The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the Estate of Michael Jackson, Epic Records and Legacy Recordings announced today that Michael Jackson’s THRILLER is the first album in RIAA Gold & Platinum Program history to be certified 30X multi-Platinum for U.S. sales, continuing The King of Pop’s reign as the biggest selling artist of all time with worldwide sales of over 100 million for Thriller and 1 billion overall.
“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.”
Michael Jackson’s masterpiece Thriller, produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson, won a record setting 8 Grammys, more than any album ever, and has been earning awards and setting new standards of success since its release on November 30, 1982.
Thriller spent nearly 2 ½ years on the Billboard album chart and holds a modern day record of 37 weeks at No. 1. It was the first album in history to spend each of its first 80 weeks in the album chart’s Top 10, a feat only reached by one other album in the more than three decades since. During its 112th week on Billboard’s album chart, it became the first title ever to be certified RIAA 20X multi-Platinum (October 30, 1984). Worldwide, Thriller went to #1 in practically every country in the world, including the UK, France, Italy, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and apartheid South Africa.
During his extraordinary career, Michael Jackson sold more than a billion records worldwide, released 13 No.1 singles and became one of a handful of artists to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Guinness Book of World Records recognized Jackson as the Most Successful Entertainer of All Time and “Thriller” as the World’s Top-Selling Album of All Time. His artistry, choreography and music continue to inspire generations of pop, soul, R&B and hip-hop artists and fans.
“It is crystal clear that Michael Jackson is simply the greatest, and biggest artist of all time,” says LA Reid, Chairman & CEO of Epic Records. “Not only are his charts hits and sales stats staggering, but his pure musicality was other-worldly. Thriller was groundbreaking and electrifying…it was perfection. I am extremely proud that Michael is the heart and soul of Epic Records and he will forever remain the one-and-only King of Pop.”
It was previously rumored that Adele turned down a proposed collaboration with Beyonce, which had the internet going wild. Adele is now refuting those claims and says that notion is surely false.
“I would never disrespect her like that. I’m such a fan, oh my God,” she told Zane Lowe during an interview on Apple Music, which was teased Tuesday. “Obviously, Queen Bey to the day I die.”
Also during the interview preview the London-born singer named some of her other favorite artists, aside from Bey, including Drake, Lana Del Rey, Alabama Shakes, Florence and the Machine and Chvrches.
Everyone can cool their jets now (looking at you, Bey Hive). A Bey/Adele record may still happen.
Snoop Dogg is not happy with Billboard’s Best Rappers List and decided to air out his displeasure yesterday.
The list, featuring Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Lauryn Hill, does not include Tupac Shakur, which struck a chord with Snoop, who collaborated with ‘Pac while he was alive.
“This is so disrespectful,” he relayed via the caption of an Instagram post featuring a picture of the Billboard list. “Whoever did this list need a swift kick in the A**. No. Tupac. Come on cuz. Jus my opinion.”
The Snoopy D-O-Double Gizzle wasn’t the only high-profile rapper who didn’t agree with the list. Jay Electronica also had issue with who was included and called out the list’s authors by posting a split picture of their Twitter avatars on his Twitter and joking, “Why is everyone so upset about the billboard list. upset over a top 10 list of rap greats written by these dudes?”
Billboard named Tupac’s nemesis Notorious B.I.G. the greatest rapper of all-time, asserting he never dropped a bad song and that, while he was alive, he was considered the greatest: “By the time his group album with Junior M.A.F.I.A. dropped the following year, and his ambitious sophomore double-disc album Life After Death bowed just six days after his passing in March 1997, he’d already earned his title as the greatest rapper of all time,” the magazine wrote.
