Michael Jackson, better known as the King of Pop is still breaking records even six years after his tragic death. Thirty years later, Thriller became the first album in music history to cross the 30 million rank in the United States.
According to Cary Sherman, Chief Executive of Recording Industry Association of America, “RIAA has awarded gold and platinum records on behalf of the music business for nearly 60 years, but this is the first time an artist has crossed the 30X multi-platinum plateau.”
Thriller, was released in 1982 and won an abundance of awards for hits like “Beat It” and “Billie Jean” along with its title track making it the bestselling album of all time.
Michael Jackson, still remains the bestselling artist of all time and one of my favorite performers.
