Hey, I have a question. Did that viral video of lady trying to induce a labour while dancing to Thriller make Thriller to chart:D

I wonder how much long Thriller is going to be on 29xP or isn't time to certify it 30xP?

I think it's long passed the 30 million mark. But it's up to the record label to ask for an update in the certification.

Respect, I tried to find the original article or post from OFFICIAL CHARTS COMPANY but couldn't find it?

There is no "article". It's from this chart geek's forum where they make all kind of calculations etc: http://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=63110&p=5508681

Hence: "Thanks Pierpinto"

This bit threw me off the rails
OFFICIAL CHARTS COMPANY (UK)
MOST SUCCESSFUL UK CHART ACTS
AS OF 19TH FEBRUARY, 2015

There is an Official Charts Company in UK (http://www.officialcharts.com/home/)
so I thought that came from them, which would have made that list "Official", but as that list comes from Pierpinto, it is not "official" in a sense, and I don't think it is ok to use Official Charts Company in the headline:-( It is kind of misleading, but ok, I know now it is from Pierpinto's own "official" chart.

I guess it just means he took the data from the official charts. He explained his calculation method:

Calculated by the amount of weeks on the chart for both Singles and Albums combined. One point is gained for each week an album/or single appears in the Top 75:

Are these numbers official?? - And if so, why are Thriller and BAD not certified better?

ALSO - if Thriller had already sold 67 million copies in 1990. - then it seems realistic that Thriller has now sold (25 years later!) around 100 million copies. - In 1990 many propably still had Thriller on MC (tape) or LP - they have maybe bought a CD version later, and maybe also 2001 special edition and T25.

^ These are global numbers which are never "official" the same way as RIAA certifications are considered "official". There is no official certification for global sales, they are simply counted together from single national sales numbers.

And these are not the sales for 1990, these are the sales for now.
