After hitting number seven on the Billboard 200 album charts, Michael has charted in multiple other Billboard lists, including number one on the Catalog Albums chart.
The Billboard Catalog Albums rank the best-selling catalog albums. A catalog title has to be more than 18 months old. Effectively, the Catalog Albums chart is equivalent to the Billboard 200, with newer titles removed. This makes Michael’s “Thriller” number one.
Elsewhere Michael reached number two on both Billboard’s Vinyl Albums and Top R&B Albums, number four on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and number ten on the Artist 100.
This is a great success as we ramp up to celebrate the official 40th anniversary of “Thriller” tomorrow, November 30th.
