    Oh wow.
    Not bad, I actually expected it to quite a bit further down then #14 by now.
    Overall, discounted or not Thriller charting so high in 2017 and nowhere near October is so random (in a good way).
    It seems some other albums may have been discounted as well, but only Thriller reached #2.

    34 years ago on March 11, Billie Jean's video premiered on MTV. Perhaps that might be the reason behind the sudden boost in Thriller's sales.

    It's going to be in the top 40 of the BB200 this coming week, having moved over 10,000 units.

    Well damn!
    Thriller is really out here trying to come for that 34x platinum certification while you have some artists/entertainers who are alive, touring, and making music that can't even go double paper clip.
    Slay King.
    Michael was/is one of the few artist/entertainers that had the hype PLUS the talent and stats to back it up.

    Thriller has been the #16 best selling album of this past week on pure album sales acc. to Hits Daily Double.




    On a sales + streaming basis it is #37.



    Not bad from a 35-year-old album.

    Good performance there, but it shows that a sale price is now not as important in promoting an album as it used to be.

    What's the standard price for Thriller at iTunes in US and what was the discount price?

    $5.41 according to the screen cap posted earlier in this thread.



    BTW, Thriller wasn't the only album on sale. From time to time they put selected classic albums on sale. For example, Purple Rain was also on sale at the same time as Thriller and it climed up to #5 while Thriller was #2. I think a number of other classic albums were on sale as well. Fleetwood Mac Rumours is at #32 on this week's pure sales chart, Bob Marley Legend at #43. I think all these and more were on sale.

    Imagine if the sale was like $2.00 or something. It could maybe even get to number 1. I would like to see how Bad and Off The Wall would do if they were discounted.

    Me too!
    The full length Bad short film already has 2.8M+ views on YouTube, and was posted in January.

    I haven't been following about this upcoming Thriller project (I'm a bit Thrillered out to be honest).... what's it supposed to be? Another re-release? A documentary?

    The UK chart used to have eligibility rules like minimum pricing. I don't know if it still does or if they have similar rules for Billboard.
