Michael Jackson makes history again! Thirty-three years after its release, Jackson’s Thriller album is still making headlines. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA),
Thriller has become the first album in RIAA Gold & Platinum Program history to be certified 30X Multi-Platinum for U.S. sales!
“RIAA has awarded Gold & 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,” said Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO, RIAA. “We are honored to celebrate the unique status of Thriller in Gold & Platinum history. What an exceptional achievement and testament to Thriller’s enduring spot in our hearts and musical history.”
That is incredible! Even in his death, he’s still the King of Pop!
