&#8212; Michael Jackson, The Essential Michael Jackson &#8211; No. 51 &#8212; Jackson&#8217;s best-of, along with a number of greatest-hits compilations on the chart, profit from special pricing and promotion at digital retailers.

Billboard 200:

Thriller #145- 320 weeks
Bad #170- 169 weeks

After not appearing on Billboard 200 at all in 2017, Bad has been charting for a third consecutive week. It's selling really well so far in 2018 and hopefully it will get to 200 weeks before it turns 35 in 2022.

Thriller remains as consistent as ever. I hope to see it pass 350 weeks by the end of 2018 and I think it will.

P.s I long for a day when Dangerous will chart on billboard 200 again.

Yes Dangerous needs more love but MJ has long been dismissed as an 80s only artist, despite Dangerous' great albums and single performance. The MJ Estate should be (IMO) trying to encourage the idea that MJ was bigger than that through the projects they release and statements they make, but instead they focus on BAD and Thriller most.

BAD, Thriller keep selling consistently well in the last few updates I found.

1/20/18 Billboard's Top Album Sales
Total = Chain, Independent, Mass Merchants, Non Traditional

75. JACKSON*MICHAEL|ESSENTIAL MICH 1,970 = 88 27 587 1267

113. JACKSON*MICHAEL|THRILLER 1,552 = 280 150 453 670

182. JACKSON*MICHAEL|OFF THE WALL 1,118 = 198 136 526 260

Thriller always did well but Bad & Off The Wall are benefiting big time from their respective anniversary releases. IIRC, before the 25th anniversary release of Bad, it had only spent like 90 weeks on the Billboard 200. Now it's spent like 170 weeks and is always in the top 200 best selling albums every week. Off The Wall is also in most weeks a part of the top 200 best selling albums of the week. Clearly the anniversary re-issues have helped both albums gain new audience. Dangerous needs an anniversary treatment badly. Like you said, Dangerous is a great selling album with sales of over 30 million, yet it seems to have been forgotten by the public and that's sad. I hope & pray we get a 30th anniversary edition in 2021.

Wow that seems such a long time! But yes I hope so too.

Before that we have MJ's 60th birthday and the 10th anniversary of his death. I hope the MJ Estate have big plans for those dates.

Just a question. Why are they counting sales for I Want You Back from 2009 and not from 1969 when it was released? Also on the BPI website, it states that the 600,000 sales for Thriller are from 2004. Again why are they not counting sales from when the song was first released as a single in 1983? Is there a rule that I'm not familiar with?

I wonder why Bad got a sudden surge in sales in the US. Did Sony promote it or something?

Wow PYT is really a hit with the younger audience. I thought after Billie Jean, Beat It and Thriller, that WBSS and Human Nature would be the most popular Thriller songs but no, it’s PYT instead.!

Yeah, I noticed those too since I watch his music videos on YouTube very frequently. MJ's music videos on YouTube are steadily increasing in views, a few million at a time! :) I noticed They Don't Care About Us (Brazil Version) is at 450 million now.
