Thriller is the sixth studio album by American singer Michael Jackson, released on November 30, 1982, in the United States by Epic Records and internationally by CBS Records. It explores genres similar to Jackson's previous album, Off the Wall (1979), including pop, post-disco, rock and funk.

Released August 10, 1979. Off the Wall Tracklist. 1. Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough Lyrics. The album also went 7x Platinum in Italy, 6x Platinum in the UK and New Zealand, 5x Platinum in Australia, 3x Platinum in Canada, 2x Platinum in Japan and Platinum in Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Michael Jackson made his debut at the age of six with the Jackson 5 (later known as the Jacksons), who were prominent performers during the 1970s. Jackson's early solo career that same decade included albums such as Got to Be There and Ben. His two follow-ups, Music & Me and Forever, Michael, failed to sell well. In 1979, Jackson released Off the Wall, which became his first best-selling album. Three years later, Jackson issued his best-selling album to date, Thriller, which topped several international charts and became the best-selling album of all time

Off the Wall is the fifth solo studio album by American singer Michael Jackson, released on August 10, 1979 in the United States by Epic Records and internationally by CBS Records. It was Jackson's first album released through Epic Records, the label he recorded under until his death in 2009, and the first produced by Quincy Jones, whom he met while working on the 1978 film The Wiz. Several critics observed that Off the Wall was crafted from funk, disco, soft rock, Broadway and pop ballads

This album changed the game in a lot of ways, but most especially where it comes to the music-video genre. In short, it was a work of genius. While Thriller is itself a masterpiece, it is by no means Michael’s best album. Of course, my saying this in Slack this morning started a big debate with my co-workers.

Michael Jackson’s music and short films continue to thrill fans and inspire artists all over the world. These new certifications are a testament to Michael’s continued legacy, Richard Story, President CMG, Sony Music Entertainment. Michael’s music and spirit has proved exciting and relevant to each succeeding generation, and that is borne out by these tremendous numbers and the kinds of artists who gravitate to and are inspired by his music, noted John Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson had recorded solo prior to the release of Off the Wall in 1979, but this was his breakthrough, the album that established him as an artist of astonishing talent and a bright star in his own right. This was a visionary album, a record that found a way to break disco wide open into a new world where the beat was undeniable, but not the primary focus - it was part of a colorful tapestry of lush ballads and strings, smooth soul and pop, soft rock, and alluring funk.
