Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ Is Now Certified 33-Times Platinum

 

 

Michael Jackson’s classic album "Thriller" has broken another record after being certified 33-times platinum in the United States.

According to reports:

The 1982 record remains the highest certified album, and earlier this month, the album certification was raised from 30 million to 32 million units after bosses at the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) changed their rules to include individual tracks and streams, according to Billboard.com.

Thriller is the only album to pass the organization's 30 million mark for copies sold.
