MJ’s Thriller Turns 28 Today

Today, one of the greatest albums of all time turns 28 years young. To reiterate, Michael Jackson’s Thriller is the best selling album of all time with life to date sales estimated between 65 to 110 MILLION Units. Taylor Swift does 5 million units of an album these days and people are ready to erect a statue of her. Like Cy Young’s 511 career wins, MJ’s Thriller sales record will never be broken.

As we like to say at Cosby Sweaters…”game recognize game.”
