Ben was the second full-length solo album.
Released in August 1972, eight months after his auspicious debut as a soloist, the album featured more ballads than his debut.
The album sold on the strength of Jackson's first number-one pop single with the title track and was named as the album title to help boost up album sales.
None of the other songs from the album were issued as singles and one of the songs, "In Our Small Way", originally issued on Got to Be There, was featured on this album.
Michael Jackson stunned everyone by scoring a huge hit with a song about a rat on this 1972 release.
He was just beginning to make his way outside the family unit, and the single actually did better on the pop side than on the R&B charts, topping the pop list but peaking at number five on the R&B survey.
The remainder of the album was good to above-average pop, establishing for any doubters that Jackson was going to succeed, indeed thrive, on his own.
