Dec. 7, 1991

Michael Jackson scores his 12th of 13 career Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s, as “Black or White” reaches the top in just its third week on the chart.

"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.
