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.

At the time, Michael Jackson was one of the least frightening people on Earth, so the video had to sell it. John Landis, who worked on the 1981 movie An American Werewolf In London, was brought in to direct. Landis had Jackson turn into a Werewolf in the video. Thriller is by far the best selling album in the world. In the United States, it was overtaken by The Eagles Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, but reclaimed the title after Jackson's death. This was the last of seven US Top 10 hits from the Thriller album. The first single from the album, "The Girl Is Mine," reached its peak chart position of on January 8, 1983. The song "Thriller" was released over a year later, on January 23, 1984, peaking at on March 3. This lifespan of chart singles from one album was unprecedented, but so was the video for "Thriller.

Thriller is the sixth studio album by Michael Jackson. It was recorded between April and November 1982 and was released on November 30, 1982. Seven of the nine songs on the album became singles, and all hit number one on charts. The album received amazing critical reception, winning numerous awards, eight in the year 1984 alone and becoming the best-selling album of all time, and still holds that record till today.

Off the Wall was a massive success, spawning four Top Ten hits (two of them number ones), but nothing could have prepared Michael Jackson for Thriller. Nobody could have prepared anybody for the success of Thriller, since the magnitude of its success was simply unimaginable - an album that sold 40 million copies in its initial chart run, with seven of its nine tracks reaching the Top Ten (for the record, the terrific "Baby Be Mine" and the pretty good ballad "The Lady in My Life" are not.
