Follow the musical evolution of The King of Pop with this collection of his mighty solo albums. See how MJ changed the game with some record-setting efforts that will almost never be broken.
Off The Wall (1979)
Michael Jackson’s fifth album blew onto the scene and shook up the foundation of music. This would be his first effort with Quincy Jones and the results were astounding. Lead single “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” helped power the album to sell 7 million copies and officially launch Jackson’s massive celebrity status.
On Nov. 30, 1982, Jackson gave the world Thriller. Refining the pop and dance aesthetic of Off The Wall, Thrillerwould explode onto the charts with a staggering 80 consecutive weeks in the top ten, with 37 of those weeks being at #1. It was also the first album to have seven Billboard Hot 100 top 10 singles including “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” “Thriller” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin.” It has been called the best-selling album of all time as it went double diamond (29 million sold and counting).
