👑THE GREATEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME👑
On November 30, 1982 , Michael Jackson’s legendary Thriller album was released in (almost) the entire world.
Officially recognized as the best-selling album of all time, with its 110 million copies overall (although there are those who estimate them in 70/75), Thriller will receive a total of 101 platinum discs , 17 diamond discs , 8 gold records and 7 Grammy Awards , reaching the No. 1 position in the charts of over 20 countries, including ITALY.In the United States alone, it will sell a whopping 33 million copies- of which one million in the second half of 2009 - corresponding to the same number of platinum records (the last one awarded on February 17, 2017).
Just the surge of 2009, which occurred following the death of Michael, will return to Thriller the scepter of the best-selling album in the USA. Thriller will also be the first album ever to place all the singles extracted from it - seven out of nine - in the top 10 of the prestigious US Billboard Hot 100 chart .
In chronological order: The Girl Is Mine (n ° 2),Billie Jean (# 1), Beat It (# 1), Wanna Be Startin ‘Somethin’ (# 5), Human Nature (# 7), PYT [Pretty Young Thing] (# 10) and Thriller ( n ° 4).And thanks to the iconic short film of the track that gives the album its title, the King of Pop will grab a further record: the home video The Making of Thriller is in fact, even today, the best-selling videotape in history , with over 9 million copies distributed all over the world.
And since VHS is now prehistoric, it will be forever.
Considered one of the most impactful albums in the American cultural tradition,in 2008 Thriller was also officially included in the prestigious American Library of Congress, as a National Treasury .
« 'Thriller’ was more than just a record: it was a mass cultural and multimedia phenomenon, never equaled.
It marked the birth of a new sound, a new musical era, a new concept of pop star and pop music.
It overcame all imaginable barriers, reaching young and old, black and white, rich and poor.
It conquered both rock and r & b fans, crossing the borders of the United States to reach the Soviet Union, Europe, Asia, Africa and every corner of the earth.
With only nine songs, three videos and an unforgettable performance, 'Thriller’ has been, for nearly thirty years, the Holy Grail of pop ».

Facts don’t lie, people do.
This deserves to be shared over and over again! Facts don’t lie; people do…
Hey there! I know it’s been a while without posting anything. Nonetheless, I’d love to take a few minutes to remember the outstanding, brilliant musical genius and wonderful human being Michael was. Even though he’s no longer here physically, his music is listened by millions every single day. No other artist has been able to have such a great impact as he did. Wherever you are now, happy birthday Michael! ✨🎉💙.
11 years ago today, the world sadly had to witness the unexpected passing of an exceptional human being; someone who cared about his loved ones, and also wanted to spread a positive message around in order to raise awareness about living together as one. It definitely hurts not to be able to see him physically any longer; however, he’ll live forever in the wonderful music he created with much enthusiasm and love. Thanks for all the magic, sir! ✨
May you rest in peace, MJ!!! 💙. Gone but never forgotten…
“I love to read. I wish I could advise more people to read. There’s a whole new world in books. If you can’t afford to travel, you travel mentally through reading. You can see anything and go any place you want to in reading” Michael Jackson
I’m aware that I won’t ever understand what it feels to suffer every day due to the color of my skin; however, I just want you to know that I stand for this movement, and I support the people fighting for their rights. No prejudice, no hate, no racism! We are all the same…
