1982 Flashback: Michael Jackson - Thriller

Friday 30 November marks exactly 30 years since Michael Jackson released the Thriller LP.

Prior to its release, MTV had been reluctant to play music by black entertainers. However, Jackson used the album to show the channel and the rest of the industry how music videos could be used to promote albums.

Over the next 12 months, Thriller became – and still is – the best-selling album of all time, with estimated sales of around 90 million.
