Michael Jackson ‘Breaking Records’: Certified ’28’ Times Platinum !

Michael Jackson may be touting the “This Is It” concert series over in London, but it certainly isn’t over for the iconic star’s explosive album “Thriller”. According to the RIAA, Jackson’s “Thriller” has been certified 28X times Platinum in the United States alone ! “Thriller,” released in 1982, now has the distinction of being one of the best selling albums in history with nearly 110 million copies sold worldwide. While “Thriller” has been re-released in special editions, the most recent in 2008, the original album still continues to fly off shelves with singles like “Billie Jean,” “Beat It” and “The Girl Is Mine”. In related news, Michael Jackson is said to be working on a new single for release this summer. The King of Pop’s anticipated “This Is It” concert series at London’s O2 Arena kicks off in July.
