    Thriller seems to have sold quite well during the Christmas season. Thriller is a popular and a great Christmas present to give to family and friends.

    The vinyl is probably going to sell good numbers forever. It's seemingly a staple in everyone's collection and one of the early records every new collector buys.

    I agree.
    In fact, the majority of its copies sold in 2018 were in vinyl format.
    121,000 copies sold overall through 27 December 2018, the same number as 2017.
    Quite remarkable, considering pure sales in general have dropped a further 20% in 2018.
    Thriller is holding up well.

    MJ must have sold at least 400,000 albums of his catalogue in the USA in 2018, pure sales.

    If we include streaming, then his numbers must be over 1 million.

    Number Ones finishes at #63 on the year end UK album charts. It finished at #70 last year so it has risen by 7 places this year, which isn’t a surprise as it was ever present on the charts in 2018, except for the final two weeks.

    It should get there by mid 2019. The 8X certification was in mid 2016 and 7X certification was in mid 2013. It seems that Number Ones sell/stream approximately around 100,000 units per year, which is very impressive.
