This just makes me happy as a fan that Thriller is so far reaching and resonated with so many people and to this day, 32 years later it still does. It's incredible to me as a fan and I'm so proud.  ;D

First in history to reach 30X Platinum!!

I can't say that I'm a fan, but I'm not a hater either. It's because I'm a numbers person that I posted this news. See? It's my numbers obsession that made me do it.  :)

I am a numbers guy as well, but I am a bit more extreme ...

In November of 2013, the song 'Thriller' returned to the US charts for 1 week where it peaked at #42.  In November of 2014, it returned again, peaking at #35, then once again in November of 2015 where it reached #45

Since 2007, the song has also returned to the UK chart in November of every year except 2011:
2007 - UK #57
2008 - UK #35
2009 - UK #26
2010 - UK #68
2012 - UK #49
2013 - UK #48
2014 - UK #57
2015 - UK #61

The UK is where the song has charted the most, but that's no surprise.  Most often, when a known song appears in a popular UK TV advert, it can spark enough downloads on iTunes to make the charts

Goodie! Plus, Thriller beat The Eagles' Greatest Hits, or whatever it's called. Both were tied at 29X Platinum, not anymore. At least for now, only Michael stands at 30X Platinum.

and so many songs came from that album.


Selling 10 million albums in the US alone, is a huge and very hard feat. Imagine selling 30 million!  :o  :o
