Dare I say that Michael Jackson is the greatest selling entertainer ever? Even after leaving us in 2009?
His legendary album, Thriller, has broken the ultimate record…the record EVERY artist in music wish they could break. According to Rolling Stone, Thriller (released 1982), has officially become the first LP to be recognized for selling 30 million copies. The Recording Industry Association of America, in association with the singer’s estate and record labels, confirmed the news Wednesday. The record has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide, they reported, and claimed that Jackson had sold 1 billion albums total.
This news comes as no surprise to many of us. Thriller is the most record-breaking, award-winning, ground-breaking album in music history. The “short film” to The single “Thriller” is the only music video to be officially inducted into the U.S. National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Yeah…I think it’s safe to say that MJ is the greatest entertainer, dead and alive.
Long live Michael
