Michael Jackson's Thriller Reaches New Certifications
On what would have been his 64th birthday, the late Michael Jackson's album Thriller was certified as Diamond for its reputation as a landmark body of work in the music landscape. After the title track initially hit diamond status in 1983, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) posthumously bestowed new certifications on signature songs from the project. “The Lady In My Life,” earned its first gold certification with “Beat It,” “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing),” and “The Girl Is Mine” is now platinum. "Billie Jean" has officially reached Diamond certification as well. Additionally, marking its 40th anniversary, an updated version of the album is set to be released in November with 15 bonus tracks, with some of the new singles to be released after Labor Day. Fans of the King of Pop can also expect several activations, a biopic and more to honor his legacy in the near future.
