Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ Hits 300th Week on Billboard 200 Chart
It’s been more than 30 years since Michael Jackson’s monumental album Thriller hit stores but even with decades having passed, the album is still making new milestones.
On Friday, it was announced that Thriller has spent its 300th week on the Billboard 200 chart. Coming in a No. 126, the record becomes just the 16th album to ever spend 300 weeks on the chart. The album originally debuted on Dec. 25, 192 at the No. 11 spot and rose to No. 1 two months later.
Jackson’s Thriller spent 37 weeks at the top spot before falling. Last week, the album sat at No. 165 before rising to its current spot. The album also becomes the late singer’s longest-charting album, sitting comfortably ahead of his second longest, Number Ones.
