Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ loses top album spot to The Eagles!

The Eagles’ ‘Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975’ just became the best-selling album ever, edging out Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ for the top spot after the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) updated its sales figures, reports Rolling Stone. The Eagles’ album is now considered 38 times platinum, while ‘Thriller’ is 33 times platinum. The RIAA takes into consideration both sales and streaming via platforms like YouTube and Spotify. The Eagles’ hit ‘Hotel California’ is not on the album in question, as it was recorded in 1977.
