‘Thriller’ was Michael’s best-selling album, and after his death, its sales rocketed to 110 million copies, worldwide.
His next album, ‘Bad,’ also did extremely well selling at least 30 million copies worldwide.
But Michael always wanted to do better than the last album, and was determined to do so with ‘Bad.’ “He always wanted to surpass what he had done previously and 100 million albums sold,” Lee said. “He was determined to do that.”
The 25 year anniversary of ‘Bad’ is on August 31st and Epic records are releasing multiple re-packaged editions on September 18th. The collection will include Spike Lee’s documentary, unreleased demo songs, remixes, concert footage and, of course, the original LP.
It can be pre-ordered at all the usual on line outlets.
