Michael Jackson’s Thriller has become the highest-certified album in US history reaching 33-times platinum mark.
That means Thriller has sold 33 million equivalent album units, including digital purchases, since it was released in 1982.
And those are just US sales. According to reps for Sony and Michael Jackson’s estate, the sales for Thriller are at 105 million globally.
Over the Grammys weekend, a plaque commemorating the historic certification was presented at the home of Epic Records chairman Antonio “L.A.” Reid.
Hail the King! What else can we say.
