Michael Jackson Discography











Michael Jackson Discography


Michael Jackson's 1982 album "Thriller " is second behind the Eagles' first greatest hits album in all-time sales in the United States. Forbes magazine estimates that Jackson was earning $50 million a year in the '80s, but by the end of the decade he was garnering more attention for his freakish persona than his music. Sales of recent Jackson albums have declined, though he's still a Platinum artist.
