Thriller has been selling really well over the past two months. It's constantly in the top 100 albums sales chart. It definitely must have sold more than it did in 2018, at this stage. I think a 34X certification isn't too far away.

Worth noting that Thriller is consistently outselling the Eagles' GH on a weekly basis.
And track sales and streamings from The Essential, which is also performing very well, count towards Thriller as far as certifications go

Maybe someday Thriller will be certfied higher than the Eagles Greatest Hits again.

Thriller should be way higher , I remember it had hundreds of millions of views before MJ died but then it was reset back to zero. By rights Thriller should be well over a billion.

The Eagles have never outsold Thriller. This has always been an industry and media conspiracy.
The more I research the more I starting to believe so.

BTW, there is no way that Eagles would have outsold Michael had the RIAA not allowed, in the mid 1990s, to count sales from music clubs into certifications.
The Eagles clearly benefitted from this new rule more than Michael did.

TDCAU will eventually reach 1,000,000,000 views on youtube but it will probably take another 2.5-3 years at least.

Happy to see the stupid "doc" has not ruined MJ's sales or streams.

^Any affect the documentary will have on sales and streams will be reflected on next weeks charts. I&#8217;m curious to see how this flopumentary will impact Michael&#8217;s sales and streams. Michael usually has at least two albums charting each week on the US charts. Will that change next week? Will we see MJ completely disappear from the US charts? Or will we see a rise in the charts for MJ? Will we see more MJ albums on the charts? I&#8217;m extreme curious and can&#8217;t wait for next weeks charts.

MJ's albums are surging in sales on both streaming and Itunes apparently. In the UK I-Tunes MJ has FIVE albums charting, three in the US he has three, Canada has two albums charting. And in New Zealand his NUMBER ONES has surged to #2.

FLASHBACK.

I still have in my records, the Soundscan report of Michael's sales for the week following the verdict on 13 June 2005.
There it is.

Sales For The Week Ending June 19th, 2005/Billboard Issue Date: July 2nd, 2005.
1. Number Ones: 8,660 (3,631) (+139%) (#134 on Billboard 200, #49 on Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, 27 weeks on the chart.)
2. Thriller (Special Edition): 5,839 (2,423) (+141%) (Top 5 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Catalog Chart and Top 30 on the Billboard Top Pop Catalog Chart.)
3. Number Ones (Video): 4,785 (2,300) (+108%) (#13 on the Billboard Comprehensive Music Videos Chart, 65 weeks on the chart.)
4. Greatest Hits: HIStory Vol. 1: 3,064 (1,057) (+190%)
5. Off the Wall (Special Edition): 1,603 (619) (+159%)
6. Greatest Hits: HIStory (Video): 719 (327) (+120%)
7. Bad (Special Edition): 704 (238) (195%)
8. HIStory on Film- Vol. 2 (Video): 615 (314) (+96%)
9. Dangerous (Special Edition): 494 (206) (+140%)
10. HIStory: Past, Present, and Future, Book I (2-CD): 344 (123) (+180%)
11. Invincible: 271 (124) (+119%)
12. Blood on the Dance Floor: 68 (35) (+94%)

27,166 copies.

He more than doubled the sales compared to the prior week.
In 2004-2008, reports like this use to leak quite often.

This is not surprising as MJ fans are campaigning to buy his records again. This is only a temporary effect. I doubt this doc will make people want to rush to a store to buy MJ music so I conclude those sales are purely coming from fans.

Crawl back to the rock you came from.
Go and and try to deceive someone else with your propaganda.

I want to challenge you with a questionnaire about MJ's music. If you're up for it we can set a date and be both on the chatbox here. Someone asks the question and we answer. You'll be surprised how big a fan I am.
