"Thriller" went and turned 30 on us. Did you know…

1] With sales of 29 million, according to the RIAA, “Thriller” is the best-selling studio album in U.S. history. The set is tied with the Eagles’ best-of collection, “Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975.” 

2] "Thriller" has spent the most weeks (37) atop the Billboard 200 of any album by a single artist. Only the "West Side Story" soundtrack (54) has reigned longer. 

3] "Thriller" is the only album by a male artist to generate five Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles. YIKES, THAT WAS ‘BAD’

4] The “Thriller” No. 1s “Billie Jean” and “Beat It” are two of Jackson’s 13 Hot 100 leaders, the most of any solo male artist. 

5] "Thriller" became the first album to generate seven Hot 100 top 10 hits.
