singles, and only one of them was in the Top 50. For this reason, he made 4 promotional only singles released: Break of Dawn, Butterflies, Speechless and Heaven Can Wait. Originally, Jackson was going to do an "Invincible World Tour", but it was later cancelled due to the minimal promotion it was receiving.  He however performed You Rock My World for the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Special. The album charted #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart for just one week, only to be replaced by Britney Spears' third studio album released around the same time.
